2009 Jaguar XF Spy Shots and information

Jaguar is preparing a replacement for the S-Type, which will be named the XF and is scheduled for launch this fall.

Code-named X250, the new XF is aimed in particular at buyers of the very successful BMW 5-Series. To that end, Jaguar has developed a more modern and futuristic car and has abandoned the old-fashioned styling of the S-Type. Jaguar introduced such a concept car at the Detroit auto show, wearing the C-XF name.

These photos show a prototype of the production XF caught in Great Britain during testing. The car is still disguised at its front and rear ends but our computer image suggests how it is expected to look upon its release.

The XF gets power from a range of six- and eight-cylinder engines, including the new 3.2-liter in-line six found in the Volvo S80. The 4.2-liter V-8 in the S-Type is expected to be bored out to 5.0 liters.
