2021 Audi SQ7 Trims
Towing capacity by engine

Choose a towing vehicle wisely. Make sure the engine has enough power, the gearbox is capable of withstanding heavy loads, and the axle ratio is optimal for hauling.

  • 4.0L V-8, 500 hp, 568 lb/ft - 7000 lbs

4.0T Premium Plus 4dr All-Wheel Drive quattro Sport Utility

Maximum Towing Capacity - 7000 lb

It is the same for all trims.

The maximum weight that Audi SQ7 is allowed to tow. The maximum trailer weights listed are only applicable for altitudes up to 3280 ft (1,000 m) above sea level. With increasing altitude the engine power and therefore the car's climbing ability are impaired because of the reduced air density, so the maximum trailer weight has to be reduced accordingly. The weight of the car and trailer must be reduced by 10% for every further 3280 ft (1,000 m) (or part thereof).

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) - 6945 lb

It is the same for all trims.

This is the maximum amount of weight Audi SQ7 is rated to carry (engine, chassis, fluids, passengers, cargo, load - everything). It is often determined by the manufacturer and is indicated in the owner's manual or on the inside of the drive's door panel.

Curb Weight - 5291 lb

It is the same for all trims.

This is how much Audi SQ7 weighs sitting on the curb with no driver, passengers, no cargo and no load with all standard options.

Payload Capacity - 1654 lb

Payload is considered all the extra stuff you put inside your vehicle, whether it be passengers or a pile of rocks, that weight is all considered payload. You can increase it by:

  1. Upgrading the Rear Springs.
  2. Adding Coil-Over Shock Absorbers.
  3. Installing a Longer Truck Bed.
  4. Attaching a Trailer.
  5. Adding Bed Racks.

Horsepower - 500 hp

It is the same for all trims.

The higher the power of your engine, the more weight your car can pull.

Torque - 568 Lb-Ft

It is the same for all trims.

High torque is essential for towing because it allows you to pull the trailer at a lower RPM, reducing the strain on the engine.

Axle Ratio - no data

The higher the axle ratio, the more power your vehicle produces, and as a result, the more weight this car can tow.

Drive Type - all-wheel

It is the same for all trims.

All-wheel or rear-wheel drive vehicles are best suited for towing, while front-wheel drive vehicles can haul much less weight.

Transmission - 8-spd w/OD

It is the same for all trims.

Do not overload your vehicle while towing, as this can cause the transmission to overheat and fail. If your transmission has "Towing mode" - be sure to turn it on.

Turbocharger - twin turbo

It is the same for all trims.

Turbocharged engines produce more power, so if you need a vehicle for towing, choose the one equipped with a turbo.

Wheelbase - 117.9

It is the same for all trims.

The longer your vehicle's wheelbase, the less likely the trailer you tow will push down on the rear axle and lift the front end.

Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a front axle of your Audi SQ7.

Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a rear axle of your Audi SQ7.

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) has developed the J2807 set of recommended practices. The tow test procedures designed by the big brains at the SAE consist of a series of rigorous real-world challenges to determine the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of a vehicle and trailer combination.
