Is Jaguar’s four-cylinder F-Type a sacrilege? We find out.

  Is Jaguar’s four-cylinder F-Type a sacrilege? We find out. It’s light-footed on the road, still gorgeous and will be easier on your bank accountThis new iteration is getting a feistier version of JLR’s turbocharged, 2.0-litre, inline four-cylinder Ingenium powerplant, nestled under its forward-hinged hood.

For 2018 MY a new Jaguar XJR 575 performance flagship is available, with a number of unique exterior and interior design cues including two unique paint colours created by Special Vehicle Operations.

The Jaguar XJR replacement — the XJR 575 . And, the end result is this tyre destroying limousine, aptly called the 2018 Jaguar XJR 575 , which replaces the outgoing XJR.

Presumably by 2040 we'll all have a detachable steering wheel that can dock in our homes, functioning as a personal assistant when not in use in a car. Think of it as a Siri-connected steering wheel.

BACK 2018 Jaguar XJ – Supercharged Luxury Sedan | Jaguar USA. The Jaguar XJR 575 is the epitome of technology, performance and seductive design — everything Jaguar stands for in the 21st century.

There’s no mistaking how much power Jaguar’s new XJR575 makes. It’s right there in the name, the three digits contained therein declaring the 575 hard-charging horses stuffed under the hood of the Jaguar XJ, the company’s largest sedan. It’s also seemingly everywhere you look: embroidered on four of the five seats, emblazoned on the doorsills, stuck on the trunk, and prominently displayed at the top of the dashboard. In Jaguar’s not-so-subtle branding of this car, it’s as if horsepower is some kind of abstract, intangible idea—something that cannot be seen nor heard nor felt.

But in the XJR575, those workhorses can very much be seen and heard and felt, and the best advertisement of all this power can be found under the driver’s right foot. Squeeze the accelerator to the floor and Jaguar’s big sedan does a convincing impression of the company’s classic Leaper hood ornament, lunging forward and streaking across the landscape. The world beyond the glass blurs, the supercharged V-8 bellows, and the thrust compresses your guts.

Jaguar Land Rover is joining the electrify-everything club

  Jaguar Land Rover is joining the electrify-everything club British automaker Jaguar Land Rover is the next company to make a pledge to electrify everything. The company, owned by India’s Tata Motors, announced Thursday it would start introducing all new cars with an electric powertrain beginning in 2020. That would include the already announced Jaguar I-Pace EV and likely a future Land Rover Defender — proving whether hybrid cars can truly make it in all types of weather conditions.

For the 2018 model year, Jaguar has announced some further technology which will also be available as part of a new range-toping Jaguar XJR 575 . As you would guess from the name, the Jaguar XJR 575 takes the XJR’s supercharged 5.0 litre V8 and adds additional power

A Big Sedan That’s Not so Big

The XJR575 is the latest—and possibly the last—testosterone injection for the eight-year-old XJ. Sharing its supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 with the F-type SVR, the XJR575 gets a 25-horse bump over the XJR it replaces while torque rises 14 lb-ft to 516. Jaguar claims that the XJR575 will run from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, but we’ve seen the 550-hp XJR make the run in as little as 3.8 seconds and expect the 575 to knock a tenth off that time.

What’s even more impressive is how swift this car is on a back road. Even though its exterior dimensions are par for the segment, the XJ’s cabin feels far narrower than those of the Audi A8, BMW 7-series, and Mercedes-Benz S-class. That sense of compactness helps punctuate the feeling of smallness and lightness the driver experiences behind the wheel. Mostly, though, that sensation comes from the XJ’s aluminum-intensive chassis. At about 4350 pounds, the long-wheelbase XJR575 (the only version of the XJR575 that’s coming to the United States) weighs roughly 750 pounds less than BMW’s 600-hp M760i and 700 pounds less than a Mercedes-AMG S63, though both of those models are burdened with the extra weight of all-wheel drive. Still, the XJR575 is no luxury barge. Nimble and lithe, the XJR’s athleticism stands out in contrast with the bank-vault-on-wheels character that’s common in this class of near limos. There’s less float and isolation than you’ll find in most competitors, with well-connected steering, firm but not uncomfortable damping, and tight roll control. And while rear-seat legroom is prodigious, the XJR575 feels like a car designed around the driver rather than the back seat.

New Jaguar XJR 575 has a 186mph top speed and zero-60mph time of 4.4 seconds. Jaguar ’s new XJ range benefits from a range of enhancements, including new tech upgrades and improved safety additions. The all-new Jaguar XJR 575 2018 in pictures.

As a design, Jaguar 's XJ is aging about as well as one could ever hope for. Its slipstream, uncluttered lines have been largely unaltered since 2009, yet it still looks remarkably fresh faced. Coventry's biggest sedan is getting old, though

Feeling Every One of Its Eight Years

Starting at $123,395 when it goes on sale by the end of 2017, the XJR575 will cost just $1400 more than last year’s long-wheelbase 550-horse XJR. It’s distinguished from lesser XJs (which remain available in short and long wheelbases) by two hood vents, a spoiler, unique side sills, and gloss-black exterior trim in place of traditional chrome accents. Twenty-inch gloss-black wheels mount over red brake calipers, and for buyers seeking a six-figure boy racer, a decidedly Subaru-ish hue called Velocity Blue—shown here—can be had for $4080.

The XJ’s interior is upscale and attractive, but it’s nowhere near as opulent or trendsetting as, say, that of an S-class. The interior’s gloss-black plastic trim looks like, well, plastic. Competitors offer whole ecosystems worth of rich woods and genuine metals to choose from. And, for better or worse, the XJ isn’t brimming with technology like an Audi that can steer itself through traffic or a BMW that can be driven into a parking spot from your phone. All XJs get an infotainment upgrade for 2018 with the former 8.0-inch touchscreen growing to a 10.0-inch unit, although that doesn’t enhance the slightly clumsy interface of Jag’s InControl Touch Pro system.

Jaguar Land Rover May Look To Buy Another Luxury Brand

  Jaguar Land Rover May Look To Buy Another Luxury Brand Owner Tata Group has given the British marque full financial support.By the end of March, Jaguar Land Rover had sold a record-breaking 604,009 vehicles around the world, thanks in part to higher demand from regions like the U.S. and China. By June, owner Tata Motors had amassed $6.1 billion in cash and equivalents. So, it seems the British marque is well on track to break its sales record for 2017... and the acquisition of another brand could boost the marque well past one million in sales.

Jaguar has announced a range of enhancements to its XJ luxury sports sedan. The 2018 model year ( 2018 MY) updates include the introduction of the XJR 575 performance flagship model, a host of technology upgrades and the addition of the latest intelligent safety features.

Don’t get us wrong—the XJ is a fine place to spend a day of driving. The quilted leather seats are comfortable for hours at a time, and the cabin is impressively quiet at speed. But the XJ delivers the bare minimum of luxury and tech that is required to play in this segment.

Light on Its Feet

The XJR575 isn’t a status symbol in the way that a 7-series or an S-class is. It also isn’t a sensory deprivation chamber where driving is best left to a chauffeur. When it comes to piloting a big sedan, the XJR575 is as light-footed as they come. It’s a capable long-distance road warrior and a respectable handler on curvy roads. The extra dose of power only makes it that much more adept at blitzing a freeway and blazing a back road.

The Jaguar XJ is Approaching 50. What’s Next? .
As a child growing up in 1970s and 80s, I have fond, vivid memories of spotting Series 2 and Series 3 Jaguar XJs gliding down American roads. And boy were they smooth. My first ride in the gracefully designed British luxury sedan didn’t disappoint. The serene cabin environment and supple ride quality are burned into my brain. Later in life, a friend's mom bought a brand-new X300 XJ in 1994. We'd steal the keys and thrash it. It handled brilliantly and looked cool, even if it was old fashioned and lacking in interior space.A former boss bought the supercharged XJR version of the X308 in early 2003.
