Jaguar began production of this elegant sedan in 1968 when it introduced its XJ6 Series 1 model to its lineup of luxury automobiles. When first introduced, it was powered by either a 2.8L or 4.2L six-cylinder engine. In 1972 Jaguar added the Double Six engine to the XJ stable, now known as the XJ12 series. This 5.3L V12 produced a vigorous 250 BHP, some 70 more than the 4.2L six cylinders and Jaguar had to beef up the front suspension to accommodate the 80lb weight difference between the 6 and 12 cylinder engines. The XJ series has been Jaguars flagship for three and ½ decades with an exciting and invigorating future still ahead of it. Through the years, these fine motorcars have established themselves as a dominant power in a highly competitive market of superior automobiles. Today these cars come equipped with all of the safety and technological enhancements that you would expect when owning a luxury motorcar. There are models for every taste including the awe-inspiring XJR sedan.
The current XJ6 lineup consists of the following:
XJ6 - Six Cylinder
XJ8 - Eight Cylinder
XJ8L - Eight Cylinder Long Wheelbase
XJR - Supercharged V8 (390BHP on the 2004 XJR)
