Four-wheel drive F-Type could land soon

Jaguar could be gearing up to release a new four-wheel drive version of the F-Type sports car.

If rumours are to be believed, the all-wheel drive F-Type could debut as soon as November, at the LA Auto Show at the end of the month.

According to reports, if the four-wheel F-Type is debuted in November, it could go on sale early next year, rivalling other popular all-wheel drive sports cars as Jaguar aims to expand its empire.

Convertible and Coupe

Reportedly, four-wheel drive will be offered on both Convertible and Coupe models, while an even more powerful F-Type R Convertible with all-wheel drive is also rumoured.

As well as improving the F-Type’s 0-62mph time, the addition of four-wheel drive is also expected to boost the model’s popularity in markets where cold winters negate the appeal of a rear-wheel drive car.

Other rumoured additions to the F-Type range includes a variant powered by a four-cylinder engine, which could serve as an entry-level model into the F-Type range.

Despite heavy reports, Jaguar’s official stance is that it’s all still in the rumour stage, so fans of an all-wheel drive F-Type will have to wait and see whether or not it comes to fruition.

In the meantime, the Jaguar F-Type is available to buy, priced from £51,235 for the Coupe and £58,250 for the Convertible.

Each model comes in three derivatives, powered by a choice of either V6 or V8 engines in a range of eye-popping power outputs.

One of Jaguar’s most successful new models, the F-Type has been the recipient of a range of awards since its release, including being named Top Gear’s Convertible of the Year last December.

E-Type racer

The spiritual successor to Jaguar’s legendary E-Type racer, the F-Type is included in the line-up for Jaguar’s new Heritage Driving Experience.

Designed to give visitors the opportunity to get behind the wheels of some of Jaguar’s most famous models, the experience takes place at a special 200-acre testing facility in Warwickshire.

A variety of different packages will be on offer, giving drivers the opportunity to try out models including pre- and post-war Jaguar vehicles, plus the legendary D-Type racer and high-performance F-Types.

The experience is due to open next month, while the LA Motor Show takes place from November 21st-30th.
