Audi Q5: Coming with new 7-speed S tronic

Audi Quattro Coupe Concept
The new Audi Q5 which is expected for next month will come with the new 7-speed S tronic, although our source talks about DSG which is wrong.
While there's no new information about the Porsche, Audi's Q5 will be revealed packing the new seven-speed dual-clutch S-tronic gearbox mated to a longitudinal engine. The real benefit of the new DL500 transmission is that it can handle torque output up to 405 lb.-ft. and engine revs of 8,500 rpm. The new tranny will disseminate throughout the rest of the Audi lineup in coming years, first in Quattro models, including the new A4, and then on down to the automaker's front-wheel-drive models.
