Finely-Crafted Engines

The sleek, athletic curves and floating roofline of the 2017 Jaguar XJ conceal one of two state-of-the-art engines.

Engine options include:

  • 3.0L Supercharged V6: Fitted as standard, the supercharged V6 can command up to 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. With such force under your reins, expect to make it from standstill to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds for a top speed of 121 mph, with efficiency scores reaching a respectable 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
  • 5.0L Supercharged V8: The V8 is available for drivers who want to push beyond expectations. Exquisitely tuned and calibrated, it offers two variations that can produce either 470 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque or 550 hp alongside 502 lb-ft of torque. With the 550-hp variation, you’ll achieve 60 mph in 4.4 seconds for a top speed of 174 mph. Expect up to 15 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

Each engine is paired to a refined 8-speed automatic transmission to deliver seamless gear changes. The controller rises once your Start/Stop button is pressed, and Dynamic Mode allows drivers to modify its shift points for separate weather and road conditions.

Performance Design and Features

As a sports sedan of the highest possible pedigree, the 2017 Jaguar XJ doesn’t cease pushing performance further with the powertrain. Every element of the vehicle has been painstakingly designed and redesigned to create an ideal driving experience, with the body itself utilizing an advanced aluminum monocoque structure for precision driving and ongoing confidence.

Performance features include:

  • Adaptive Dynamics: Your Jaguar XJ will analyze speed, steering, and body movement up to 500 times each second, continuously varying suspension damping rates for improved stability and comfort.
  • Jaguar Instinctive All-Wheel Drive: Available with all supercharged models, this advanced system utilizes active power‑transfer technology to deliver faultless traction and balance across rough terrain or slick roads.
  • All-Surface Progress Control: Provides a low-speed cruise control mode between 2 and 18 mph, perfect for letting you concentrate on steering when the road below is slippery.
