XJ6/XJ12 Production Cronology

This production cronology has been adapted from information contained in Jaguar XJ-Series (Classics in Colour 2) by Martin Buckley and James Mann ISBN 1 87200 481 4, and published by Windrow & Greene Ltd.

 

October 1968

Jaguar XJ6 (Series I) is introduced to the Earls Court Motor Show. Available with 2.8 or 4.2 litre engines, manual, manual with overdrive, or three speed automatic transmission.

October 1969

Daimler Sovereign version of the XJ6 is announced. Essentilly the same car mechanically but with crinkle-cut Daimler grille and different badging.

Early 1970

New Borg-Warner model 12 automatic transmission with part-throttle kick-down and better over-ride control replaces the aging Type 8 gearbox.

July 1972

The XJ12 Saloon is announced. Different grille and badging distinguish the new 5.3 litre V-12 engined car from the XJ6. The XJ12 has ventilated front disc brakes and a limited slip differential to cope with its 140 mph performance. It is not offered with a manual transmission.

September 1972

Top of the range Daimler Double-Six Vanden Plas is announced with four-inch longer long-wheelbase shell and special Vanden Plas trim.

October 1972

Long-wheelbase version of other XJs is now offered.

September 1973

Series II XJ range is announced at the Frankfurt Show. Features are new smaller front grille, higher front bumper, restyled dash, and improved heating system.

Two-door XJC coupé is also announced but does not go into production until 1975 due to development snags.

Pollution controls on both XK and V-12 engines reduce power. The 2.8 litre car is discontinued.

April 1975

Economy 3.4 litre XJ introduced with cloth seats as standard.

V-12 engined cars get Lucas/Bosch electronic fuel injection boosting power from 250 to 285 bhp and improving fuel economy.

September 1975

The 5.3 litre V-12 engined XJ-S is announced. Even more refined than the XJ saloon on which it is based, it is more aerodynamic than the E-type.

April 1977

More refined GM 400 Hydramatic replaces Borg-Warner automatic transmission in V-12 cars.

November 1977

XJC coupé production ends.

March 1979

Much improved Series III cars are introduced with crisper styling (squarer roof-line, more glass area, more steeply racked screen pillars, new black injection moulded bumpers) fuel injection for the 4.2 litre XK engine and Rover SD1 five-speed manual gearbox option, plus many minor trim and mechanical changes.

October 1980

Revised specification 3.4 litre XJ6 is introduced. It is priced £500 cheaper to compete with Mercedes 280E.

September 1981

H.E specification V-12 engine is introduced with "May" split-level combustion chambers giving a 25% improvement in fuel economy.

October 1982

Daimler name is dropped in Europe. Jaguar Sovereign introduced with perforated alloy wheels, improved equipment, but only for the Continent until 1984.

August 1983

Vanden Plas name is dropped.

May 1987

XJ6 Series III production ends. Replaced by the all-new XJ40 but still retains XJ6 badging.

May 1989

XJ12 Series III continues, V-12 can now run on unleaded fuel.

January 1990

ABS brakes are now fitted to the V-12, car continues in production.
