JAGUAR XJ6 (1968-1987) CAR HISTORY

Car review on JAGUAR XJ6

When Jaguar launched the XJ6 in 1968 they brought together in one design the standards of ride comfort, quietness, handling and road holding — qualities previously thought incompatible in a luxury car — that eclipsed the best in Europe and set the pace for the succeeding 20 years.


In one stroke, Jaguar's boss Sir William Lyons rewrote the luxury-car rule book, not with radical new concepts — the XJ was a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive coil-sprung saloon — but by fine-tuning existing components. On its plump tires, specially designed for it by Dunlop, this new British world-beater would out-corner Jaguar's own E-Type but had a ride that was softer and quieter than a RoIls-Royce. This was the world's most beautiful saloon too, a car with a feline aggression and organic muscularity that proved amazingly enduring: the last XJ saloons, the V-twelve’s, were built in 1991 and looked embarrassingly more attractive than the new XJ40.


Initially using the well-proven six-cylinder XK engine - the V-twelve didn't arrive until 1972 - most XJs were automatics, all had power steering and Jaguar built a few with a short-stroke 2.8-litre engine to beat European tax laws. That proved unreliable and is rare today.

Like all Jaguars before it, the XJ was a bargain, often undercutting the nearest comparable Mercedes by more than half. As production got up to speed during the early 70s, the four-door XJ began to spawn other variants: the inevitable badge-engineered Daimler, the short-lived XJC coupe (complete with vinyl roof), long-wheelbase and V- twelve cars. The XJ wasn't perfect, of course. Quality, never top-drawer stuff, was looking very shaky on the first of the face-lifted Series 3 models at a time when the future seemed bleak for the still publicly-owned, strike-torn Jaguar. Buyers lost confidence and sales began to nose-dive. Enter, in March 1980, John Egan, the man given the job of making or breaking British-flagship Leyland's problem child. The rest, as they say, is history: as his drive to improve quality at Browns Lane began to take hold, the flagging sales were arrested. Jaguar went public with spectacular success in 1984 and in North America the Jaguar range, spearheaded by the now 15-year-old XJ6, was breaking all sales records and creating the profits that allowed Jaguar to develop and build its successor.
