New Midsized Diesel SUVs planned for the USA Market

New Midsized Diesel SUVs planned for the USA Market

The USA market is poised for the introduction of two new midsized diesel SUV's. Two new possible entries into the market from Volkswagen and Audi look promising. 2007? 2008? Later?

Audi USA will introduce to market a TDI in the Q7 model sometime in 2008. This TDI engine will be a mid-sized 3.0L engine that shows that Audi is not only committed to the USA market, but also shows strong technology as a consumer diesel engine manufacturer. If the USA version is anything close to the 3.0 TDI offerings across the pond, we can expect to see a potent 3.0 V6 TDI engine that delivers 233 HP and 368 lb-ft of neck snapping torque. A premium for this vehicle can be expected and we will share more information as it becomes available.
