2020 Jaguar XF Overview

The midsize Jaguar XF gets a few updates for 2020, including a new Checkered Flag Edition and new standard features. Trims include Prestige, Premium, S, and the Checkered Flag Edition.

While the XF looks very similar to Jaguar’s compact XE sedan on the outside, it's considerably roomier on the inside.

The base powertrain in the XF is a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine, which makes 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. It comes standard with rear-wheel drive (RWD), but all-wheel drive (AWD) is optional. A higher-spec version of this engine, which makes 296 hp and 295 lb-ft, is also available. The upgraded powertrain is the 3.0-liter supercharged V6, which makes 380 horsepower. AWD comes standard with the V6. All XFs pair with an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters.

The 4-cylinder XF manages 25 mpg city, 34 highway, and 28 combined with RWD. The AWD option returns an estimated 23, 33, 27. The supercharged V6 gets an estimated 20, 29, 23. All XFs sip premium fuel.

The Checkered Flag Edition comes with special badging and gloss black alloy wheels. On the inside, it gets R-Sport seats and a special aluminum instrument panel finish.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now come standard, and all XFs come with a 10-inch touchscreen, keyless ignition, sunroof, and power front seats. The Prestige trim adds heated front seats, a navigation system, and parking sensors. Other available features include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, cooled seats, soft-close doors, and a head-up display (HUD). The trunk offers 19.1 cubic feet of space.

The XF hasn’t gone through the usual run of crash tests. Available active safety features include parking sensors, forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, and adaptive cruise control.

The Jaguar XF is a worthy alternative to the usual players, namely the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series.
