During a launch event for the updated version of the Volkswagen Touareg, the company showed the version powered by the 3.0L TDI V-6 with BlueTec. According to VW of America Public Relations Manager Steve Keyes, the engine which has already been shown in the Audi Q7 will turn up in additional Volkswagen models.

One car that won't get the diesel V-6 is the GTI which will remain four cylinder only. However the mid-sized Passat seems like a natural fit for the six and VW last year announced there would be a high performance Passat R36. Installing the TDI in the sport model with its near 400 lb-ft of torque would make for a quite a lively R30 TDI model that still gets great fuel economy.
