2010 Jaguar XF lineup gets 470-hp Supercharged model

2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged

When Jaguar introduced the XF sedan in the U.S. market it started by offering three different choices including a 300-hp base model, a 385 XF Premium model and now, the top-of-the-line 510-hp V8 XFR (recently upgraded). Well, that has left a sizable gap between the XF Premium and the XFR.

Jaguar has now announced that it is adding a fourth member to the XF lineup with the 2010 XF Supercharged. Power comes from an uprated version of the 5.0L supercharged AJ-V8 Gen III engine making 470-hp with a maximum torque of 424 lb-ft. 0 to 60 mph comes in just 4.9 seconds.

Pricing for the Jaguar XF lineup is as follows:

– 4.2L naturally aspirated XF (300 hp): $52,000 MSRP
– 5.0L naturally aspirated XF Premium (385 hp): $57,000 MSRP
– 5.0L supercharged XF Supercharged (470 hp): $68,000 MSRP
– 5.0L supercharged XFR (510 hp): $80,000 MSRP
