According to Leftlane news, Audi will bring a 3.0L TDI clean diesel to the U.S. market in 2008. The first vehicle will be the Q7 and then the all new A4. No time frame was announced, just 2008.
Output for the 3.0L TDI V6 is rated at 240 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. Despite all that power, Audi claims the new engine is 35% more efficient than a comparable gasoline engine and can get up to 40 mpg highway. The engine is also clean enough to earn it certification in all 50 states.
