2017 Jaguar XJ Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Standard and Long Wheelbase versions are available
  • Supercharged V-6 and V-8 engine options
  • 8-inch InControl Touch Pro Multimedia System comes standard
The 2017 Jaguar XJ is the flagship sedan that has two wheelbase options: the Standard Wheelbase (SWB) and Long Wheelbase (LWB). The LWB version has an extra 5 inches of rear legroom. Other full-size luxury sedans such as the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, Lexus LS 460, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class compete with the XJ.

Three trims are available for the SWB XJ: R-Sport, Supercharged, and XJR.

The LWB XJ also has three trims: the XJL Portfolio, XJL Supercharged, and XJR LWB. 

The XJ has sophisticated, athletic styling with elegant body lines. Its bold, rectangular grille aligns with an equally rectangular lower fascia, forming a moderately proportioned front-end. The headlights are aggressive, while the taillights are quite understated in comparison. Standard features include LED headlights, power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a panoramic moonroof, a power trunk, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and 19-inch alloy wheels. Adaptive headlights, an aggressive front bumper, gloss black exterior accents, a ventilated bonnet, and unique 20-inch alloy wheels are available as well.

Under the Hood
The XJ is powered by a standard 340-hp, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and rear- or all-wheel drive. Other engine options include a 470-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 (XJ and XJL Supercharged) and a 550-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 (XJF).

Inside, the XJ has a luxurious, yet sporty leather interior with a 12.3-inch instrument panel and a 40/20/40 rear seat. The center stack features the Jaguar InControl Touch Pro multimedia system, which includes an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, an app suite, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, a USB port, and a Meridian surround-sound audio system. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, heated/cooled front and rear seats, and a memory seat. Quad-zone automatic climate control, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a rear entertainment system are optional.


All models come with a five-year/60,000-mile warranty that includes free scheduled maintenance and roadside assistance. Standard safety features include a backup camera, front and rear parking sensors, a blindspot monitoring system, and emergency brake assist. Along with standard adaptive suspension, the XJ can be adapted for different road conditions using JaguarDrive Control, which has Winter and Dynamic driving modes. Adaptive cruise control is available as well.
