The war of luxury SUV’s has reached new heights thanks to Audi’s new Q8. It was formally launched in a press release by Audi USA last night. The conservative styling of the Q3 and Q7 is gone. They are still viable options for those who want a midsize model, but this Q8 is downright mean looking.
Under the hood is an all-new 3.0 liter V6. It uses the same turbo technology as other Audis, with twins nestled in the hot-side, with reverse flow cylinder heads.
It offers 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque through an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic. Standard equipment includes the 48-volt mild hybrid system. It stores energy when braking to help boost acceleration.
The Torsen mechanical center differential is locked a 40:60 torque split front to rear. This combines the best in new technology with traditional quattro performance. If you need more information, click the link below and stay with us for all your Audi news.
