The Jaguar XF is an executive car by British car manufacturer Jaguar, which was unveiled in the autumn of 2007 as a replacement of the Jaguar S-Type produced. The Jaguar XF is Jaguar Whitley design and development HQ developed in Coventry and will be built at the assembly plant in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham. During its development the XF was known by its code name X250.
The XF was launched in 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show following the public presentation of the C-XF concept in January 2007 at the International Motor Show. Designed by Jaguar design, Ian Callum, Director, was a major design change from its predecessor. The style of the finished production XF varies from that of the C-XF, especially around the nose and headlights, which integrates an oval grille back to the original 1968 Jaguar XJ. The boot lid retained the S-Type plated blade to his advantage, but also a “leaper” Jaguar logo as well.
The interior contains some unique features, such as air vents, which are a snug fit on a map open in rotation when the engine is running, and a dial speed dial JaguarDrive called rising center console. Another difference from the traditional atmosphere Jaguar cockpit is the use of light blue backlighting for the instruments, switchgear, and around major control panels. Some smaller systems such as interior lighting, are controlled simply by touching the ceiling light. The glove compartment also opens to the touch. Exceptionally, the XF has no cloth interior option, with even the entry-level model that is completely finished leather – also areas that the plastic used in previous Jaguars. Real wood veneers are available but have added aluminum, carbon fiber and black piano lacquer trim to create a modern look at the cabin.
Jaguar XF Aerodynamic
The body was designed with computational fluid dynamics, before the car ever saw a wind tunnel. Each zone of the outer skin of the wheel of a lightweight composite material to the flow of cooling air (including the shape of the mirror) is optimized with this method. The more space tail is aerodynamically efficient than a less rounded and improve XF coupe roofline and raised bootlid lip airflow over the rear of the car.
The basic structure of the sub-XF was performed in the S-type, even though the body has been stretched to meet the safety requirements of a collision, and increased to provide additional space, while the “saloon” average proportions. The mounting brackets are the same as those used in the XK, while the motor direction is substantially similar to the used in the S-type.
Sound and vibration isolation is provided by the addition of a drawer under the body and in particular a motor bearing, an exhaust system and a double wall between the engine compartment and the passenger compartment.
Jaguar XF engine specifications
All XF models are automatic and are Euro 5 The naturally aspirated 3.0 V6 petrol engine was discontinued in Europe in 2010, but is still sold elsewhere. Next Green Car organization, the emissions from motor vehicles and prices for analyzes of 0 to 100 (dirty) – analyzes the actual emissions Jaguar XF range EcoTest ADAC classify three diesel engines.
Jaguar XF Transmissions
The XF was initiated only with an automatic transmission. Programmed to move the ZF six-speed automatic with lockup torque converter 10% faster than before and is equipped with all gasoline engines. Diesel engines are equipped with an advanced eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. In transmission rates can by turning a knob, which can from the center console or the initiation controlled manually using pallets behind the wheel increases are selected.
Jaguar XF sound system
The standard audio system includes a ten-speaker, 250 W, which includes the installation of a radio, CD player, MP3 and WMA compatibility, and USB storage devices. From 2008 to 2012 there was an option Bowers & Wilkins sound system. To the base 17 speaker cones are using B & W Kevlar composite. Each door includes a 168 mm (6.6 in) woofer, midrange and tweeter 100 mm-25 mm, while each rear door of the house similar to 168 mm (6.6 in) woofer and 25mm tweeter. Since there is a center speaker 100 mm full-range driver, similar to the 100 mm wide band “surround” speakers on the rear deck. B & W system has been heard by journalists from Autocar magazine, which had the best education system I announced investigated.
For Models 2013, presented the option of a new Jaguar meridian plane, instead of the B &W, with a choice of 11 speakers 380 W or 825 W surround 17-speaker system.
Jaguar XF multimedia interaction
A 7-inch color screen in the instrument panel and can be mounted in the XFS used to control most multimedia systems. The same screen can also be upgraded with a capacity of analogue and digital television. JaguarVoice is optional that allows the driver to speak commands everything from the audio and navigation system for calls and climate control system.
Jaguar XF Safety
The XF has been tested by Euro NCAP in 2010 and won a four-star. XF The result was a disappointment for some car magazines. By repeating the test in 2011 turned the XF improve outcomes for adult occupant, child occupant and pedestrian areas.
