Expert Quotes:

2012 Jaguar XJ: 16/23 mpg (base); 15/21 mpg (supercharged); 15/22 mpg (long-wheelbase)
EPA





Fuel economy's mostly an afterthought for anyone shopping the 2012 Jaguar XJ. Still it's worth pointing out that the XJ doesn't get exceptional fuel economy even though it has a lightweight aluminum body structure.

Without any options for diesel or hybrid models, the XJ lineup is at its best in the base short-wheelbase version. The EPA rates it at 16/23 mpg. Adding supercharging to the 5.0-liter V-8 drops fuel economy to 15/21 mpg. Meanwhile, the long-wheelbase edition is rated by the EPA at 15/22 mpg.

Jaguar's six-speed automatic transmission was state of the art just a couple of years ago, but now other luxury brands are adopting seven- and eight-speed automatics. We expect that kind of efficient upgrade will be coming in the XJ within a year or so.

Conclusion

The Jaguar XJ's gas mileage isn't exceptional, even when compared with heftier competitors.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
