2010 Audi Q7 U.S. Pricing Released

German carmaker Audi has just announced availability and pricing for the redesigned 2010 Q7 models, unveiled some four months ago. The new models, scheduled to arrive in U.S. dealerships in September 2009, feature several upgrades over its predecessor, including styling enhancements and improved engines.

But to get straight to the point, the lowest priced version in the 2010 Audi Q7 lineup is  the 3.6 quattro model which has an MSRP of $46,900, followed by the TDI model with an MSRP of $50,900 and on to the top priced model, the 4.2 quattro with an MSRP of $61,000.

As we said in a previous report, the 2010 Q7 doesn’t bring too many exterior improvements, except for the slightly restyled grille with chrome accents, new wheels, redesigned bumpers and minor modifications to the side sills. The Q7 SUVs now offer standard LED taillights with available LED turn signals and daytime running lights.

Moreover, Audi differentiated the models with the help of the body scheme and brought contrast paint on the Q7 3.6 quattro, full body paint with Chrome package on the Q7 TDI quattro clean diesel, and S line treatment on the Q7 4.2 quattro.

As for the interior enhancements, the 2010 Q7 lineup includes optional ventilated front seats, a new decorative inlay on the passenger side of the dashboard, additional ambient lighting on all four doors, an upgraded MMI system, additional interior chrome accents, and a new instrument cluster.

Moving on to the powertrain details, the Q7 3.6 quattro comes equipped with the V6 3.6 FSI engine, the Q7 TDI quattro comes with the 3.0 TDI clean diesel engine, while the Q7 4.2 employs the V8 4.2 FSI engine.

Technical improvements have also been brought to the upgraded Q7 models that now feature 3G MMI (Multi Media Interface) with automotive grade NVIDIA chip for graphics processing, along with SIRIUS traffic and joystick control.
