2018 Jaguar XJ Model Overview

About the 2018 Jaguar XJ

Luxuriously appointed and technologically advanced, the 2018 Jaguar XJ represents the pinnacle of Jaguar sports sedans. Choose between the sport-tuned XJ, engineered with high performance in mind, or the XJL where quilted seats and an available rear seat entertainment system prove decadence can be extremely tasteful.

What the Critics Say

“Interior design is a strong suit for all XJ models. Housing jet-like air vents and a 12.3-in thin film transistor (TFT) instrument panel, the low-set dashboard is a refreshing departure from those of other luxury sedans. Jaguar’s distinctive rotary gearshift knob looks slick as it rises out of the center console when the driver fires up the ignition.” – Autotrader

“The capable, luxurious XJ has graceful, nimble handling and a supple, steady ride. Its 470-hp V8 makes the big sedan very quick, but most versions have the supercharged V6 with all-wheel drive. The plush, quiet interior is crafted with genuine wood trim, copious amounts of leather, and abundant chrome details.” – Consumer Reports

What’s New for 2018

For 2018, an all-new XJR575 performance variant of the Jaguar XJ makes its debut. The “575” stands for 575 horsepower on this ultimate performance trim level. Jaguar InControl Touch Pro has been revised and improved for greater responsiveness and includes 4G WiFi connectivity. A new 10-inch touchscreen display is now offered along with several new driver-assistive safety features.
