Volkswagen VR6 Engine Previewed in Design Vision GTI

Volkswagen’s VR6 engine will continue into another generation despite past rumors that suggested otherwise.

The German maker is previewing the engine in its Design Vision GTI concept, which it unveiled with 503 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. While the production version won’t make that much power, LeftLane News reports that the engine will continue, citing an anonymous company source.

It isn’t clear if the engine will power another Golf VR6, but the engine will likely power some of the brand’s larger nameplates including the Touareg, CC and Passat.

Previous reports suggested that the VR6 would be axed because of increasingly strict emissions standards in favor of the turbocharged five-cylinder unit Audi uses.
