Axle Ratio - 3.06

It is the same for all trims.

The higher the axle ratio, the more power your vehicle produces, and as a result, the more weight this car can tow.

Drive Type - no data

All-wheel or rear-wheel drive vehicles are best suited for towing, while front-wheel drive vehicles can haul much less weight.

Transmission - no data

Do not overload your vehicle while towing, as this can cause the transmission to overheat and fail. If your transmission has "Towing mode" - be sure to turn it on.

Turbocharger - no data

Turbocharged engines produce more power, so if you need a vehicle for towing, choose the one equipped with a turbo.

Wheelbase - 113

It is the same for all trims.

The longer your vehicle's wheelbase, the less likely the trailer you tow will push down on the rear axle and lift the front end.

Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a front axle of your Jaguar XJR.

Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data
