What is Instinctive All-Wheel Drive?

Jaguar XJ

Jaguar created the Instinctive All-Wheel Drive system, which continuously monitors driving and road conditions, and then adjusts torque and wheels to optimize traction and handling. According to Jaguar, “The available all-wheel-drive system employs active power-transfer technology for enhanced traction while retaining the sporty agility and steering feel of a rear-wheel-drive car. On the move, this intelligent system is designed to continuously monitor driving and road conditions to optimize traction and handling balance by seamlessly distributing torque between the front and rear wheels. The system can even act preemptively to help ensure the best possible grip in a variety of conditions.”

What’s the Point?

Any Greenwich driver knows that varying road and weather conditions can force you to lose control of your vehicle, even for a second. Since this split second can cause collisions, Jaguar designed a way to provide added security to its drivers. With Instinctive All-Wheel Drive, the vehicle automatically senses driver inputs, vehicle speed, steering angle, and braking to maximize traction and control. What makes this even more impressive is that it still gives the feeling of rear wheel control, making your movements still fluid, even though retaining supreme handling.

Jaguar engineers worked tirelessly to create this innovation that will change the way you explore the New Canaan roads behind the wheel of a Jaguar model. Couple this feature with other safety equipment from Jaguar, such as a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, park assist, lane change assist, and more, and you have a vehicle that wants to ensure you and your passengers are always safe every time you travel.
