DL382 S-tronic (0CK / 0CL / 0CJ)

The DL382 is a completely redesigned 7-speed dual clutch gearbox compared to its predecessor (DL501). There are several variants of the DL382 transmission available on the market since 2015.

DL382 S-tronic information

  • 7-speed
  • Wet clutch
  • Longitudinal config
  • Stock rated up to 400 - 500Nm
  • E.G. Audi A4, A5, A6 and Q5

The DL382 S-tronic is a completely new developed dual clutch transmission by Audi AG. This gearbox was introduced in two variants during the launch of the Audi A6 ultra (type 4G) in 2015: a front wheel drive (0CK) and a quattro (0CL) variant. Subsequently, the 0CK transmission was further developed into a new variant (0CJ) which uses shift by wire technology and was launched in the Audi Q5 (type FY). These variants are designed and suitable for an engine torque up to 400Nm.

The latest and strongest variant of the DL382 transmission is the DL382+ (0HL). Various modifications and improvements have been implemented by Audi in order to raise the torque capacity from 400Nm to 500Nm. The DL382+ is designed for longitudinally placed engines with an engine torque up to 500Nm like the latest generations Audi A6 and A7 (type 4K).
