This is the first picture of Jaguar’s new XJ saloon. Revealed to the world’s media at Jaguar’s press conference at the Shanghai motor show today, it gives us a glimpse of the new Jaguar saloon that will be fully revealed on July 9 2009. Jaguar also released a video of the XJ, which can be viewed at the bottom of this page.

Were any new details released on the Jaguar XJ? 

Nothing we hadn’t already scooped from our sources, but Jaguar managing director Mike O’Driscoll confirmed that the all-new XJ will go on sale at the end of 2009, but will officially be revealed on July 9 in London.

The XJ will also continue to feature aluminium archictecture, use the recently unveiled 3.0-litre V6 diesel and 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8 engines, and come in standard and long-wheelbase layouts. O’Driscoll claimed the XJ ‘will introduce the highest standards of personal luxury and specification, including a panoramic glass roof’.

Prices and further details for the new XJ will be revealed on July 9, and orders will be taken from this date ahead of first deliveries in early 2010. To register interest ahead of that time, interested customers can access
