A concept version of the new model will be shown at the NY auto show later this month, and Volkswagen has released an illustration of that vehicle (see above).
VW plans to reveal at the NY auto show next week a five-passenger SUV concept, presaging a model the automaker will build at its $900 million factory near Chattanooga that's assembling the seven-seat Atlas.
The five-seat Atlas is based on the same MQB platform as its seven-passenger sibling, although it's several inches shorter than the bigger Atlas.
The German automaker said the funds will go towards beefing up the Chattanooga, Tennessee plant to build additional Atlas sport utility vehicles geared towards the USA market.
The five-passenger Atlas variant will likely offer the same engine options.
The Chattanooga plant, which will continue to make the Passat sedan and the Atlas, has excess production capacity, Dziczek said. The current Atlas is available with a 2.0-liter turbo-4 rated at 238 horsepower or a 280-hp 3.6-liter V-6. Front-wheel drive is standard, with Volkwagen's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system available as an option. Pricing starts just over $31,000.
Volkswagen will invest another $340 million to build SUVs at its USA factory, a sign of confidence despite rising friction on global trade, the company announced Monday.
Antonio Pinto, the President and CEO, Volkswagen Chattanooga and Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, will join Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger and Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke. The Atlas went on sale past year.
Whether or not it's the same size as a seven-passenger Atlas remains to be seen.
