Jaguar has unveiled the 2016 XF sedan, ahead of its official debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show. Under the hood, customers will have the choice between two 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 engines, one rated at 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, the other at 380 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. The most compelling aspect of the car lies in its structure, with 75 percent of the body now made from aluminum. The result is a substantial reduction in the curb weight of the car — 132 pounds on the rear-drive XF, and a whopping 265 pounds on the all-wheel-drive variant. The weight savings are there even as the interior space is increased, thanks to the addition of two more inches in the wheelbase. Still, the overall length of the 2016 Jaguar XF is 0.3 inches shorter than its predecessor. Additionally, the new architecture leads to a stiffer chassis and superior handling. Another contributing factor is 50:50 weight distribution, featuring a double wishbone and integral-link suspension with standard traditional dampers and optional adaptive dampers. Look for the 2016 Jaguar XF to have its world premiere on April 1 at the New York Auto Show.
