After more than six years the German automaker Audi will reintroduce the Allroad badge in the United States on its A4 model, coming after the 2005 A6 Avant that wasn’t really quite a seller.
According to Car and Driver, the company’s officials are planning to get the new A4 Allroad to the US but its future American customers will have to wait until 2013, when the vehicle will hit the showrooms as a 2014 model.
Rumors say that the American version of the A4 Avant that will receive the Allroad treatment will be quite similar to its European brother with flared and gray-colored bumpers, extra ground clearance differentiating from the classic Avant model and skid plate-like detailing for the front and rear fascias.
The same rumors also announce the 2014’s A4 Allroad engine which is supposed to be the 2.0 liter turbo four-cylinder version but knowing the German automaker makes us think that other powertrains will also be available for the American version.
The new generation of the Audi A4 Allroad is expected, as we said in the first paragraph, to hit the United States showrooms in 2013, coming as a 2014 model. No other details are known about the model.
