2013 Jaguar XF And XJ Available With An All-Wheel Drive System

Jaguar is building impressive cars with a wide range of engines, but so far there has not been an all-wheel drive option. For the 2013 model year, the XF and XJ range will be available also with AWD.

The XF and XJ AWD models will be powered exclusively by 335bhp 3.0 litre V6 supercharged petrol engine.

Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar, said: “Our All-Wheel Drive system preserves all the dynamic qualities of our rear-wheel drive Jaguar saloons in terms of handling, steering quality and ride refinement while adding a new depth of ability in low-grip conditions. The system delivers all the traction benefits you would expect, but the AWD XF and XJ are still very rewarding cars to drive – which was exactly our intention.”

Of course it would be nice to see the AWD also on the hot supercharged 5.9 litre V8 variant. Maybe one day?
