Billed as a “Plant Launch Vehicle” by its window placard, there are very few visual differences between the F-Type with all-wheel drive and its rear-drive counterparts.
That’s fortunate, as it’s expected to debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show next month.
What can we expect of the F-Type with all four wheels driven? That remains to be seen, however, we’d expect a similar range of engines as those found in the current F-Type to be available in the all-wheel-drive model, including supercharged V-6 and V-8 engines rated up to 550 horsepower.
It’s not yet clear if Jaguar will extend its all-wheel-drive variants to include the expected SVR super-performance model or the planned entry-level turbocharge four-cylinder version.
Otherwise, the all-wheel-drive F-Type should feature slightly different front end styling, perhaps including wider front fenders to accommodate the drive system, and different badging at the rear. The rest of the F-Type’s current equipment and interior design should carry forward unchanged.
If the reports prove true, all should be answered in Los Angeles in a month’s time.
