For 2006 iterations of Jaguar's full-size sedans, Jaguar offers two trims for standard wheelbase, then adds four more with a five-inch wheelbase extension.

Powertrains come from Jaguar's dual-cam 4.2-liter V8 with all torque translated through ZF's six-speed electronic automatic transmission. Prime model XJ8 packs the naturally-aspirated V8, which gains power in 2006 to reach 300 hp, while a performance edition badged as XJR scores a supercharged boost to 400 hp this year.

XJ8L with stretched wheelbase has the roof raised and rear seat section expanded, as a dressy version called Vanden Plas provides lavish rear quarters for chauffeured rides.

Super V8 defines a stretched and powerful supercharged flagship for Jaguar with performance equipment from XJR like Brembo disc brakes plus premium cabin appointments from Vanden Plas. And Jaguar's most luxurious production model emerges in 2006 as the Super V8 Portfolio, identified by sculpted aluminum power side vents.

Sensuously styled sedans, coupes and convertibles badged by Britain's classy Jaguar coachmaker leap into 2006 with powerful engines and sophisticated safety systems plus new features added for comfort and convenience. Models include the X-Type all-wheel-drive (AWD) sedan and sport wagon of compact dimensions, the elegant XJ series of full-size and stretched flagship sedans, sporty XK mid-size coupes and convertibles, and curvaceous S-Type mid-size sports sedans. Newest Jaguar is also the rarest -- XJ Super V8 Portfolio, a plush yet powerful luxury sedan on a stretched wheelbase and available strictly in limited numbers.
