Jaguar Ups the Ante with XFR, XKR

January 11, 2009

The 2009 Jaguar XF is one of the top-rated luxury cars here at TheCarConnection.com -- and for 2010, the mid-size luxosedan is being updated with a massively powerful V-8 engine.

The 2010 Jaguar XF gets a variety of upgrades for the new model year, but the best news of the lot is its new 510-hp supercharged V-8 engine, found in the high-performance XFR. The new powerplant pushes the sedan to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. Other 2010 XFs get a new 5.0-liter V-8 with 385 hp, with the base car sticking with the original 4.2-liter V-8.

The XFR version wears a deeper chin spoiler, side sills, hood louvers and quad tailpipes, along with 20-inch wheels.

The companion two-door XK Coupe also gets upgrades with the same new engines. Two models are offered - Portfolio, with the 385-hp V-8, and XKR with the 510-hp V-8. The latter catapults the big sportscar to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds; the Portfolio version takes 5.2 seconds, Jaguar says. Cosmetic changes to the XK include new LED taillights, a new rear spoiler, and the addition of the JaguarDrive Selector to the cockpit.
