2012 Jaguar XF 2.2 Diesel

Jaguar came at this year’s New York Auto Show with the facelift version of their XF luxury sedan. But the most impressive thing for the 2012 model year is the addition of a new 2.2 Diesel version, which will even be available on the US market.

The new 2.2-liter diesel unit will deliver a total of 190 HP and 332 lbs ft of torque, while returning 52.3 mpg on the combined cycle and only 149 g/km of CO2. It will feature a water-cooled turbocharger with low-friction pistons, new injectors, and a new crankshaft. The new configuration allowed Jaguar engineers to add a new oil pan and new electronic systems which affect the crankshaft to allow the new intelligent Stop-Start system to operate more efficiently. The new engine will be mated to an advanced eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox, with the seventh and eight ratios effectively acting as overdrive gears.

With this type of setup, the diesel XF will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 8.5 seconds and will hit a maximum speed of 140 mph.

UPDATE 11/22/2011: Jaguar has released a short film that shows the progress of the XF 2.2 as it crossed 11 states, 2,884-miles, and three time zones, achieving an average economy figure of 62.9 mpg! We have also added a new set of images for the XF 2.2 Diesel. Enjoy!


It just too bad that everyone thinks that Americans doesn’t want a diesel-powered car. Well, before a lot of dealer doesn’t want that engine option due to smoke issue but since it has a solution, some of the people prefer to buy one of this car.


What kind of upgrade has done here? I haven’t seen any special features added to this new XF but the same design on all previous models.

Well, then what’s the max. speed of that car when it’s in stock?

Well, all I can say is that we didn’t need too much power for a daily used car and 100 hp is just enough. However, having a Jaguar car is a great thing itself!

I’m not really familiar with diesel car..so I can’t identify which figure performance is better though I have to admit that I’m quite impress with the looks and retro style of this car.

that is a good and nice jaguar

RPM is "revolutions per minute" that is how many times an engine spins in one minute

There usually is some loss of power, though just a little sometimes. But its hard to tell till someone can drop one on a dyno.

I wonder if the drive train losses will the horsepower remain the same at the wheels?Confuse here..

@dimavsen, I have a hard time to figure out on how that equations works. I don’t know what does ’rpm’ stands for?

Torque is power. Horsepower is power with speed. (torque * rpm) / (5252)=Horsepower.

And they are more fuel efficiant, and very reliable, so I dont know where you got your information.......

But oh YES, diesels are actually MORE powerfull, a 5.5L Twin Turbo V8 might have 500hp and 475lbft (my guestimate) but a 5.5L Twin Turbo Diesel engine would have a little less power (about 450-ish hp) BUT have more torque @ 650lbft! So actually, torque is thrust, which is what turns the wheels, so they are more powerfull. smiley

Oh no! I will never consider to buy diesel car. Its less powerful and most probably less reliable!

Well, I want to praised the retro-style on its body. However, It has a less powerful engine that makes me wonder, the use of putting an advanced eight-speed in the car.

Oh no! It seems that this car is kind of "slow". Its 0-60 mph is around 1 minute. Hey, can’t they upgrade the speed performance of the car.

Well, a hybrid XF would actually be a good idea. And it is also highly likely, considering that Jaguar is also slowly inching its way into the hybrid trend.

Let me guess what they will be doing next, they will be releasing a hybrid version of the XF. That one is not really going to be a surprise since it would seem to be a turned nowadays.
