The United States is getting Jaguar’s new engines for the XF sedan ahead of Mzansi. These motors will place the puss in very good boots when it comes to the fight for customers normally aligned with the German premium trio of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. We especially like the new 3.0-litre supercharged V6…

Said V6 dispenses 250kW of power for the rear wheels, making it as powerful as the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 and Lexus GS 450h. All that of course goes to the rear wheels using an 8-speed automatic transmission. At the lower end of the scale is an entry-level 2.0-litre turbo petrol shared with the Range Rover Evoque, making 177kW. This particular XF will compete against the 180kW BMW 528i and the 170kW Mercedes-Benz E300. There is no Audi A6 equivalent in Mzansi.
