How the 2017 Jaguar XF Compares to Previous Model Years

Put the 2016 and 2017 Jaguar XF models side by side, and you will most likely have a hard time telling these two models apart. Jaguar chose to make minimal changes for the 2017 model, as this is only the second year of the new generation. Even so, you will notice a few new features, most notably the 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine. The diesel is available with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and generates 180 horsepower and a whopping 318 pound-feet of torque. This new engine can take the XF up to 121 miles per hour and works with the 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.

To get a better feel for why Jaguar mostly kept the 2017 XF the same, you may want to glance at the list of updates that happened for the 2016 model year. As a redesigned model, the exterior was modernized with new lights in front and back plus a new grille, with the taillights coming from the F-TYPE. The wheelbase got longer, extending rear-seat legroom, and the interior saw numerous adjustments, including a new steering wheel, revised gauge cluster, larger center screen, and plenty of updated controls. The 2016 XF also added forward-collision warning featuring automatic braking, a 360-degree camera, automatic high beams, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors in the front and rear, and adaptive LED headlights, so no enhancements in this respect were needed for the 2017 model year. There were even newly available convenience features, like mobile Wi-Fi, self-parking, speed limit recognition, adaptive cruise control, and four-zone automatic climate control. With so many recent updates, it is no surprise Jaguar chose to keep the 2017 XF nearly identical to the 2016 model.

History of the Jaguar XF

The Jaguar XF originally debuted as part of the 2009 model year. It remained mostly the same throughout its life, with minor changes here and there until the major adjustments for the 2016 XF mentioned above. Even so, you will notice a few key adjustments throughout its history. When the XF arrived for 2009, it was designed to replace the S-Type fleet that was getting old. The XF Supercharged with its 5-liter supercharged V8 engine and the XF Premium were both added for the 2009 model year. That same year, other trims were also added along with more soundproofing to make the cabin quieter. The engine got bigger in 2011, along with larger brakes and the new Jaguar Drive Control Dynamic mode. The exterior was more refined for 2012, and the XF got a new touchscreen that year, as well.
