Hi guys,


Back on board again since 2014 got my Rok and LOVE IT however for the new van it does not have enough power so coming back to the best car around for the $$$$$$$$
Just wondering if anyone has heard any rumours of a NEW R Line V8 coming out in 2017 or 2018.


I know the V6 is on the way but have also been hearing that VW are no longer going to produce a V8.


For my Van I need a LOT of grunt.


I though I would throw it out there as so many of you worldwide hear things that the general populace never get to know until it is on top of you.


Tez :laugh:

Unsure if there will be a v8 in future.
I could be selling mine in 2 yrs so you could have that :)

OMG surely not. They've only just started them!!! (BTW does anyone know how many V8 Diesel Touaregs have been sold in Oz so far?)

Is not the twin turbo 3.0 ltr V6 TDI the replacement engine? I thought the V8 TDI did not meet Euro 6 specs.

Yeah that's what I heard too however someone somewhere said that was the V10.

God I hope they don't I am going to be in deep sh*t if they do

At the very least that will have to be a tree for each cylinder just in case VW are fiddling the emissions yet again!

new van

Why Tezza
Getting a new van in 2018 for my retirement and intend to travel this great land of ours.

28ft going to need a load of power to pull this thing. a V6 will do it but I would rather have more than just adequate

Phoned VWA this morning and directly asked the question;


Whilst the chap (very nice young man) could not answer me directly he did say there would be an announcement in Q2 of 2017
Seems promising in this case. I would assume if this being the case they will use the Q7 engine.


Roll on May 2017 just in time for my Birthday :)

Yep v6 is good but always good to have more grunt!
Hopefully they will have a v8, if not then a current model should be available, even if slightly used

Just read a short write up on the 2017 SQ7 (sorry cant remember where). It has a 4L Tri Turbo Diesel with outputs above the 4.2.
