2016 Jaguar XF chassis testing mule spied for the first time

Jaguar XF just received a facelifted update this year and here we have the very first spy shots of the next generation XF chassis testing mule testing on the roads in England.

The next geneation XF chassis testing mule looks different than the mule for the new Jaguar XS which we have seen couple of times and is shorter and not as wide.

The XF mule uses current generation body with wider wheel cases at the front, modified bumper, revised bonnet and extra air intakes between the front wheels and the doors.

Next generation XF is expected to use much more aluminium to save weigh. A new aluminium platform is expected and also all-aluminium body parts like doors, boot lid and bonnet.

There will be a wide range of new four cylinder engines, replacing V6 units(both diesel and petrol) linked to nine-speed automatic gearbox. The diesel units is likely a 1.8-litre four-put with 240bhp, while petrol units are reported to displace 1.5 and 1.8 litres, producing around 170bhp per litre.

As the testing has just started, it will be a while until we see full body prototypes. Stay tuned for more details!
