WR TV: 2014 Jaguar XF V6 Supercharged AWD
This week we’re taking a look at Jaguar’s mid-sized all wheel drive sports sedan. The XF has stiff competition in the segment from the likes of the BMW 5-Series, the Audi A6, and Mercedes Benz E-Class, but this cat’s claws might just be sharp enough to steal some sales from the established leaders.
Sporting a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 generating 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque and an 8-speed automatic with paddling shifting, the XF is capable of a 0-60mph sprint in five and half seconds while maintaining a fuel economy numbers of nearly 30mpg on the highway.
