For Saloon and Sportbrake

Jaguar is now offering an updated four-cylinder, 2.2-liter ECO2 diesel engine for the 2014 XF.

Available for the Saloon and Sportbrake versions, the ECO2 engine is capable of delivering 163 HP (120 kW) at 3,500 rpm and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque between 2,000 and 5,500 rpm. When equipped with this engine, the 2014 XF will return 57.7 mpg UK (48 mpg US or 4.89 liters / 100 km) with CO2 emissions of 129 g/km.

It will perform the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) run in 9.8 seconds while 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 10.5 seconds, en route to a top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h).

Aside from the revised engine, the Jaguar XF also benefits from an updated satellite-navigation system which packs one-way road visualization, smart keyboard and more intuitive mapping.

  • The 2014 Model Year XF, featuring Jaguar’s new four-cylinder, 2.2-litre diesel 163PS ECO2 engine, adds real-world efficiency to the XF range without compromising on the luxury, performance and refinement expected of a Jaguar saloon

  • Available in Saloon and Sportbrake guise, the MY14 XF with the ECO2 engine is capable of achieving 57.7mpg with a CO2 figure of just 129g/km

  • The MY14 XF with ECO2 engine is offered with an Intelligent Stop-Start system that uses a Twin Solenoid Starter (TSS) to shut down the engine when the car comes to a halt, helping to reduce emissions and improve fuel consumption

  • An eight-speed automatic transmission enables optimal acceleration through the rev range while still maintaining the composed character of the XF saloon

  • All MY14 XF cars to be fitted with extended navigation system features

  • Revised exterior paint colours include Osmium replacing Crystal Blue and Dark Sapphire replacing Indigo Blue


The 2014 XF Saloon and Sportbrake with Jaguar’s ECO2 powertrain represent a compelling combination of elegance and real-world efficiency, helping to reduce the tax burdens on drivers and fleet managers alike while still retaining the luxury and refinement already associated with the XF range. The 2.2-litre four-cylinder ECO2 engine is offered in combination with Jaguar’s Intelligent Stop-Start system and an eight-speed gearbox, enabling the MY14 XF to deliver the performance and driver appeal expected of a Jaguar along with reduced emissions and greatly improved fuel consumption.

Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover UK said:  “The 2014 XF with this revised engine calibration opens up the unique Jaguar ownership experience to a whole new segment. Cost-conscious drivers, business users and fleet managers will be able to enjoy the refinement, luxury and seductive design of a Jaguar while benefiting from its low emissions and high fuel efficiency.”

ECO2 turbo diesel engine

Jaguar’s new four-cylinder, 2.2-litre diesel 163PS ECO2 engine, which works in combination with an eight-speed automatic transmission, has new larger Exhaust Gas Recirculation valves and a revised cooling assembly which combine to reduce emissions figures by a further 6g/km of CO2 over the 2013 Jaguar XF. The new car is capable of achieving 57.7mpg with a CO2 figure of just 129g/km. An appealing proposition to company car drivers and fleet managers, this XF represents all the benefits of driving a Jaguar along with greater fuel economy and reduced emissions.

TSS/Stop-Start system

The low emissions produced by the ECO2 engine are helped further by Jaguar’s Stop-Start system, which uses a Twin Solenoid Starter (TSS) to shut down the engine when the car comes to a halt and restarting it in less time than it takes for the driver’s foot to move from the brake to the accelerator. The system also offers ‘change of mind’ functionality, enabling the engine to quickly restart even during its rundown phase to allow the driver to, for example, exploit a gap in traffic at a junction. An illuminated 'ECO' symbol appears on the Instrument Panel when the engine has been stopped by the system. Stop-Start can be turned off manually, but it will automatically be turned on again for the vehicle’s next journey with every ignition cycle. The system operates in all modes apart from Reverse.

The MY14 XF has a secondary battery fitted specifically for engine re-starting, meaning that all the normal car systems – such as the entertainment system, the ventilation and lights – continue to receive power from the standard car battery and are unaffected by the re-start. In addition, a complex control system ensures that the Stop/Start operation only occurs when the car does not require the engine for other functions.

New features

The MY14 Jaguar XF sees the introduction of extended navigation system features that provide more focused and intuitive mapping as well as iGO primo, which adds a range of comprehensive address search options, a smart keyboard and one-way road visualisation, among a host of additional benefits.
