As far as I know, no trim level ever had Jaguar Voice as standard, it's an optional extra (read, money maker from those willing to pay).
In the 2010 brochure I have it's not even mentioned.. but then neither is thistle4celtic1's 4.2L V8... 🤷‍♂️
You got me wondering, so I looked at the build sheet jagcrc@jaguarlandrover sent me. I noticed a (bolded) few items that I definitely don't have. I think the 625 n/m of torque is only the 5.0L supercharged engine, so I'm not sure how accurate the list is but it does state VOICE ACTIVATED CONTROLS (likely as an upgrade).

This 2010 brochure shows a 4.2L V8 on page 30. I think it's the base model I have, but not positive.

Interestingly, I can't see Jaguar Voice in either manual.. I then noticed that the brochure you linked to is a US version, this is the UK version I have: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ahgx6zfrs200by8/2010-XF-Brochure.pdf?dl=

The info that comes from CRC comes from TOPIX, and that isn't known for being accurate.. :D

My suspicion is that Jaguar actually have 'stuff' in development in some models for evaluation before they/it are then released in later models.. for instance, my car has 'Queue Assist' enabled even though it was never an option on the X250 facelift, though it is an option on the X260...

Also.. If you look at the original concept XF car, it looks far more like the 'facelift' than the first released car..

Thanks for the info Chris, does therefore 'Comms' do all of the 'Voice' stuff except phone handling on a pre-facelift then?

Its such a small technology that would cost Jag pennies to put into a luxury car to improve sales. My 2007 Honda civic had voice, was standard on all executive models.

Yes, as far as I can remember, it is more than five years since I parted with my pre-facelift XF but all the information is in the handbook.

It is not the only example. Another that springs to mind is the folding rear seats on the saloon. It was an expensive option for factory fit yet genuine Jaguar conversion kits were sold by dealers for a fraction of the price.

As for comparing different makes, look at Kia, many items that were extras on my XF Portfolio facelift were fitted as standard to the most basic Kia.
Going back in time, Toyota made there name in this country by having everything fitted as standard compared to BMW where even a radio was extra.

I know.... i can feel the pain, the good thing is that the 1st and 2nd generation xf are fibre optics so easy to upgrade. I hate aftermarket systems (IMO) they don't just fit the originality of the car (form follows function) We know what the stealers want so we upgrade the system using feelbay etc and leave them to their devices.
