DRIVING DYNAMICS

The driving dynamics of Jaguar cars are legendary. The 2016 Jaguar XF delivers both excellent ride comfort and outstanding sports handling.

JAGUAR LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM ARCHITECTURE

The foundation of the all-new Jaguar XF is the Lightweight Aluminum Architecture developed by Jaguar Cars that provides impeccable ride, handling, and dynamics. This new architecture facilitates a near perfect balance, supporting an agile and precise drive. Lightweight and durable, the aluminum alloy itself is comprised of a high level of recycled aluminum, which uses 95 percent less energy than primary aluminum to produce, minimizing the vehicle’s environmental impact.

INTELLIGENT PERFORMANCE

With its stiff, lightweight body structure and a new generation of high-performance powertrains and transmissions, the all-new XF delivers a breadth of exhilarating driving experiences.

CHASSIS AND SUSPENSION

Strong and light aluminium components make up both the front and rear suspension systems, helping XF to respond with agility and perform with dynamism while maintaining ride comfort. At the front, a double wishbone suspension structure, similar to F-TYPE’s, ensures class-leading handling. An integral link suspension system at the rear provides stiffness to support handling while offering great ride quality. The control, agility and feedback offered by this suspension architecture ensures that XF comes to life.

RIDE AND HANDLING

The all-new XF takes the renowned ride and handling of Jaguar vehicles to an even higher level. It delivers true sporting character while offering outstanding levels of refinement. This is thanks, in part, to its Lightweight Aluminum Architecture, which delivers superb torsional stiffness and is the ideal platform for the advanced front wishbone and rear integral link suspension systems.

ELECTRIC POWER ASSISTED STEERING

Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) has been engineered by Jaguar Cars to offer outstanding feedback and control. By monitoring vehicle speed and driver inputs, EPAS finely calibrates the amount of power assistance for every bend, every maneuver.4

ADAPTIVE DYNAMICS

Whether you’re accelerating on the highway, cornering on country roads or navigating uneven surfaces around town, available Adaptive Dynamics instinctively modifies the vehicle’s response to conditions and your driving style.4 It is designed to analyze acceleration, cornering, throttle and brake pedal activity as well as kick down activation. Steering and body movement are also analyzed up to 500 times a second. Using this information, electronically controlled dampers constantly adjust to optimize the suspension settings.

CONFIGURABLE DYNAMICS AND DYNAMIC MODE

Bringing technology from the F-TYPE, the optional Configurable Dynamics system offered in conjunction with Adaptive Dynamics allows you to set up the vehicle dynamics for suspension, throttle mapping and steering feel to suit your performance driving needs.4 Your configuration can be saved as a personal setting, or programmed to the vehicle’s pre-optimized setup, and is activated when Dynamic Mode is selected.

The standard Dynamic Mode revises the car’s software to awaken its sporting character. It sharpens the throttle response, increases steering weighting and executes gear shifts more quickly and at higher engine speeds. Dynamic Mode enhances your connection with a pure Jaguar sports car performance.4

INSTINCTIVE ALL WHEEL DRIVE® WITH INTELLIGENT DRIVELINE DYNAMICS

The XF offers the Instinctive All Wheel Drive® system that delivers confident handling on most surfaces.4 The system uses a new Intelligent Driveline Dynamics control strategy software developed by Jaguar engineering that monitors driving conditions and vehicle body position, optimizing traction and handling balance. This assists the all-new XF in maintaining its perfect poise and maximizes control in demanding conditions.4

From the XF Premium to the exhilarating power of XF S, every XF models combine advanced technology and distinctive design, all underpinned by the Jaguar lightweight aluminum architecture. Create your perfect XF with our configurator or book a test drive today.
