The sedan XF and XJ will soon receive updates for all-wheel drive with which they may compete against German rivals that already have them: The Quattro from Audi, the xDrive BMW, the 4Matic Mercedes ...

Under normal circumstances, the Jaguar system transmits power to the rear axle by default but, thanks to its active system of change of torque , it can deliver the 50% power to the front wheels. This system, like the Terrain Response of the brand of the company owned by Tata, Land Rover, control parameters such as surface conditions or riding style to identify the loss of adhesion and distribute power between the two axes of the most appropriate.

For Jaguar, introducing this system in their sedans has not been easy: The brand has had to modify the front subframe, with changes in the engine and exhaust systems.

The only engine that can be associated with all-wheel drive at Jaguar is the 3.0 V6 supercharged with 340 hp, a couple of 450 Nm and eight-speed automatic transmission. Performance is identical in both the XF and XJ in: self-limiting speed to 250 km / h , acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.4 seconds and consumes 9.8 liters per 100 km.
Prices the XF and XJ 3.0 AWD will be announced later.
