2018 Jaguar XJ review: Our expert's take


What it is: Jaguar’s flagship sedan, the XJ, has exterior and interior design cues in the style of the XF sedan and is made mainly of aluminum. The long-wheelbase XJL has 5 inches of extra rear legroom. Offered with rear- or all-wheel drive and a supercharged V-6 or V-8, the XJ competes in the full-size luxury class with the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.


A new XJR575 performance model features unique styling cues and a 575-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine.

Exceeded my Expectations!

I was looking for a luxury coupe car, with a unique style. The Jaguar XJ-R Sportster actually exceeded my expectations. Thanks to Trent Cadillac dealership, they were able to put me in this beautiful car... Thanks Trent!
