Jaguar has announced pricing for the new XF that will go on sale in June in Australia. Starting from $105,500 RRP, the new XF is a dramatic expression of the bold new Jaguar design language, with a driving experience that even exceeds the expectations created by the striking appearance: relaxed and confident with outstanding ability and control.
The XF's choice of 4 outstanding engines means the perfect powertrain for every driver preference. It offers everything from one of the most refined diesels in it's class, the 2.7 turbodiesel, through a choice of 3.0 litre V6 or 4.2 litre V8 petrol, to a 4.2 litre supercharged V8 petrol with 306kW. All XF's feature a sophisticated six speed automatic transmission that includes a unique, all new JaguarDrive selector - an industry first rotary shift interface - and the Jaguar Sequential Shift System with steering mounted paddles for one-touch manual control. Whatever the choice, they all offer refinement, flexibility and outstanding performance.
Prices for the XF model range are as follows:
|2.7 litre V6 Diesel||Luxury||$105,500|
|3.0 litre V6 Petrol||Luxury||$105,500|
|4.2 litre V8 Petrol||Premium Luxury||$130,500|
|4.2 litre Supercharged V8||SV8||$166,700|
Even before launch, the XF has been warmly received by motoring journalists around the globe, winning the prestigious What Car 2008 "Car of the Year" Award, in addition to the "Car of the Year" from the Sun newspaper and the "Interior of the Year" from Car magazine.
In Australia, Jaguar dealers have taken close to 200 pre-sales orders, which is considerably above expectations this far ahead of launch. "The interest in XF – before anybody in this country has even driven the car - has been very satisfying. If things continue in this way, we may have sold out our entire 2008 allocation before a single vehicle is on the road here. What is also encouraging is that the XF is attracting a new group of customers to the Jaguar brand: more than three-quarters of those who are contacting us about XF have never owned a Jaguar before." commented Dorian Lapthorne, General Manager, Jaguar Australia.
The new XF is a milestone for Jaguar. In every respect it signals the future of the marque – and yet it remains true to the essence of what has always made great Jaguars the car they are.
