Jaguar launches new All-Wheel Drive XF in the UK
12th January 2016
Already the class benchmark for driving dynamics and driver engagement, the All-New Jaguar XF will, in 2016, offer an even greater breadth of dynamic ability.
For the first time, Jaguar’s business saloon offers all-wheel drive (AWD) together with a four-cylinder diesel engine – the clean, refined, 180PS 2.0-litre Ingenium unit. This combination will offer customers exceptional fuel efficiency together with enhanced all-weather traction and performance.
Jaguar’s torque on-demand AWD system features Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) – a next-generation control technology developed entirely in-house. Launched in the F-TYPE AWD, IDD delivers rear-wheel drive character and agility but can transfer precisely the right amount of torque to the front axle when required, maximising the performance and dynamics benefits of the additional traction. The result is superb composure in even the most adverse weather conditions.
“The all-new Jaguar XF is already established as the most dynamically-rewarding saloon car in the business segment. Now we’re making the performance and traction benefits of all-wheel drive accessible to more customers worldwide by combining the system with our clean, refined and efficient Ingenium diesel engines.
“By making our Configurable Dynamics and Adaptive Dynamics technologies available on more models across the range, we’re once again raising the benchmark for ride and handling.”
The 2017 model year Jaguar XF range will consist of: XF Prestige, XF R-Sport, XF Portfolio, XF S.
The powertrain range will consist of:
163PS 2.0-litre diesel manual/ automatic RWD; 180PS 2.0-litre diesel manual/ automatic RWD, automatic AWD; 300PS 3.0-litre diesel automatic RWD; 380PS 3.0-litre petrol automatic RWD.
