Volkswagen has announced that they will be releasing the all-new Volkswagen Touareg next spring and when they say all-new, they meant it.
According to Volkswagen, the Touareg has been redesigned right to the last LED light which means it is going to be a completely new model. We know that the new design is going to be based on the T-Prime GTE Concept but what we do not know is how much they plan to bring over.
No word on what the all-new Touareg will be offering but there has been speculation that the vehicle would be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine as well as a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine but we will have to wait and see. There were also rumors about a V8 TDI engine being offered as well as a plug-in hybrid version in the future.
Like the Porsche Cayenne, the Volkswagen Touareg will be riding on the MLB Evo platform which should help reduce the weight of the vehicle as well as make it more fuel efficient.
