Prodigal Diesel: Volkswagen's TDI Touareg Returns

With low-sulfur diesel finally taking hold in the US — as of last week — VW is back-dating a bunch of 2006 V10 TDI-powered Touaregs for stateside importation. With their particulate filters in place, the Touaregs meet 2006 emissions standards, making them legal for sale. Now, Americans who'd lamented the loss of the 310-hp, 553 lbs-ft trailmonsters, and who can float the $67,750 sticker are in luck. Volkswagen's hoping for plenty of overlap in those two groups.
