Jaguar Performance Sets the Standard for Other Brands - See What Makes the Jaguar XF Different from Other Luxury Sedans:

With the Jaguar brand, performance is in the pedigree-the 2018 Jaguar XF Sedan comes from a long line of luxury, opulence, and proven performance. That performance owes itself to Jaguar's tireless innovation and commitment to superior quality and superior engineering. Here are some of the performance features that put the 2018 Jaguar XF a touch above other luxury sedans:

  • Jaguar Ingenium Engine Range: Recently, Jaguar debuts a new line of engines specifically crafted for easy, rewarding performance and built upon the principals of graceful power in a compact, aluminum block. Known as the Ingenium line, these engines offer lean and power performance becoming of a luxury sedan like the Jaguar XF; and in the 2018 XF, there are two gas Ingenium engines offered: a 247-horsepower engine and a 296-horsepower engine.
  • Jaguar Intelligent All Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD): This available all-wheel drive (AWD) system can be paired to any drivetrain in the 2018 Jaguar XF line, and it is exclusive to the Jaguar brand, so you won't find this anywhere else; what the IDD system does is utilize intelligent algorithms engineered by Jaguar to react to specific road conditions, discerning between the various surfaces to exert the maximum available traction. Rather than being purely reactive-helping you regain traction when traction-loss occurs-the IDD system is also proactive-it adjusts to help prevent the loss of traction in the first place.
  • JaguarDrive Control: Another awesome Jaguar performance feature, JaguarDrive Control lets you tailor your vehicle to the drive ahead; you choose between Standard, Eco, Dynamic, or Rain-Ice-Snow drive modes, and the vehicle adjusts performance to match. As an example, Dynamic mode will make things sportier, or Rain-Ice-Snow mode automatically dampens acceleration so you can exert more traction.

So, How Does It Compare? 2018 Jaguar XF Sedan vs. 2018 Lexus GS Sedan:

  • Potent Power at the Top of the Trim Tree: When you're consider a new performance luxury sedan like the 2018 Jaguar XF, you're probably looking for thrilling, rewarding power. In our humble opinion, that usually comes from the top-tier. That leaves us looking at the 2018 Jaguar XF 35T Portfolio Limited Edition AWD and the 2018 Lexus GS 400h F Sport RWD-if it's power you seek, consider looking a little more closely at the 2018 Jaguar XF 35T Portfolio Limited Edition AWD, which offers a 3.0-liter V6 rated at 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, which the 2018 Lexus GS 400h F Sport RWD is only slinging 286 horsepower and 257 pound-feet of torque.
  • Diesel Engine Availability: If you've spent any time in Europe, then you know how popular diesel engines can be thanks to their fuel efficiency-boosting potential. If you're looking for a diesel option, don't look to the 2018 Lexus GS, because you won't find one there. Instead, check out the 2018 Jaguar XF, which offers you the option of a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine rated at 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. Not only are diesel engines generally more fuel efficient, they also make more power available at lower RPMs, so your power is more readily available and more rewarding.
  • Base Fuel Economy: For the purposes of comparability, we're using just the base trims, engine, and rear-wheel drive (RWD) configurations. The 2018 Jaguar XF 20D RWD model gets 42/31 mpg highway/city, while the 2018 Lexus GS 300 RWD sports a paltry 32/22 mpg highway/city.
