Mama D's Diary: 2016 Jaguar XJ XJL Portfolio in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area

1000 × 561

Greetings everyone, Mama D here and this past week I had the pleasure of driving a 2016 Jaguar XJ XJL Portfolio in the Dallas area. It was a gorgeous Celestial Black exterior with super comfy quilted ivory leather seats and suede headliner. Those of you that follow Mama D know that I just love Jaguars…especially the F type sports car because, you know why-lol. This was the first time driving one of their larger luxury sedans.

The first thing Mama D noticed when she walked up to the vehicle was that this was one stunning, classy “cat” that I couldn’t wait to drive!! My first thought though was why haven’t I seen more of these gorgeous cars!!! The car has 20” Orona 8-spoke high gloss silver alloy wheels which compliment the exterior. If you look at the car from the back it has the classic Jaguar cat (which I love..and would love to own a real one-lol) and the coolest LED brake lights I think I’ve ever seen!!!

The front of the vehicle has a nice wide grill with classic cat head, full LED headlights that really light up the road at night, and chrome inserts adding to its overall beauty.

The cockpit is extremely plush and well laid out and has a nifty chrome gear selector disc that rises from the center console when you start the car. The touch screen is “pretty” easy to navigate but definitely not a cake walk for Mama D-lol. The driver’s seat is super comfy and has a massage feature as well as heating/cooling options. The rear side seats are quilted like the front with a ton of leg room and a nice fold down console if there isn’t a 5th passenger in the car. There are also door bins on all the doors which is a nice feature for the driver and passengers.

Mama D has set everything to her liking and is now ready to have some fun driving this black cat that wants to prowl-lol. First thing I notice is that this car is somewhat lighter than some German competitors; yet it has the feel and drive of a heavier car. Its 3.0 liter 340 HP Supercharged V6 was definitely not short on power; even for Mama D-lol. It is capable of going 0 – 60 MPH in 5.4 seconds and held its own at 100 in the express lanes; all while delivering a phenomenal driving experience offering power, comfort and control to the driver.

The 20 speaker 825 watt sound system was another feature Mama D loved once she figured out how to change the stations on the screen-lol. This car comes with not only lots of great standard features, but $8,000 in options too numerous to list. One of the options I will mention is the Parking Assist Pack which includes surround camera system, 360 degree park distance control and …get this…parallel/perpendicular/park exit park assist…a dream right?! If only Mama D dared to try it…I do promise that one of these days I will surprise you all and test it out!!! It also has voice activated dual zone front and rear automatic a/c which I thought was really pretty cool!

This spectacular vehicle is priced at $51,650 (which we all know eCarOne has the best prices for luxury cars around the Dallas area and not because Mama D blogs for them but because it is a fact).

If you are seeking an awesome looking Jaguar near Dallas that combines sport and comfort delivering a flawless driving experience than dare to be different and drive the uncommon and let others look and admire!!
