2014 Audi Q5 to Get 3.0-Liter V6 Diesel

2014 Audi Q5 to Get 3.0-Liter V6 Diesel

Next year, Audi will be adding a Q5 TDI to its American SUV lineup, featuring a 3.0-liter V6 diesel powerplant with 245-hp and 428 lb-ft of torque.

In its current model year, the Audi Q5 comes with three engine choices: a 2.0-liter turbo-four (211-hp, 258 lb-ft of torque), a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 (272-hp, 295 lb-ft of torque), and a hybrid 2.0-liter turbo-four with a 44-hp electric motor to pump out 208-hp combined.

The V6 diesel engine is the same powerplant found in the European SQ5 TDI model, though we’ll be seeing a detuned variant since the European-spec engine has 313-hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. The German automaker estimates that the diesel Q5 will hit 60-mph in less than 6.5 seconds and based on the European cycle will get around 37-mpg. EPA figures will be less, which won’t be released until the model is closer to hitting showrooms next summer.

    The diesel will only add to the cars popularity and gives Audi a chance to battle the MB GLK 250 Blutec coming as well early next year.  The comparos will be interesting.    Are you listening Mazda…..

    I’m from the UK and after living in the USA for 8 years now, I’m amazed how it’s only now in teh last few years that the major European automakers are bringing their diesels to North America. I was driving a BMW 325 TD back in 1995, it was quick, quiet and more importantly delivered 38mpg everyday. Today’s diesel technology is fabulous, try one you’ll be pleasantly surprised just how good they are!
