Benefits of Driving a 2012 Jaguar XJ Sedan

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.

What's new for 2012?

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.

Model Strengths

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

Model Review

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.
