Performance of 2017 Jaguar XJ
When it comes to performance, the 2017 Jaguar XJ has it in spades and ensures that you will have a great time when you are driving this vehicle. The new XJ sedan is a rear-wheel drive vehicle that comes with a wide variety of engines, advanced technological features, and one powerful transmission.
Thanks to its aluminum monocoque construction, this luxury sedan has an outstanding rigidity that makes the ride of this sedan very confident. It is also due to this structure that the new XJ sedan has better fuel efficiency along with superior performance.
At the time of purchase that 2017 Jaguar XJ comes with options between two very dynamic and powerful engine options that are designed to bring outstanding performance and handling. These engines are supercharged for a better performance at all times.
The engine options are:
One of the engines available is a 3.0-litre Supercharged V6 engine that can generate 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. The engine is designed in a way to offer immediate response, especially when the sedan is being driven at slow speeds.
With this engine, this sedan has the top speed of 155mph and it can go from 0 to 60mph in just 5.7 seconds. However, when this sedan is purchased with an all-wheel drive, it can go from 0 to 60mph in just 6.1 seconds.
The second engine option is that of the much more powerful 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged engine. This bigger engine is capable of generating 470 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, the 2017 Jaguar XJ can go from 0 to 60mph in just 4.9 seconds, which is very impressive.
Both of the engines are paired with an equally powerful 8-speed automatic transmission that ensures that you have the perfect ride at all times. The addition of Adaptive Driving Dynamics further enhances the performance, as this feature analyzes the speed, steering, and body movement of the sedan up to 500 times a second and then modifies the suspension of the sedan to increase the stability of the vehicle according to the road and the conditions.

The cabin is very sporty, yet at the same time, it is welcoming for everyone. The addition of technologically advanced features is subtle and not overwhelming at all. At the time of the purchase, the owner of this vehicle will have the choice of multiple finishes, colors, and materials for the interior.
To make the interior stand out, the designers at Jaguar have ensured that it is now more spacious than ever before. All over the cabin, you will find hand-crafted veneers and plenty of comfort and convenience elements that make this sedan even more attractive.
The ambiance of the cabin is enhanced with the addition of phosphor blue lighting that illuminates out of the center console and the dashboard. This splash of color makes the black interior look even better and pretty. The addition of heat-reflective panoramic roof ensures that you can enjoy the good weather outside without any issues.
Unlike the previous model, the rear seats are ergonomically designed and are very spacious to bring a more luxurious feel. The headrests of these seats are embossed with the Jaguar leaper, the seats have twin-needle stitching adds a contrasted burst of color and the comfort level of the seats ensure that the driver and the passengers are enjoying the ride at all times.
All of the seats in the new 2017 Jaguar XJ come with heating and cooling function so that all the passengers and the driver of the vehicle are comfortable and not just the driver and the front passenger.
The 2017 Jaguar XJ has a very powerful exterior that looks very athletic and agile. This is due to the low and wide stance of the sedan that complements the long taut waistline. The sculpted hood at the front and the elegantly refined lines at the sides of the vehicle give this sedan the perfect Jaguar look, yet at the same time, it adds to the luxurious appeal of the sedan.
The design of the 2017 Jaguar XJ is often called dramatic, dynamics and free from any flaws. The stunning looks of the sedan are a sight to behold, especially when it is motion, but it still appears ready to charge down the road even when it is standing still.
Jaguar and its designers are calling the new XJ sedan “intelligence in motion” due to its design elements that make the vehicle brilliant. At the front of the vehicle, we have the big, Jaguar grille that sits proudly at the center of the vehicle and looks very imposing. This grille is framed by strong LED headlights that look really good, thanks to the illuminated “double J” design.
At the rear of the sedan, we have the same striking and signature “J” LED running taillights that are complemented by the elliptical tailpipes that add to the agility and power of the sedan. The floating roofline design of the vehicle adds to the long, low and wide profile of the sedan and blends in flawlessly with the overall look of the vehicle.
