The all-new XF gets many of the same design cues as the smaller XE, with a similar tail, but overall the look of the new XF is pretty conservative. The big news is that the XF’s body is now 75 percent aluminum, which helps the rear-wheel-drive XF come in 132 pounds lighter and the all-wheel-drive version is up to 265 pounds lighter. The 2016 XF’s dimensions also don’t change much with the wheelbase being pulled two inches, but the overall length is 0.3-inches shorter.

The interior continues the conservative theme, but does get Jaguar’s InControl Touch infotainment system and a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster.

When the XF goes on sale buyers can choose from two 3.0L supercharged V6 engines with either 340 horsepower or 380 horsepower. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
