2011 model year changes
The Audi Q7 returns for 2011 with some important changes. Chief among them, the 3.6L V6 and 4.2L V8 have been replaced by a supercharged 3.0L supercharged V6, which comes in two distinct flavors. The low-output unit produces 272 hp and 295 lb-feet of torque, while the high-output engine puts out 333 hp and 325 lb-feet. That engine is also found in the high-performance S4 and is enough to propel Q7s so equipped from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds, with a top speed of 151 mph. EPA estimate fuel economy for both engines is 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. All this new power is delivered to the quattro all-wheel-drive system through a new 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission with Dynamic Shift Program (DSP).
Excellent multimedia interface; two new, more efficient gasoline engines, available TDI clean diesel engine option; luxurious interior amenities; excellent handling
Special features for 2011
The Q7 packs a lot of safety and luxury features into a large SUV. It's longer than almost any other luxury SUV (only the Mercedes-Benz GL beats it by a half inch), with lots of room for seven passengers in comfy leather seats. The NHTSA bestowed a 5-star crash-test rating on the Q7, and the IIHS granted it "Top Safety Pick" status. Opting for the TDI clean diesel engine adds extra value in the form of fuel economy, with 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
Audi's flagship crossover vehicle, the 2011 Q7 appears unchanged from the outside, but has actually been the recipient of a major overhaul. Dropping the normally-aspirated 3.2 liter V-6 as well as the 4.2 liter V-8 engine from the lineup, the 2011 Audi Q7 has resorted to two supercharged V-6 engine choices. Two power levels of a 3-liter supercharged V-6, the engine is available with either 272 horsepower or 333 horsepower through an S line Prestige model (similar to the powerplant inside the Audi S4). The 2011 Audi Q7 continues to be offered with a 3-liter, 225 horsepower turbodiesel engine. Apart from the powerplant, the 2011 Audi Q7 also presents a considerably upgraded 7-passenger interior. Adding some optional features to standard equipment, all 2011 Audi Q7 crossovers arrive with cabins sporting 12-way power adjusting front seats, ambient LED lighting, Bluetooth connectivity, and Sirius satellite radio. Both Premium as well as Premium Plus trim levels are available with Q7 both engines choices, but a S Line Prestige is exclusive to the 3-liter powerplant and a Prestige model is found for the Audi Q7 turbodiesel.
