All-new Jaguar XF revealed in dramatic 'high-wire' journey

Jaguar XF 2015

April 23, 2015: The all-new Jaguar XF was recently launched during a dramatic ‘high-wire’ water crossing in the heart of London’s business district. 

Expert British stunt man Jim Dowdall, veteran of Hollywood movies including Bond, Bourne and Indiana Jones, drove the all-new Jaguar XF 240 metres across a high-wire to demonstrate the new XF’s lightweight aluminium-intensive construction. The new XF is 80kgs lighter than its closest competitor, resulting in best-in-class efficiency (over 70mpg) and CO2 (104g/km).

The all-new XF’s dynamic, coupé-like design is formed around Jaguar’s aluminium-intensive architecture and combines the outstanding proportions, elegant surfaces and pure lines which define all Jaguar cars, with exceptionally low aerodynamic drag.

The cabin showcases a seamless blend of contemporary luxury materials and finishes, traditional Jaguar craftsmanship and state-of-the art technology with features such as the new InControl Touch Pro premium infotainment system and 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster.

The architecture also delivers dramatic improvements in packaging and proportions. Though 7mm shorter and 3mm lower, the all-new XF’s 2,960mm wheelbase is 51mm longer, enabling class-leading rear seat space with more legroom, kneeroom and headroom. 

The 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engines are available in 163PS/380Nm and 180PS/430Nm ratings and are offered with specially-optimised six-speed manual- and eight-speed automatic transmissions.
