Volkswagen teased the world with its CrossBlue concept at the 2013 North American International Auto show in Detroit, but little news has actually originated from the German car manufacturer about the three-row SUV. That’s not the case considering that these spy shots emerged of an early pre-production mule first reported by the Chinese auto website Autohome.
Volkswagen’s marketing department has relatively picked another “T” name, accompanying Touareg and Tiguan. Fulfill the Teramont. The spy images show plenty of the Teramont’s design information, though information of its engineering stay a secret. A V6 badge is seen on the tailgate, but exactly what V-6 engine VW is utilizing is still unknown.
2019 Volkswagen Teramont Exterior
If the Teramont’s exterior holds true to these spy shots, it will not have departed far from the original CrossBlue idea. Its sharp lines and distinct VW grille offer it a macho yet refined appearance. Satin chrome trim work brings contrast to the otherwise dark body color. The long hood appears to have lots of space for a range of engines.
Around back, the taillights take after the LED systems used on the Tiguan crossover. The large chrome accent bar runs in between the taillights accents well the chrome lower fascia with dual exhaust pointers simply hardly noticeable. It’s here we can plainly see the V6 badge on the best side of the tailgate.
2019 Volkswagen Teramont Interior
Inside, the dashboard seeks to carry most of design styling from the CrossBlue concept. The instrument panel is low slung and offers a large infotainment screen flanked by air vents on either side. Upscale wood-like trim covers the dash and flows onto the door panels. The HVAC controls are of the three-knob range, making them simple to operate.
We can see the shifter is various than the futuristic looking system discovered in the CrossBlue. And it’s difficult to see, but it seems the digital evaluates seem to be present. If not, the cluster in this test mule look a terrible lot like the concept’s.
Convenience seems to be superior– a minimum of just by the appearances. There is a two-part center armrest for the first row and second row legroom appears plentiful. Air bents and HVAC controls for the second row further the comfort level. Unfortunately, there are no shots of the 3rd row lodgings. Like the CrossBlue principle, we anticipate the 2 seats to fold flat when not in use.
2019 Volkswagen Teramont Engine
Little is known about the Teramont’s drivetrain and these images provide no other hints. Undoubtedly the V6 badge represents the use of a V-6 engine, but which VW V-6 is still up for debate. It’s possible VW will utilize the familiar 3.6-liter FSI V-6 discovered in the Touareg. In this case, it will make 280 horse power and 266 pound-feet of torque.
VW could likewise up the ante by borrowing Audi’s 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 found the in Q7. In this application, the all-aluminum mill makes a decent 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come mated to an eight-speed automated transmission with a full-time AWD. Anticipate VW’s 4Motion AWD system to come standard here.
2019 Volkswagen Teramont Prices
The Teramont will slot over the Touareg in terms of high-end and cost point, so anticipate its base cost to being well above the Touareg’s starting point of $49,705. Possibly the Teramont will begin life at $52,000. Climbing trim levels and including choices might press the Teramont’s rate into the mid-$60,000 range.
