Learn about VW Engines : 3.0L V6 TDI

Monday, October 28th, 2013

V6 TDI BlueMotion Clean Diesel

This 3.0 litre turbocharged engine was originally designed for Audi, first appearing in the 2004 A8, and later adapted for Volkswagen’s Phaeton and Touareg. The V6 TDI excels in three departments: power, fuel efficiency, and cleanliness. Power (406 lb-ft of torque!) is thanks to the fuel’s ultra-high injection pressure and the recycling of exhaust gases by the turbocharger. Efficiency is via the engine’s diesel fuel, which harbours more usable energy pound-for-pound than gasoline. In fact, diesel is one of the most energy-dense fuels out there. Finally, the engine’s cleanliness is thanks to the vehicle’s particulate filter, which cuts the “soot” emitted by diesel engines by 90%. The V6 TDI also comes paired with AdBlue, a harmless solution that is sprayed on the exhaust gas to significantly reduce the emission of nitrogen oxides. The result is a clean, quiet, exhilarating driving experience that requires significantly fewer stops at the gas station. The 3.0L V6 TDI can be found in the 2013/2014 Touareg TDI Clean Diesel.

The numbers that matter:

  • Cylinders: 6 cylinders (V formation)
  • Displacement: 3.0 liters (2967 cc)
  • Horsepower: 237 hp (4000 – 4400 rpm)
  • Torque: 406 lb-ft (2000 – 2250 rpm)
  • Fuel economy (for Touareg TDI): 11.2 L/100 km (city); 6.8 L/100 km (highway)

2.0L TSI

The 2.0 liter TSI (turbo straight injection) 4-cylinder engine was designed with the goal of extracting as much performance from as little displacement as possible. Specifically, torque was high on the priority list. The TSI’s method of injecting a precise amount of fuel directly into the combustion chamber using a very high pressure results in a broad, flat torque band across the entire rev range. Coupled with an intercooled turbocharger, the engine responds and feels more like a larger displacement 6-cylinder engine, while retaining the excellent fuel economy and lower emissions of a small displacement 4-cylinder engine. It has won numerous engine awards, including International Engine of the Year (1.8-2.0L) four years running, and has found its way into an array of Volkswagen models, including the GTI, Tiguan, Passat, CC, Eos and Jetta, as well as Audi’s A3, A4 and A5.
