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!

I wonder if what kind of engine that they use on this? Anyway, I would admit that Jaguar still looks very lovely and attractive even though it doesn’t have lots of accessories on its exterior.

Yeah! I was also wondering on that leezyking! smiley Well, I am hoping that they would already update this news soon! Anyway, I’m quite confused with its 190 horsepower. I don’t think that it will be good enough for it.

I wonder if what will be the other awesome feature that this Jugaur can offer, especially on its interior. Anyway, 140 mph on it is quite already cool and remarkable for it.

I don’t think that it is only looking like their typical designed. Well, I just noticed that the elegant and fabulous look of this Jaguar is very different from their other vehicle. Anyway, I’m so impressive engine specification!

I’m so impressed with its neat looking and very decent appearance of this Jaguar. Well, even though it doesn’t really have lots of accessories it still looks very fabulous with its simple detailing.

Jaguar vehicle really has this simple detailing, but it still looks so elegant and classy with the body paint that they usually use on their cars. Anyway, I’m already quite satisfied with its engine.

Very fancy and cool on its body painted styled. Look so delightful with Twist and combined circle. Though it overly dress up getting hide the real essence of the car.

I wonder if this car is already out in the market? I was curious on what’s behind its camouflage? And are they bringing that car in US?

I didn’t get it so does it mean that the speed performance of this car is kind of faster? IMO, in terms of the 0-60 mph this car seems slower.

@blossom, According to Wikipedia, Top level races are 200 to 600 miles (320–1000 km) in length. Average speeds in the top classes are usually within 70–80% of comparable levels of open wheel racing at the same trackssmiley

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?

  (858) posted on 05.9.2011

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 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.

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..
