Performance Capabilities

No matter what you’re looking to achieve on the road, the 2017 Jaguar XF has you covered.

  • Jaguar XF: The base engine is a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine that makes 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, but the topmost S trims sees a performance boost up to 380 hp with this engine. Opt for the turbo-diesel 2.0L 4-cylinder machine to get 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque. With either powertrain, you’ll get an eight-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive, no matter the trim level you select.
  • Lexus GS: Meanwhile, the 2017 Lexus GS has a 3.5L V6 engine that musters only 311 hp despite its larger size, and an enhanced version that manages just 338 hp. There’s also a turbocharged 2.0L inline-4 available, but it only puts out 258 lb-ft of torque. In either case, the 2017 Jaguar XF comes out ahead of the competition.

Fuel Economy

The 2017 Jaguar XF not only dominates the 2017 Lexus GS when it comes to performance figures, but it also accomplishes superior fuel economy estimates. The turbo-diesel engine in the Jaguar returns an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city and 42 mpg highway, while the Lexus model’s turbocharged engine tops out at only 29 mpg city and 34 mpg highway, according to the EPA. When you want to go faster on less gas, the 2017 Jaguar XF has you covered.

Cargo Capacity
