VW Arteon 6-Cylinder In The Process!!

Now.. this proposes a difficult decision for me. But.. Let me at least tell you about it first.

VW has confirmed that they are in fact working on a V6 variant of the VW Arteon and it's actually already being tested on the down-lo.

Not 100% sure which 6-cylinder it'll be, but it's possible that it's the V6 3.6L that is utilized in the VW Atlas as it is a more modern rendition of engine their providing to the market.

276hp @6200rpm
266lb-ft @2750rpm

That low end torque on something like the Arteon which will be notably lighter than the Atlas means some serious get up and go. But I'm also anticipating that they'd utilize the AWD system which will make putting the power to the asphalt effortless but it'll definitely throw you back in the seat a fair bit.

Surprised it wasnt a smaller displacement 6-cylinder engine unless you have your facts wrong. Sharing your source here would help with that. Also, VW has made smaller 3.0 6-cylinder engines in the past.

I'll see if I can try and re-find the articles I was reading, but there definitely aren't any facts present in that original post as it says "it's possible"

What did those 3.0L produce? How long ago where they being used?
