  • Top Speed-255 mph
  • 0-60-6 sec
  • Engine-V6
  • Horsepower @ RPM-340 @ 6500

Jag has historically created some very good-looking cars, and the new XJ continues that tradition with an updated exterior. The new look isn’t a revolution from the old, but rather tweaks a few details to render a fresh appearance.

This includes a revised front fascia with a larger central grille that uses a new mesh pattern, plus a redesigned front bumper sporting new chrome surrounds in the lower air intakes.
