Pros

Exciting design, top-shelf luxury, technological goodies galore, available supercharged power


Model News

After a redesign in 2011, this year's XJ is mostly unchanged. The 2012 XJ gets new Portfolio packages on the base model that include 20-way front seats, heated and cooled front and rear seats, 4-zone climate control, additional leather interior trim, and chrome power-operated vents.

The Supersport loses standard adaptive cruise control. It's now available as an option.


Value Writeup

The Jaguar XJ has always been a premium symbol of ultimate automotive luxury. Prices start at $74,000, but that buys a smooth, powerful drivetrain as well as a specific kind of comfort and elegant, understated style that has always been emblematic of the XJ-- the kind unavailable from BMW, Audi or Cadillac.


Model Highlights

The XJ car comes in three different models--the XJ, the Supercharged and the Supersport, all of which are available in either standard or long wheelbases. Power across the range is derived from an advanced 5.0L V8 with dual independent variable cam timing. In the XJ, it produces 385 hp and 380 ft-lb of torque. The supercharged version features twin air intakes, variable inlet cam timing and the latest Eaton supercharger. The 470-hp version found in the Supercharged XJ will propel the car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds according to Jaguar, while the 510-hp iteration available in the top-line Supersport will do the sprint in just 4.7 seconds. Power in all XJ models is put to the rear wheels through an electronic 6-speed automatic transmission with Jaguar's sequential shift which adapts to driving styles and shifts at optimum engine speeds. Gears can also be shifted manually using steering wheel-mounted paddles.

If power is available in spades in the new XJ, so too is refinement. Depending on the model, owners can specify up to eleven interior colors and ten elegant veneers to taste, and for leather surfaces, there are eight different colors and three grades. Attractive phosphor blue lines of light illuminate the cabin at night and a handsome analog clock with a spun-metal face sits prominently in the center of the dash.

Interior amenities on the XJ include Jaguar's Smart Key System, with keyless entry and start. Integrated controls on the heated steering wheel allow drivers to access the car's impressive entertainment system and the fully automatic, dual-zone climate control features particle and odor filtration, humidity control and automatic window demisting. In the XJL and all supercharged models, the system is 4-zone to allow individual control for rear passengers as well. Long-wheelbase models incorporate rear business trays in handcrafted wood veneer.

Jaguar loads up the XJ with technology, intended to enhance both its driving capabilities and the experience within the cabin. JaguarDrive Control offers selectable modes for different driving conditions and moods, from slick roads where Winter Mode is required, to back roads where Dynamic Mode works with the suspension for a sportier drive. In the supercharged cars, a sophisticated active differential distributes torque to the rear wheels to suit the traction and current driving dymanics. Adaptive cruise control, standard on Supersport models, employs radar technology to monitor the road ahead and adjust the XJ's following distance while driving with cruise control engaged.

Inside, Jaguar iTech features an interactive HD touchscreen with navigation, virtual instruments, interactive voice controls and a media hub. A 1,200-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system, designed specifically for the XJ, combines 20 speakers and state-of-the-art sound processing to deliver exceptional sound quality. A rear seat entertainment system allows passengers to watch DVDs or listen to music stored in the car's hard disk.

Safety is paramount in the new XJ, rooted in the car's aluminum and magnesium bodyshell. A bevy of airbags and active seatbelts help protect all occupants in the event of a crash, while an advanced anti-lock braking system helps drivers avoid accidents in the first place.
