What You Will Like

The Jaguar XJ has always been a premium symbol of ultimate automotive luxury. Prices start at under $75,000, but that buys a smooth, powerful drivetrain as well as a specific kind of comfort and elegant, understated style. All of which is emblematic of the XJ in a way not found in a BMW, Audi or Cadillac.

Loading Comparison...


The Jaguar XJ has presence and exudes pure luxury, often making a more elegant entrance than one of its German competitors presents. An elegant, comfortable cabin, strong performance, responsive handling and a luxurious ride add to the appeal of this luxury sedan.

Echoing the British tradition of carrying on without complaint, stiff upper lip and all that, Jaguar’s flagship sedan continues into the 2017 model year with little change apart from body color choices.

Exuding pure elegance inside as well as out, the full-size XJ is lavishly equipped even in base form. Few luxury sedans approach its comfort and posh amenities, though comparable German models offer broader customization possibilities.

Abundant use of aluminum construction translates to a more nimble driving experience. Jaguar offers the XJ in regular- and long-wheelbase configurations, with V6 or V8 power. Only V6 models can have all-wheel drive, as an alternative to the standard rear-drive.

Beneath the bonnet of XJ R-Sport models and the XJL Portfolio is a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 makes 340 horsepower, mating with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

XJ Supercharged models contain a 5.0-liter V8 that produces 470 horsepower, also driving an 8-speed automatic. Topping the performance spectrum, the XJR gets a 550-horsepower rendition of the 5.0-liter V8.

Acceleration to 60 mph takes 5.7 seconds with the V6 engine, 4.9 with the Supercharged V8, and a mere 4.4 seconds with the XJR’s V8. Impressive figures indeed, for a heavy full-size four-door.

JaguarDrive Control offers winter and dynamic modes. A 12.3-inch instrument cluster is standard, while the 8.0-inch infotainment display works with an 825-watt, 20-speaker Meridian audio system.

Jaguar’s touchscreen navigation system provides 60 GB of file storage, for swifter access to menus and maps. InControl Remote, a smartphone app, can preheat or cool the cabin, start the engine remotely, or alert the owner if something triggers the alarm.

Safety features include a rearview camera and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and closing vehicle sensing. Front and rear parking assistance is included. Adaptive cruise control is optional, and a surround-view camera is available.


The Jaguar XJ R-Sport ($74,400) comes with a V6, rear-wheel drive and the regular wheelbase, along with dual-zone climate control, 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, pushbutton start, Bluetooth, panoramic sunroof, leather heated and ventilated front and rear seats, and soft-closing doors. R-Sport AWD ($77,900) has all-wheel drive. (Prices do not include $995 destination charge.)

XJL Portfolio ($83,200) is the long-wheelbase equivalent of the R-Sport, adding such features as four-zone automatic climate control, 14-way power front seats with massaging, and an electric rear-window sunblind. XJL Portfolio AWD ($86,700) is all-wheel drive.

XJ Supercharged V8 ($92,000) has the 470-horsepower V8 and rear-wheel drive. Also standard are 20-inch wheels, softer leather, an active rear differential, and a rear-window sunblind. XJ LWB Supercharged V8 ($95,000) is the long-wheelbase version.

XJR Supercharged V8 ($118,000) upgrades to the 550-horsepower V8, plus a sport-tuned suspension, a more assertive hood, and a rear spoiler. XJR LWB ($121,000) rides the longer wheelbase.


Not many sedans come close to matching, much less exceeding, the stunningly shaped XJ body, highlighted by blacked-out pillars that magnify the sense of expansive glass. Still a visual sensation after eight seasons in its current form, the XJ earned a fresh front end for the 2015 model year. Few would deny that the modern-day XJ has aged mighty well.

Classy from stem to stern, the XJ has spurred design details of the company’s smaller, more recent models. Big headlights flank the bold wire-mesh grille. Fenders complement the low roofline, suggesting French designs of the past.


The lavishly appointed XJ is immersed in genuine wood veneers, supple, semi-aniline leather, and bountiful chrome.

Forming a wide arc, the dashboard expertly blends wooden panels and leather. Actual buttons supplement the video screen, which can sometimes be slow to react. In addition to controlling audio and climate, as well as navigation functions, the 8.0-inch LCD touchscreen can show performance driving modes. Naturally, fit and finish rank as superior.

For such a large car, the back seats are relatively snug, with a headroom shortage resulting from the XJ’s shapely roofline. Three passengers in the back won’t fit so easily, two is better. Rear-seat legroom is fine; and it’s significantly better in long-wheelbase versions, which add nearly 5 inches of space.

With a capacity of 18.4 cubic feet, the trunk can hold plenty of cargo.

Driving Impressions

The V6 engine in the XJ R-Sport and Portfolio is smoothly efficient, and performance is almost as brisk as that of the more costly 470-horsepower Supercharged V8. Generous sound insulation tones down any harsh vibrations emanating from the V6.

Higher-performance V8 models are more spirited, tautly athletic, but a moderate penalty is paid in ride quality. In V8 models, an active rear differential helps traction. XJR editions get a stiffer suspension, as well as some aerodynamic body elements.

Controlled by a rotary knob rather than a lever, Jaguar’s 8-speed automatic shifts promptly and smoothly. Dialing Sport mode permits the transmission to retain gears longer and keep engine speed higher. Dynamic mode controls suspension and throttle activity.

Overall, the XJ operates quite predictably and simply. Yielding a smooth ride most of the time, it exudes refinement. Yet, Jaguar’s big sedan can become more raucous when such behavior seems appropriate, especially the XJR. Lightweight construction helps the XJ edge ahead of rivals, in terms of masterful handling.

Adaptive damping helps the XJ ease through minor pavement trouble spots without impairing the pleasure of the ride. Ventilated disc brakes provide a good pedal feel, and include brake drying.

All-wheel drive helps V6 sedans maintain sure-footed traction on wet or icy pavement. Snow mode gives the system a bias toward front wheels, while starting off in second gear.

V6 models manage respectable fuel economy compared to full-size rivals, EPA-rated at 18/27 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers each figure by 1 mpg. An XJ with V8 power is EPA-rated at 15/23 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined. Automatic start/stop operation is barely noticeable.


The Jaguar XJ delivers style, presence and heritage. Passengers are coddled in supreme luxury, in a cabin that’s almost as visually striking as the body. Add energetic performance and engaging handling, and despite its price, the long-lived XJ still proves difficult to resist.

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 Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

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.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

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.


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.
