Jaguar introduced a new model for the North American market today.  The 2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged sees an increase in power over the previous edition by the same name.  The automaker also released U.S. pricing information for the XF lineup.

The new XF Supercharged churns out 470 hp and up to 424 ft-lb from its 5.0-liter AJ-V8 Gen III engine.  This engine was shown off earlier in the year at the Detroit Auto Show, but had only been planned in naturally aspirated form for the 2010 XF.  At Detroit, Jaguar said the XFR would only get the 5.0-liter supercharged unit, tuned to deliver 510 hp on that model.

"The Jaguar XF Supercharged will offer consumers a compelling luxury sedan choice with benchmark handling ability and truly memorable performance," said Jaguar Managing Director Mike O'Driscoll.

Pricing for the 2010 Jaguar XF begins at $52,000 for the 300 hp 4.2-liter base model, with the 385 hp 5.0-liter naturally aspirated XF Premium going for $57,000.  The XF Supercharged commands a $68,000 pricetag, while the XFR will set you back $80,000.  Prices include destination and delivery charges of $850, but do not include any taxes or document charges.

Jag's new XF Supercharged has 12% more horses under the hood compared to the 2009 Supercharged XF, which used the 4.2-liter engine.  The new model has a 0-60mph time of 4.9 seconds, and makes use of both Active Differential Control and Adapative Dyamics.  Each of these systems comes standard, along with ventilated disc brakes, painted calipers, quad-tailpipes, and 20-inch, five triple-spoke alloy wheels.  Rich Oak veneer trim is available on this model only, which also features twin needle upholstery stitching, premium headliner, heated steering wheel, and a 440-Watt Bowers & Wilkens surround sound system with HD radio.

Sales of the 2010 Jaguar XF Supercharged will begin in October 2009.

I bought a black Jaguar 2010 XF V8 (Chassis Number: SAJAA07F1ALR49036) from Dubai recently. I was overwhelmed with excitement along with my family when suddenly my brother noticed that the color in the left/front door (passenger side) is of different color. It is a little bit dark green rather than black, which annoys me realizing that its cost me more than a $100,000 and to think that it is unexpected of JAGUAR, a very famous and elegant brand of European car, to sell cars to its patrons without even passing the quality control. Aside from this, there was a noisy sound in the brake pads whenever i hit it and again DSC alert comes out in the screen twice. It goes off whenever I switched off and on the engine. I returned to them and they told me they want to paint that door again. I REFUSED since the car did not even reached 1000 KM and cause its just less than a month since its been purchased so they MUST replace the entire door and they agreed with that. However, I feel so bad spending this amount of money on such a car like that. Either return my money back or at least give me brand new car. (thats what i asked forand the car still with them for more than 3 months) "That's the Jaugar 2010 !!!" for more info send to fj-one@hotmail.com

It's too clean looking to be a Hyundai. It looks more like a handsome iteration of a more rounded Ford design...

So the US gets the Supercharged 5.0 V8 with two different states of tune? 470bhp AND 510bhp?

Looks like it. The 470hp 5.0 Supercharged model replaces the 420hp 4.2 Supercharged model.

I see what's happened here. Obviously the old S'charged 4.2 couldn't be called the XFR because it wasn't the XFR. It was called the XF SC. However, now that there is an XFR, Americans will riot in confusion about what happened to the XF SC. Where did it go? So, as a psychological, and yet relatively inexpensive trick, they've just detuned the engine and made two variants of it for the US. This isn't the first time I've seen this. For starts, where else in the world can you buy a car from the future today? "My BMW is a 2011 model" What? It's not really from the future. And also, incidentally from Land Rover, who should have a problem now that the LR3 has been upgraded to become the LR4, will that make the LR2 the new LR3 when it gets an upgrade. No one seems to think this through.
