The beauty of the XJ is more than skin deep. Its aluminum unibody construction is strong yet light. Its outstanding rigidity provides confident, precise handling and 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 — up to 50 percent of the aluminum used in the XJ is from recycled sources.
The 3.0L V6 340 hp Supercharged engine provides high performance with an immediate response even at low engine speeds. With 332 lb-ft of torque, it can accelerate the XJ from rest to 60 mph in as fast as 5.7 seconds (6.1 seconds with AWD). Available on the XJ R-Sport, XJ R-Sport AWD, XJL Portfolio and XJL Portfolio AWD.
The XJR575 driving dynamics are assisted by an Electronic Active Differential (EAD). This technology is designed to enable fine control of power delivery, maximizing traction and limiting the occurrence of wheelspin. Working with the Dynamic Stability Control and ABS systems, this allows you to fully exploit the thrilling performance of the XJR575.
All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) can provide assistance in slippery conditions whether helping to navigate a snowy driveway or park on a slippery incline. This low-speed cruise control operates between 2 and 18 mph, allowing you to concentrate more on steering.
The view from inside the XJ is exceptional: a panoramic, heat-reflective glass roof sweeps back and over the rear seats. It filters UV rays and floods the interior with natural light — making it feel beautifully airy, enviably spacious and thanks to effective tinting, very private.
At the rear, striking taillights with signature ‘J’ LED illuminated running lights and elliptical tailpipes accentuate the power and agility of the XJ.
The rear windshield wraps seamlessly around the XJ to create a floating roofline that emphasizes the long, low and wide profile.
Inside the XJ, the impression of space is accentuated by the panoramic roof and the sweep of hand-crafted veneer that runs around the cabin. The feeling of luxury is punctuated by exciting comfort elements, and phosphor blue lighting creates an elegant finishing touch. So you never just travel in an XJ — you are transported to another place.
The spacious rear cabin of the XJ is crafted to pamper. It can be further enhanced with individual, stowable 10.2-inch HD screens and a center armrest housing multimedia and front and rear seat controls, as well as providing useful storage.
When combined with Jaguar InControl® Touch Pro™, Connected Navigation delivers real-time data on traffic flow, fuel prices, parking services and Live Routing to make sure you reach your destination in good time. You can also view maps in satellite and street-level imagery. The onboard Wi-Fi system creates a permanent in-car Wi-Fi Hotspot allowing passengers to wirelessly connect a range of devices to the internet. All of these advanced services require registration of an InControl Navigation account.
Designed for the XJ by British audio expert Meridian™, two different systems are available in XJ models: the standard Meridian 825W Digital Surround Sound System and the Meridian Reference 1300W Digital Sound System. Both feature advanced technology including Digital Signal Processor (DSP) software — to create superb stereo or surround sound throughout the cabin and optimize every element of the system — as well as Meridian Cabin Correction to dramatically improve the clarity and authentic reproduction of your music.
All models feature central double locking, an alarm and engine immobilizer. Door locks can be controlled either remotely from your key fob, or by using the button on the door handle via the Jaguar Smart Key System™ with Keyless Entry. At night the key fob can also be used to activate the headlights as you approach the car. As an additional security feature, the doors can be set to lock automatically when the car reaches a pre-set speed chosen by the driver.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems help to maintain awareness of your surroundings on the move and reduce stress when parking. 360° Parking Aid is designed to alert you to the proximity of objects around the XJ. For even greater reassurance, the Surround Camera System displays images on the central touchscreen from four cameras positioned around car.
A full complement of airbag supplemental restraint systems is designed to provide protection in certain collision scenarios: Dual front airbags, an airbag in each front seat’s outer seat edges and side-curtain airbags above the side windows. Sensors in the front seats detect the size and weight of the driver and passenger and are designed to direct the front airbags to deploy appropriately. Advanced seatbelt pretensioners automatically tighten the seatbelts when they sense rapid deceleration. In addition, anti-whiplash technology is designed to move the front head restraints forward in certain types of collisions in order to help prevent whiplash-type injuries.
Jaguar InControl® Remote & Protect™ includes SOS Emergency Call and Optimized Roadside Assistance. In the event of a critical situation, your Jaguar vehicle can automatically notify emergency services of your location. Should you contact Jaguar Roadside Assistance, the system can provide your GPS location and relevant diagnostic information.
