MAHWAH, N.J., Dec. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Jaguar is proud to announce that the all-new 2011 XJ is an AUTOMOBILE Magazine 2011 All-Star for its part in redefining and modernizing the brand. This marks the third consecutive year a Jaguar has received the honor. The Jaguar XF was an AUTOMOBILE Magazine All-Star for 2009 and 2010.
"We are thrilled that the 2011 Jaguar XJ has been named an All-Star by the experts at AUTOMOBILE Magazine," said Richard Beattie, Jaguar North America Executive Vice President, Marketing and Sales. "The XJ is a real milestone for Jaguar, and when joined with the XF sedan and XK coupe and convertibles, it completes the transformation of the brand into a modern lineup of beautiful, fast cars."
"The toughest part about this class is that it's very hard for any one car to stand out in the crowd, and yet the XJ manages to do just that, in both its design and its dynamics. Both for the aesthete and the enthusiast, the all-new Jaguar XJ is an All-Star," – AUTOMOBILE Magazine
For 2011, there were 271 automobiles for sale in the United States that were eligible for the award. The prestigious All-Star awards recognize 10 vehicles chosen by the editorial staff of AUTOMOBILE Magazine.
The all-new 2011 Jaguar XJ was launched to critical acclaim in spring 2010, and features a new frame that is pressure cast from aluminum and magnesium to give the XJ a strong, light architecture that improves fuel efficiency, structural rigidity and performance. The sleek design and refined luxury is continued inside the all-new XJ by mixing newly advanced technologies and contemporary design to create an environment more akin to a state-of-the-art living space than a car cabin.
Priced from $72,700 on the road, the Jaguar XJ is on-sale now at Jaguar dealerships throughout the US. For anyone buying or leasing a new 2011 Jaguar between now and February 28 next year, they'll receive membership to Jaguar Platinum Access, an exclusive Jaguar program that provides access to some of the world's best-known luxury brands such as Canyon Ranch, Mandarin Oriental, Neiman Marcus, and many more.
To add, for all 2011 Jaguar models in North American, the brand's new best-in-class Jaguar Platinum Coverage also offers complimentary scheduled maintenance, no-cost replacement of wear and tear items, 24/7 roadside assistance and a 5 year/50,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty.
