Model Preview

Audi recently announced that many of the 2023 model year vehicles are going to be receiving upgrades. On the list is the Q8, which isn’t surprising, considering it’s the automaker’s flagship SUV. Audi has stated that the newest Q8 will provide a balance of spaciousness, performance, and design.

The updates available will depend on the model, trim level, and package chosen by the consumers, however, so not every new feature will apply to all models. The Q8 and SQ8, for example, have HD Matrix-design LED headlights, headlight washers, and welcome/goodbye headlight and taillight animation come as standard. The Premium Plus trim for those two models specifically, in the Executive package, have available dual pane glass for a quieter cabin. The Q8 in the Premium trim has new interior packages available that add stitching and leatherette to the dashboard while the Premium Plus trim carries that leatherette with stitching onto the console and armrests as well.

The RS Q8 model features electric sunshades on the rear doors and an extended Fine Nappa leather package as standard. For the entire Q8 model line, the color palette is refreshed with Waitomo blue metallic replacing the previous Galaxy blue metallic, Satellite silver metallic replacing the former Florett silver metallic, and Tamarind brown metallic replacing the older Barrel brown metallic.

The 2023 Q8 has two separate powertrain options. The first is a 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder engine that comes with the Q8 55. The second is a 4.0-liter, 8-cylinder engine that is paired with both the SQ8 and RS Q8. Both options come with a Tiptronic transmission.

Continuing with different features coming with different trims and packages, Audi has dispersed certain safety features among the model configurations. Adaptive cruise control with lane guidance is now included in the Convenience package of the Premium trim, while remote park assist plus is added to the Prestige trim and made optional for the RS Q8 Executive package.

Pricing & Release Date

We haven’t been given an exact release date as of yet, but it’s likely that the new Q8 line may be available by the end of this year.

Depending on which model and trim level consumers choose, the MSRP ranges from $70,800 all the way up to $120,400 for the specialty trim.

As an SUV, there is no shortage of competition for the 2023 Q8, but some rivals include the Ford Expedition, Cadillac Escalade, INFINITI QX80, Lincoln Navigator, and Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Be sure to stay tuned for more information as the release date draws near.
