About Jaguar XJ

Now in its fourth generation, the 2017 Jaguar XJ is an elegant and opulent full-size luxury sedan with supercharged V6 and V8 engines packing as much as 550 horsepower. Available with rear- or all-wheel drive (RWD, AWD), Jaguar’s flagship offers high levels of comfort and technology, including an all-aluminum body and structure to save weight. Last year Jaguar revamped its infotainment system with an improved touch screen and faster response. It also gave the XJ’s styling a mild but meaningful refresh, with new headlights and a revised grille. Thankfully the sedan’s unique black C-pillars and floating roof remain. The XJ is available in long- and short-wheelbase body styles and it’s a real alternative to the BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Prices start around $75,000.

"I'VE HAVE OWNED MY JAG FOR ALMOST A YEAR AND ALTHOUGH I DO NOT DRIVE IT EVERYDAY, WHEN I DO ITS LIKE FALLING IN LOVE WITH IT ALL OVER AGAIN. I'VE OWNED LEXUS AND BMW AND THE JAG IS ON A WHOLE OTHER LEVEL AS FAR AS DRIVING DYNAMICS. AS ANOTHER REVIEWER STATED, THE EXHAUST SOUND IS MUSIC TO MY EARS, AS NICE AS THE SOUND SYSTEM IS, I TURN IT DOWN JUST TO HEAR IT COME ALIVE."

"The only con I have is the book value on 0-60 It will do under 4.0. Two of the car mags tested the 470 hp and hit a flat 4.0. the 510hp will do 3.9 or less. Its at 35,000 miles and runs better over 25,000 then under. The summer of 2015 I ran from Springfield Ill to Gettysburg. The performance was remarkable. I was tempted to go all the way to NYC. They say other cars are better, well I don't know how. The interior is better then anything I have ever seen and as for speed, I don't see the back of any cars. As for problem with electric- I have never had a battery problem. I would love to know how many of the XJSS there is in America. I have been told very few."
