The second-generation Jaguar XF has been around since 2016, and it’ll remain in 2021. However, the 2021 Jaguar XF will receive a generous facelift that’ll include a refreshed look inside and out, new technology, and more.
On the outside, the 2021 Jaguar XF will still be very recognizable, as it’ll retain virtually all its sheet metal. What will change, though, will be its soft parts. Upfront, the 2021 XF will get updated full-LED quad headlights with signature double-J-blade signature lighting, a new mesh-design grille with diamond detailing, new wheel designs, and more.
Inside, the 2021 Jaguar will gain a new 11.4-inch HD touchscreen with a sleek curvature that’ll follow the instrument panel’s profile. Powering this new touchscreen will be a new Pivi Pro infotainment system that’ll include a simpler menu structure, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and over-the-air updates. Other updates will include a new JaguarDrive selector with high-detail stitching, metallic rotary dial for the Jaguar Drive Control, and updated lighting with a new upper strip in the front.
Under its hood, the 2021 Jaguar XF will have two 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine options. The base engine will crank out 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, and the optional 2.0-liter will pump out 296 hp and feature standard all-wheel drive. Both engines will mate with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Sixty mph will arrive in 6.5 seconds with the base engine and 5.8 seconds with the optional engine.
Jaguar made no mention of advanced safety features on the 2021 XF, but we expect it to continue with optional automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alerts, lane-departure warnings, and active lane control.
