We already wrote about the new Q9 crossover from Audi. However, it is not going to arrive in 2018. Delay will make this model arrive probably as 2019 Audi Q9. Although we can find this car in rumors, there is a concept of this model. The Q8 SUV, which should be the biggest crossover in the family, will hold this title until Audi Q9 comes to markets. The 3-row crossover could also get some updated versions, such as SQ9 or Q9 RS. These performance-tuned models will be able to produce massive output, probably over 500, or even 600 hp. Meanwhile, the standard version will be less potent, but still powerful enough.
2019 Audi Q9 drivetrain and specs
A 3.0-liter V-6 powertrain remains the favorite option for 2019 Audi Q9. As we spoke earlier, this Turbocharged Fuel Stratified Injection engine will be capable of the US market. With low emissions, it will definitely be a better option than diesel or V-8. Furthermore, the new crossover could use a hybrid system as its main source of power. These are only options, and we still can’t say for sure what could come under the hood of Q9 SUV.
2019 Audi Q9 styling and trim levels
Most of the design solutions we will see on Q8, we will also find at 2019 Audi Q9. The bigger SUV will come after its smaller brother and will pick up many styling features. We can’t wait to see a new Audi Q8. The debut of this model will unveil plenty of details about the Q9. We suppose that the Q7 will be the base for both of them, but let’s not rush to conclusions. There is still plenty of time for changes, and only a few things we must expect from the upcoming crossover – luxury interior with the latest features and aggressive design.
2019 Audi Q9 release date and competition
The idea of 2019 Audi Q9 comes with BMW X7. This should be the main competitor to the new biggest Audi SUV. Also, there are models from Mercedes and Lexus, as other options to fans of big crossovers. The 2019 Audi Q9 will definitely come after Q8. We believe that first months of next year will host the debut of Q9.
