2021 Jaguar XF Lineup Simplified For Canada

One trim level, new standard features, much lower starting price.


  • The 2021 Jaguar XF starts at $60,570 in Canada, before freight and delivery charges.

  • One trim level remaining in Canada, the P300 R-Dynamic SE AWD.

  • Changes include a redesigned interior and a new infotainment system.


As consumers continue their relentless shift towards crossovers and trucks, luxury-car sales have been in a downward spiral for a while now. As a result, the 2021 Jaguar XF’s trim level lineup has been simplified, and buyers can choose any trim level they want among just one.

For the 2021 model year, the XF will be offered in Canada in P300 R-Dynamic SE AWD configuration only, but it will boast an exhaustive list of standard features in order to continue competing with the Audi A6, the BMW 5 Series, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Volvo S90, among others.

Under the hood, the 2021 Jaguar XF gets the turbocharged 2.0L inline-four engine that develops 296 horsepower, along with 295 pound-feet of torque between 1,500 and 4,500 rpm, as standard in Canada, matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The manufacturer claims a 0-100 km/h time of 6.1 seconds and a governed top speed of 250 km/h. In 2020, the XF was also available with a 247-hp version of the 2.0L engine—called the P250—and a 375-hp supercharged 3.0L V6—called the P380.

A sporty appearance comes standard, with R-Dynamic bumpers, grille, side vents and body-coloured door handles, complemented by 19-inch 5 split-spoke alloy wheels—although other 19- and 20-inch wheel designs are available for a few extra bucks. The XF’s exterior has been revised slightly with new LED headlights, and as its name suggests, the optional Black Exterior Package gives the XF a more sinister look with darkened exterior elements, a black trunklid spoiler and black badging. A Dynamic Handling Package is also offered, which sharpens the car’s road manners and adds a couple of sportier cosmetic touches.

Inside, the XF can be dressed up with aluminum and open-pore wood finishes, while one of four leather upholsteries can be specified, including Ebony, Light Oyster, Mars Red and Siena Tan. The dashboard, steering wheel, centre console and door panels have been redesigned, and also new for 2021 is the JaguarDrive selector, a spring-loaded shift knob that replaces the motorized rotary dial in previous model years of the sedan.

A new Pivi Pro infotainment system is included as well, which features an 11.4-inch touchscreen and a control menu layout that’s easier to use. The standard 400-watt Meridian sound system rounds up 12 speakers, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, SiriusXM compatibility, wireless phone charging and an online package with a one-year data subscription are all included in the 2021 Jaguar XF as well. Other tech goodies can be added, such as head-up display, an Activity Key (a water and shockproof wrist band) and a Meridian surround sound system with 16 speakers.

Comfort and convenience features like dual-zone climate control, a heated steering wheel and heated 16-way power-adjustable front seats are standard, although ventilated and massaging seats up front, heated rear seats, a heated windshield, soft-close doors, adaptive cruise control and a power rear window sunshade are available. Meanwhile, advanced safety features such as blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning and lane keep assist, forward collision alert with autonomous emergency braking and a driver attention detection system are all baked into the XF in Canada.

Base price for the 2021 Jaguar XF in Canada is set at $60,570 before freight and delivery charges, which is a steal compared to the 2020 model that started at $65,100. In other Jaguar news, the E-PACE received a slew of enhancements for the 2021 model year, while the F-PACE benefits from a redesigned interior similar to the XF’s. However, the compact Jaguar XE sedan will be dropped from the lineup after the 2020 model year.
