It replaced the previous Mark VIII. The early versions were identical in exterior appearance to the Mark VIII except for the addition of a chrome "Mk IX" badge to the boot lid. Later versions had a larger tail-lamp assembly with the addition of an amber section for traffic indication visually similar to the tail-lights of the smaller Mark 2 Jaguar sedan. It was replaced by the lower and more contemporary-styled Mark X in 1961. 220HP DOHC straight-6 Twin HD6 1.75" SU carburetors and a smaller electromagnetically controlled auxiliary carburetor was placed between the main pair of carburetors to act as a choke Borg Warner three-speed automatic box The torsion bar independent front suspension and leaf-sprung rear live axle The interior was in the same luxurious mode with extensive use of leather walnut wood trim and deep pile carpet

The Mark IX was the first production Jaguar to offer four-wheel servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes and recirculating ball power steering. The brake system included a vacuum reserve tank to preserve braking in the event that the engine stalled and the brakes are equipped with an electromagnetic valve that maintained brake pressure at rest when the brake pedal was released to prevent the car from rolling back on an incline hence its name "Hill Holder“. The sunshine roof became a standard fitting for the UK market.
