According to Audi USA communications chief Jeff Kuhlman, the 2012 Audi A6 will be offered with a 2.0L TFSI 4-cylinder engine when it goes on sale this summer – making it the first time the A6 is offered with a 4-cylinder in the U.S. market. Joining that engine option will be the 3.0 TFSI unit making 300-hp with a maximum torque of 324 lb-ft.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the next-generation Audi RS4, which will be a 2013 model year, will only be offered as a 5-door estate. Kuhlman said that Audi has no plans to bring the 2013 RS4 to the U.S. in either wagon or sedan form.

He said that Audi is being careful about not offering too many RS model in the United States for now and wants to see how well the TT RS and the RS5 sell here.
