The Jaguar XF-Type premiered as a concept car at the 2007 International Auto Show held in North America. The concept C-XF included a 4.2-liter V8 supercharged engine, 6-speed automatic transmission with Jaguar sequential shift, luxury interior accessories, Jaguar drive selector, and a dual view screen. In the American automotive market the Jaguar XF came in the 2009 model year. The XF styling differed from the C-XF concept by the front lights and nose, which included an oval mesh grill inherited from the original Jaguar XJ of 1968. The Jaguar XF became the only sedan-based expression of the innovative 'sporting luxury' design. This Jaguar's new approach combined features and space of a luxury sedan with sports car styling and performance.
The Jaguar XF is produced at the Castle Bromwich plant (the United Kingdom). The XF model features the Ford DEW98 platform. The vehicle replaced its predecessor - the Jaguar S-Type. The XF uses the S-Type boot lid and varies from it by improved trunk space. Via computational fluid dynamics used for the car body development, the Jaguar XF demonstrates the best aerodynamic performance of any ever Jaguar produced, and even better than limited edition XJ220 super car. The North American models are available in the following trims: luxury, premium luxury and supercharged luxury. The luxury models include 4.2 liter engine producing 300 hp. The premium models are equipped with a 4.2-liter engine rating 310 hp. The supercharged version is powered by the 4.2-liter engine producing 420 hp.

The model is equipped with the following Jaguar XF-type parts: adaptive dynamics and active differential control, heated steering wheel, and improved ventilated disc brakes. The XF supercharged version is provided with the unique Jaguar accessories, including a rich oak veneer and Jaguar suede cloth premium headlining.

The interior design features contrast stitching on leather trim, deep-pile carpet mats with contrast edging, unique veneer and Jaguar suede cloth premium headlining.
