2014 Jaguar XJL A Luxury Inside and Out

Posted on February 3, 2014

The XJL is powered by a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 generating 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. Its helpmate is a swift and sure eight-speed automatic transmission. Don't think a V6 in this mammoth sedan weighing 4,141 pounds means it's underpowered. The driving experience proves otherwise.

Quickness is no surprise in a Jaguar, but the XJL's handling is remarkable because it behaves like a much smaller sedan, even on twisty roads.

All-wheel drive is the third feature in the XJL's performance trifecta. It's a desirable addition that considerably improves snow-worthiness over the XJ's usual rear drive. AWD is also a boon when roads are wet with rain.
