The Jaguar XJ has a lightweight aluminum body structure, but until now its gas mileage has only been middling.

The addition of a six-cylinder engine, stop/start, and an eight-speed automatic brings much better highway gas mileage potential to the Jaguar XJ--if you can control your baser urges.

Doing the math is simple. Last year's entry-level XJ V-8 was rated by the EPA at 16/23 mpg; this year's supercharged six is pegged at 18 miles per gallon city, 27 miles per gallon highway, or 23 mpg combined.

Adding all-wheel drive, whether you're in a short- or long-wheelbase car, drops those figures to 16/24 mpg or 19 mpg combined.

The normally aspirated V-8 still is available in 385-horsepower form, now teamed with the more efficient eight-speed automatic. So paired, the 2013 XJ earns EPA figures of 16/25 mpg, or 19 mpg combined.

Finally, opt into the supercharged V-8s--either the 470-hp or 510-hp, short- or long-wheelbase versions--and gas mileage is 15/23 mpg, or 18 mpg combined, up a single mile per gallon highway from last year's numbers.

The XJ's stop/start system is one of the happier ones in the automotive universe. In bitter-cold driving, we only experienced it a few times, but it cycled on and off with a barely perceptible quiver.

 

Conclusion

The Jaguar XJ's gas mileage is better, thanks to a new V-6 and a new eight-speed automatic.

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.
