Audi's flagship crossover vehicle, the 2011 Q7 appears unchanged from the outside, but has actually been the recipient of a major overhaul. Dropping the normally-aspirated 3.2 liter V-6 as well as the 4.2 liter V-8 engine from the lineup, the 2011 Audi Q7 has resorted to two supercharged V-6 engine choices. Two power levels of a 3-liter supercharged V-6, the engine is available with either 272 horsepower or 333 horsepower through an S line Prestige model (similar to the powerplant inside the Audi S4). The 2011 Audi Q7 continues to be offered with a 3-liter, 225 horsepower turbodiesel engine. Apart from the powerplant, the 2011 Audi Q7 also presents a considerably upgraded 7-passenger interior. Adding some optional features to standard equipment, all 2011 Audi Q7 crossovers arrive with cabins sporting 12-way power adjusting front seats, ambient LED lighting, Bluetooth connectivity, and Sirius satellite radio. Both Premium as well as Premium Plus trim levels are available with Q7 both engines choices, but a S Line Prestige is exclusive to the 3-liter powerplant and a Prestige model is found for the Audi Q7 turbodiesel.
The Q7 packs a lot of safety and luxury features into a large SUV. It's longer than almost any other luxury SUV (only the Mercedes-Benz GL beats it by a half inch), with lots of room for seven passengers in comfy leather seats. The NHTSA bestowed a 5-star crash-test rating on the Q7, and the IIHS granted it 'Top Safety Pick' status. Opting for the TDI clean diesel engine adds extra value in the form of fuel economy, with 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
The Audi Q7 returns for 2011 with some important changes. Chief among them, the 3.6L V6 and 4.2L V8 have been replaced by a supercharged 3.0L supercharged V6, which comes in two distinct flavors. The low-output unit produces 272 hp and 295 lb-feet of torque, while the high-output engine puts out 333 hp and 325 lb-feet. That engine is also found in the high-performance S4 and is enough to propel Q7s so equipped from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds, with a top speed of 151 mph. EPA estimate fuel economy for both engines is 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.
For 2011, Audi has shifted things around under the hood of its Q7 SUV. Gone are the 3.6-liter V6 and 4.2-liter V8 gasoline engines and in their place is a new 3.0-liter V6, which comes in two different states of tune. The base engine delivers 272 hp and 295 ft-lb of torque, while the high-output variant produces 333 hp and 325 lb-feet. The third powerplant in the Q7 lineup carries over from last year: a 225-hp, 3.0-liter clean diesel TDI V6 with AdBlue to scrub the exhaust of even more particulates before it disperses into the air. All Q7 models benefit from Audi's new 8-speed Tiptronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. The high-performance gas V6 model comes equipped with adaptive air suspension.
