First locally-built Jaguar for China.

The Jaguar XF-L has been unveiled at 2016 Auto China (2016 Beijing Motor Show). The Jaguar XJ's long-wheelbase version is available globally but, Jaguar Land Rover says, the Jaguar XF's long-wheelbase version has been developed exclusively for China, suggesting that there are no plans as of now to introduce it in other international markets. The Jaguar XF-L will rival other stretched executive sedans like the Audi A6L, Mercedes E-Class long-wheelbase, long-wheelbase BMW 5 Series and the Volvo S90L.

The standard wheelbase 2016 Jaguar XF that was introduced at the New York International Auto Show in April last year is 4,954 mm long and has a 2,960 mm-long wheelbase. The length, wheelbase and other dimensions of the Jaguar XF-L are yet to be revealed. The stretched version will likely be offered with the same engine(s) from the standard version.

The latter is available with three engine choices in China: 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol unit developing 177 kW (237 hp) and 340 Nm of torque, 3.0-litre V6 unit developing 250 kW (335 hp) and 450 Nm of torque and and a 3.0-litre V6 unit developing 280 kW (375 hp) and 450 Nm of torque.
