OFFICIAL: Jaguar XJ revealed

Live from the London unveil, we have all the official pictures, facts and figures on the brand new Jaguar XJ.

The waiting is finally over… Jaguar has finally pulled the wraps from its all-new XJ.

These first official pictures reveal the luxury saloon in all its detail –from its distinctive nose, to that incredible tail…

Sleek, sporting and sophisticated, Jaguar promises that the XJ brings a daring new spirit to its line up - with a seductive mix of striking design, breathtaking performance and advanced engineering.

Available to order now, prices for the all aluminium machine start at £52,500 - for the standard wheelbase 3.0-litre V6 diesel luxury.

Building on the success of the new XK and XF models, the introduction of the all-new XJ represents a key moment for the Coventry firm.

Positioned as the company’s four-door flagship, it marks a mid-way point in the historic firm’s reinvention – paving the way for new growth and new competition.

Representing a huge step forward over all that the XJ has offered before, detailing includes a panoramic glass roof as well as dramatic rear lights that arch up and over the boot lid.

Standard- and long-wheelbase models are available from launch, while inside the cabin promises to set new standards for elegant, contemporary design with the comfort, luxury and unmistakable sporting style of a Jaguar. Chrome and piano black detailing provide an eye-catching contrast to the beautifully-crafted leather and veneer surfaces.

Three specification levels are to be offered, including Luxury, Premium Luxury and Portfolio – to allow the customer to tailor the car to suit their tastes.

Beyond this are the Supercharged and the top-of-the-range Supersport, the latter providing the ultimate expression of performance and luxury, with a specification that includes a leather roof-lining, leather seats and special veneers.

All of Jaguar's acclaimed new petrol and diesel engines will be available in the XJ.

Entry level cars will offer a 3.0-litre V6 diesel, and there are two petrol power plants to choose between, including a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 and 5.0-litre supercharged V8. Flagship models offer a 470 horsepower version of the supercharged engine.

Fuel economy and emissions are also outstanding, with the diesel-powered XJ returning combined economy figures of 40.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 184g/km.

Proven Jaguar dynamic technologies are taken to new levels in the all-new XJ. Features such as air suspension, Adaptive Dynamics (continuously variable damping), Active Differential Control and quick-ratio power steering deliver the blend of responsive, dynamic handling and refined, supple ride expected from a Jaguar.

Inside the car, advanced new technologies have allowed Jaguar’s designers to create an environment more akin to a state-of-the-art living space than a simple car cabin. Stunning, 12.3-inch high-definition Virtual Instruments complement an innovative, Dual-View technology 8-inch Touch-screen that can project DVD movies or television programmes to the passenger while the driver views vehicle functions or follows satellite navigation.

Premium surround sound options include the top-of-the-range 1200W Bowers & Wilkins system, which is comparable in audio quality to the best in-home entertainment. Advanced infotainment features also include hard drive-based audio and navigation systems, and comprehensive connectivity for portable audio and video devices via the powerful Media Hub.
