In 2009 was the 3.0 TFSI S-Line available in the U.S.?
If not in 2009 what years where the 3.0 TFSI S-Line available?
Is this the best Q7 not going TDI?

yes, 2009 was the first yr they came in the 3.0t. Before the 2009 facelift, you could get a 3.6 or a 4.2. After facelift, only gas engine was 3.0t

I like what power is available in the 3.0t that is the gas only motor I'm going to consider. We really want a 09+ A6 avant but they are so hard to find. The price people are asking we might as well go with a Q7. I just needed to know if they where here in 2009 s line 3.0t.

I'm sorry, but this info is wrong.

The 3.0T engines for the Q7 were not available until 2011; the standard 3.0T puts out 272hp and the 3.0T Prestige S-Line puts out 333hp. These engines replaced the 3.6 and 4.2 NA engines.

Thanks! I was looking for a 09 3.0t S-line going wow this car must be unicorn I could not find one.
Is it a consensus that the S-line 3.0t is the best Q7 not going tdi?

Essentially, yes. There are 2010 S-Line in the 3.6 and 4.2 engine, but the 2011+ 3.0T engines are more efficient. Of course, when you go TDI, you're on a whole other playing field!

That's playing Devil's Advocate!!! Man, that's a hard one... but if I had to choose, I would say the A6 because its my DD. Its the perfect sleeper car... Looks/is very luxurious, but plants a nice 300 hp to the ground. The Q7 is the wife's DD. I only get to drive it in the weekend, but I love the low end torque, the spacious interior and fuel economy.
