816 Miles on 1 Tank: No Problem for the Jaguar XF Diesel

Diesel

How far exactly is 816 miles? Try the distance from Birmingham, England to Munich, Germany. Jaguar's 2012 XF is their most fuel efficient model yet, equipped with Jaguar's 2.2-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine. A team of independent testers completed the impressive hike on one tank of fuel, traversing a mix of highways, winding country roads, and dense urban traffic.

The 4-door sedan, with the 190hp XF 2.2-liter was built for efficiency by linking to ZF's latest eight-speed automatic transmission and an engine stop-start system (the first time this has been fitted to a Jaguar). Its performance is also impressive. It can sprint off the line from 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 140mph. The XF also pulls 332 lb-ft of torque and returns a fuel economy of 52.2mpg. As impressive as 816 miles on one tank is, it's still not enough to make it to the US. That's a fitting comparison because the Jaguar XF Diesel won't be available in the States.
