The Jaguar XJL Supercharged is not the only high end luxury vehicle available. It is, however, one of few that combines the exquisite quality of materials, powerful performance and modern design that it uses. When the vehicle was redesigned it was made in a way that enhanced the performance capabilities that it has to offer. Not only does it look nice driving along the roadway, it also handles perfectly and speeds along with little effort. Those that opt for this version of the Jaguar XJ will find that it not only looks like it will perform well, it actually does.
Those stylish good looks do not stop at the door of the Jaguar XJL Supercharged. In fact, the inside exudes so much modernized class that it will instantly impress. LCD Gauges that are easy to understand and controls that fit more with current times than those in past models all add to the ambiance that is offered in the cabin. Because this is a 'L' model it offers a much more spacious rear seating area than other models even if the cargo space is lacking somewhat. The one area where Jaguar never seems to compromise is the materials that are chosen. Leather and wood show off the elegance expected with a Jag regardless of what model it is.
The Jaguar XJL Supercharged doesn't disappoint in performance because it has an engine that can easily back it up. It also offers handling that is second to none and one of the quietest rides in its class. Most will find that the acceleration, steering and overall performance of this vehicle make it a drive that is as unforgettable as the car itself.
While every Jaguar XJ has a good engine under the hood, the Jaguar XJL Supercharged goes a bit further. The supercharged 5.0 liter 470 horsepower V8 will blow the minds of the driver and the passengers. Paired with a six speed automatic and rear wheel drive, it takes a drive on the road to unleash the fury that sits in this sedan. It takes only four and a half seconds to reach sixty, but it comes at a cost. The fuel economy is a measly 15 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.
