Insiders report the Audi A6 Allroad will be marketed in the Unites States.
So, it goes to join the RS6 Avant, whose return has been already announced.
Audi launched a new fourth generation and a 20th Anniversary Edition of the A6 Allroad wagon in Europe in 2019. Those cars received a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder V engine with three power options, the high-end one produces 344 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
The Audi A6 Allroad for the United States will hardly use diesels, but a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 taken from the Audi A6 sedan will very likely be. This mill makes 335 hp and 369 lb-ft through a 7-speed S-tronic transmission. Expect a 48V mild-hybrid system too, as it is installed in many Audi models.
What are the Audi A6 Allroad’s chances in America? Good, indeed, Audi USA believes, given a relative success of the A4 Allroad. When arrives, the A6 wagon will meet a strong rival on the market to battle against – the Volvo V90 Cross Country.
The last-mentioned should reach the USA in spring 2020. The Four Rings intends to double sales of its hot models by 2023.
