2013 model year Jaguar XJ gets a new 335bhp 3.0-litre, supercharged V6 powertrain that replaces the naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8. This new engine will be available also in the 2013 XF and the forthcoming F-TYPE sports car.

The XJ also gets a new eight-speed ZF transmission with Intelligent Stop-Start as standard. Thanks to the new transmission and engine, the new XJ is expected to achieve 47 MPG while emitting 159g/km of CO2, a 14% improvement.

There is also a 271bhp 3.0-litre V6 Diesel S available and a 503bhp supercharged 5.0-litre V8.

Other updates include improved suspension with recalibrated springs and dampers.

Enhancements to the XJ’s interior include a new premium sound system. The top-of-the range 20-speaker 825W system comes as standard on Portfolio and Supersport XJ models while offered as an option on other derivatives.
