VW News: Rumorpile: Volkswagen's Upcoming Three-Row Crossover To Be Named Atlas

Recommended Posts

For the past few months, we have been reporting that Teramont  was the possible name for Volkswagen's upcoming three-row crossover. But it seems the model will be named something else. 

Automobilwoche reports that the new crossover will wear the 'Atlas' nameplate. Volkswagen filed trademark applications for the name with the U.S. Government back in April. According to Automotive News, the Atlas name shows that VW Group of America CEO Hinrich Woebcken made good on a promise back in July that the crossover “much easier to pronounce, American-style name”.

A Volkswagen spokeswoman declined to comment on the 'Atlas' name.

Volkswagen is planning to show the new three-row crossover at an event on October 27th.

Well, it's not a risky assessment by any means, but I'm calling it now- this will be a smashing success, and will reinvigorate VW's standings in the market. The upcoming new Tiguan will bolster it.

I went over to VW's site and built an AllTrack.  Couldn't find a manual transmission anywhere on the features list... nor is there a brown paint option... although they have a delicious brown leatherette interior color available.  I'm not cool with DSG transmissions, having driven them short distances.  Too jerky in operation.

      Since last August, we have been calling Jeep's upcoming Wrangler pickup the Scrambler. But a new report says that the name of the truck will be Gladiator.
      The Jeep Scrambler Forum obtained a screenshot of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' media site titled “2020 Jeep Gladiator.” Reportedly, this page included mentions of the Sport, Overland, and Rubicon trims. The page has since been deleted. A source told the forum, “I actually went to the media site and saw the page. I saw it on my iPhone browser and on Google Chrome.” 
      A Jeep spokesman declined to comment when asked by Automobile.
      While most people will know the Gladiator name from the 2005 concept shown at the Detroit Auto Show, the Gladiator name was used on Jeep trucks from the 1960's.
      We'll find out if Gladiator, Scrambler, or something else appears on the truck at the LA Auto Show on November 28th.

      Audi unveiled a four-door TT concept called the Sportback at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Taking the overall sleek shape of the coupe, designers stretched the overall length and width to allow for two extra doors and a larger back seat. A new report from Auto Express says the four-door TT is coming and will take the place of the coupe and convertible within the next two years.
      The reason for the departure of the TT coupe and convertible is due to the diesel emission scandal. Due to the various penalties and fines, the Volkswagen group had to cancel a number of models and projects to save money. The next-generation TT coupe and convertible were likely on the chopping block due to low sales as buyers aren't interested in small sport cars. But Audi was somehow able to make a case to keep the TT as four-door 'coupe'. Auto Express says the design has been approved by management.
      The report doesn't say where the model will fit into Audi's lineup, but we suspect it will be priced slightly higher than the A3 sedan.
