The $57,000 Premium Luxury model adds the 5.0-liter V-8, blind-spot monitors, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and ventilated front seats, while the Portfolio edition offers the 5.0-liter V-8 with distinct leather and suede upholstery, along with ebony dash trim. The $80,000 XFR fits the supercharged V-8; 20-inch wheels; a heated steering wheel; adaptive cruise control; and a Bowers & Wilkins audio system with HD and Sirius Satellite Radio and integration for audio players.
Optional equipment includes a heated steering wheel and active cruise control, while the available 525-watt Bowers & Wilkins system is one of the best-sounding audio setups the editors have heard in any vehicle, cost no object. For 2011, even the base model gets standard Burl Walnut trim, while a heated windshield is optional on all models. The JaguarSense glovebox release—a trick feature liked by many—has been replaced with a standard button.
The XF's navigation system also incorporates iPod/iPhone control for music. A tap on the touch screen and you're controlling the flow of tunes through a target on the display; however some drivers will be disappointed to see that many of the climate controls have been moved to screen-only positions as well.
