The front bumper is new and features intakes with a different shape to those on the current XJ. The grille has also been revised and at the rear the exhaust tips have a different shape. The lights also get some tweaks it appears.
Given the XJ’s recent drivetrain updates, few changes are expected under the hood. The range-topper will remain the 550-horsepower XJR, which is undergoing its own update, while at the other end of the spectrum the base model should continue with its 340-horsepower V-6. All-wheel drive will also continue to be an option.
Look for the updated Jaguar XJ to hit showrooms towards the end of the year, as a 2016 model. The car’s introduction will spearhead the arrival of several all-new Jaguars in the next 12 to 18 months including the new XE small sedan, F-Pace crossover and the next-generation XF.
