Jaguar Teases With First Images and Video of New 2010 XJ
Jaguar has announced plans to launch a brand new XJ sedan on July 9th in London. This is a critical vehicle for the British-born, Indian-owned brand, and it appears as if the automaker is pulling out all the stops to ensure this new edition is a success. Like the last XJ, the 2010 model will use a lightweight aluminum-intensive structure, to which a new 503-hp, supercharged, direct-injected, 5.0-liter V8 will be added. There's also rumor of a hybrid option.
The 2010 Jaguar XJ should officially begin arriving in showrooms this December, and we suspect it will be wearing sheetmetal that's inspired by the automaker's highly successful XF model. To whet our appetites, Jaguar has used the start of the Shanghai Motor Show this week to release a couple of teaser images that you can see below and a short video of the new cat, which you can watch after the break.
