The 2013 Jaguar XF comes with some game-changing upgrades, proving it has what it takes to compete with fellow mid-size luxury sedans vying for top spot among consumers this year. Two new engine options, improved fuel economy, and Jaguar's signature blend of power, luxury, and pure adrenaline are granting the XF plenty of attention, and rightly so.
Previously only available with a V8 drivetrain, this year's XF went bold, offering both 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engine options. The base level i4 T turbo-charged engine puts out a very respectable 240hp, and its upgraded brother the Supercharged V6 harnesses 340 horses under the hood. Both the V4 and V6 supply plenty of kick and make for a very enjoyable ride. Plus, smaller engines mean lower starting prices - another selling point for consumers hoping to acquire some sports-car luxury without completely breaking the bank.
The base Jaguar XF has a new four-cylinder 240-horsepower engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The model comes standard with 18-inch wheels, automatic bi-xenon headlights, rear parking sensors, a sunroof and a tilting and telescoping steering wheel.
Interior features include leather upholstery, genuine wood trim, 6-way heated power front seats with driver memory, and dual-zone climate control. Available infotainment includes Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a CD player with USB and iPod connections, a 7-inch touchscreen display, and a 10-speaker sound system. Traction and stability control, and antilock brakes, are also standard on all models.
Upgrade packages include the Sport Portfolio Package with 19-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels; the Convenience Package with blind-spot monitoring, voice controls, keyless entry and ignition, and rear sunshade; and the Premium Package 1 or 2, with amenities such as front parking sensors, a rearview camera, a 12-speaker premium sound system, a navigation system and a satellite radio.
Jaguar’s signature V8 model returns for 2013 with plenty of style and luxury. The 5-liter engine puts out a roaring 470 horsepower, and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Standard features include: 20-inch wheels; a 12-speaker premium sound system; a navigation system; blind-spot monitoring; voice controls; keyless entry and ignition; and a rear sunshade.
A new supercharged 340-horsepower V6 debuts with the 2013 XF. The V6 SC has an 8-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is optional. All V6 and V8 models come with Jaguar’s special auto start/stop at stop lights for better fuel economy. Standard features for the V6 include 18-inch wheels; automatic bi-xenon headlights with intelligent high-beam; a sunroof; a front and rear parking system; and a tilting and telescoping steering wheel.
Additional standard features include leather trim with twin needle contrast stitching on instrument panel and door top rolls; a heated steering wheel; iPod and USB ports with 30GB of music storage; and a front and rear parking system.
Optional packages include the Cold Weather Package with heated steering wheel and windshield; and the Premium Package with adaptive front headlights, a rearview camera, a 12-speaker premium sound system, and a satellite radio.

Option for manual transmission, very cushy interior. But cabin is smaller than the XF, and outside is less stylish than the competition.
Bold styling and plenty of features, but infotainment is sadly lacking, particularly in the navigation and display department.
Classy design and optional AWD, but only transmission is 7 speed automatic, and the ride is a bit stiff.
Lower starting price with same supercharged V6 option as XF, but steering can feel a little out-of-sync with driver.
