2013 Jaguar XJ Gets a 3.0L Supercharged V6

The 2013 Jaguar XJ will drop the base 5.0L V8 engine. The V8 engine iwll be replaced with a 3.0L supercharged V6 engine that produces 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Jaguar will replace the current 6-speed transmission with a new ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. The new engine and transmission should improve the XJ's combined mpg.

The new V6 engine will get the XJ from 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds. The suspension on the 2013 XJ has been revised to improve ride comfort. Other changes include the option of a Meridian sound system across all trims, and a redesigned navigation system.

The 2013 Jaguar XJ will go on sale this fall.
