Jaguar, the India owned British manufacturer has introduced 2017 XF, that will be packed with an all-wheel drive system. Though, Jaguar XF was officially revealed mid last year, the brand has already prepared a tech update, which focus on the addition of an all-wheel drive system. This is the similar technology used in the F-Type AWD sports coupe.
Talking about the all-wheel mechanism, the arrangement weighs 231 pounds and primarily gives drive to the rear wheels. At the time of losing traction, the system sends torque to the front axle, which provides improved levels of grip compared to the Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) model. The 2017 MY XF also gets a new feature for it, the Jaguar Configurable Dynamics system that now can be ordered for all the variants across the range, which provides customizable steering, throttle, transmission, and suspension settings.
Further, the interesting thing is that this AWD system will be offered exclusively for the 2.0-litre diesel unit connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission that produces 180 HP. This arrangement provides a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in around 7.9 seconds with a top speed rated at 136 mph.
