Jaguar revealed today the new XF Diesel S powered by the 3.0-litrer AJ-V6D Gen III diesel that delivers 240 hp or 275 hp for the S trim. This engine is currently not available in the U.S., nor have there been any announced plans for Jaguar to bring its diesel line to the U.S.
The new 3.0-liter engines meet the forthcoming EU5 regulations, due to come into force at the start of 2011. And these great performance leaps are achieved with combined average fuel consumption in both models of 42.0mpg – an improvement on the 2.7-litre engine of 12 percent.
The Diesel S accelerates from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds, 1.8 seconds quicker than the excellent 2.7-litre model. In-gear acceleration is equally impressive, with a 50-70mph time of just 3.2 seconds. Maximum speed is electronically limited to 155mph.
