In 2012 not only will see the arrival of one of the most promising models in recent years, the F-Type, but we can also see how the arrival of the new XF family SportBrake carries an update on the full range of Jaguar sedans is ie, XF and XJ models. The most significant developments, which concern the mechanical efficiency of available, standard with automatic transmission ZF eight-speed and Stop / Start system. Finally also receive a new sound system Meridiam, available in 380 W and 825 W, and some chassis adjustments to improve comfort.

The supply of diesel engines has improved with the upgrade of four in a row and six in vee present, the only options will be available for the new Jaguar XF SportBrake. In the case of petrol engines replacing the old 5.0 V8 atmospheric for a further 3.0 supercharged V6, as well as the introduction of an inline four turbo, offers a reasonable gasoline engines and more efficient air irrespective of any option.

A complete range diesel and saving for XF, XF and XJ SportBrake
The range of Jaguar XF gets a new mechanics of access. Specifically, an improved version of 4 online of 2,174 cm3 develops 200 hp while consuming just 5.1 litres/100 kilometers. The diesel range is completed with the traditional 3.0-liter V6 in two power levels of 240 and 275 hp. Most important for this engine is the fact that improved reaching emissions-approval 159 g / km of CO2 in XF and XJ SWB, which in the registration tax taxed only 4.75% and 9.75% as before.

So far the only Jaguar XF will SportBrake this trio of diesel engines. Jaguar XJ range on the other hand only have a diesel, the 3.0-liter V6 and 275 hp.

A range of turbocharged petrol engines more competitive
The main innovations are in the renewal of gasoline engines. Opens a new 2.0 engine inline four and a maximum power of 240 hp at 5,500 rpm and 340 Nm of torque between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm. Turbocharger by the Jaguar XF can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.5 seconds and caress the 241 km / h. All indications are that Jaguar, having dispensed with the 160 hp diesel engine sold in the United Kingdom, seeks to complement the range XF with a gasoline engine “modest” entry.

Introducing a new turbocharged petrol engine and six-cylinder vee, the 3.0 V6 that offers 340 hp at 6,500 rpm and is destined to replace the old 5.0 naturally aspirated V8. The direct injection and twin independent variable and a Roots volumetric compressor and a balanced weight system to emulate the refinement of a V8, allow consumption of 9.4 litres/100 approved as kilometers. While it is true that his power is less than the old V8, its consumption has been reduced about 2 liters per 100 kilometers on this. This new engine will be available in the Jaguar XF and XJ saloon and probably will in the new F-Type.

To complete the work 5.0 V8 engine, now available only on the supercharged version, manages to improve emissions and fuel consumption thanks to the new transmission system and the automatic stop and start. In separate Jaguar XJ Jaguar XF is available with outputs of 470 and 510 hp. Consumption in the case of the XF has fallen to 11.3 litres/100 km approved, or what is the same, 1.2 liters per 100 kilometers less than before.
