4 Things To Know About The New 2019 Audi S6

audi s6 (2)

The 2019 Audi S6 will soon be unveiled and launched, but we already know a lot of details about it, particularly how it would be more aggressive in styling and it will have a more powerful drivetrain. The upcoming S6 is an important step for Audi towards dominating this segment that Mercedes-Benz and BMW are competing over.

1. Exterior

Based on the spy shots of TopSpeed, the most important exterior styling of the S6 is the new A8-style grille, whose wider element is highlighted by the sharper edges. The grille has three horizontal bars on the upper section, three in the middle section, and on the last section. It seems to us that the S6 is heavenly influenced by the A8—the headlamps are based on the A8 and it also has a more angular design.

The headlights, in particular, are slimmer and have a more angular and wider stance. Overall, the S6 has a sportier and more aggressive look than its predecessors.

2. Interior

The insides will be very similar to the A6, though this one on the S6 is headed by the all-new 12.3-inch diagonal display that replaced the traditional and analog dials on the dashboard. The display will provide information on speed and navigation. The other display in the dash will measure 10.1 inches and will include the latest MMI system with navigation. There’s another screen below—an 8.6-inch screen that has access to climate system, text input, and many other things.

The S6 will also be roomier with improvements on rear-seat legroom, headroom, and shoulder room. The trunk space will be unchanged at 18.7 cubic feet.

3. Powertrain

The current S6 is powered by a 4.0-liter V-8, which is rated at 450 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. However, Audi’s decision to downsize some engines could impact the S6. This means that the V8 could possibly be replaced by a 2.9-liter V-6. That could crank out, at best, is 450 horses and 442 pound-feet of torque.

4. Pricing

The base model would likely be priced around $73,000 to $74,ooo, depending on the options chosen. In the United States, Volvo’s current sedan is priced at $71,900.

4 Things To Know About The 2018 Ford Expedition Drivetrain


Spy photos showed that the 2018 Ford Expedition is currently in the development stage. Traditionally, the Expedition is based on the F-150, which Ford worked tirelessly to improve. However, in recent model years, that distinction has grown distant in terms of suspension and exterior and interior styling.

On the front exterior, the spy shots revealed that the 2018 model year for the Expedition has a new look that will mirror the design styling of the current F-150 pickup. It will have that muscular chiseled look that is reminiscent of the first-ever F-150, including the numbered keypad on the driver’s side, of course.

Here are four items you should check about the 2018 Expedition based on a report from TopSpeed:

1. It Will Carry The 3.5-Liter EcoBoost

The new Expedition is bound to have the same 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine we see in the 2017 F-150 truck. Because this is the EcoBoost’s second generation, it can create bigger power with 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, which is essentially coming close to a V-8 engine. In fact, that is more than General Motor’s 6.2-liter V-8 that can be found under the hood of the Cadillac Escalade and some versions of the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.

2. It Has A 10-Speed Automatic Transmission

The engine is going to be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which was developed together with GM and is the first-ever volume-production 10-speed automatic in the world. Compared to the previous six-speed automatic transmission, this new system will deliver better performance and acceleration. The Expedition will be offered in both RWD and 4WD.

3. It Has A V-6 For A Standard Engine

According to reports, there will also be a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 for the 2018 Expedition… and it will come as a standard engine! It packs 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque. It may fall behind the 3.5-liter engine, but it would be able to handle the all-aluminum Expedition with no problem.

4. It Might Have A Turbodiesel Option

There is no confirmation yet, but it looks like Ford is working to develop a small turbodiesel option for the F-150, and we might just see this under the Expedition’s hood, too. Certainly, that would explain why the spy shots have a massive exhaust pipe.
