year at the 2011 Montreal International Auto Show. This stunning lineup

delivering a superb balance of high performance, dynamic ability and
refinement. The 2011 XJ, XF and XK will be on display for press review

All-new XJ for 2011
The flagship sedan range blends the sleek lines of Jaguar's new design
language with the brand's latest generation engines and chassis
systems. Six XJ model variants include standard and long-wheelbase
(XJL) versions, the latter adding five inches of rear legroom and
additional luxury amenities. The new XJ is the most powerful and
luxurious in Jaguar's history, with an interior that offers the latest
infotainment technology and a wide choice of leather and wood finishes.
The range-topping XJ Supersport and XJL Supersport are available by
special order only.
The model range includes the XJ with a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8,
the XJ Supercharged with a 470 hp supercharged version of the engine,
and the limited-production XJ Supersport powered by a 510 hp
supercharged version. An XJ Supersport can accelerate from 0-100 km/h
in just 5.0 seconds.
All 2011 XJ models are powered by variants of the AJ-V8 Gen III
5.0-liter V8 first introduced on the 2010 XF and XK models. The
all-aluminum four-cam Jaguar V8 engines combine high power with high
efficiency, thanks to such technologies as spray-guided direct fuel
injection and dual independent variable cam timing, plus a variable
inlet manifold on the naturally aspirated engine. On the XJ
Supercharged and Supersport models, a twin vortex system (TVS)
supercharger and twin water-cooled intercoolers are efficiently
packaged in the engine's V.
XJ Supercharged: $104,000
XJL Supercharged: $107,000
XJ Supersport: $128,000
XJL Supersport: $131,000
The 2011 XK combines Jaguar's legendary performance with advanced
technologies and sporting luxury to create a grand tourer with the
heart and soul of a sports car. XK is available in Coupe or Convertible
bodystyles, and with a choice of two engines; the 5.0-liter naturally
aspirated V8 or exhilarating 510 hp supercharged engine. Also available
to commemorate the brand's 75th anniversary is the XKR175 75th Anniversary Coupe.
The XK's assertive lines reflect the heightened performance delivered by
powerful and efficient engines. The sculpted nose features a dramatic
front bumper design with chrome details air intakes, heightening the
look of power and performance. This is the beauty of a car that so
effortlessly fulfills the dual roles of sophisticated, luxurious Grand
Tourer and exhilarating, dynamic sports car.
With an interior rich in craftsmanship, style and technical innovation,
the 2011 XK takes the sports car experience to a whole new level. The
traditional gear lever has been replaced with a sleek, space-efficient
design that is compact and elegant. The interior is furnished with
modern, straight-grained Figured Ebony veneer or Knurled Aluminum
finish for the XK, or the stunning Dark Oak or Dark Mesh Aluminum
finish for the XKR.
Production for the XKR175 75th Anniversary Coupe will be limited to 175 units for the U.S. market and
an additional 15 for Canada. All are painted Ultimate Black and also
distinguished by 20-inch Kasuga alloy wheels, aerodynamic enhancements
and a special interior trim. The electronically governed top speed is

XKR Convertible $114,000
XKR175 75th Anniversary Coupe (Limited Edition) $116,000
The Jaguar XF sport sedan enters its third model year with a major
powertrain change; for 2011, the 5.0-liter AJ-V8 Gen III
direct-injection engine, already standard on the XF Premium model,
replaces the previous 4.2-liter V8 in the XF base model. As a result,
the entry Jaguar now offers 385 hp and 380 lb.-ft. of torque,
substantial increases over the 300 hp and 310 lb.-ft. for the 2010
4.2-liter model, and can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 5.8
seconds. The 2011 Jaguar XF is the only car in its segment to offer an
all-V8 engine lineup.
Interior enhancements include twin-needle stitching which extends across
the dash top and gorgeous wood finishes throughout the entire interior.
Whether you choose the traditional, glossy Burl Walnut on the XF or XF
Premium or the stunning Dark Oak that comes with the supercharged XFR,
the craftsmanship is consistently impressive.
XF Luxury $62,800
XF Premium Luxury $68,300
New for 2011, all Jaguar models come standard with Jaguar Platinum
Coverage, which includes complimentary scheduled maintenance for the
five-year/80,000 km (whichever comes first) new vehicle limited
warranty periods. This new program also includes no-cost replacement of
