With all the news lately surrounding the Jaguar XE and Jaguar F-TYPE, we didn’t want another key release to slip by unnoticed. The 2018 Jaguar XF is now in stock — albeit in limited quantities — at Jaguar Peabody, giving our customers from Boston, MA to Nashua, NH yet another great new Jaguar model.
What’s new for the Jaguar XF this year? Quite a bit, it turns out. For starters, there’s a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine available to the base trim. There’s also a hands-free power trunk, a new 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster, and some newly available safety technology. The latter includes front and rear parking sensors and a new Driver Assistance Pack that piles on driver assistance technology.
Our favorite new development has been in the works for quite a while now. In fact, we reported on it in this space around this time last year. It’s the 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake. It takes advantage of the 3.0 L 380 horsepower supercharged V6 found in the Jaguar XF Sedan for a 5.3 second zero-to-sixty time. All-wheel drive is standard, and the cargo space (31.7-69.7 cubic feet, depending on seating configuration) pushes well into SUV territory.
That leaves Andover, MA luxury car shoppers with an enviable dilemma. On top of four engine choices, a wide color palette, multiple trim levels, and a plethora of great technology, you’ll now have two body choices in one great new Jaguar car.
There are a few new arrivals on which we’re still waiting, including the new Jaguar XJ and the all-new Jaguar E-PACE. If past is prologue — or present, for that matter — each will be well worth the wait. Whether you’re looking for information on an upcoming Jaguar model or you’d like to schedule a test drive of a new Jaguar vehicle, we invite you to 247 Newbury St., home of Jaguar Peabody and the new Jaguar XF.
