New Supercharged V6 Jaguar XF and XJ First Drive AWD Tech Demo and Review: 2013
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The newly revised Jaguar XF and XJ may look the
same for the 2013 model year but it's what under the skin that makes them
all new. First and foremost is a new super charged 3.0L that produced 340
the previous generation of both cars in the United States you can now have
your Jaguar with a V6. But perhaps what's more important to Jaguar is that
both cars now feed power to all four wheels instead of just the back two.
This means that Jaguar can directly compete with cars from other premium
brands like Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. In this exclusive TFLcar video we
are hosted by Jaguar in snowy Quebec to see just how well the newest
awl-wheel-drive Jaguar handle the snow and freezing rain of the Great White
2013 Jaguar XJ AWD debuts in a snow dome in New York
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Jaguar XJ and XJL just got a set of
sharper claws in the form of a new all-wheel-drive system. At the New York
press debut of the revamped car, Jaguar also got a Hollywood hand showing
off the luxury car with the help of two cast members from NBC's 30 Rock
sitcom. Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski added some TV star power to help
Jaguar unveil their new AWD ride.
Jaguar says that the XJ's AWD system sends power primarily to the rear
wheels but when the wheels start slipping, the XJ can send up to 50 percent
of the engine's power and torque to the front wheels. What's more the
system also pre-loads the front wheels under acceleration to help avoid
from wheel slip.
All-wheel-drive will be available on both the standard and long wheel-based
models with the base 2013 car starting at $77,575. Jaguar is also adding a
new supercharged 3.0L V-6 to the XJ's powerplant lineup that produce 340 hp
and 332 lb-ft of torque. The new engine will also be available of the XF.
Perhaps most interesting of all the new V-6 engine will come with a fuel
saving start/stop system, as well as a new ZF eight-speed automatic
2013 Lexus GX 460 Snowy Colorado Off-Road 4WD Tech Demo Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Lexus GX460 has all of the important
bits and parts to make it a truly off-road worthy ride. Not only did Toyota
bless is with full-time four-wheel-drive but the big Lexus also has a
lockable limited slip center differential and adjustable height control,
hill decent control and even the all important body on frame construction
of the Toyota 4Runner. In fact the Toyota 4Runner and the GX460 share many
of the same components and the same basic construction. In this exclusive
TFLcar video we decide to have a bit of wintery fun in the 2013 Lexus GX460
and take it off-road for a tech review to see just how well it does when
the road turns snowy, icy, rocky and very rough.
