For the first time a prototype has been caught with the new production body.
Up until now we’ve seen spy shots of the next-generation Jaguar XF wearing the body of the current sedan. Somewhat boring, we’ll admit. Fortunately our spy photographers have just caught another XF prototype out during hot weather testing in southern Europe. Only this time it’s wearing the new production body. It can’t be mistaken for anything other than a Jaguar. And if you think it looks kind of like a stretched version of the recently revealed XE, then you’re not too far off.
The new XF is based on the same platform as the XE, only lengthened. Sources claim the new XF will also be available as a wagon, but it’s doubtful it’ll be available in the US. As far as engines go, expect to see nearly the same lineup carried over: a turbo charged four-cylinder, a supercharged V6 and, of course, that certain 5.0-liter supercharged V8. A diesel variant will also continue for Europe and there’s supposedly a plug-in hybrid version in the works. An official reveal is expected in 2016.
