2013 Jaguar XF and XJ Will Come With All Wheel Drive and Supercharged V6

A month back we discussed abut the 2013 Jaguar XF. Now the company has confirmed that the 2013 Jaguar XJ will also get the 3.0-Litre Supercharged V6 Petrol Engine that delivers 335 HP (340 PS) of power and 450 Nm of torque.

The foremost exciting news is that, Jaguar has announced the introduction of All-Wheel-Drive System (AWD) to the 2013 XF and XJ Line-up. This AWD System is developed with major help from the sister company, Land Rover. This AWD will come exclusively with the cars that are powered by the Monstrous V6 Engine. An 8-Speed ZF Automatic Transmission will be common on all variants of the XF and the AWD Version of the XF.


Mr. 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.

But it is truly disheartening that the company will offer the AWD Version only in the “snow-belt” regions of the selected markets that include North America, Russia, China and Continental Europe. At least for the time being, Jaguar has no plans to offer the AWD variants in the UK and India!
