2014 Jaguar XJL AWD 3.0

A bit of British nobility floods the senses when piloting the 2014 Jaguar XJ. It's an emotional rush, a perception based on physical surroundings that influence the mind in much the same manner that a stein of pilsner tastes best when consumed in a German beer garden and no sand is softer than that found on a warm Caribbean beach.

    Burying The Throttle On Germany's Autobahn When an automaker tells us its "performance package" raises a vehicle's top speed from 155 mph to an even more astronomical velocity, we often have to take their word for it – public roads don't allow such madness in the States. But in Germany, where the Autobahn still remains unlimited in some parts, it ...

    The upper end of the Chinese market is all about chauffeured luxury automobiles, and given the prevalent Anglophilia in the Far East, Jaguar would be remised not to jump at the opportunity being seized by so many of its competitors.

    Report: Jaguar to launch all-wheel-drive sedans within two years
    1321893000

    With the X-Type standing as a rare exception, for the entirety of its history, Jaguar has meant rear-wheel drive. Want drive at all four corners?

In fact, a growing number of luxury sedan buyers look for power channeled to all ...

    Jaguar has long been a company of split personalities. On one hand are the luxury sedans that shuttle British cabinet ministers around London and investment bankers to the country club. On the other are the sport coupes that stick it to the world's finest on racing circuits and bar-stools the world over. But those two are getting closer and closer all the ...

Sure, the divisive rear quarters of the sedan have ...

And a big part of those are reportedly coming from Jaguar. Say what you will about the wisdom of decisions taken in Europe's notoriously mind-altering playground, but ...
