2010 Jaguar XJ

Montreal, Quebec – Jaguar Canada has debuted the all-new 2011 XJ at the Montreal International Auto Show, and will display its entire 2010 model year lineup alongside.

Building on the success of the XK and XF, the new XJ is the third step in the revitalization of the Jaguar brand, redefining the world’s perception of a large sports sedan. It will be available in both standard and long-wheelbase models.

The XJ’s lightweight aluminum structure makes it at least 136 kilograms lighter than steel body construction, and in production, three tons fewer C02 per vehicle is emitted thanks to the use of recycled materials, compared to a body shell made entirely of new aluminum.

The new XJ offers a modern reinterpretation of a number of key historic design cues, including a muscular lower half and slim roofline, a direct influence from the original 1968 XJ sedan. A panoramic glass roof is standard. Other features include a mesh grille, slim xenon headlights, teardrop rear windows and LED taillight clusters with three vertical red strips. Inside, the XJ features chrome and piano black detailing, new wood and leather choices, analog clock with spun metal face, high-definition Virtual Instruments, and an available 1,200-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system.

The new XJ will be available in Canada with a choice of three engines: a 5.0-litre, 385-horsepower naturally-aspirated V8; a 470-horsepower supercharged V8 in the Supercharged; and a 510-horsepower supercharged V8 in the Supersport model.

The all-new model is now available for ordering, with delivery in the spring of 2010, at prices ranging from $88,000 to $133,500.
