Now that Jaguar bestowed the XE upon the world, the automaker’s engineers and designers are turning toward updating the XF as the first generation draws closer to the end.

Autoblog reports the second-gen XF will likely be based upon the same iQ A1 platform used for the XE, along with losing a few pounds and gaining some new tech.

Under the bonnet, firepower will mostly remain the same, from four-pot diesels to supercharged V8, as well as the introduction of a PHEV variant. Rear- and all-wheel drive should still be around, as well as the choice between sedan and wagon.

Whatever happens, the new XF has some stiff competition waiting outside the assembly line, including the Audi A6, Infiniti Q70 and Volvo S90. Until that day, however, a few spy photos shall suffice.

    Looks like Jaguar are fairly close to finishing the new XF. Maybe just 5-6 months always from unveiling it? Kind of makes sense to me. The new XE could steal too many sales of the old XF. So getting the new model out quickly makes sense

    It seems like JLR are constantly wheeling out new models. The new large Discovery replacement is probably quite close and Jags own new SUV is probably around the corner too. The development teams must be working round the clock!

      Are they? The XK is ancient (06). The XF is ancient (08). The XJ has been with us since 09.

      Range Rover ran from 03-12 on a single style. Range Rover sport 04-12. Discovery 3/4 is from 2004.

    The internets had the answer I was looking for:

    “The XE chassis is the first built on Jaguar Land Rover’s iQ[Al] modular platform, which will be used for the second generation XF model, a sports utility vehicle, previewed as the Jaguar C-X17, and a new Range Rover to be positioned between the Evoque and the Sport.[17] The design features double wishbone suspension at the front, with similarities to the system fitted to the XF and F-Type models, the rear features an entirely new subframe mounted multi-link suspension system, named by Jaguar as Integral Link. This system is a more costly combination to manufacture but allows for greater tuning to provide a good balance between handling and ride quality.[11]”

    Bout time they ditched the original XF. It doesn’t look current anymore, and I was never bowled over with the original styling. It looked good, but seemed to be a really big car they had to chop to not steal from XJ sales. The kids born when this thing came out are in second grade now.

    Well, at least Jaguar are doing something. De Nysschen has to fit out his Manhattan penthouse before Cadillac can figure out what to do with the XTS and its cheap V6, while Jaguar is bringing out a whole new line of gas and diesel engines, and are replacing all old models by the 2018 model year.
