Jaguar XJ Model Years

Overview

, Automotive Editor -

For most of its life, Jaguar's flagship XJ sedan remained true to its original 1969 styling theme: low-slung body, round tunneled headlamps, split grille and tapered rear deck. It was trimmer and more agile than most luxury sedans, with a cozy interior filled with fine wood and leather.

The XJ's classic personality headed for the exit when Jaguar launched the current model in 2010. It's now a true full-size luxury sedan with swooping lines and an aggressive stance. Whereas old-school XJ's were charming and athletic, the 2013 is imposing and muscular. Some things never change though—like gorgeous interior veneers and leather trim good enough to eat.

After taking the 2010 model year off, the all-new fourth-generation XJ sedan debuted in 2011. Jaguar completely overhauled the XJ's body and cabin, bringing the model up to date with others in its class. The base engine was a 5-liter V8 with 385 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, while the Supercharged and Supersport models featured a 5-liter supercharged V8 with 470 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque, and 510 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque, respectively. A new base 3-liter V6 with 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque joined the lineup in 2013.

Major changes included:

Very few styling cues suggest that the XJ ever changed at all, but the third generation receives a cutting-edge aluminum body and a V8 in every trim. The 2008 refresh brought a new grille and subtle body accents. It is available in XJ8, XJ8L, XJ Vanden Plas, XJR, and XJ Super V8 trims.
