With heightened power in the 2023 GLS, you’ll experience superhero-like speed, goosebumps everywhere, and adrenaline coursing through your veins.
The 2023 GLS and the Q7 are just getting started, though. Both models offer additional engines that deliver a performance boost. The Audi is available with a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine capable of 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. This amount of power lines up with the 2023 GLS’s standard powertrain.
