2012 jaguar xj-series Reviews and News

2012 Jaguar XJ
2012 Jaguar XJ
The XJ broke with its staid tradition last year and rocked the luxury sedan establishment with its first radical redesign in more than four decades. Jaguar design chief Ian Callum banished virtually all traces of familiarity, including the iconic four round headlights, in favor of unusual cues like blacked-out C-pillars and a blunt snout for a grille. The new styling turns off some but makes a much stronger statement than the old design. The spirit of Sir William Lyons survives inside, where warm leather and generous wood trim soften futuristic bits like the rotary shifter and color screens that replace traditional gauges. The navigation and infotainment system includes HD Radio and satellite radio and features two USB ports. However, it lacks cutting-edge features such as Google Maps and in-car internet. The XJ shares its line of 5.0-liter V-8 engines with the XF. The Supersport tops the range with the supercharged 510-hp V-8 as well as a leather headliner and laser-engraved veneers. It can be purchased only by custom order. The long-wheelbase version adds an extra five inches of legroom and can be had in any trim level. Even with the base engine, the XJ bursts away from stoplights and threads through corners with the agility of a sports car. Much of the credit goes to the relatively light aluminum structure that, Jaguar claims, saves 300 pounds versus conventional steel. But the car has also been tuned in a way that borders on magical, from its precise, almost delicate steering to the perfect ride-and-handling balance achieved by its active dampers.
Jaguar XJ Ultimate Edition Profile
Bob Grace became president of Jaguar Land Rover China in 2010 after a long stint working for Jaguar Land Rover in the U.K. We sat down with him at the Beijing Motor Show to learn more about the company's plans for the Chinese market, and the differences between European and Asian luxury customers. How is working in China different from in Europe? China is rapidly going through a phase of its development that most other counties probably took 20, 30, 40 years to go through. We're seeing a lot of urbanization, a lot of very rapid growth of personal wealth, and we're seeing that at an age profile that is significantly younger than you would see in almost any other developed country around the world. The consumption of luxury cars is by people who are probably ten or 20 years younger than you would see in the States or Western Europe. Does that explain Jaguar Land Rover's recent sales growth in China? Let's be honest with ourselves, every car manufacturer is seeing explosive growth (in China), so it's not a unique phenomenon to Jaguar Land Rover. The (Chinese) market's exploding and we just happened to be in a situation where we caught the tide at the right time. We've grown our dealer network from 40 that we inherited from our former importers (in 2010), and today we've got about 89 dealerships operational. We'll soon reach about 140 retail points across China. How are vehicle tastes different in China? Chinese consumers like long wheelbase models, so you'll see every manufacturer here making long wheelbase derivatives of their products. They particularly like the long wheelbase Jaguar XJ L, and so China is now the biggest market for the XJ worldwide. The Chinese like smaller engines, so we introduced a 2.0-liter petrol engine in the Freelander (the LR2 in the U.S.). We're now launching the 2.0-liter petrol engine into XJ and XF for the first time, again to play to the market trends. Actually, in the XJ market segment, a lot of people don't drive their own car. They sit in the back seat and have a chauffeur. Given that a lot of people prefer to be driven, how do you sell sports cars like the XK and future F-Type? If you look at any sports car brand here in China, the volumes are generally quite modest. But I think if you look at the spurting growth that this country has gone through, sports car are going to catch on. Is it going to be this year, next year, or in the next five years? I'm not sure at the moment. It won't come overnight, but it will come. What can you tell us about the recently announced joint venture between Jaguar Land Rover and Chery Automotive? All I can say is that if you look at our volume growth and our future aspirations, to compete here in China you’ve got to make cars in China. Almost everybody now is assembling sedans and also SUVs in China. I think within the next five to eight years, most car manufacturers will be building a significant number of SUVs here. If you want to maintain a decent market share in a very large market, you have no choice but to put down the infrastructure and build vehicles here in China.
Jaguar XJ Ultimate Front Angle
If the regular Jaguar XJL Supersport simply isn’t exclusive or ‘bespoke’ enough for you, then you’ll be excited to hear of the latest Jaguar flagship, the 2013 Jaguar XJ Ultimate. Ringing the register at a patrician $155,875, the Ultimate is approximately $40,000 more than the XJL Supersport, and $15-20,000 more than other luxury sedans such as the Maserati Quattroporte and Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. However, it is slightly less than a Porsche Panamera Turbo S, and nearly $50,000 less than the V-12-powered S65 AMG.
2012 Jaguar XJ Startech Front Three Quarter
By most accounts, the 2012 Jaguar XJ is one handsome sedan -- In case you missed it, it was winner of our 2011 Design of the Year award. But those wanting a sportier look from the factory are seemingly out of luck, as the XJ is the only Jaguar model that hasn’t received the R-line look-fast goodies. Enter Startech: for the right amount of scratch, the German company can add a little bit of visual flair to the big Jag.
2012 Jaguar XJL Supersport Front Left View
From previous experience, I know the Jaguar XJ to be dynamically astounding, but unfortunately I wasn't able to fully enjoy its performance prowess due to the buckets of rain that fell during my time with the car. These conditions, however, did not prevent me from appreciating the big Jag's lovely interior and abundance of luxury features.
Jaguar XJ With Sport Pack Front Three Quarter
Jaguar will use the Los Angeles auto show to unveil two new options packages for the XJ luxury sedan: the Sport appearance package, and the Speed performance package. The Sport pack is designed to give the Jaguar XJ a more athletic appearance, thanks to sportier body components and a new wheel design. A new front splitter helps reduce lift, and an enlarged trunklid spoiler helps improve high-speed stability. The front grille gets gloss-black mesh, the brake calipers are painted red, and the new 20-inch wheel designs are called “Venom.” “Performance version” seats headline the interior changes; they have larger bolsters and are upholstered in leather. There also are stainless-steel pedals and carbon-fiber trims. XJ models with the 470-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 can be further upgraded with the Speed pack, which raises the car’s top-speed limiter from 155 mph to 174 mph. Along with recalibrating the speed limiter, the Speed pack necessitates reprogramming the digital dashboard display and the tire-pressure monitoring system. Jaguar says the XJ is capable of traveling at such speeds only due to the fact that the Sport package improves the car’s aerodynamic performance. Source: Jaguar
