2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Hill? What Hill?

July 02, 2012

As I've mentioned in previous posts, my favorite market is up a steep hill. It gives me a chance to compare how our long-term cars handle the climb.

This weekend, the Jag and I set off to buy mussels and an organic chicken. Our Jaguar XF didn't even notice it was on a hill. It flew past all the other cars without hesitation or struggle of any kind. 470 horsepower, 424 lb-ft of torque and a supercharger. Yeah, that'll do it.

On a related note, the fuel economy on this car is pretty drastic: 12 mpg overall average so far. The EPA estimates 15 city, 21 highway and 17 combined. Not very optimistic and not likely to be earned by us any time soon.
