Introduction

The Jaguar XJ balances spirited performance with smooth operation and poise. A full-size luxury sedan, the XJ is available in both regular and long-wheelbase variants. Rear-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is available.

Little has changed for the 2015 model year. The 2015 Jaguar XJ lineup has been streamlined, as the Supersport and Ultimate models have been discontinued and engine choices drop from five to three. All 2015 XJ engines are supercharged.

A supercharged V6 comes on Jaguar XJ and Portfolio models. Rated at 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, the V6 gets an EPA fuel economy rating of 18/27 mpg City/Highway with rear-wheel drive, 16/24 mpg with all-wheel drive.

A 5.0-liter supercharged V8 comes on Jaguar XJ Supercharged models that makes 470 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque, and launches from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. Fuel economy is EPA-estimated at 15/23 mpg City/Highway for standard and long-wheelbase lengths.

The Jaguar XJR, which joined the lineup for 2014, is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 rated at 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. The XJR will rocket from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, according to Jaguar. XJR models are available in standard and long-wheelbase variants. Fuel economy for the 2015 XJR is rated by the EPA at 15/23 mpg City/Highway, the same rating as some of the XJ’s less powerful models.

An 8-speed automatic transmission comes on all 2015 Jaguar XJ models.

All XJ models boast an exquisite cabin, with rich leather upholstery and a variety of luxury trims.

Jaguar XJ competes with Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Jaguar XJR competes with Audi S8, less expensive and less powerful, and the BMW 760Li, which offers plenty of power with its twin-turbocharged V12 but is more expensive than the long-wheelbase XJR.

Lineup

The 2015 Jaguar XJ is available in a choice of standard or long-wheelbase (XJL) variants. All come with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Jaguar XJ ($74,200) is powered by the 340-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V6. The XJ comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control with air filtration and humidity control, leather upholstery, 12-way power adjustable front seats with driver memory function, heated front and rear seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel with multifunction controls, power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, cruise control, keyless ignition/entry, burl walnut veneer trim, soft-close doors, 8-inch color touch-screen with navigation and voice recognition, Bluetooth, a 380-watt 14-speaker Meridian audio system with single CD/DVD player, HD radio, satellite radio capability (with three-month subscription), USB port and auxiliary audio jack, panoramic power moonroof, power trunk lid, rain-sensing wipers, automatic stop/start, automatic xenon HID headlamps, heated and auto-dimming sideview mirrors, front and rear parking sensors with rearview camera, blind spot monitor, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

XJ AWD ($77,700) adds all-wheel drive.

XJL Portfolio ($81,200) also uses the 340-hp 3.0-liter V6, but features the longer wheelbase with more rear legroom. Portfolio upgrades to four-zone climate control, stitched and piped leather interior, 14-way heated and ventilated front and rear seats, suede cloth headliner, manual rear side window sunshades, and different 19-inch alloy wheels. XJL Portfolio AWD ($84,700) comes with all-wheel drive and the Portfolio upgrades.

XJ Supercharged ($90,600) and XJL Supercharged ($93,600) are powered by a 470-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V8. Supercharged models also come with an 825-watt 20-speaker Meridian Surround Sound audio system, active noise cancellation, power rear sunshade, and adaptive headlights with automatic high beams.

XJR ($116,000) and XJR LWB ($119,000) use a 550-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V8. XJR models include 14-way power front sport seats with leather upholstery, heating and ventilation; unique R interior trim including black suede cloth headliner; metal pedals; unique exterior trim including a front-bumper splitter; gloss black grille with chrome surround; hood louvers; unique side sills; additional rear spoiler; quad tailpipes; a sports exhaust; upgraded brakes with red calipers; active head restraints; electronic active differential; and unique 20-inch forged alloy wheels.

Several option packages are available for XJ models. The Rear Seat Package ($4,000) for Portfolio and XJL Supercharged sedans includes two individual rear seats, three massage functions, and a folding rear center armrest. A Premium Rear Executive Package ($7,750) for those models includes the two individual seats, rear-seat memory, business trays with leather inserts, rear-seat entertainment with two 10.2-inch LCD screens and two wireless headphones. Visibility Package ($850) for XJ and Portfolio includes adaptive front lighting, cornering lamps, and Intelligent High Beams. Front Seat Comfort Package ($1,400) for XJ includes active-ventilated seat cooling, front passenger-seat memory, 14-way power front seats, and massage function. Portfolio Pack ($4,000) for XJ includes heated/cooled 14-way power front seats, 4-way lumbar support, massage, front-passenger seat memory, heated/cooled rear seats, and four-zone climate control. Sport and Speed Pack ($7,800) for XJ/XJL Supercharged models boosts top track speed to 174 mph, adding 20-inch Venom alloy wheels, red brake calipers, aero front splitter and rear-deck spoiler, and 18-way power front seats with adjustable bolsters. Illumination Package ($1,700) offers blue accent lighting. Also available is a Semi-Aniline Trim Package ($1,775).

Safety features standard on all models include six airbags, front and rear parking sensors, rearview camera, blind-spot monitor, antilock brakes, stability control, traction control, brake assist, electronic brake-force distribution, cornering brake control, engine drag torque control. All-wheel drive is optional.

Walkaround

The Jaguar XJ is a beautiful car. Park it next to a BMW 7 Series, a Lexus LS or a Mercedes makes them look like blocks of cheese. Pull up to a fine hotel or restaurant in a Jaguar XJ and you are arriving in style.

Riding on two lengthy wheelbases of 119.4 inches for the XJ and 124.3 inches for the XJL, with overall lengths of 201.9 inches and 206.8 inches respectively, this large touring sedan out-spans its competitors, while out-styling them in the same swift gesture. It has a sleek shape, with muscular faux-coupe modeling that cunningly understates its size.

The XJ is larger than it looks. With its nose-down, haunches-up lunging stance, it appears at a distance to be a smaller sport coupe. On closer examination, it’s a shock that this is a full-size grand-touring vessel of style, power and great speed.

XJR models are set apart with a special front fascia with R-signature black-mesh grilles, wide chrome-edged air intakes, rocker-panel extensions, a rear lip spoiler, and 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels.

Interior

Jaguar XJ cabins are richly supplied with fragrant leather and handsome inlaid wood trim. They look distinctly upscale.

A 12.3-inch high-definition screen in front of the driver projects a virtual analog speedometer, tachometer and related data in three dial faces. When fuel is low or the car needs to communicate other important information, a bulletin is communicated in the space occupied by the temporarily dimmed tachometer. The font for these central dials, while small, is businesslike and properly legible.

Traditional Jaguar aero-like blower ducts above the center stack flank a handsome analog clock. Beneath these, an 8-inch touchscreen display provides access to navigation, climate control and audio features. There are two USB ports, as well as an auxiliary audio jack, for phones and music players.

The standard audio system on lower trim models is a 380-watt Meridian setup; an upgraded 825-watt system includes a feature called Conversation Assist. It uses microphones in the headliner to pick up occupants’ voices and pipes them through the speakers, making it easier for people to hear one another in the cabin.

Seating and visibility are excellent. The front seats have vast adjustability, and their firmness and side-bolster fit are a model of one-size-fits-nearly-all common sense. Though the beltline of the XJ is relatively high around its occupants, thanks, in part, to generously sized side-view mirrors, outward visibility from the driving position never feels restricted. Long drives in an XJ are an experience to be anticipated with pleasure.

XJR models have sport-style seats, which hug even better around corners.

Rear-seat dwellers ride in the lap of luxury with 39 inches of rear legroom in the standard-wheelbase car, and a vast 44.1 inches in the XJL. Rear seats in the 2015 LWB sedan have individual airline-style seats, which recline and feature three massage programs. Cargo space measures 15.2 cubic feet, enough for plenty of luggage.

Driving Impressions

The Jaguar XJ is a grand touring sedan carefully tailored to make rapid travel effortless, comfortable and pleasing to both driver and passengers. While many large cars make long drives dull, drowsy, and fatiguing, an XJ’s alert and alive character keeps the driver fully engaged in the joy of driving.

The supercharged V6 is a thoroughly qualified full-time, all-season engine that delivers splendid performance. We found throttle response linear and enthusiastic.

All-wheel drive makes the Jaguar XJ AWD a compelling choice for winter driving in the Snow Belt. Our test drives in both dry conditions and Canadian ice and snow found Jaguar’s all-wheel-drive arrangement fully a match for its German competitors.

Each XJ is a harmonious balance of spirited performance, smooth operation, and an indefinable element of poise. XJ throttle response is linear and enthusiastic.

Steering effort and live feel are finely calibrated to deliver an excellent combination of road information and firm controllability. Chassis dynamics are similarly alive, whether driving on snow with all-wheel drive or pressing hard in high summer. Despite considerable weight, the XJ’s brakes are forceful, easily modulated for good control, and even under very hard use show no hint of brake fade.

Jaguar XJs are big cars, and you can’t fool Mother Nature; big cars feel big when you corner fast or brake hard. And when you pounce on the throttle, even with the quick supercharged 340-hp 3.0-liter V6 in our XJL Portfolio AWD, you feel the commotion as the car is pushed from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds.

The XJ uses Jaguar Drive Control, a silver dial that pops up on the center console and serves as the gear shifter. You can set it in Drive and forget it, or you may choose to manually control the superb 8-speed ZF transmission with the paddle shifters. You may also select specialized driving modes that make a dramatic difference in performance. Winter Mode tailors power and traction, optimizing performance for snow and ice. It’s also good for cruising in dry weather to save on fuel.

Dynamic Mode is the other end of the spectrum, raising the threshold for the electronic steering control and allowing more wheel slip for high-performance driving. Jaguar permits switching off stability control altogether, but be careful when doing so. We only switch these systems off on racing circuits when they start slowing the car down.

The XJL Supercharged features a supercharged 5.0-liter engine that produces 470 horsepower. When we opened the throttle, it was like feeling a great ocean liner suddenly rise up. In keeping with Jaguar’s well-balanced philosophy, despite its mass, the car felt surprisingly athletic and controlled while doing so.

In addition to a blazingly fast 550-hp supercharged V8, XJR models are fitted with performance-tuned springs and variable dampers for better body control, as well as big ventilated disc brakes. Jaguar claims the XJR will leap from 0-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds.

Summary

The Jaguar XJ is an elegant full-size luxury car. A wide selection of engines is available, along with a choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Each model delivers plenty of gusto and is luxurious and spacious enough to carry even the most demanding of passengers.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
