24 City / 33 Highway

The Jaguar brand is coming off a banner year with sales more than doubling in 2016, thanks in no small part to its fresh-faced models, including the XF sports sedan. Redesigned for the 2016 model, the second-generation XF is a carryover model for 2018.

What's New for 2018

The XF receives minimal updates aside from the addition of a new engine, a limited-edition Portfolio trim, a gesture-activated tailgate, and more safety features such as forward traffic detection, forward vehicle guidance, and blind spot assist. Also, Jaguar revised the paint selection to better align with offerings from corporate sibling Land Rover.

Choosing Your Jaguar XF

A new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine joins the XF lineup as the entry-level powertrain. Producing 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, vehicles equipped with this inline-four will carry the 25t designation. A supercharged 3.0-liter V6 will continue to power 35t and S models while 20d models feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel. The V6 offers 340 (35t) or 380 (S) hp and 332 lb-ft of torque while the diesel has an output of 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque. All XF models are rear-wheel-drive and equipped with an eight-speed automatic. All-wheel-drive is available for all trim levels.

Fuel economy remains unchanged, with V6 models returning an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon city, 29 highway, and 23 combined while AWD configurations drop one mpg during highway driving. As expected, diesel models offer better mileage, with an EPA rating of 31 city, 42 highway, and 35 combined for RWD vehicles and 30 city, 40 highway, and 34 combined for AWD. There are no EPA figures yet available for the new 2.0-liter gasoline engine, but its fuel economy should land between the diesel and V6.

Forward traffic detection and forward vehicle guidance are new features added to the optional Surround Camera System. The former improves frontwards visibility while driving; the latter assists during low-speed maneuvers such as parking.

The new blind spot assist feature works in conjunction with blind spot monitoring and collision warning systems when changing lanes. Should an object be detected, the assist feature will alert the driver by nudging the steering in order to keep the vehicle within its original lane.

Even with few changes, pricing has increased for 2018 models. The XF 25t will serve as the new entry point with a starting price of $48,770 for RWD and $51,770 for AWD. Previously considered the base model, the 20d now starts $50,270, which is up from last year’s $48,445. V6-equipped vehicles will start at $54,960. All prices include the $995 destination fee.

Trims for the 2018 XF are:

Base

Standard equipment includes 19-inch wheels, automatic Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, partial LED taillights, push-button start, leatherette upholstery, a fixed rear seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 380-watt Meridian sound system, an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and Bluetooth/USB connectivity.

A Cold Climate Package ($1,020) adds heat to the front and rear seats, steering wheel, front windshield, and front washer jets. Other options include navigation with Jaguar’s InControl Apps smartphone integration ($510), a rearview camera ($410) as well as no-cost add-ons such as lane departure warning, emergency braking, and wheel locks.

Premium

Starting at $50,760, Premium models add auto-dimming and folding door mirrors, driver seat memory, a rearview camera, a power-adjustable steering column, and 40/20/40-split rear seats. Also available for Premium vehicles are Vision Assist ($3,240) and Technology ($3,725) packages.

The Vision Assist Package adds adaptive Xenon headlights with automatic high beams, front and rear parking aids, emergency braking, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring with vehicle sensing and reverse traffic monitoring. The Technology Package adds a 10.2-inch touchscreen with navigation, a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, and an 825-watt Meridian digital sound system.

Other options include Wi-Fi hotspot capability ($310) and a smart key system ($615).

Prestige

The Prestige trim starts at $55,220 and includes leather interior trim, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, navigation, a smart key system, JLR's InControl Apps, and front and rear parking aids. The Comfort & Convenience Package ($2,235) offers heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, and a gesture tailgate. Both 19- and 20-inch wheels are available.

For packages, the Vision Assist Package's price drops to $2,580 since front and rear parking aids are standard on Prestige models. The Technology Pacakge also sees a decreased price ($3,265). A head-up display ($1,010) and Adaptive Dynamics ($1,020), which modifies vehicle response to suit a particular driving style, are available, too.

R-Sport

R-Sport models ($58,125) build on the Prestige trim but showcase a distinctive demeanor thanks to a sporty body kit, satin chrome highlights, and R-Sport badging. Adaptive xenon headlights with automatic high beams are standard along with blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, reverse traffic detection, perforated leather seats with contrast stitching, dual-zone climate control, and a three-month satellite radio subscription. New packages include Driver Assistance ($3,495) and Luxury Interior ($2,860).

The Driver Assistance Package offers a suite of safety technologies, including a 360-degree camera, traffic sign recognition, park distance control, park assist, adaptive cruise control, and blind spot assist. Luxury Interior adds four-zone climate control, an air quality sensor, configurable interior lighting, premium-carpet mats, and sunshades for the rear windshield (power) and windows (manual).

Note: The XF's S models share overlapping standard features with the R-Sport trim but add 20-inch wheels, Adaptive Dynamics, and an S-trim body kit and badging throughout (not to mention the 380-hp engine tune). The Black Package ($360) adds gloss black accents. S models start at $64,860.

Portfolio

Limited volume and only for 35t models, the Portfolio starts at $69,020 and offers the standard equipment of the R-Sport minus the body kit. Features of the Comfort & Convenience, Luxury Interior, and Technology packages also are standard, along with premium brakes, a head-up display, Wi-Fi, Windsor leather seats, and 20-way power adjustable front seats with memory. The Driver Assistance and Adaptive Dynamics Packages remain as options.

CarsDirect Tip

By buttressing the model lineup at its extremes with a new base engine and high-end trim, XF buyers are not without options. Those looking for premium features without the premium price will be more than content in a 25t Premium model with Cold Climate, Vision Assist, and Technology packages. Adding the smart key system still keeps MRSP under $60,000.
