    06 Touareg gets new engine...what about V6 Cayenne?

    While googling about the 06 Touareg I came across an unformatted document from media.vw.com. It claims to summarize all the changes to VW's 06 lineup. I've added the part about the Touareg below, since I imagine if VW offers a new engine, Porsche will eventually have to keep up.

    2006 VOLKSWAGEN CHANGE POINTS

    2006 Touareg
    - New standard engine: 3.6L VR6 with direct injection with 276 hp, a 36 hp increase over the previous VR6. (Delayed introduction)

    - Rear view camera and auxiliary multimedia connector now comes with navigation system

    - 115V outlet in cargo area replaces 12V outlet

    - Roof rack now becomes an accessory

    - Servotronic steering becomes standard on 3.6 VR6 and V8

    - Chrome replaces wood trim on transmission shift lever

    - "Tuft" carpeting replaces "Perlvelour"

    Anyway, I know most rennteamers aren't into the V6 Cayenne, but I thought this might be of interest. I suspect that the "delayed introduction" above may be to coincide with the Cayenne facelift for MY'07. And although I didn't post it here, the same document says the Passat will be getting a 3.6L V6 but won't be introduced until the 4th quarter of '06. So maybe that's when the Touareg engine will be available too. Anyone else care to speculate?

    we only get 2 cayenne models here, the Cayenne S and the Turbo, so we don't really know much about the V6

    Re: 06 Touareg gets new engine...what about V6 Cayenne?

    I read a month or two ago that the new V6 was also destined for the Cayenne.
    I would expect to see it in the Cayenne at the same time it's introduced in the Touareg, or very shortly after.
    A base VW with more hp than a base Porsche just wouldn't make any sense.

    My thoughts exactly Damien!
