2011 Jaguar XJ Reviews, Specifications, Prices, what car reviews, The new for 2011 Jaguar XJ was redesigned from the ground up to continue the British brand’s sharper new image, first introduced via the smaller XF model. The XJ is generally available in four trim levels in SWB and LWB versions. The UAE and some other GCC markets will only see the Premium Luxury, Portfolio and SuperSport versions, all in LWB form.

The XJ Premium Luxury and the Portfolio will be available with a 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8. The XJ Portfolio can also be optioned up with a 5.0-litre supercharged V8. The SuperSport comes exclusively with a higher-tuned 5.0-litre supercharged V8. In 2011, a GCC-specific 3.0-litre V6 base model was introduced. All models are rear-wheel-drive mated with 6-speed automatic gearboxes.

Features include an aluminium body, air suspension, “Adaptive Dynamics” continuously-variable damping, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and start, “Active Differential Control” and quick-ratio power steering. Customers can have their choice in colours, veneers and leathers. Inside the car, there is a 12.3-inch LCD with virtual Instruments, Dual-View 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, optional 1200W Bowers & Wilkins system, hard drive and connectivity for portable audio and video devices via a “Media Hub.” Other available features include a panoramic glass roof, power accessories, automatic climate control, electric seats with ventilation, turning headlights and more.

Safety features include front, side and curtain airbags, stability control, ABS, pre-charged braking technology, blind-spot monitoring, tyre pressure monitor and more. The V6 is available in regular or long-wheelbase form, while the V8 is only available in long-wheelbase form, with regular-wheelbase models available upon request.
The XJ’s interior has also been seriously re-worked. Taking little in the way of influence from the smaller XF, the new XJ features a unique, wrap-around dash, complete with plenty of wood and leather accents. A large LCD screen is front and center while rounded air vents give the XJ’s cabin an air of sportiness.

A push button ignition and JaguarDrive Selector gear switch — the same found in the XF — bring the big cat up to speed with 21st century luxury motoring. Optional features include a 1,200-watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system, hard drive-based audio and navigation systems and connectivity for external audio and video devices.

Technical features of the new XJ include an air suspension, Jaguar’s continuously variable damping Adaptive Dynamics system and Active Differential Control.
