2016 Jaguar XJR

The 2016 Jaguar XJ, a five-passenger sedan that’s available in regular or long-wheelbase body styles, comes right on the heels of the Audi RS7 when ordered in its top trim level, the XJR. This model makes a very competitive 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque.

Those figures are possible courtesy of Jaguar’s supercharged 5.0-liter V8, which critics describe in glowing terms. The XJR, they say, accelerates effortlessly, aided along by its smooth eight-speed automatic transmission, regardless of whether the car is stuck in stop-and-go traffic or cruising along the highway. Several critics have noted that the Jaguar XJR’s brakes are especially strong. The Jaguar XJ lineup features extensive use of aluminum in its construction, resulting in a very light weight for a car of its size and enabling particularly athletic handling. Rear-wheel drive is standard in the 2016 Jaguar XJR.
