Jaguars are delightfully raucous offerings in the luxury sedan, coupe, and convertible space. The cars make great noise and can billow terrific clouds of smoke from the rear tires. But now, models like the sporty F-Type R come fitted with all-wheel drive. Another Jaguar is getting the four-wheel traction treatment too. The latest Jaguar XF will be available with all-wheel drive.
The good news here is that, like we said in the beginning, Jaguars are delightfully raucous. And though the cars are fitted with all-wheel drive, the system used is biased towards sending power out back. You might not be delivering masterful brake stands, but you can get funky fresh with your favorite canyon road.
Jaguar is employing the all-wheel-drive setup on XF sedans packing the 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine. It will become available first in its native England, and then filter out to other markets. This includes the United States, where an all-wheel-drive XF is sure to be a hit in the cold climes of Boston, New York, and Chicago. It's a good looking car, and now it will be more accessible to folks tasked with dealing with inclement weather. And the move isn't entirely a surprise considering the last XF also offered all-wheel drive.
If we had to choose, though, we'd take our XF with 100 percent rear-wheel bias all of the time, thanks. Now if we could just order the F-Type R that way as well.
