Audi confirms A6 Allroad's return to US
The rugged wagon is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Confirming recent rumors, Audi has announced plans to bring the A6 Allroad back to America after a 15-year absence.
Like the original A6 Allroad that arrived on the market for the 2000 model year, the 2020 edition features adaptive air suspension that can be adjusted to ride 1.8 inches higher than the standard A6 for a total ground clearance of 7.3 inches. When descending on loose surfaces, a special ABS function is designed to create an additional braking wedge in front of the wheels, while the vehicle's tilt angles are displayed on the MMI monitor.
For a more connected driving experience on paved roads, drivers can engage the 'dynamic' setting that drops the ground clearance to 4.9 inches. The mode is also configured with a heavier steering feel and a more responsive throttle mapping.
The A6 Allroad is powered by Audi's 3.0-liter turbocharged engine and a mild-hybrid system, delivering 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and standard Quattro all-wheel drive.
The rugged wagon will be available with an Anniversary Edition clad in an exclusive Gavial Green color scheme, with Sarder brown Valcona leather and Nappa accents inside.
The company has not yet announced US pricing or a specific launch date for the 2020 A6 Allroad.
