Jaguar’s 2021 lineup updates aren’t stopping with the revised F-Pace SUV. Today the luxury brand revealed updates to the 2021 XF luxury sedan, including a new interior and some changes to the car’s options and engines.
Much like the F-Pace updates, updates to the XF’s exterior are almost difficult to spot. Jaguar has slotted in a new grille design that’s slightly larger than the outgoing version. The revised grille is flanked by headlights that feature new, more modern bezel designs, including a new LED lighting signature. Similarly, there’s updated lamps around back and mild revisions to the side vent design.
The bigger updates here have been reserved for the XF interior. Jaguar has not fundamentally changed the design theme here, but they have slotted in a cleaner dash design with slimmer vents and shifted the focal point to be an 11.4-inch glass touchscreen display that features their new Pivi infotainment system. The same system will be displayed on a new gauge cluster display.
If the formula sounds familiar here, that’s because it’s nearly the same sequence of changes Jaguar made with the F-Type. Clean up the interior design, slot in the fancy new magnesium-trimmed touchscreen.
With the XF, Jaguar has also added keyless entry, wireless phone charging, active noise cancellation, surround-view camera and 12-speaker Meridian sound system to the standard equipment list. It’s not all good news on the feature front though, as the XF’s supercharged V-6 has been pulled from the option list for 2021.
Instead the 2021 XF is going to have to make do with two versions of Jaguar Land Rover’s turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four. The base variant will generate 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, while a higher-output version will offer up 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The ladder version is exclusive to XF’s equipped with all-wheel-drive.
There’s no official word on pricing just yet, but expect the revised XF to hit dealerships in the coming months. Jaguar has already updated its consumer website to reflect the 2021 model.
