There can be only one reason behind the use of so much armor on the 2011 XJ. As the rumor goes, the new cat will be a shock to the more conservative Jaguar customers. Upon the release of the first teaser video showcasing the car, the British manufacturer has "warned" the XJ will "introduce the highest standards of personal luxury and specification, including a panoramic glass roof."
Engine wise, the news hasn't much changed. Boasting the so-called third generation engines, the range will include a 3.0l V6 and most likely a new 5.0l V8, developing a whopping 510 horsepower. Of course, this doesn't mean these will be the only two engine choices.
Speculation on the new XJ will come to an end in June, when the car will be officially detailed. As for sales, the manufacturer says the new XJ will become available for purchase as soon as the end of 2009.
