The new 3.0L V6 is actually a common engine throughout VW’s lineup, but its application in the U.S. Touareg is the new feature. Like its Audi cousin, the Q7 TDI, which uses the same basic engine in some configurations, the new unit turns out 240hp (179kW) and 406lb-ft (550Nm) of torque. That’s good for 8.0-second 0-60mph runs and a top speed of 133mph in European versions. U.S. specs will likely be saved for the Los Angeles Auto Show launch in November.
