Jaguar has extravagant plans for unveiling the all-new XF sedan ahead of the upcoming 2015 New York auto show. The British automaker plans to have the 2016 Jaguar XF cross a body of water suspended on a pair of 1.3-inch diameter wires. The high-line feat is meant to illustrate the light and agile nature of Jaguar’s newest luxury sedan.

Changes for the new Jaguar XF will be relatively minor, as previous reports from AUTOMOBILE European bureau chief Georg Kacher suggested the car won't have revolutionary changes from today's model. As our spy photos showed, the car will likely grow a little bit, helping to improve interior room. Increased use of aluminum could drop the car's weight by as much as 220 pounds, which could also improve fuel efficiency. Kacher reported that the XF will essentially move closer to the current XJ luxury sedan, providing more separation between the new Jaguar XE and the XF.

Although it's tough to tell how the exterior of the 2016 Jaguar XF will differ from today's model, the interior teaser photo shows a redesigned center stack with a wider touchscreen interface and new horizontal rows of climate controls. Farther below, the car's rotary transmission shifter moves to the center of the console ahead of the cupholders. The instrument cluster adopts a centrally mounted speedometer in its digital display, and the shape of the upper dashboard has been softened and new, smaller air vents fitted.

Look for more details once the 2016 Jaguar XF makes its official debut on March 24. The car will be shown publicly at the 2015 New York auto show before going on sale this fall.
