ALL WHEEL DRIVE BUT STILL ALL JAGUAR
DECISIVE POWER, DEFINITIVE LUXURY
TO DRIVE OR BE DRIVEN
WHAT IS THE XJ?
The XJ redefines what a luxury car should be. A dramatic combination of beauty, luxury and power, the XJ delivers a refreshingly dynamic driving experience. For the passenger, the cabin is built for stretching out and relaxing. No car looks, or feels, like the XJ.
The XJ is perfect whether you’re in the mood to drive or be driven. With exceptional levels of luxury for passengers, the XJ also offers the kind of dynamic driving experience you’d expect from a Jaguar car. As a driver or passenger, you’ll discover a quality of craftsmanship that sets the XJ apart, exemplified by carefully considered choices of colours, materials and finishes.
Create your ideal space in the XJ cabin – a calm environment that’s designed to stimulate all your senses. Relax in total luxury, cocooned by glove-soft leather, contemporary surfaces and an array of fine details, many of which you can select yourself. Start with a choice of interior colour themes and combinations. Next, consider the broad sweep of lustrous wood veneer accents.
Each element of the veneer is painstakingly joined so the grain flows around the cabin, and each side perfectly mirrors the other. You can choose from up to 11 different veneers, depending on the model, from traditional Burl Walnut to modern Piano Black or Carbon Fibre. Add the finishing touch with carefully chosen leathers, sourced from the finest suppliers in Europe, in a choice of seven different colours.

Driving the XJ is a unique experience. Thanks to its rigid but lightweight aluminum construction and near perfect weight distribution, the XJ delivers agile, dynamic performance. Intuitive on-board technologies make driving pleasurable, from the effortless gearshift and enhanced driving control of the JaguarDrive Selector™ and JaguarDrive Control™ to the smooth and responsive gear changes of Jaguar Sequential Shift™, which adapts to suit your driving style. What’s more, Adaptive Dynamics4 monitors driver inputs and optimizes the car’s suspension settings for a superb combination of ride comfort and control.
Dynamic performance is built into every XJ engine to help ensure outstanding performance and efficiency. For responsive, whisper-smooth gear changes and remarkable fuel efficiency, a state-of-the-art 8-speed automatic transmission is mated to all three XJ engines. The engine range extends from the superb 3.0 litre, supercharged V6 340 hp engine found in the XJ and XJL AWD, to the impressive 5.0 litre, supercharged V8 470 hp engine in the XJ Supercharged, to the most powerful engine ever fitted to the XJ line: the 5.0 litre, supercharged V8 550 hp engine found in the XJR.
The beauty of the XJ is more than skin deep. Its aluminum monocoque construction is exceptionally strong yet light, with near perfect front-to-rear weight distribution. Its outstanding rigidity provides confident, precise handling, and it is designed to absorb the impact of poor road surfaces in its stride.
This advanced body structure also helps the XJ achieve better fuel economy than it would with a heavier steel structure. That's not all - 50 percent of the aluminum used in the XJ is from recycled sources.
