2012 Jaguar XF 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!

@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.

This one is really looking very good now. I must admit that I am not really a fan of the XF before, since I found it to be unattractive, but this video is starting to make me think otherwise.

Aw! Then I’m right!XF has undergone on facelift. There is no upgrade on the engine performance and the retro-styled sticker is still there. I think if we are going to strip down the sticker no more is good in the car. 

Well, it is a good thing that they are providing several versions of the XF. This will certainly give customers plenty to choose from.

Yes, they have finally decided to put up a diesel version of the XF. That one is actually a long time coming but is certainly worth the wait.
