2015 Jaguar XJ Series What's new for 2015? 
2015 Jaguar XJ Series

After revisions last year that included a new XJR model and the elimination of the naturally-aspirated V8, there's not a lot of change for the 2015 Jaguar XJ, and the model carries over virtually unchanged.

For 2014, the normally aspirated V8 is dropped from the lineup and a new high-performance XJR trim replaces last year's Supersport, offering more power and luxury features. The XJ LWB model receives the ultimate in sound systems, a 1,300-watt Meridian Reference Audio unit with no fewer than 26 speakers.

The big news for 2013 is the addition of a more fuel-efficient V6 engine at the base of the line and the option of an advanced AWD system to go with it. There are also new audio systems from Meridian.

For 2012, Supersport trims receive various content revisions, including a standard rear-seat DVD entertainment system in place of standard adaptive cruise control as well as a new reclining rear seat with a nifty massaging feature for the XJL Supersport.

The 2011 Jaguar XJ is so thoroughly new that it's unrecognizable as a descendant of the previous generation - inside, outside and underneath.

For 2009, Jaguar has created a limited production (only 140 cars in the U.S.) Super V8 Portfolio featuring 20-inch wheels, unique black or gold paint and the highest level of standard equipment ever offered in a XJ. Changes to the base XJ8 and XJ8 L include the addition of DVD-based navigation, Alpine Premium audio, Front Park Control and a stitched and tailored dash top.

About Jaguar XJ Series

Jaguar's distinctiveness in a market dominated by German brands has always been one of its strongest selling points. After all, there's nothing on the road that looks like the 2015 Jaguar XJ, not the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 or Lexus LS. That exclusivity continues inside, with an interior that equals its German and Japanese rivals in comfort, features and convenience, but without copying any of them. It used to be that Jaguar's style and luxury came with the bitter pill of poor reliability and quality. However, in recent years Jaguar has narrowed the gap with its rivals, even if it hasn't closed it completely. With short- and long-wheelbase models, and even a high-performance XJR model, this big Jag is a contender.

Standard equipment is all inclusive including blind spot tech,Meridian surround sound electronics, GPS navigation., digital displays etc. Beautiful design and execution. Remember, this is the Jaguar flagship and reflects the accomodations that an English gentleman would expect."
