Earlier this year, Jaguar announced that it will start offering all-wheel-drive in its XF and XJ luxury sedan models. According to Jaguar’s global brand director Adrian Hallmark, every future Jaguar will now be developed with all-wheel-drive capability.
“I can’t think of any model that wouldn’t benefit from not having the option of it,” said Hallmark.
Currently, only the XF and XJ with the 3.0 liter V6 engine will offer all-wheel-drive capability due to the engineering cost is high and return on investment is low in the process. However, in future models, Jaguar will engineer all-wheel drive technology right from the start.
“At the moment, we can’t take the full grid of engines, models and drivetrains and tick every box and offer them all. We have to prioritise. In the future, we know what it takes to get all-wheel drive,” said Hallmark.
