2019 Volkswagen Teramont
Volkswagen teased the world with its CrossBlue concept at the 2013 North American International Auto show in Detroit, but little news has come from the German automaker about the three-row SUV. That’s no longer the case since these spy shots surfaced of an early pre-production mule first reported by the Chinese auto website Autohome.
Volkswagen’s marketing department has seemingly chosen another “T” name, going along with Touareg and Tiguan. Meet the Teramont.
The spy photos show plenty of the Teramont’s design details, though details of its engineering remain a mystery. A V6 badge is seen on the tailgate, but what V-6 engine VW is using is still unknown.
