  • Audi may release the SQ7 with a TDI engine in the US!

The Audi USA spokesperson stated that the SQ7 is still not confirmed for the US, but they are optimistic.

When the new Audi SQ7 TDI was released it made quite an impression on the auto community. Many in the US wondered if they will ever reach their shores.

Now it seems the Audi SQ7 may actually make its way to North America. The Audi USA spokesman Mark Dahncke recently gave out a statement to AutoBlog which gives some hope.

According to Dahncke, the SQ7 is not officially signed off for the US, but they are optimistic. Even though it is not an official confirmation the words still gave way to encouragement. 

The new Audi SQ7 TDI can be best described as a technological tour de force. The Audi SQ7 features a 4.0-liter V8 diesel engine, which is augmented by two turbochargers.

Similarly an electric compressor is also added to the mix. All in all the SQ7 is capable of producing a massive 435 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque.

The SQ7 also features a new 48-volt electrical system which powers one of the compressors. The SQ7 also features an eight-speed automatic transmission. Similarly a four-wheel steering system and all-wheel drive have been added. 

If the SQ7 does come to America, then the next question is whether it will retain the diesel engine or switch to something else.

The SQ7 could have a powerful engine burning gasoline but Dahncke stated if the SQ7 comes here it will still be a TDI. Since the VW diesel emissions scandal is still fresh the move for a SSQ7 TDI for American market may be bold.
