2017 Audi Q7 Adds 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 to Lineup

New engine lowers Q7 MSRP by almost $6,000

The 2017 Audi Q7 will gain a 2.0-liter turbo-four early next year, adding a second engine to its lineup and significantly lowering the price of entry for the three-row luxury crossover.

Already featured in other Audi models, the 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 will make 252 hp and 273 lb-ft in the 2017 Q7. It'll be mated to an eight-speed automatic with standard Quattro all-wheel drive. This will be the first time a four-cylinder has been offered for the Q7 and Audi claims it'll be half a second quicker to 60 mph than the previous-generation base model Q7. That Q7 was powered by a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 making 280 hp and 295 lb-ft and ran from 0-60 mph in an estimated 7.7 seconds.

Audi says it'll be more fuel-efficient as well, with an EPA-estimated 22 mpg combined, compared to 18 mpg combined for the last-gen base Q7 (official EPA numbers to come later).

Additionally, the Q7 2.0T will be much cheaper than the Q7 3.0T Quattro featuring a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 (333 hp and 325 lb-ft). Audi says the Q7 2.0T will start at $49,950 (including destination), which is $5,800 less than the Q7 3.0T. That also undercuts many of its three-row competitors including the cheapest BMW X5 with third row option ($59,645) and Mercedes-Benz GLS ($68,700), though it's still more expensive than the popular Infiniti QX60 ($45,895). Audi says the 2017 Q7 2.0T will reach showrooms early next year and will offer most of the same standard and optional equipment found in the Q7 3.0T.
