Jaguar XJ

Carmaker Jaguar revealed different detail on their new 2013 model year generation XJ. This model is actually the result of a lot of hard work based on research and development programme having as goal, the improving of efficiency. This comes aside with comfort and functional technologies. Thanks to the engine and dynamic development, the new transmission and the advanced technologies, the new Jaguar is now more efficient and refined. All the output developed by the engine is being transferred to the wheels through an 8-speed ZF transmission that features as standard the Intelligent Stop-Start system offered to lower the fuel consumption and the CO2 emission level.

Under the hood it hides a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 power-train capable of developing 340 PS and 450 Nm of torque. This engine will offers power to the future F-TYPE sports car that will be available starting next year. To handle the extra horses, the carmaker improved the suspension and all models in the lineup have a re-calibrated spring and damper tunes and remapped damper software. Inside the cabin, the new Jaguar XJ features a new 825W premium sound system that comes as standard on Portfolio and Supersport XJ models. It also comes as an option on other derivatives. Last year, the Jaguar XJ was the best-selling car in its class. This is a model that combines advanced construction, performance and luxury in a very harmonious way. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. The XJ range was expanded and so now it includes the new Sport and Speed packs, but also the Ultimate model that feature a unique exterior styling and bespoke rear seat environment.
