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. When driving conditions are normal in Paradise Valley, 90% of the engine’s power is sent to the rear wheels – which can go up to as much as 100% with full acceleration on a dry surface. However, when additional traction or torque is needed up front, the system automatically transfers the exact amount required to handle the situation at hand. 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. In fact, the IDD system contains advanced algorithms to determine if the car is headed for traction loss and which wheels will be affected. And the moment a prediction is made, the system transfers torque to the wheels that need it most for better grip and control. What’s more, 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
