Jaguar Adopts Four-Wheel Drive

(Thursday 16 August 2012)

Jaguar 4x4 System.

For the first time since the demise of the Ford Mondeo-based X-Type, Jaguar is about to go into production with a four-wheel drive system.

Two 4x4s - one XF and XJ - will be put on sale, both of them fitted with a 335bhp three-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.

Production will start at Jaguar's Castle Bromwich factory in October, and it's expected that three-quarters of these cars will be exported to the US. The remainder will be sold in Russia and continental Europe.

Ironically, there are no plans of them to be sold in the country where they're built. Jaguar says that, since less than 5% of luxury saloons sold in the UK are fitted with four-wheel drive, they won't put these models on sale here, or at least not in the 2013 model year.
