The 2013 Jaguar XF and XJ updates

2013 Jaguar XF

The 2013 versions of the Jaguar XF and jaguar XJ are slated for a series of updates, including new engines, a new transmission as well as enhanced interior technology when they’ll be released in Australia this October.

The major changes come from the introduction of the new supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine, which will show up in the luxury HJ limousine as well as the XF – this is the same engine which will show up in the F-Type sports car in the second half of 2013.

The new engine is capable of generating 250kW of power and 450Nm of torque, and both models will be capable of reaching 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds as well as an identical combined cycle fuel consumption rating of 9.4 litres per 100km.

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine is the same one found in the Range Rover Evoque and rather similar to the ‘EcoBoost’ developed by Ford. The Jaguar engine however will produce 177kW of power and 340Nm of torque.

It’s interesting to note that this engine version will be available in the XF in other territories.

The transmission upgrade will be up to an eight-speed automatic transmission which only used to be available in the diesel variants of the XF. The company says that the new transmission will lead to better fuel economy as well as reduced emissions and a much smoother acceleration.

All the new models, with the exception of the four-cylinder petrol engine, will feature start-stop technology in order to enhance fuel efficiency even further.

Some other enhancements will come as a recalibrated spring and damper tunes as well as remapped damper software meant to improve passenger comfort.

Two new audio systems will be part of this update, one will be a 380-watt system and the other will be 825-watt, so music lovers will surely love this update for sure.
