Jaguar has announced details of its 2013 model year generation XJ which will be available from September. This new model is powered by the introduction of a new 3.0 litre supercharged V6 engine. This engine produces 340PS and 450Nm of torque which equates to almost 127 PS which is the highest specific output of any Jaguar engine. A new eight speed automatic transmission with intelligent stop-start technology is introduced for the first time which leads to lower emissions and lower fuel consumption. The new XJ is expected to achieve 47mpg while emitting 159g/km of CO2, a 14% improvement.

Enhancements extend to the XJ’s award-winning cabin with DAB now fitted as standard and a new premium sound system.

The Jaguar XJ continues to be among the best-selling cars in its class, reporting an 11% per cent rise in sales in 2011. Combining advanced construction, luxury and performance, the XJ range has recently expanded to include the new Sport and Speed packs as well as the introduction of the new ‘Ultimate’ model, including a bespoke rear seat environment and unique exterior styling.
