Dude. I know why you feel the way you do. The new T-Reg is amazing. I would love one. I loved the v8 gen 1. I loved my friends mk'3' tdi.

But.

It's not going to happen. I wish it would, but it won't.

That being said, the Atlas is helping VW stay in the US and if it takes killing the Treg and bringing more Atlas based SUV's and trucks, I'm all for it.

If the onslaught of SUV's and etc push the sales numbers to (and I'm pulling this number out of the air) 600k a year consistly, they might be willing to take a loss and bring back the T-reg. Meanwhile, skip the Atlas and get a Atlas Sport or what ever they call it. It's a great looking SUV.

The BLOATED ATLAS SPORT or whatever they f*cking call it will never even come close to my T1 V8 capability. My wife has this Airstream fetage and it looks as if we may pull the trigger. The ATLAS will be unable to tow the Airstream model we want :facepalm:

Looks as if I'm hanging on to my V8 for the next couple of years as we all wait to see if Volkswagen brings the Touareg back to the North American Market. What a ****ing mistake on Volkswagen! Really dissapointed with Volkwagen! :mad:

You and the other ten people that would have bought a Touareg for towing like that have every right to be disappointed.

Isn't there some sort of Audi or Porsche, with comparable power (and a more appropriate brand name to pricepoint ratio) that will do the job for you?
If not, I'm sure BMW or M-B have something that'll do the trick, since you seem committed to staying with a German brand.

Of course there are many other options that would suit his needs but why would that matter when he can whine that VW won't bring over a vehicle that would only sell in limited numbers at the price they would charge.
At least he isn't calling for the Amarok to be sold here. :laugh:

I miss the Touareg too, but if you really want one that badly, why not get a CPO Cayenne for an equivalent price, or splurge a little more on a new one?

If you can go easy on the options, the price-differential isn't as big as one might think, and IME the Cayenne is quite a capable and durable vehicle. Not sure what you'd need to tow that airstream, but if the Cayenne checks out, that would be one good looking setup.

This past summer I test drove a new Touareg at VW's Wolfsburg off road course. Fully loaded they cost $90k to $100k, still want one?

Holding out for a new Touareg is like waiting for them to bring back the air cooler cars. It ain't happening.
I've worked for VW for 27 years and I still fail to see what anyone thinks these products can do that others can't for equal or less money. I'm truly baffled by it. Can anyone explain?

You can build one on vw.de- a fully loaded one is over 120,000 EUROS! which is nearly $140k. Mind you that car had over 65 options/packages. Everything from matrix lighting to night vision to the 15" innovision cockpit. But still every single thing is an option like on a cayenne and it is insane how expensive it gets. Not to mention it only comes in a dainty diesel v6 right now.

I read the Chattanooga factory is adding 1K workers and a 3rd shift in preparation for what they're calling the 2 row Atlas. Hopefully by then VW will have solved their V6 shortage.

Yes, I know that, but typically for the US market they don't offer a la carte but trim packages. Not to mention we get a lower price, no MWST, etc. My 42k Golf R in the states costs 55k Euros in Germany. :screwy: That is how I came up with my guestimated price.
