The Hall Los Angeles has been the place to present the new range Jaguar F-Type . The changes reflect a richer range in mechanical options, and now we can equip our roadster or coupe with manual gearbox , but also with a new AWD system.
The Jaguar F-Type debuts a new manual transmission for V6 versions of both 340 and 380 horses, and only associated with simple traction. Depending on the brand they have worked to create a change of touch very athletic, with short runs of the lever, pear offer a touch more realistic driving. For now, we do not know if it will, it is not offered with a V8 engine.
On the other hand, it also comes AWD to the Jaguar F-Type range, as we well adelantaban weeks ago. This is a system that sends power to the rear wheels under normal adhesion. When it will be lost and electronics detects when power is sent to the front axle.
Thus Jaguar aims to welcome a new niche of customers who may live in places with difficult climates and do not want to give up a good sport. But it also seeks a customer who needs less demanding when shooting fast , and is that the F-Type is not running exactly like a docile sport.
To these developments, Jaguar adds a new electric steering replacing hydraulics. Thus manages to reduce emissions and, incidentally, be weighed. Now offers a panoramic roof series for F-Type Coupe, while the R will have a gate electric trunk.
