Today we’ll give a complete summary of our fun week with the XJ Supercharged.
The all-new 2011 Jaguar XJ Supercharged is a car that when you see it coming, will make you take a second and maybe a very long look. The XJ is one of those cars that comes along and sets the bar even higher in the luxury class of automobiles. It has everything you would want in a full-size performance sedan. It’s sleek, fast and sexy just like the cat it’s named after.
From a company with such a long tradition of producing sporty, stylish automobiles, the 2011 Jaguar XJ Supercharged is a continuation of that legacy of fine luxury sporting cars. This XJ is new from top to bottom, sharing nothing more with the previous generation model than the name, an occasional piece of hardware, or a seatbelt buckle.
This is where the XJ Supercharged moves way ahead of anything that Jaguar has come up with in the past. The XJ represents a new direction for Jaguar and will now begin to make a challenge in the performance luxury class of automobiles so long dominated by the Germans. There are only a certain number of buyers looking to purchase a Mercedes-Benz S-Class or a BMW 7 Series. But the XJ will be a car that Denver luxury shoppers will want to look at with its class-leading style, performance, and long list of features.
The 2011 Jaguar XJ Supercharged expands on what Jaguar has done with the mid-sized XF by giving it a new sleeker, sportier look with style. They did it by giving the XJ lots of glass, small side pillars and a roofline that seemingly blends right into the trunk.
The XJ is Jaguars flagship for the brand and it lives up to the name with an interior filled with fine leather and wood. It is luxurious, sporty, and stylish all together in one fine package. Even the least expensive XJ gets regular leather, mere heated and cooled front seats, and dual-zone climate control. The Supercharged model adds piped leather upholstery and comparably trimmed floor mats, massage front seats with 20-way adjustment and four-zone climate control.
When you turn the rotary gear shift to Drive, and stomp on the gas, the driver is pushed back into the seat and feels their heart begin to race. The quiet tranquil cabin is filled with the seductive roar as the supercharged V8 sends the new XJ from zero to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. And the cars behind you will be left admiring the shapely tail end and see the cat like taillights pull away in the distance.
The 2011 Jaguar XJ Supercharged offers everything Denver buyers expect in a luxury sedan, with luxury, amenities, quiet, and power, with a sporty side for the more adventurous. With an aesthetically pleasing design and a rich contemporary cabin, the XJ conveys a sense of style that will challenge the German competitors. All this comes at a price that undercuts the competitors by thousands.
