Audi’s new 2017 Audi Q7 has been revealed and will be on sale in early 2017. It will add an entry-level Q7 model with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder engine. But as the price goes down from $49,950 for a 2.0 Premium, to $5,800 is less than a 3.0 Premium, which starts at $55,750, less money comes less power. The second generation Audi Q7 was revealed for the first time in January 2015 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The diesel and petrol powered versions were released for retail sales in 2015, followed shortly by diesel-powered plug-in hybrid variant.
The 2017 Q7 may come with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4 engine that is good for a 252 horsepower and a 273 pound-feet of torque. In which it will be enough to drive the vehicle up to 60mph a full half second quicker than before. But there is news that the engine will be more efficient form the past model though it will not increase the speed. It depicts that the vehicle’s efficiency will increase by 22 percent, bumping its EPA-estimated combined fuel.
In the Q7 it has to carry about a 1200-plus pounds, not to mention the weight of cargo and potentially five adults and two kids stretched out over its three rows of seats. So it is not surprising that the fuel-economy benefit of the four-cylinder in this 5000-pound car is minimal only 1 mpg. Compared to the 3.0T’s EPA-estimated 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway where the four-banger delivers 20 mpg city and the same 25 mpg on the highway. 2017 Audi Q7 also loses 3300 pounds of towing capacity and rated at 4400 pounds.
