It's expected that the new XF will be powered by the company's new Ingenium four-cylinder engines, as well as V6 and V8 motors in upscale and performance models.
According to Jaguar, the new XF "will set new business segment benchmarks for weight and efficiency". One model in the range will have a fuel economy rating of better than 4.0L/100km (70mpg UK).
The interior of the second-generation XF will feature a widescreen version of the company's new InControl touchscreen infotainment system.
In the XF S model, pictured above, the new car will be available with an all LCD instrument panel, as well as a Meridian surround sound system, three memory settings for the electric seats and steering wheel, an electronic parking brake, multiple drive modes, automatic engine stop/start, the company's pop-up rotary gear selector, voice recognition, keyless entry and push button start.
Jaguar will reveal the new XF via live-streamed event where the new sedan will cross a body of water via a pair of 34mm diameter high wires. The car will then receive its full public debut at the 2015 New York auto show at the beginning of April.
