MORE GRIP FOR LUXURY JAGS: Jaguar's new all-wheel drive models will increase the capability of the XF and XJ in driving conditions where more traction is essential.

Jaguar will launch all-wheel drive versions of its XF and XJ sedans in selected markets from 2013.

North America, Russia, China and Europe will account for the majority of sales for the new AWD models which are powered by Jaguar’s new 3.0 V6 supercharged 250kW petrol engine.

'REINVOGORATE JAGUAR'

Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar's global brand director, said: "Jaguar has revitalised its core range and is now undertaking an intensive programme of introducing new models, strategic powertrain and technologies to reinvigorate the Jaguar brand around the world.

"The new AWD products are another example of how we are taking the Jaguar business forward by thinking globally and targeting specific market opportunities by addressing specific regional requirements.”

Jaguar will focus the majority of its AWD models, starting in October 2012, in the US, the world's largest AWD market.

The AWD XJ and XF will allow Jaguar to compete in 80% of the luxury sedan markets, the automaker said.
