Jaguar rumored to debut the F-Type AWD at the 2014 LA Auto Show

Article by Christian A., on October 17, 2014

Although Jaguar said that it will not add an all-wheel drive version of the F-Type, it appears that the British manufacturer changed its mind and we will see an AWD version of its stylish convertible at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The decision to build an F-Type AWD was to better compete with its main rival, the Porsche 911 and to boost sales of the F-Type in North America and Alpine countries.

The new AWD version promises to double market coverage of the F-Type. When it comes to design, the new F-Type AWD is expected to show a higher bonnet due to the fact that the company needed to accommodate the extra driveshafts and differentials.

Jaguar is expected to offer the same 3.0-liter V6 engines or the more powerful V8. For those who don’t know, the 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering 340 hp is capable to push the F-Type from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds, while top speed is 161 mph or 260 km/h.

Meanwhile, the F-Type S carries the same 3.0-liter V6 engine, delivering 380 hp, which pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, with a top speed electronically limited at 171 mph or 275 km/h.

The F-Type V8 S uses the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine develops 495 hp, which means an acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds, with a top speed limited at 300 km/h or 186 mph. We expect the AWD F-Type models to be as fast if not faster than the current offerings.
