Jaguar Suspends XJ Production for Four Days Due to Supply Issue image

Jaguar announced that production of the XJ flagship sedan, which is built at the Castle Bromwich Assembly plant, will be suspended for four days next week.

The UK automaker Jaguar said that it will suspend for four days production of the XJ flagship sedan in the following week due to a problem with the supply chain.

“As a temporary measure, Jaguar Land Rover has stopped the Jaguar XJ production line due to a supply chain issue. Production of the Jaguar XJ will resume at the end of next week,” a Jaguar spokesman told Autocar.

The Castle Bromwich Assembly plant builds the F-Type, XK and XF models, besides the XJ, but the automaker said that production for the other models will not be affected.

As a reminder, the 2014 XJ model year will feature several interior improvements and technological upgrades, among which a new center armrest, 18-inch Manra lightweight forged alloy wheels, revised entertainment system, soft closing door technology, two high-resolution touchscreens and an optional Meridian Reference Audio System.

As for the engine options, these include the 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol engine, which has been carried over, along with the 5.0 liter V8 unit, producing 550 HP (405 kW) and 680 Nm of torque (502 lb-ft).
