Although Jaguar doesn’t currently sell it’s 2.2-liter diesel model in the US, it clearly seems to want Americans to know how frugal it can be – hopefully with an eye to introducing this car in the future.

To make us all aware of its ability, an XF 2.2 diesel departed New York City earlier today with the aim of arriving in Los Angeles in seven days time - a journey of more than 2800 miles that crosses 11 states.

With independent UK test drivers David and Alexander Madgwick at the wheel, the British-registered, right-hand drive XF in Polaris White will cross the continent to evaluate how frugal the four-cylinder engine can be.

We’re assured the car is totally stock, having been shipped from Jaguar's global headquarters in Coventry, England, making it the first Jaguar diesel to enter the USA.

A GPS device will be fitted to the car to allow the project to be interactive – the daily progress of the XF can be tracked, and its average speed and economy noted at either www.facebook.com/Jaguar or www.twitter.com/Jaguar (#XFCoast2Coast).

It's not the first time the XF diesel has embarked on a long-distance trip. Earlier this year one was driven from the Jaguar factory to Munich – a distance of 816 miles on a single tank of diesel and achieved an average of 47mpg US.

Despite being the most fuel efficient Jaguar ever, the XF 2.2 produces 190hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, to allow the XF to accelerate from rest to 60mph in just 8.0-seconds before reaching a top speed of 140mph.
