Earlier this year, Jaguar unveiled the new XF Diesel, which is powered by a 2.2 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes a 187-hp with a maximum torque of 332 lb-ft. Mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox and a stop-start system, the 2012 Jaguar XF 2.2 goes from 0 to 62 mph in 8.5 seconds with a top speed of 140 mph.
The Jaguar XF Diesel is now the first diesel Jaguar to enter the USA and will be making a cross-country trip from New York City to Los Angeles, California. The trip will last a total of 7 days covering 2,800 miles and 11 states.
The Jaguar XF Diesel will end its journey at the 2011 LA Auto Show.
Why is Jag doing this? Probably to see what time of traction the XF Diesel gathers in the United States. Eventually, the automaker may start offering the diesel XF in the United States – which would be an awesome idea.
