2017 Jaguar XF vs. 2017 Lexus GS 350


GS 350


The performance sedan segment just got even more competitive. The 2017 Jaguar XF and the 2017 Lexus GS 350 both combine luxurious, high tech features with thrilling driving dynamics. From a distance, they might seem equals in performance, utility, and engine options, but once you take a closer look, many important differences begin to emerge. There's no need to settle for second best-find out the winner at Jaguar Hoffman Estates today.

Diesel Capability


A diesel engine will often offer better fuel economy and acceleration than a gasoline engine, and it's an advantage you'll appreciate while getting up to speed on Interstate 90 near Schaumburg. However, only the Jaguar XF gives you this option. The XF 20d sedan's efficient 2.0L four-cylinder turbodiesel engine with rear-wheel drive reaches 318 lb-ft of torque and 31 mpg city/42 mpg highway in EPA estimates. That's miles ahead of the rear-wheel drive Lexus GS's maximum torque of 280 lb-ft and fuel economy of 20 mpg city/28 mpg highway. If you'd like to take advantage of diesel capability, the XF is your best option.

Maximum Performance

For drivers who will accept nothing but the best in performance, you'll want to choose the vehicle that offers the most powerful available engine:

  • The 2017 Lexus GS 350 comes in two trim levels but only one engine. This 3.5L V6 delivers 311 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.

  • The 2017 Jaguar XF can be equipped with one of two engines and many different levels of performance. At most, its 3.0L supercharged V6 can deliver a maximum output of 380 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.

With that kind of exciting power, you'll want to book some time on the racetrack in Hoffman Estates.


Customizable Cargo

Fortunately for Schaumburg families, the XF is more than just a speed demon. Its spacious trunk offers 19.1 cubic feet of space, more than enough room for sporting goods, supplies for weekend projects, and plenty of groceries from Mariano's. On top of that, the rear seats fold down to make room for long items. Sadly, the trunk of the GS trunk doesn't offer the same level of utility. It maxes out at 14.3 cubic feet of cargo room, and the rear seats don't fold down.
