F-Type Gains AWD, Manual Transmission
Nov 19, 2014 - 11:55 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
As if Jaguar’s F-Type sports car wasn’t already thrilling enough, the British bad boy of luxury cars is making things even more enticing.

In 2014, Jaguar gave us the F-Type Roadster. Last year, a sexy-coupe was added along with an even more powerful R model. This year, Jaguar is at it again adding new models and new choices, the biggest of which are all-wheel drive and a manual transmission.
The F-Type is finally about to be available with a stick, but hold your enthusiasm because it’s only available with the supercharged V6 engine.
Still, being able to row-your-own gears through a ZF six-speed manual transmission is pretty good when you’re talking about a blown V6 with either 340 or 380 hp.
It features a short-throw gear shifter that only travels 1.77 inches. Jaguar claims the ratios are closely spaced and that the pedals are placed for optimal heel-toe shifting. And to keep with the purity of a manual transmission, the six-speed uses rod linkage for a more direct connection between the gear lever and the transmission’s forks.

F-Type All-Wheel Drive

For 2016, all V8 F-Types will come standard with AWD, including the V8 R Coupe. The F-Type Roadster also receives AWD, but the changes don’t stop there. The V8 S Roadster is now dead, replaced by a V8 R Roadster. That means all V8 F-Types are now powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 making 550 HP and 502 lb-ft., sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic.
Yes, the V8 F-Type is still only available with an automatic, but it’s good enough to propel either the coupe or roadster from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.9 seconds. Top speed is limited to 186 MPH. All-wheel drive will also be offered as an option on the more powerful of the supercharged V6 F-Type, the S Coupe and Convertible. Like the V8, V6 AWD models will only be available with the eight-speed automatic.

The all-wheel drive system sends 100 percent of the engines power rearward until slippage is detected. Upwards of 50 percent of the power can be sent to the front wheels for better traction. This also applies to cornering as more power will be sent to the front wheels if the F-Type begins to oversteer or more can be sent back to the rear wheels with the car begins to understeer. All F-Types now come with torque-vectoring braking for better cornering as well.
Like most AWD systems, Jaguar’s features programmable modes through what the company calls “Intelligent Driveline Dynamics.” The rear differential, center coupling and stability control systems can be cycled through normal, rain/ice/snow and dynamic modes.
The new F-Type with AWD should be easily identifiable thanks to unique styling changes for 2016. The hood has been reshaped and the dual vents are placed further apart and more forward than other

The Official SEMA Show After Party, And Everyone's Invited.
Oct 17, 2014 - 12:31 PM - by AutoGuide.com

There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of the week to watch the cars exiting. Additionally, the "best of show" awards will be given out during a televised presentation as part of the Ignited event. A proud sponsor of SEMA Ignited, AutoGuide will be on hand to capture all the action.
