2014 Audi A8 L TDI US pricing announced

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 3, 2013

Audi has revealed the pricing and fuel economy figures for the 2014 A8 L TDI sedan. The A8 is one of four Audi models that will get a diesel option for the 2014 model year. The others are the Q5, A6 and A7. When the A8 L TDI arrives at the market in the spring, it will be priced from $83,395 (including destination costs).

This slots the oil-burner below the $88,095 4.0L twin-turbo V8 model but higher than the $79,395 3.0L supercharged V6 variant in the long-wheelbase A8 lineup.

The A8 L TDI has a 24/36 city/highway mpg EPA rating, making it much more efficient than any of the gasoline-powered options. In addition, its fuel economy will be better than the rating of the only other diesel full-size luxury sedan offered in the U.S. -- the Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTEC 4MATIC with a rating of 21/31 mpg.

The A8 L TDI attains its excellent mileage via a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 that partners with an eight-speed automatic and delivers 240hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all the four wheels through Audi’s Quattro AWD system. With this setup, the car can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds. Audi said that there are presently no plans yet to introduce a normal-wheelbase A8 diesel.
