Jaguar XF with new engine

The new 2014 Jaguar XF received an update in terms of engine. We are actually talking about the 4-cylinder, 2.2-liter ECO2 diesel unit that powers it. This type of engine is now available for the Saloon and the Sportbrake versions and it is capable of generating 163 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. It is a combination between elegance and real-world efficiency and it helps reducing the tax burdens on drivers and fleet managers alike, but maintaining the luxury and refinement associated with the XF range.

The engine comes together with the Intelligent Stop-Start system and an 8-speed transmission. This actually enables the 2014 model year to offer performance and driver appeal expected of a Jaguar along with reduced emissions and greatly improved fuel consumption. The diesel unit also works together with a new larger Exhaust Gas Recirculation valves and a revised cooling assembly which combine to reduce emissions figures by 6 g/km over the 2013 XF model. In the end, the CO2 emission level reaches 129 g/km and the fuel consumption reaches 57.7 mpg. We can say that the XF represents all the benefits of driving a Jaguar along with greater fuel economy and reduced emissions.

The Stop-Start system enables the engine to quickly restart even during its rundown phase to allow the driver to exploit a gap in traffic at a junction. This system can be turned off manually, but it will automatically be turned on again for the next journey of the vehicle with every ignition cycle. The 2014 model has a secondary battery fitted specifically for engine re-starting. The model is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 9.8 seconds and to reach a top speed of 130 mph.
