XJ8 4dr Sedan
2005 Jaguar XJ

Jaguar expands its XJ series for 2005 with three long-wheelbase variations: the XJ8 L, the ultra-luxurious Vanden Plas, and the high-performance Super V8. The new models offer enough rear-seat room to recline and watch a movie while having lunch on a flip-down wooden tray, all coddled in rich wood and leather. Though stretched five inches, these longer and roomier Jaguars are just as quick, just as nimble and just as fuel-efficient as the standard-length versions.

Jaguar's flagship, the XJ8 was launched as an all-new model for 2003, along with the high-performance XJR. Both were greatly improved, offering superior ride and handling to their predecessors thanks to their rigid lightweight aluminum structure and computer-controlled double-wishbone suspensions.

Jaguar now has a full selection of all-new XJs, and any one of them represents a great choice among luxury cars. Unlike other cars in this class, the XJ models are not burdened with cumbersome technology. Their considerable sophistication is tucked out of the way, so the driver benefits from technology without being annoyed or distracted by it.

Most important, these big Jaguars offer true luxury. They make a statement when they roll up to an event and their interiors are rich and beautiful, trimmed in leather and wood. They ride wonderfully, are stable at speed and hang onto corners with tenacious grip. They offer quick acceleration and smooth, powerful braking. All of that, and they cost less than their German competitors.
