2012 Jaguar XF: Restrained Urgency

November 08, 2012

You might have heard about our longterm 2012 Jaguar XF's supercharged V8. I'm here to reaffirm that it's no joke -- this engine punts the Jag around with laughable ease. Doesn't much matter how many revs are showing on the tach, you dip your toe, you better watch for flashing lights. And it's no lumpy, uncouth beast. The blown 5.0-liter does that whole Jekyll/Hyde thing quite well.

This power delivery is definitely the highlight of the car. Every time I drive the XF I end up with a stupid grin on my face because of it.
