Ostensibly, the differences will simply be dimensional. Platform and styling are said to be identical

With the XE expected to more than double Jaguar’s global sales next year to about 160,000 units, the firm is keen to roll out new models and build a range of cars that sit together to offer a more cohesive line-up.

As a result, the new XF will draw heavily on the styling of the XE. Insiders claim that the new XF will consequently have sharper, more dynamic body creases than today’s model and its proportions will be altered to follow the XE’s coupé-like silhouette, albeit with a less dramatic ‘cab-rear’ look.

Interesting. Looking forward to what the new XF will end up looking like going with the design language used on the XE. Do you think there's any chance we can get a look at that with in the coming months at one of the many shows?

So it will be a bigger XE, but the engine will be the same and all the features too? Seems like a safe choice, but i'll reserve judgement till we see the whole thing.

There might be a new grille.
Significantly, the new XF 
will also carry a scaled-up version of the XE’s grille, as Jaguar moves to ensure 
that all of its models are instantly recognizable in the rear-view mirror of drivers ahead.

Ah, no. Scaled up, as in larger. If the XF is larger then the XE logically the grill on the XF will be larger (or scaled up)....

its called modular, multiple use for componenets is cost effective, not parts bin diving. Its called operational efficiency.

There is no shame in this, but it's not like its anything to get excited about. The design will be predictable. It's nothing new. That is basically what many of the other luxury car makers do though so they are falling into line. Same design different size, or roof line... Just minor changes.
