ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

The modern Jaguar XJ luxury sedan is beautiful. Handsome. Gorgeous. Futuristic. Head-turning. It also now costs about as much as a Chevy Impala.

Here's the situation: The current Jaguar XJ luxury sedan first debuted for the 2011 model year, when it turned heads for finally looking completely different from every other Jaguar luxury sedan before it. It also had this blue interior lighting that made you feel really cool, even if you were just the guy at the Jaguar dealer whose job was to drive them off the delivery truck.

Of course, back in 2011 the XJ was pretty expensive: Its original MSRP was somewhere between $73,500 and $114,000, depending on how much Jaguar you wanted. You want a normal amount of Jaguar? $75,000. You want a Jaguar that the valet will park in front after he drifted it around the hotel parking garage? $100,000-plus.

Well, these days, things have changed: 2011 was 5 years ago. We are all older and wiser, and that valet is now your stockbroker -- and the 2011 XJ now costs the same as a Chevy Impala.

I'm serious: The average price for a 2011 XJ on Autotrader is a mere $32,500, which places it right in the heart of brand-new Impala LT territory. Given that the 2011 XJ still retains mostly the same body style as the current model, you can spend $32,500 and have passersby think you're actually some sort of industrial tycoon whose driver has the day off.

Of course, most used luxury cars will start becoming expensive to maintain once they reach the 5-year-old mark, so you may want to consider a warranty to go along with your 2011 XJ. Or befriending a Jaguar mechanic. Or becoming a Jaguar mechanic yourself. This is a highly rewarding career path, because you get to feel really cool for a second when you drive the new models off the truck.
