Jaguar Instinctive All-Wheel Drive

Jaguar is renowned for ultimate handling thanks to its rear-wheel drive setups, which is why the automaker finds it important to retain this control, even with Jaguar Instinctive All-Wheel Drive. Here is how this performance feature works:

  • When driving conditions are normal in Paradise Valley or Phoenix, 90% of the engine’s power is sent to the rear wheels.
  • With full acceleration on a dry surface, it can go up to as much as 100% power to the rear wheels.
  • If additional traction or torque is needed up front, the system automatically transfers the exact amount of power required to the front wheels to regain traction and stability.
  • When conditions normalize again, power returns to the rear wheels.

Intelligent Driveline Dynamics

A major component of Jaguar Instinctive All-Wheel Drive is Intelligent Driveline Dynamics. This technology is able to predict traction loss, rather than react to it:

  • The IDD system contains advanced algorithms to determine if the car is headed for traction loss and which wheels will be affected.
  • The moment a prediction is made, the system transfers torque to the wheels that need it most for better grip and control.
  • Jaguar Instinctive All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics is always activated to continuously monitor where power is needed.

System Integration

Jaguar Instinctive All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics works in conjunction with other Jaguar performance systems, such as:

  • Anti-lock Braking System
  • Electronic Stability Program
  • Torque Vectoring by Braking
  • Adaptive Surface Response, which distinguishes between different traction surfaces like mud, ice, gravel, and snow
