5 reasons to buy the 2014 Jaguar XJ

1. Two supercharged engine options 

If it’s power you crave, you can’t go wrong with the 2014 Jaguar XJ. XJ base and XJL Portfolio trims have a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine that makes 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Want even more power? XJ and XJL Supercharged models have a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine that produces a whopping 470 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque. With the V8 engine, the Jaguar XJ can go from zero to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new). Both engine options are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is available on V6 models for improved traction in ice and snow. 

2. Nimble handling 

The 2014 Jaguar XJ may be a full-size luxury sedan, but it’s lighter than it looks. The XJ’s lightweight aluminum body and sophisticated suspension offer superior agility and handling for a premium driving experience. You’ll love the gracious road manners, and your passengers will appreciate the supple and refined ride. Plus, you can drive the XJ just the way you like it, with driver-selectable settings for the engine, transmission, and suspension. Get ready to experience true exhilaration behind the wheel. 

3. Exquisite interior 

If you’re looking for a luxurious experience, the 2014 Jaguar XJ doesn’t disappoint. Feast your eyes on the gleaming chrome instruments and leather-wrapped instrument panel, all bathed in soft blue light. Dash and door surfaces are soft to the touch, and luxurious leather is complemented by twin-needle stitching on the supple seats. The panoramic glass roof extends to the full width of the car, enhancing the cabin’s sense of light and space. With a wide range of interior trim options—including 11 different kinds of premium wood—you’re sure to find an XJ model you love. 

4. Available massage seats 

Tired of feeling stiff and sore after a long car ride? The Jaguar XJ has available massage seating for the ultimate comfort on every journey. For 2014, the XJ’s available front-seat massage functioning has been enhanced with five settings—lumbar, shoulder, upward, downward, and rolling—and five intensity levels to suit your preferences. Your rear passengers can also enjoy available reclining seats with three massage settings. All seats are heated as standard for a truly premium experience. 

5. Three premium audio system options 

If you’re seeking a high-end audio experience, don’t miss the 2014 Jaguar XJ. XJ base and XJL Portfolio trims have a standard 14-speaker Meridian™ audio system, and Supercharged models have a standard 20-speaker Meridian surround sound system with cabin correction and dynamic volume control. New for the 2014 model year is an impressive 26-speaker Meridian audio system that offers every passenger a personal soundstage experience (available on XJL trims). This top-tier sound system includes microphones above each seat to channel passengers’ voices through the speakers and mix music and speech volume accordingly.
