Volkswagen's new Touareg V6 TDI may or may not be making its official debut this week in LA. However, pricing information for the diesel SUV does appear to have leaked out onto the web. If accurate, the Touareg TDI will start at $42,800. That's a $2,500 premium over the existing 3.6L V6 gas engine version. That's a slightly higher premium than the Jetta TDI which runs $2,000 over the similarly-equipped gas Jetta. Of course being a German vehicle it's very easy to jack up the price well above that entry point with options like the Lux Plus package at $5,400.The new diesel Touareg should be on sale in January. Thanks to Connor for the tip!

Looks pretty good. I'm not looking for one but this makes a lot more sense than the V10. Then again, I'm not sure any SUV makes sense anytime soon.

Yes, see below from autoblog

A gent named Chris at VW of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, just received the order guide for the Touareg V6 TDI, and the numbers reveal that it will arrive on our shores in January with a base price of $42,800, or $43,490 with the destination charge. That base price is $3,500 more than the Touareg V6 FSI, money that will get you slightly less horsepower but about 150 lb-ft. more torque and about 4.5 more mpg. Options include the Luxury Package for $2,700, Tech Package for $3,350, and Luxury Plus for $5,400. If you want to do something with your Touareg other than go get hotdogs, the rear locking diff is $700, a trailer hitch runs you $500, and you can throw in the silkiness that is the four-corner air suspension for $2,750. There's no word yet on invoice pricing, and it will be interesting to see if people stump up for the premium without getting huge deals on the lot.
