Chronology
Predecessor Jaguar XJ (X358)

The Jaguar XJ (X351) is the latest version of the Jaguar XJ luxury saloon from Jaguar Cars. Announced in 2009, and on sale from 2010, the new model features completely new styling combines with underpinnings based on the previous X350 version.

The vehicle is produced at the Castle Bromwich Assembly plant in Birmingham, United Kingdom.[6] In 2014, assembly from complete knockdown kits (CKD) of the XJ would commence in Jaguar Land Rover's facility in Pune, India.[7]

Initial release[edit]

Jaguar invited Jay Leno to unveil the new XJ during the launch at the Saatchi Gallery in London on 9 July 2009.[8] The unveiling was broadcast live on the Jaguar website. The US model was unveiled in 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.[9]

Production of the car was due to begin in September 2009, with first deliveries being made in early 2010.[10] Production later began in March 2010, arriving in dealer showrooms in May 2010.[11][12] At the 2010 Moscow motor show the XJ Sentinel was introduced.[13][14] This is an armoured version of Long Wheelbase XJ with B7-level ballistic protection as well as defence against 15 kg TNT or equivalent explosive. It has the 5.0  L supercharged (510PS) engine from the XJ Supersport and 19-inch wheels with Dunlop Self Supporting Technology Run on Flat tires.[15]

Design[edit]

The XJ was designed at Jaguar Land Rover's Whitley plant in Coventry, by a team led by design director Ian Callum.[16] Design work began in 2005, with final theme approval taking place in November 2006 and the design being frozen in the first half of 2008.[17][18] The new design is a complete break from any earlier XJ, although mechanically the car is a development of the previous version.[19]

Models[edit]

In addition to the standard version with a 3,035 mm (119.5 in) wheelbase, a long-wheelbase version is available with a 3,160 mm (124 in) wheelbase.[8] However, unlike other full-size flagship luxury cars, the long-wheelbase variant was designed first and is expected to make up 67 percent of sales in the United States market.[20]

5.0-litre V8 Petrol Supercharged 510 PS AJ-V8 GEN III 5,000 cc (5.0 L; 310 cu in) V8 supercharged, 92.5 mm × 93 mm (3.64 in × 3.66 in) 510 PS (375 kW; 503 hp) @ 6,000–6,500, 625 N·m (461 lbf·ft) @ 2,500–5,500 4.9 250 km/h (155 mph)

Transmission and speed[edit]

All 2010 models of the Jaguar XJ include standard six-speed automatic transmission with Jaguar Sequential Shift carried over from the previous car, the main change being steering wheel paddles rather than the "J" gate. The car has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.[22][23]

Chassis[edit]

The XJ features a lightweight aluminium floorpan & body (with 50% recycled material content) based on the X350 chassis and retaining a proportion of the earlier floor pan. The biggest change is reversion to steel coil springs for the front suspension, retaining air suspension for the rear only. Continuously variable damping electronically controlled as before but with driver selectable modes.[24] The aluminium alloy uni-body makes the XJL among the lightest of the full-size luxury saloons despite its exterior proportions, weighing in at 4,131 lb (1,874 kg), which is 245 lb (111 kg) lighter than the mid-size/executive BMW 550i.[20]

Equipment[edit]

Driver information and entertainment is provided by a Bowers & Wilkins 1,200-watt, 20-speaker Dolby 7.1 surround-sound system[10] and a bi-directional touch screen display - on which the driver can only see the vehicle functions (and satellite navigation data), but a front passenger can simultaneously view a DVD movie or a television transmission.[24] Standard equipment levels on the United States-spec XJL with the base engine includes a panoramic dual-pane moonroof, lane-departure warning, navigation, quad-zone climate control and power sunshades, which is considered to be generous at this price point compared to other flagship luxury saloons.[20]

Fuel economy and emissions[edit]

The diesel engined version will have a fuel economy of better than 40 miles per imperial gallon (7.1 L/100 km; 33 mpg-US) and a CO
2
emission rating of 184 g/km.[4]

Production[edit]

On 11 May 2010, the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, took delivery of the dark grey (car No. 10) of Jaguar XJ Sentinel as his official transport.[25]

In 2011, David Cameron took the delivery of another XJ Sentinel featuring "bomb proof" doors, bullet proof glass and armoured plating beneath the floor of the car, respectively replacing the previous XJ Sentinel.[26]
