The 2010 Jaguar XJ is coming--this week, TheCarConnection.com has the first photos of the revamped luxury sedan as it has its world premiere.

Earlier today, other publications that were granted an advanced look at the XJ in London, published pictures that were previously held under embargo until tomorrow afternoon. So you're not left out of the action, we've verified the first two images here from other sources are accurate, and are publishing them ahead of tomorrow's full release of photos and tech details. We've also added images confirmed via publication on a British Web site.

The new XJ had a sort of coming-out party at the recent Shanghai auto show, when the British brand released the first pics and video of their new range-topping sedan. Then, the snoops at Motor Authority grabbed the latest spy shots of the XJ, tooling around Germany’s Nurburgring circuit.

In case you've been unaware of the last 1.5 years of turbulent auto-industry times, the 2010 Jaguar XJ is the first car to come out under new Jaguar ownership by Tata. According to non-Jaguar sources, it sports a radical new aluminum body with a new 500-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 engine that shares its basics with the 2010 Land Rover lineup. A plug-in hybrid variant is also rumored to be launched one year after the regular model, though there's no confirmation from Jaguar itself.

The shape of the new sedan addresses the concerns that come from today's XJ: that it looks like an upsized 1990s Buick. High-tech features inside are said to include pressure sensing buttons, combined with backlit glass panels and the retracting transmission selector knob used in the XF. A full glass roof is among the intriguing features mentioned by British car magazines.

On Thursday at 3:30 p.m. ET, you'll be able to see the rest of the photos we have of the new XJ, and get all the technical details. Keep your browsers pointed here to TheCarConnection.com and to our 2010 Jaguar XJ page for a full preview and photo release.

  1. I love the front - they are building on the last sedan, the XF (?). But the back, although nice, looks a lot like the Lincoln MKS. Which is good news for Lincoln!

  3. Vectra? Interesting take. Lots of people are suggesting Renault Laguna.

  4. I'll bet this design grows on me, though the grill is a miss on an otherwise attractive and aggressive front end. For me, the rear is very Bentley-ish, no?
