For a big luxury car how many can you say has a serious punch and gets decent gas mileage at the same time? Even the Lexus LS Hybrid can’t do this. The new Jaguar XF Diesel European version gets 35 MPG (miles per gallon) while still able to tote around this big 4 door with 443 foot pounds of torque on tap. The new 2010 Jaguar XF Diesel can now run with the likings of the BMW’s twin-turbo diesel. The new dual turbo 3.0 liter with 240hp or 275 hp S trim model and up to 443 lb-ft of torque will be able to propel this new big cat from 0-60 in about 5.9 seconds and top out at around 155mph. If you are not paying attention that is a bit faster than the US versions of the 4.2-liter gasoline powered V8’s sold in America.
For all these years manufacturers have put so much emphases on performance and now it seems time to move that focus to economy but why not have your cake and eat it too.
