The XK6 engine was a game changer when it was introduced after WWII, but by the mid-80s, it simply couldn't keep up with new technology. Jaguar replaced it with the AJ6, a slant 6 with a DOHC head, four valves per cylinder and an aluminum block. With its excellent power to weight ratio, the AJ-powered XJ6 was able to keep up with V8-powered luxury cars while giving the big sedan the handling and quiet operation owners expected from a Jaguar. The AJ16, introduced in 1994, revised the design to keep up with its rivals before being replaced by a new V8 in 1998.
