Performance-Based Powertrains

Depending on which one you choose, you’ll get one of the following engine and drivetrain setups, each of which comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission:

  • 3.0L V6 – The base engine on the Jaguar XJ is a 3.0L V6 that makes 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. It comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but you can also opt for all-wheel drive.
  • Supercharged 5.0L V8 – Offered with rear-wheel drive or the unique Jaguar Instinctive All Wheel Drive® system, the Supercharged 5.0L V8 is capable of producing 470 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque on the Jaguar XJ R-Sport and Portfolio trims, while the Jaguar XJR models get a bump to 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque.

Sophisticated Transmission Controls

The Jaguar XJ comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission that is controlled with the help of a JaguarDrive Selector™ and JaguarDrive Control™ with separate modes for a range of driving conditions, including:

  • Normal Mode
  • Dynamic Mode
  • Rain/Ice/Snow Mode

Intuitive and Responsive Driving Dynamics

The Jaguar XJ is much more than simple specs, though. This opulent luxury sedan also comes equipped with comfort-oriented and sporty driving systems:

  • Adaptive Dynamics – This system is able to monitor and process information about how you’re driving the car—speed, steering, etc.—in order to modify the suspension for maximum stability and comfort.
  • Active Differential – The available active differential is able to recognize wheelspin and adjust the amount of torque being sent to each rear wheel, resulting in optimal traction and cornering control.
  • All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) – This system can assist you in inclement weather conditions, providing you with cruise control at low speeds so that you can place your focus on the required steering.
  • Jaguar Instinctive All Wheel Drive® – Able to monitor current conditions on the road, this system sends out the right amount of torque to deliver optimal balance.
