It looks like a few more details have shown up on the rumored addition to the Volkswagen SUV family. According to Auto Express, the newcomer will have its sights set dead on the American market and will boast seating for seven. It will also carry a slimmer price tag than the current Touareg, all of this courtesy of VW America guru Jonathan Browning.

Auto Express is also reporting that the new crossover/SUV will most likely be built here in the U.S. at the company's Chattanooga, Tennessee manufacturing facility alongside the new Passat.

The German automaker has made no secret of the fact that it wants nothing more than to carve out a larger chunk of the American auto market, and doing so will require a portfolio of vehicles that caters more specifically to Yankee tastes. By 2018, VW wants to sell 800,000 vehicles in the land of the free. Last year the company managed to move 256,830 units.

Is there any other make/model where the 7-seater is less expensive than the 5-seater? Seems odd...or simply means a much more watered down big SUV, eh?

So, the vehicle in the article, is a picture of a Touareg.
I will look forward to images of the "newcomer" with "a slimmer price tag than the current Touareg."



Thanks again NewsFeed. You BOT! :thumbsup
