The Audi Q7 3.0 TDI has been blessed with seven more horses. Grunt goes from 233 HP to 240 HP, while the oil burner's torque numbers stays the same at 398 ft-lb. However, in a neat sleight-of-hand, fuel economy has also improved, going from 22.4 to an even 24.0 US MPG. More power, more fun, more frugality -- that's a neat trifecta from the house of the four rings. The Q7 3.0 TDI will be available in the US in late 2008. For Europeans, it's on sale now for €51,200.

      great finish, too bad the race coverage was not up to par with the race itself

      The only way many people could justify an SUV purchase would be if it's a Hybrid (can you imagine fixing a Hybrid engine and drivetrain off warrenty?) or if it's a diesel.
      The Q7 seems short on looks but high on smarts.

      Dont forget about the new bluetec diesel engines which audi has been preparing for since debuting the Q7 V12TDI in Detroit. The new 2litreTDI uses urea injection and a diesel particle filter to reduce emissions but at the same time the engine will create 200 horsepower. It would help audi sell alot more cars in the U.S due to the fact that it is more frugal, more powerful and emits less Co2 than the majority of similar capacity petrol engines on the market.
