New York 2011: Jaguar makes the XF we always wanted and tweaks the XK for 2012

The Jaguar XF only arrived in 2008, but in just three years, it has reset the course for a brand that was hobbled by the transgression of the X-Type and a beloved but aging XJ. In 2010, it received a new set of engines that delivered performance on par with the promise of the concept car, and now, for 2012, we have a car that delivers on the looks of that showstopper. Jaguar has revealed a refreshed XF at the New York Auto Show, and the renew isn't ostentatious, but it is thorough, and rewarding.

    Review: 2013 Jaguar XF 3.0 AWD
    1371830220

    The supercharged cat lands on its AWD feet If you've always loved the sleek styling of the Jaguar XF, but preferred the practicality of all -wheel-drive performance and handling, you probably ended up buying one of its European rivals that offer xDrive or 4Matic instead. But with the arrival of the 2013 Jaguar XF now featuring a new 3.0 supercharged ...

    Rumours of an entry-level, BMW 3 Series-fighting Jaguar sedan have been floating around for quite some time, but thanks to our intrepid spy photographers, we now have visible proof that such a model is, in fact, in the works. Despite this tester's sneaky XF fittings, it's clear that what lies beneath is an entirely different beast. The doors have been ...

    Los Angeles: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S is the power and the fury
    1354208280

    If there's something wrong about a sedan with a 550-horsepower supercharged V8, we don't want to hear about it. Instead, we want to marvel at the car in person, which is fortuitous because Jaguar has officially unveiled the 2014 XFR-S at the 2012 LA Auto Show. That blown 5.0-litre V8 dishes up a full 502 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to ...

    Official: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S super sedan is 550-HP worth of cool
    1354131000

    The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S was considered last year, teased last week and now has been totally let loose. The most powerful sedan the company has ever made and the newest addition to its line of R-S performance cars – following the XKR-S – and we'll be getting even fewer of them than we thought. 200 had been the rumoured allotment for North ...

    Official: Jaguar designs seductive speedboat concept
    1351627200

    As if Jaguar needed to wow us further with beautiful design, Ian Callum has gone and commissioned a 20-foot watercraft as slick as the company's new F-Type sports car and far more unattainable. The Brits say they created The Concept Speedboat to complement and accompany the newly introduced XF Sportbrake, and it appears that they've done a fine job of ...

    Official: 2013 Jaguar XF and XJ get new powertrains, all-wheel drive
    1345151700

    A little more than a year ago Jaguar promised it would soon be closing a massive hole in its product line-up – the lack of all-wheel-drive vehicles. With the 2013 XF and XJ, that job is done... sort of. AWD can be had on the XJ and XF only when paired with the new 3.0L V6. The 385-horsepower 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8 is only available ...

    Report: Jaguar Land Rover hiring 1,100 new workers to build XF Sportbrake

    Here's an unexpected headline: "Jaguar Land Rover to Hire More Than 1,100 Workers at UK Plant." With the British auto industry all but left for dead when we were still in short pants and both Jaguar and Land Rover mired in irrelevance for most of the past two decades, the notion that these guys might someday make a successful go of it has always seemed ...

    1342627020

    An English Bulldog Learns New Tricks The booming woke us. We had spent the night on a slip road next to Stonehenge, and now somewhere, every few minutes, a cataclysm dropkicked the sky and beat Mother Earth badly enough to warrant pressing charges. This is a miserable wake-up call: Gray sky, foggy Earth, a mystical monolith, the ground beneath having a ...

    Video: Jaguar designers deconstruct XF model... with axes
    1339027200

    It's no secret that automotive designers build large clay models of their cars while working out a final design. But let us axe you something: What happens when a design is approved and the car is put into production? Deconstruction. And boy, it sure looks like fun. Jaguar gave its XF sedan an updated skin for the 2012 model year, and now that the car ...
