An all-new Jaguar XJ will make its public debut this July – and yesterday Jaguar Cars released the first information about it.


Speaking at Auto Shanghai 2009, Mike O’Driscoll, managing director of Jaguar Cars, confirmed that the all-new XJ will officially be revealed on 9 July in London.


The all-new XJ is the first car to feature the next-generation of Jaguar’s aerospace-inspired aluminium body.


All of Jaguar’s new Gen III petrol and diesel engines will be available in the new XJ, including the already acclaimed V6 diesel and 510 BHP supercharged V8.


O’Driscoll also said that there will be a choice of standard or long-wheelbase models, all fitted with a panoramic glass roof.


The new XJ should be in dealerships from the end of this year.
