Engine Options and Performance

Not only does the 2017 Jaguar XJ provide you with more engine choices, but all of them outperform the lone powertrain on the 2017 Audi A7:

  • Jaguar XJ: The lineup starts off with a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission that churns out 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, while upper trims get a supercharged 5.0L V8 that maxes out at 470 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque. Opt for the top-of-the-line Jaguar XJR trim, and you can expect a specially tuned version of the supercharged 5.0L V8 that generates a whopping 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque.
  • Audi A7: The output from the Audi’s supercharged 3.0L V6 simply pales in comparison to the machines in the Jaguar, as it musters just 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, yet 340 hp is possible on the Competition trim. Regardless, this is the only engine available on the 2017 Audi A7, solidifying the 2017 Jaguar XJ’s position as a superior performer.
