2016 Jaguar XJ Revealed to the Public 0

This large Jaguar XJ saloon car with all new body, technology and engine is set to rival the likes of the Mercedes S-Class and the upcoming new releases of the Audi A8 and the BMW 7-Series over the course of 2016.

Redefined Engine

The Jaguar XJ will be powered by a 3.0 2016-Jaguar-XJlitre V6 diesel engine, which is said to release an extra 25 brake horse power compared to the old 3.0 litre diesel engine, but still manages to go from 0-62 miles per hour in 6.2 seconds. The full XJ range includes a 3.0 litre V6 diesel with 295bhp and 215 foot-pounds of torque, a 3.0 litre V6, 335bhp supercharged petrol engine and the 5.0 litre V8, 503bhp to 542bhp supercharged petrol engines. All of these models though will feature an 8-speed automatic transmission for smooth gear changes while driving.

New tech

The all new In Control Touch Pro system is designed to work just like your smart phone, as it allows you to pick and choose what wallpaper you want, you can move all the widgets about to where you would like them to be, and also includes a pinch and zoom feature. This system is going to be based around a 60GB drive, which will mean it should respond to all your needs instantly. The Control Touch Pro system will be controlled from an 8 inch touch screen in the centre of the console, which will be standard in every Jaguar XJ model.

Another cool addition to the Jaguar XJ is the all surface progress control, which when deployed will assist the driver in tricky driving conditions. For example if your driveway is covered in snow, you can set the all surface progress control on and it will assess the situation and set your car to the perfect set up and speed to easily deal with the situation, at least that is the idea.
