IAB Report – Audi reveals new 3.0 TDI (diesel) engine with 600 Nm torque output


Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

Audi yesterday unveiled a new 3.0 TDI V6 engine at the Vienna Motor Symposium. The Clean Diesel engine is Euro 6 compliant with a displacement of 2,967 cc and a cylinder bank angle of 90 degrees.

Audi have not listed out the models the engine would go into, but the current 3.0-liter motor is used right from the A4 till the Q7, covering a wide spectrum of Audi sedans and SUVs. Skoda and Volkswagen share this engine for their bigger vehicles.

The engine would come in two specifications – 218 PS and 272 PS – and depending on the application can develop up to 600 Nm of torque.

Besides being more powerful than its predecessor, the engine is 13 percent more fuel efficient and produces 15 lesser grams of CO2/100 km.

Features in the engine include piston rings and pins optimized for minimal friction, dedicated cooling loops for the crankcase and cylinder heads, updated turbocharger and the fully variable load oil pump and a NOx storage catalytic converter combined with a diesel particulate filter and SCR injection into a single assembly.

Prof. Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG –

TDI engines are a central part of our technology mix for the mobility of tomorrow. We have continued to perfect this technology over several decades and believe there is still potential for increasingy efficiency in the future too.
