Now that the new 2020 Audi A6 Allroad has been revealed, it looks like it will be the best iteration of an Allroad yet. It’s more luxurious and more capable than ever, while also looking better than any other Allroad before it. However, there’s been no official word that the new A6 Allroad will be making it to the US market, it seems that Audi is still mulling over the idea.
According to this new report from Car and Driver, Audi execs are still debating on whether or not to sell the Audi A6 Allroad here in America. We haven’t had an A6 Allroad in America since the C5-generation car, which had a pretty rough reputation for reliability, or lack thereof. There’s been the A4 Allroad here but not the bigger, more luxurious A6 version since the C5.
It seems as if Audi is debating on the entire line of Audi A6 wagons, be it the Avant or Allroad. We’ve heard rumors that the Audi A6 Avant, and even the RS6 Avant, will be making its way to the US market. If Audi is to bring an A6 wagon here, we hope the Avant is prioritized over the Allroad but, to be honest, that’s not likely. Us ‘Mericans love off-road ability, even if it’s just perceived off-road ability and not actual capability. So Allroads are quite popular here.
In Europe, the Audi A6 Allroad will only get diesel engines, versions of the 3.0 liter TDI V6 engine to be exact. However, if it does make its way ‘Stateside, it will certainly get an engine switch, likely to the brand’s 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 gasoline engine, the same one that’s in the Audi A6 sedan. That would likely give it 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. It’s a good engine, if a bit laggy.
Only time well tell but we hope Audi at least brings the A6 Allroad here. Sure, it’d be nicer if the A6 Avant made its way here but we’ll take the Allroad if it’s all we can get.
