    Jaguar Says Future Models Will Get An AWD Option

    Jaguar's global brand director Adrian Hallmark said something very interesting at the launch of the XF and XJ all-wheel drive models.

    "I can't think of any model that wouldn't benefit from not having the option of it."

    There's one problem with that at the moment. Jaguar's current models weren't engineered to have a AWD system installed. The only reason Jaguar put one into the XF and XJ with the new supercharged V6 was that they could see a return on their investment when the two vehicles go sale in the U.S. and Canada.

    No other Jaguar engine will be mated to the all-wheel drive system for now. In future models though, that could change.

    "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.
