We’re about a month away from July 9th when Jaguar will unveil the much-anticipated Jaguar XJ for the very first time. So far, we’ve seen a teaser image that doesn’t reveal much and a boring video from Jaguar’s design head, Ian Callum.
The folks at Car Magazine now bring is some more details on the XJ and a couple of renderings on how the 2010 XJ will look like.
Known internally at Jaguar as the X351, the new XJ is out to set a new stylistic benchmark for Jaguar. In fact, the only thing we can remember Callum saying from his one-minute video is: “It certainly meets the expectations of people who understand design with a capital D,” says Callum.
Sources say that along with its good looks, the new XJ is all about performance, handling and economy. The new diesel spec models, which will be powered by a 237-hp and the 275-hp AJ-V6D found in the XF Diesel, will help the XJ achieve the lowest CO2 of any luxury sedan – including the Lexus LS600h hybrid.
While the XJ will be launched with a line of gasoline and diesel units, Jaguar is set to develop a hybrid powertrain of its own alongside Land Rover. Of course, you can expect Jaguar will be taking on the luxury hybrid sedans with its own ‘green’ models.
