We like diesels. They're torquey. They get great gas mileage. They sound hella cool. But it also has a bad reputation in America for being dirty and stinky.
Modern diesel is much better than those outdated stereotypes and Audi knows that. They're probably the diesel's biggest advocates in the USA, and now they're putting their money where their mouth is: Audi is bringing a ton of diesels to America in 2013.
The A6, A7, A8, Q5, and Q7 will all be getting Audi's 3.0 liter TDI V6 with 240 horsepower and a stump pulling 406 pound feet of torque.
The updated Q7 TDI is now on sale as a 2013 model, and the other four will be available in early 2013 as 2014 models. Now let's just hope they sell them and make Americans accept diesel.
