Produced under the Jaguar name, the Jaguar XJ is crafted as a saloon or sedan and was first launched in September of 1968. Trivia has it that this saloon is the last of its kind to still contain Sir William Lyons’, the found of the Jaguar company, input and detail. The XJ designation was given from the car’s code name during its development which actually stood for Experimental Jaguar. Lyons’ himself had advertised this vehicle which he fondly referred to as “the finest Jaguar ever”. That time, it held a 5.3 liter V12 engine.
The present 2006 Jaguar XJ series has been constructed to sport four doors and can take in a maximum of five passengers. It is considered to be under the luxury sedan or luxury sports sedan category. It has also been made available in six trims that ranges from the XJ8 up to the Super V8 Portfolio. This series has been freshened for 2006. The XJ8 is equipped with a standard 4.2 liter V8 engine that could produce 300 horsepower and could achieve 18 mpg in the city and 27 in highway driving. The Super V8 Portfolio, meanwhile, features a standard 4.2 liter V8 engine with 400 horsepower that can speed up to 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
The UK Department of Transport has shown that the Jaguar XJ series are the safest on UK roads.

It is approximately three times safer than the safest Volvo models.
