July 25, 2017: Jaguar has announced that the 2018 XJ model range will go on sale in the international market in autumn of 2017. With it, will come the XJ 575 which is slated to become the fastest, most powerful XJ ever. It is powered by a 5.0-litre, supercharged V8 petrol engine that produces 575 PS of power and 700Nm of torque. That’s 25PS and 20Nm more than its predecessor. Mated to the engine is a 8-speed automatic gearbox and power will be sent to the rear wheels only. The setup is enough for the car to complete the 0-100kmph sprint in 4.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 300kmph.

In April 2016, a report claimed that the next generation of Jaguar XJ sedan has been commissioned to go under development. The all new car is expected to be launched in international markets sometime in the year 2019, after which it will make its Indian debut. The 2019 Jaguar XJ is expected to incorporate the familiar aluminium construction that we see in the XF sedan, and is also likely to flaunt lightweight, high tensile strength carbon fibre panels. The power plants still remain unconfirmed, but there is a possibility that the Jaguar XJ might be launched with a hybrid powertrain, which will enhance the car’s fuel economy. Jaguar XJ rivals the likes of BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
