The XK 140 was introduced in 1954 with major changes in appearance and engineering. Externally, the classic lines were retained but were protected by sturdier bumpers to give better protection, both front and rear. From the rear, the basic lines were remained, but the finish features were completely restyled. The rear bumper wrapped around the fenders in a protective fashion and sported vertical bumper guards. Although the external appearance of the XK 140 was significantly altered, the major changes were mechanical.
