2017 Audi A4 Diesel in America!
The 2017 Audi A4 is coming to the United States with two engine options. Aside from the fact that the 2017 A4 is a brand new car, since this is the next generation of the famous German sedan, there’s something else that’s new and worth mentioning.
Namely, the 2017 model year will bring the very first diesel Audi A4 in the U.S. The automaker revealed to Motor Authority the engines they planned for the U.S.-spec 2017 Audi A4.
252-hp Gasoline TFSI Mill
The gasoline engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder that delivers 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of twist. This is a great engine that’s probably going to be neglected because of the big news: the very first diesel engine under the hood of an A4.
2017 Audi A4 Diesel Engine
This diesel is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, but it has slightly different power output. It generates 190 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Its torque might be a bit surprising since this is a diesel engine, a mill that’s expected to deliver hundreds of pound-feet.
Quattro All-Wheel Drive & Front-Wheel Drive
When the sales begin, the 2017 Audi A4 will be offered with Quattro all-wheel drive no matter the engine. And after the first models leave the showrooms, we can expect front-wheel drive versions to arrive during the next year.
S Tronic Transmission
Every single of the four possible engine-drive combinations will have a seven-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch gearbox. The 2017 Audi A4 won’t be sentenced to a CVT, so the S-Tronic is going to be the only transmission available.
2017 Audi A4 Release Date
The 2017 Audi A4 will be launched in America next March. That’s when the first units with diesel and gasoline engines and Quattro all-wheel drive will be on sale, but if you want a conventional front-wheel drive, you have to wait a little bit longer. The performance version will probably be released as 2018 Audi S4, sometime during 2017.
