Arrow VW Touareg R50 is The Ultimate Diesel SUV

VW Touareg R50 is The Ultimate Diesel SUV

The 5.0-liter V10 TDI is the range topping engine for high-end Volkswagens like the Touareg and in Europe, the Phaeton. Rich in both power and torque, it makes for a truly unique flagship engine. The 310 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque it produces might be enough to satisfy most, but for the performance SUV connoisseur, this is more sufficient than sublime. Volkswagen's engineers have cured this "problem" in the new performance Touareg R50 by tweaking the engine to up its horsepower and torque outputs. These gains equate to 35 horsepower and 73 lb-ft of torque, bringing the total up to 345 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, which should help things out for this hauling 'ute.

The enhanced engine allows the Touareg R50 to sprint to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds, which is a concerted improvement over the regular V10 TDI's 7.3
