The all-new 2016 Jaguar XF has been revealed through a dramatic ‘high-wire’ water crossing in the heart of the London business district.
Expert British stunt man Jim Dowdell, veteran of Hollywood drove the all-new Jaguar XF 787ft (240 meters) across a high-wire to highlight the lightweight aluminum-intensive architecture featured on the vehicle. The feat took place high over the Royal Dock in London’s Canary Wharf.
The all-new XF retains these core attributes but uses the new Jaguar advanced aluminum-intensive architecture to elevate them to a completely new level. Featuring 75 percent aluminum, the architecture enables weight savings of 132lbs on RWD models and 265lbs on AWD models and an increase in torsional stiffness.
Two 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engines will be offered in the first model year featuring 340hp/332lb. ft. and 380hp/332lb. ft. ratings. Both engines are matched exclusively to eight-speed automatic transmissions.
