For 2006 the Jaguar XJ-Series adds the limited edition Super V8 Portfolio flagship and minor updates to the lineup. The exterior of the XJ-Series is updated with chrome mesh grille inserts, new alloy wheels, new smoked-lens side indicators and removal of body side and front/rear window moldings for a cleaner look. The interior receives new laminated side glass and windshield with acoustic interlayer for noise reduction, a standard DVD-based satellite navigation system on XJR and Vanden Plas and a standard electric rear sunblind on XJ8 L. Power has been increased on the naturally aspirated V8 to 300 horsepower and the Supercharged V8 to 400 and a six-speed ZF automatic transmission is standard on all XJ-Series models. A new Conti-Teves braking system helps improve pedal feel and performance and a new tire-pressure-monitoring system features radio frequency transmitters at each wheel.

A FatCat's Car by WS in NY on 12/12/2007. Trim: 2006 Jaguar XJ8 L, Owned 1 year.
2
Pros: Very comfortable on long road trips (my old 1998 XJ & 2001 VDP XJ were a little cramped & that became apparent in stiff joints after 2 hours of continuous driving). Much improved reliability over older XJs, more advanced also. Of course, continues to be stylish & elegant. The lighter but stiffer aluminum body definately gives it a uniquely refined drive.
Cons: The steering is a little too loose (Consumer Reports calls it "light"..I agree)- combine that with a higher center of gravity and the car is less assured at higher speeds & sharp turns than the older XJs.
Overall review: While this is the FatCat's Jag (the pre-2004 models were the Playboy's Jag)- this Jag still has the heart & soul of Sir William Lyons- fast and gorgeous.
