XF & XFR 2010 MY
The XF has already received a number of accolades from major automotive publications worldwide, so the new XFR, a new high performance engine and a host of changes for the 2010 Model Year, including the launch of the new luxurious 'Portfolio' model, will make the XF an even more attractive proposition.
Featuring all-new AJ-V8 Gen III direct-injection engines, the XF now delivers more power and more performance with comparable fuel economy and emissions than the engines they supersede.
The XFR is powered by the all-new supercharged 510 hp V8 with acceleration from 0-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds making it the ultimate Jaguar sports sedan. A naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, producing 385 hp, powers the XF Premium models and the XF retains the 4.2-liter V8 from the previous year.
Distinguished by unique exterior and interior design features, the XFR includes revised bumpers and lower front air intakes, sill extensions, hood louvers and grilles, four tailpipes, a trunk-lid spoiler, unique seats and 20-inch alloy wheels.
The 2010 XF will be priced starting at $52,000 MSRP. The XF Premium, with the new 5.0-liter naturally aspirated engine, will have a base MSRP of $57,000. The new XFR with the 510 hp supercharged engine will retail for $80,000 MSRP. Also, taking the details that define luxury to higher standards, the 2010 XF Premium offers a Portfolio Pack for an additional $4,000.

With interior enhancements and advanced lightweight aluminum body structure, the new XK and XKR build on 60 years of legendary performance to deliver the best of everything Jaguar.
The all-new AJ-V8 Gen III direct-injection engines are the most advanced and efficient direct-injection engines Jaguar has ever produced.
