Although electric cars are becoming the main focus of carmakers, internal combustion engines still have plenty of time. The Ingolstadt firm is currently developing its next-generation mid-size SUV. Some reports claim that the 2024 Audi Q7 will release in the next year, with numerous updates and changes. This is the final generation of the Q7’s internal combustion engines. Everything will then be completely electric.
The three-row crossover, which is approximately eight years old, needs to be modernized. Many changes will be made to the upcoming redesign. You can expect to see new styling as well as a completely new interior design. There will be many evolutionary changes in the mechanical aspects of this vehicle. The platform, along with the majority of engines, should not be changed.
2024 Audi Q7 New Design
While this redesign will bring about many changes, many of these will change as well, just like we said. This is particularly true for mechanics. All of Audi’s vehicles will soon be electrified. It is therefore not necessary to create a new platform for ICE cars. Instead, the new Audi Q7 2024 will continue to ride on an old MLB platform. However, we will continue to see updates.
The new model will have many improvements mechanically. Two of the most important aspects to consider are the chassis and suspension setup. All models will have air suspension again. This will improve the ride quality.
The current model is just eight years old. We are confident that the German company will create a more attractive design. Audi designers will once again combine elegant and conservative design solutions, as they have done with many of their models. The general shape of the model shouldn’t change, and the next generation should look the same as the current. The Q7’s current length is 117.9 inches and its wheelbase is nearly 199 inches. It measures 77.5 in width by 68.5 in height.
This SUV’s interior is just as modern as its exterior. The SUV’s many high-quality materials and tech features make it very competitive. We don’t expect any major changes. Audi will continue to use conservative aesthetics. This combination is great when paired with high-tech goodies that should be more prevalent at this time.
New tech features, new materials, and new aesthetics are expected to be part of the new model. The fact that the exterior dimensions of the new model won’t change much suggests the same passenger space. The new Q7 will also be available with a three-row configuration.
The third row, which is primarily for children, will likely be very tight. The first and second rows will be more spacious and comfortable. The current generation is strong in many areas but its cargo space is the least in this segment. We expect improvements in this area with the new model.
As we already mentioned, this will be the last Q7 with internal combustion engines. The majority of existing powertrain options will be available. They will most likely be equipped with mild hybrids, which will improve efficiency and driving dynamics. The 2.0-liter turbo four produces 261 horsepower. Base modes should be available. The 3.0-liter V6 should be offered. We wouldn’t be surprised if the 3.0-liter V6 offered slightly more power than 335 horses.
There are still a few plug-in hybrid models and the twin-turbo 4.0-liter engine. The plug-in hybrid system is not expected to undergo major modifications. We will probably update it. This system is currently available in two versions, one based on a 3.0-liter V6 engine. The most powerful version produces 376 horsepower, while the other produces about 450 horses. All units include an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The current Q7, which was launched in December 2014 on the second-generation modular longitude platform (MLB Evo), was the first Audi model built. Audi will likely optimize costs and transfer the platform to the third-generation Q7. All variants of the next-gen Q7 will be equipped with electrification. The practical EV range of plug-in hybrids is greater than 50 miles (80km) on the WLTP cycle. BMW’s X5 xDrive45e boasts this – 55 mi (88km), while Q7 customers (Q7-60 TFSI e), only have 25 miles (40 km) of zero-emissions range. All range figures are WLTP.
European Euro 7 emission standards would be required for the engines of the next-generation Audi Q7. Audi engineers might instead of creating Euro 7 V8 engines that are more performance-oriented but may modify V6 engines to improve electric power and torque. Audi CEO Markus Duesmann has said that its final internal combustion engine would be the best and will make its way into its Q7. The basic and mid-range models will likely feature V6 or inline-four engines with mild hybrid technology at 48 volts.
The next generation Q7 plug-in hybrid could use one of Audi’s most recent internal combustion engines. Oliver Hoffmann, a member of the BoM responsible for Technical Development Audi, spoke about these engines at the Audi Annual Media Conference on March 17, 2022. He said that the new engines won’t arrive until 2025. The next-generation Q7 or Q7 PHEV could adopt the new engines later in their lives.
2024 Audi Q7 Release Date and Price
The 2024 Audi Q7 will arrive in the second quarter of 2023. The current model costs 60.000 dollars. The next generation of the model will be slightly more expensive. The competition will remain largely unchanged, mainly because of German competitors like the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE.
