Jaguar XF Sportbrake 20d and Bailey

Steve reviewed on 01 June 2018 a Jaguar XF Sportbrake 20d (180 PS/132 Kw, Year: 2017 --->) with a Bailey Unicorn Madrid of 1496 kg.

In their new model XF Jaguar have made significant improvements for those choosing to use their car to tow a caravan. There's now a road light test facility to check all your van's lights are working correctly, plus in the hand book is a table showing the min and max wattages for the road light bulbs that the car's electrical can support.

The new Sportbrake tows as well as the previous model even though its weight is slightly lower, I've found no stability issues on any roads or in any traffic situations. The new Jaguar designed engines are more economical than the previous Ford designed units. Our previous 2013 2.2D Sportbrake averaged 29 mpg when towing, the new 2.0 D is averaging 34 mpg and it's done less than 1000 miles so I expect it to improve as the car loosens up.

Jaguar XF 3.0 V6d and Lunar

Kev.H reviewed on 05 July 2017 a Jaguar XF 3.0 V6d (241 PS/177 Kw, Year: 2009 - 2013) with a Lunar Lexon 570 of 1377 kg.

Best Vehicle i have towed with in the 28yrs we have had tourers. Top gear (6th) easily selects , towing at 60 mph at only 1350 rpm on motorways occationally dropping to 5th to overtake, Average is 28 mpg. on a 500 mile trip. Lots of extra power in reserve if needed .

Jaguar XF Sportbrake 2.2 D-S and Lunar

Steve reviewed on 06 February 2015 a Jaguar XF Sportbrake 2.2 D-S (200 PS/147 Kw, Year: 2013 - 2017) with a Lunar Clubman SE of 1450 kg.

The 8 speed auto box on the Sportbrake makes towing a relaxing affair and a economic one too. Over the past few week-ends away with this van and car combination I've averaged 30 mpg when driving at around 55 mph. The 2015 Lunar Clubman SE tows smoothly and seems to be less affected by the wind than my 2011 Lunar Clubman SI was. This car and van combo is most deifnately 11/10. :)

Jaguar XF 2.7 V6 Diesel and Ace

Clive Pett reviewed on 23 August 2012 a Jaguar XF 2.7 V6 Diesel (207 PS/152 Kw, Year: 2007 - 2009) with a Ace Supreme Globestar of 1500 kg.

Fully laden the Ace Globestar will exceed the 85% ratio but will still be less than our XF 2.7d's kerbweight. When I first hitched up I thought "blimey this is a long outfit" but the van follows the car very well. It's a big van and you need to be aware of the rear end swinging out when you take a tight turn. In terms of weight we stick to a 100kg max loading (50% of the legal payload) which is potentially a lot of stuff but that gives a perfect 85% ratio. The jag tows this big van like a dream, no effort or fuss and it will still out accelerate most lorries if you need to. The nose weight limit of 75kg is on the low side and careful loading is required to get it right, make sure the vans inboard water tank is Empty or you won't stand a chance! Invest in a noseweight gauge or you will almost certainly exceed the limit. Fuel economy is good averaging around 28 to 31mpg depending on the terrain, I have had 34mpg on the motorway. The Ace is a great van with fittings that are optional even on the latest vans, the island bed in its own room is a delight as is the seperate shower. The loo is a little on the small side but adequate. We mainly use it as a big two berth and it is a real home from home. I thoroughly recommend both the van and the car, together they are a little bit of magic! Look out for the giant Panda on the back!

Jaguar XF 3.0 V6d and Lunar

Steve reviewed on 10 October 2011 a Jaguar XF 3.0 V6d (241 PS/177 Kw, Year: 2009 - 2013) with a Lunar Clubman SI of 1460 kg.

I've just swapped my Jaguar X-type 2.2 diesel estate for a Jaguar XF 3.0 diesel and I am really impressed with the performance, it tows the caravan effortlessly, in fact keeping the speed down to 60 is a problem. What's more I am getting better fuel efficiency with the XF. The X-type typically averaged 22 mpg when towing the Lunar Clubman, over the same routes the XF is giving 25 mpg.

Jaguar XF 3.0 V6d and Bailey

Chris Vinter reviewed on 04 May 2011 a Jaguar XF 3.0 V6d (241 PS/177 Kw, Year: 2009 - 2013) with a Bailey Unicorn Valencia of 1565 kg.

The XF is a pleasure to drive and the Bailey Unicorn is an ideal partner. Beware of rear tyre wear whilst towing; the engine torque is ideal for normal driving but can cause significant tyre wear whilst towing.

Jaguar XF 3.0 V6d and Coachman

John Nightingale reviewed on 01 March 2011 a Jaguar XF 3.0 V6d (241 PS/177 Kw, Year: 2009 - 2013) with a Coachman VIP 520/4 of 1590 kg.

I chose the Jaguar XF 3.0d to replace a BMW 530D which had been an excellent tow car. Slightly heavier than the BMW, shorter overhang at the rear, more power and superb brakes has resulted in an outfit which is a joy to tour with. Covered around 4000 miles of towing last year, including in France, where long distances were covered and it was always relaxed and very quiet, an important point in reducing fatigue. Would certainly choose the same car again and I am very pleased with my choice of car both for solo and towing performance.

Jaguar XF 2.7 V6 Diesel and Swift

Mr r newbold reviewed on 22 December 2010 a Jaguar XF 2.7 V6 Diesel (207 PS/152 Kw, Year: 2007 - 2009) with a Swift Conqueror 640 of 1619 kg.

Although the 640 is slightly heavy for the Jaguar it tows with no trouble and has power to spare.We have towed this van for two years with the Jaguar and have had no trouble what so ever.Even if you need to overtake it makes easy work of it.

Mrs Ildiko Berry reviewed on 09 April 2009 a Jaguar XF 2.7 V6 Diesel (207 PS/152 Kw, Year: 2007 - 2009) with a Bailey Pageant Limousin of 1578 kg.

We have bought the Limousin and towed with a Jaguar XF. It towed like a dream. we towed to Somerset and did not have any problems with hills etc. This is a great match by far....
