The new 2017 Jaguar XJ is the ultimate expression of English refinement, exclusivity, and distinction. What’s even more, it comes with an abundance of standard and optional features, strong V8 engine, a chic interior, and a nimble handling and razor-sharp steering. The 2017 Jaguar XJ release date should be expected this fall, if all the media and online frenzy is to be taken seriously.
Jaguar is yet to make public its new slogan for the 2017 model, but if the previous one is the benchmark – “grace, space, and pace” – then the 2017 Jaguar XJ has undoubtedly what it takes to take its segment by storm. Let’s put it in simple terms, the XJ is neither flamboyant as the Italians nor conservative as the Germans.
Thanks to a series of supercharged engines, the XJ offers enviable sporting credentials on a straight-line performance. It comes equipped with a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine that with the help of its output – 340 hp and 332 lbs. ft. of torque – sprints from 0-60 mph in about 4.1 seconds. Buyers have the option of getting the supercharged 5.0L V8 that offers two outputs: 470 hp and 550 horsepower on the XJ Supercharged and the XJR model respectively.
Driving and safety features are available in plenty to help cushion drivers of the electrifying Jaguar XJ 2017. They include a forward collision alert system, active head restraints, stability and traction control, antilock brakes, advanced brake assist, adaptive cruise control, front side airbags, a blind-spot warning system, night-vision capability, high-tech safety enhancements, a heads-up display, and lane-keeping assist.
The 2017 Jaguar XJ interior is elegant as always. Seating on it seats makes you realize just how clinical and austere other high-profile luxury sedans have become. Courtesy of the top-quality leather surfaces, exquisite ambient lighting, and brilliant chrome, this Jaguar has perhaps one of the best cabins we’ve seen so far.
The 2017 Jaguar XJ is offered in both short- and long-wheelbase models. The last of the two comes with massaging functions, cooled and heated seats, and reclining functions. High-tech safety technologies may be lacking relative to its solid rivals, but it more than makes up for them in terms of the luxury and comfort it offers.
Impressive as it seems, the XJ lacks the high-end features and vault-like feel offered by its German rivals. Therefore, you might want to check out the 2017 BMW 7 Series, Audi A8, and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Nevertheless, the 2017 Jaguar XJ is still the king when it comes to timeless appeal as opposed to nifty gadgets.
