Does the Jaguar XJ Diesel Sport Have Less Performance than the Gas Version?
Although it has not reached the US market yet, there are promises that the Jaguar XJ Diesel has less performance compared to the gas version. The 2011 Jaguar XJ Diesel Sport has received accolades for performance that are truly outstanding. Redesigned into a great-looking sporty sedan for 2010, the XJ Diesel gets 35 mpg and is able to boast 0-60 performance in six seconds. This performance pushes it past the standard V-8 by more than a second, and puts it only a second behind the supercharged V-8 version. A twin-turbo version of the diesel is planned that will offer about 440 pounds per feet of torque. It will also offer a top end of 155 mph and 12% better mileage in a smaller engine package.
