Audi S4, Audi A6: More details about the upcoming 3.0 V6 TFSI

3.0 V6 TFSI
We found some more details about the upcoming 3.0 V6 TFSI engine which will power the Audi S4 and will be featured in the Audi A6 as well.

The 3.0-litre, direct-injection unit produces 286bhp at 4850rpm, and 310lb ft torque at 2500rpm. It’ll be known as the 3.0-litre TFSI, even though the ‘T’ traditionally stands for ‘turbo’.

The new engine uses an Eaton supercharger and has an air-to-air intercooler rather than a water-to-air unit.

Speculation was rife that Audi would fit its 3.2-litre V6 with twin turbos in an effort to rival BMW’s similarly specified 3.0-litre unit, which has just won Engine of the Year for the second year in succession. But the Ingolstadt engineers decided that the increasing weight of cars demanded a solution promising greater torque at low revs.
