The all-new Jaguar XF will be officially unwrapped on 24 March, one week ahead of its debut at the New York Auto Show. The announcement came as Jaguar releases two official photos of the new XF midsize saloon, giving a glimpse of the car’s all-new interior and top view.
The launch program will see the new Jaguar XF performing a world first high-wire water crossing. The stunt will be carried out by expert British stuntman Jim Dowdall, veteran of dramatic action stunts in movies including Bond, Bourne and Indiana Jones.
The dramatic drive, across two 34mm-diameter wires suspended high above water, will highlight the lightweight and agile credentials of the new BMW 5 Series rival and will be streamed globally on jaguar.com/newxf on 24 March.
XF was first launched in 2007 and is Jaguar’s biggest selling model. The next generation XF is completely new from the ground up and will be the second Jaguar model (after the Jaguar XE) to use the brand’s aluminium-intensive architecture.
The all-new XF is said to set new business segment benchmarks for weight and efficiency, resulting in class leading fuel economy figures of just 4.0L/100km.
“I believe the all-new XF will be the best looking car in its class,” said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar. “Elegant, handsome and with proportions that imbue a great sense of integrity – the all-new XF will be true to the strong tradition of sporting Jaguar saloons while being completely of its time.”
The all-new 2015 Jaguar XF will make its global debut in New York on 1 April when the full range and technical details underlining its class-leading credentials will be released.
