Produced from 1945 to 1949, the Jaguar Mark IV was the designation used for models that were launched by SS Cars in 1935. SS Cars Ltd. was renamed Jaguar in 1945 and the model name changed accordingly. Three versions were built from 1945 to 1949: the Jaguar Mark IV 1.5 liter, the 2.5-liter, and the 3.5-liter. The smaller model was originally powered by a 1.6-liter engine, then replaced by a 1.7-liter, overhead-valve unit supplied by Standard, who was also making the four-speed transmission of the model. The Jaguar Mark IV 1.5 liter was only available in a coupe saloon trim, while the other models also offered a drophead coupe. The cars used a steel fabrication with a separate chassis frame featuring elliptic-spring suspension on rigid axles all around. With the 2.5-liter model, the engine gave 105 hp, and power went up to 125 with the last 3.5-liter iteration.
