The 2018 Jaguar XF delivers a more aggressive driving experience than the 2018 Lexus GS 300. Check out these advantages before you make your choice:

  • More base trim horsepower and torque
  • The enhanced traction of available all-wheel drive
  • An available V6 engine that puts out 380 hp

On top of that, the XF can be equipped with a diesel engine and high tech adaptive headlights. Find out more about the benefits of the Jaguar XF in this guide.


Choose the More Powerful Engine for Hoffman Estates

One big advantage of the Jaguar XF is its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. See how it stacks up to the engine included in the Lexus GS 300:

  • 2018 Jaguar XF
    • Engine: 2.0L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder
    • Horsepower: 247 hp
    • Torque: 269 lb-ft
  • 2018 Lexus GS 300
    • Engine: 2.0L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder
    • Horsepower: 241 hp
    • Torque: 258 lb-ft

In addition to the XF's performance advantage in the base trim, it can be outfitted with your choice of a 4-cylinder diesel engine or an upgraded 4-cylinder gas engine that puts out 296 hp. Sadly, neither of those are available in the GS 300.

Upgraded Performance in the XF

While the GS 300 is only offered with one engine, the XF can be equipped with a supercharged V6 that puts out the following specs:

  • 2018 Jaguar XF S
    • Engine: 3.0L Supercharged V6
    • Horsepower: 380 hp
    • Torque: 339 lb-ft

That propels the XF from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds, almost 2 seconds faster than the GS 300. The XF can also be outfitted with all-wheel drive in many configurations, but that enhanced traction and control isn't not offered with the GS 300. To tackle tough rain and snow in Schaumburg, the Jaguar XF is the better choice.
