Jaguar Determinations Proved Provocative Claim
Jaguar fans in the New York area are certainly familiar with the new 2012 XF model. With four distinctive trims, you could be in the presence of anywhere from 385 to 510 horsepower and a sprint time as little as 4.7 seconds. What might be some fresh news for you is that Jaguar has developed a 2.2-liter, 4-cylinder diesel variant of the XF. And to christen it, the variant just began a cross-country road trip. This was not a journey for the car to get in touch with it inner self however. Rather Jaguar claimed the new diesel-powered cat is the most fuel-conservative Jaguar built to date; what better way to prove this claim then by making a cross-country trek.
On November 11 the car began in our state of New York. Three days, and 2,884 miles later, it crossed into its resting point, California, traveling an average of 52 mph, the entire way. The car's average fuel economy? Fifty-two-point-three (52.3) miles per gallon!
Now those numbers should surely make your inner green happy. Additionally, the speed demon side of you also gets some good news. The new Jaguar XF 2.2 Diesel promises a top speed of 140 miles per hour, 187 horsepower, 332 lb.-ft. of torque and 8-second 0-60 mph sprint time. We don't know about you, but Manhattan Jaguar NYC would venture to say that those numbers are more than respectable for a diesel.
Is Jaguar trying to tell us something by bringing the XF 2.2Diesel over to American soil? Possibly actually making it available stateside? It'd certainly be a cruel tease if they weren't. That said. Manhattan Jaguar NYC isn't yet at liberty to say, one way or the other. We do, however, promise an official conclusion soon; so, be sure to check back often.
