The 2015 Jaguar F-Type AWD will have its premiere at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, which is scheduled for the upcoming November. The all-wheel drive model will be offered as both a coupe and a convertible and it will surely attract a huge number of buyers, not just because of its drive mode, but also because of some other rather interesting features it will bring. The new model will come with a slightly altered exterior design, which is a bit unusual in the automotive industry. The new F-Type will look more aggressive and bold, and there is a possibility that the interior gets a facelift as well. But cosmetic changes aside, the new model will ooze with its impressive powertrain. The manufacturer will offer couple of very powerful options with the new model, which will use a very clever AWD system. Also, the performance of the new F-Type will be improved by numerous tweaking and new techs, so the new model will be all set to compete against some of the toughest crowd on the market. But we are optimistic when it comes to the 2015 Jaguar F-Type AWD: it will surely win the hearts of the North American public.
How To Recognize F-Type AWD?
Like we mentioned before, the 2015 Jaguar F-Type AWD will have a bit different exterior compared to its rear-drive counterpart. This is one of the rare cases when two same units with two different drive modes have a different appearance. Though this move is quite unusual, it is well-justified. The reason for the new design lies in powertrain setups. The current design simply doesn’t offer enough space for the differentials and driveshafts which come with the all-wheel drive. Therefore, the new 2015 model will have o have a bit more robust front design and a larger hood in order to carry all that it needs for its impressive performance. In addition, the new F-Type will keep both the V6 and V8 supercharged engines, which are used for the rear-wheel drive coupe and convertible. However, the current six-speed manual transmission might not be carried over. There is little information about it at this point, but more will be known after the premiere.
2015 Jaguar F-Type AWD Performance
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type AWD will have a stunning performance. Its power output will be the same as the rear-wheel drive model’s, only this time the power will be distributed differently. The new clever AWD system will change its behavior depending on the road condition. Therefore, it will send more power to the rear wheels in standard driving, which will improve the car’s performance, steering and agility. On other times, when needed, the system can also push the power equally to all four wheels, enabling the powerful 4×4 mode to kick in. This will especially come in handy at sharp corners of aggressive starts.
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type AWD will come in three options. The first one is the F-Type R Coupe with 542 bhp instead of 485 bhp, compared to the current version. The second option is an F-Type S Coupe with 374 bhp and the last one is the 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Convertible. This way the manufacturer offered something for everybody, while at the same time improving the current lineup.
2015 Jaguar F-Type AWD Premiere
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type AWD will have its premiere soon, at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. We are sure that the new model will be far more successful on the USA market than the rear-wheel drive model, simply because of its impressive powertrain and the so beloved AWD. The new model will, therefore, have all the tools to grab a huge piece of the market segment. Its exact release is still unknown, but we believe it will be available in the first half of next year.
