2013 Jaguar XJ V6

Mighty Six Returns To Jag's Flagship On one hand, it wasn't all that long ago that Jaguar was building its flagship luxury sedan, the XJ, with 12 cylinders underhood. If we're being honest, there's always been something sort of magical about cars that play the dozen, even if weight distribution and, indeed, performance, haven't always made them terribly sensible. If we're being equally frank, we've also reacted largely with enthusiasm to the trend of downsized forced-induction engines needling their way into ever larger and more premium sheetmetal. So here we are, at the intersection of... Read More

    Spy Shots: Latest Jaguar XJ snaps show old versus new
    1395235800

    It is a rare day when automakers line up their current models and test cars right next to each other and allow us to compare them directly. However, Jaguar ending up doing just that during cold weather testing of the face lifted XJ, providing the perfect chance to see just what the company is changing. We spotted the refreshed XJ testing last year, and ...

    1384187400

    Europe's flagship luxury sedans don't go through their lifecycles quite as quickly as other models need to, but with the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class hitting the road, Jaguar must feel it's time for a little update for its XJ sedan. And as these spy shots demonstrate, that's just what it has in store. Falling firmly in the subtle-facelift category (as ...

    Spy Shots: 2010 Jaguar XJ shows new sheet metal in Death Valley
    1248130680

    We've already seen the 2010 Jaguar XJ in the sheet metal – once during our hands on introduction, and shortly followed by its online premier and a brief jaunt around London. Now, the intrepid shooters from KGP have caught both a prototype and a near production version weathering the summer sun in Death Valley, and we're still evenly split on its ...

    A Jaguar XJ mule was trapped on a ferry from Dover and became the unwitting subject of a thorough photo shoot. However, the new flagship sedan from Jag was protected by so much cladding that there isn't much we can glean from the shots except these three things: it has a beautifully crafted, nicely dished three-spoke steering wheel; the Jaguar Drive is ...

    Spy Shots: Next-gen Jaguar XJ... No, really!
    1242322200

    BMW is known for wrapping its prototypes in funkadelic patterns to obscure new design details. And, seeing as the car above is sporting a split-kidney grille, you would think that you're staring at a BMW prototype of some sort. Maybe the next-next-gen 7 Series or something. Well, that's what they want you to think. "They" in this scenario are engineers ...

    With the new XF garnering all the attention, a new 510 horsepower XKR ripping up the streets and a new sportscar – of some sort or another – reportedly on the way, it'd be all too easy to forget about Jaguar's flagship XJ sedan. The range-topper still carries the same basic retro styling theme as it has since before Ford took over, but now that ...

    Spy shots: next Jaguar XJ caught at, where else, the Nurburgring

    Since you can't even really call it a car anymore if it hasn't been blasted around the 'Ring in development, Jaguar has taken the mechanicals of the next XJ sedan to everyone's favorite playground. Those internals wear the ill-fitting sheetmetal of the current XJ, with the addition of serious wheel arches and a fire-breathing nose.The real thing to take ...

    Spy Shots: 2010 Jaguar XJ interior, look familiar?
    1211921940

    Proving that Jaguar is truly serious about dumping its staid, old man-ish image is a lone spy shot of the upcoming redesigned XJ sedan's new interior. True, Jag's bread-and-butter sedan has not seen much in the way of changes since... well, never, but we weren't sure just how far Jaguar management was willing to go for its interior redesign. As it turns ...

    If you thought the new Jaguar XF was a radical departure, hold on to your cap, because if reports coming in are to be believed, the replacement for the flagship XJ sedan could be even more revolutionary for the traditionally staid British luxury marque. Granted, you can't tell much from these spy shots. They were snapped while a mechanical prototype was ...

    The next generation Jaguar XJ has been spotted by Car magazine photographers, though you might not guess it: the car is a test mule using the current XJ's body. Car's claims for the car, however, predict an XJ that will be make a much greater impression than the one the current XJ made when it was released a few years ago.For one, the styling is expected to ...

    Opinions may be split over the execution of the new Jaguar XF that was priced for U.S. consumption yesterday at the LA Auto Show, but the British luxury marque remains committed to its new design direction. That is, at least, what our friends across the pond at Auto Express are saying, and they may not be far off.The XJ sedan, though arguably a timeless ...

    With the BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class getting mixed reviews on their quirky styling, the Jaguar XJ sedan remains one of the most elegant luxury sedans on the market. Not to rest on its laurels, though, Jaguar is apparently preparing a mild face-lift of its range-topping sedan. The subtle update appears to be purely cosmetic. From the spy shots we ...
