Jaguar XF Next to Adopt XE Aluminum Architecture

The next-generation Jaguar XF is next on the list to benefit from lightweight aluminum.

With the new XE being added to the British automaker’s lineup, the XF will grow in size to separate it from the smaller XE sedan, adding more comfort and space for its passengers. Underpinning the second-generation XF will be Jaguar Land Rover’s new iQ[Al] aluminum architecture which will be scalable and will be used on a wide range of vehicles.

Given the sharing of architecture, it’s also a safe bet that the next-generation Jaguar XF will also use the new family of Ingenium engines that will be powering the smaller XE. Known engines from the Ingenium family include a 2.0-liter four-cylinder while the XE will also be available with the supercharged V6 that’s found in the F-Type. Lastly, expect the next-gen XF to also adopt the XE’s aluminum double-wishbone front suspension.
