Review of the 2001 Jaguar XJ-Series

  • The XJ8 is authentically Jaguar: big outside, small inside, filled with supple leather and lustrous wood, and hopelessly outdated.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Classic exterior styling, classic interior styling and materials, supercharged engine in XKR and Vanden Plas Supercharged.

  • Cons

    Somewhat cramped interior dimensions, sparse feature list, aging platform.

  • What's New for 2001

    Jaguar's premium sedan receives only minor content changes for 2001. The XJ8 and XJ8 L both receive a six-disc CD changer as standard equipment. The Vanden Plas gets a premium sound system with the CD changer as standard, as well as heated front and rear seats. The navigation system is standard on the Vanden Plas Supercharged. For all models, Jaguar has added a new reverse parking control system and strengthened the chassis with new crush tubes, doors, hinges and steering columns. There are also new exterior colors, a new style of wheel for Vanden Plas models and an optional dealer-installed Motorola Timeport digital phone. Topping things off is a new no-cost scheduled maintenance program that covers four regular service visits under the four-year/50,000-mile limited warranty.

Vehicle: 2001 Jaguar XJ-Series XJR 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl S/C 5A)

If you are looking for a car that personifies elegance and style with the power and performance of a sports car, then the 2001 XJR is your ride. With almost 400 horses on my supercharged Jag, it's so much fun watching upstart Mustangs and Maximas recede in my rear view.

The problem XJ series is no more. Since Ford's purchase the quality improvement is amazing. My XJR runs flawlessly and is an awesome four door sports car.
