2018 Volkswagen Atlas Review

2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Volkswagen is turning its eye towards the American automotive market, where larger SUVs are selling like hotcakes. The European brand has long chosen to develop premium mid-size vehicles, but it’s changing course with the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas—a full-size three-row SUV designed for American families.

“After spending a few weeks with our own 2018 Atlas, it’s clear VW built an ultra-functional, family-friendly three-row SUV,” Consumer Reports said in their review.

Unlike many full-size SUVs, the Volkswagen Atlas offers a comfortable, firm ride on paved roadways. The standard all-wheel drive configuration offers responsive handling.

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas features a 3.6-liter V6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. That smooth-shifting powertrain delivers a hearty 276 hp. Later this year, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will offer 235 hp and improved efficiency.

The Volkswagen Atlas features sharp exterior styling that sets it apart from its closest competitors. The spacious interior offers three-row seating that’s perfect for larger families.

Premium materials and ergonomic controls make long road trips not only manageable, but enjoyable. The 6.5-inch and 8-inch touchscreen systems offer Apple CarPlay and Android Autocompatibility.

We here at Gossett Volkswagen Porsche are happy to see the 2018 Atlas getting the praise it deserves!

Most Powerful Porsche 911 Turbo S

Porsche 911 Turbo S

The Porsche 911 is already known as a high-powered sports car that’s both stylish and comfortable. Now, though, the brand is going the extra mile to blow enthusiasts away. The new Porsche 911 Turbo S will be the most powerful model to date, but there’s a catch.

The upcoming 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Coupe will feature a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine that delivers 607 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The standard seven-speed PDK transmission allows for optimized shifting. That combination brings the car’s 0-to-60-mph time to just 2.8 seconds, giving the upcoming 911 Turbo S a track speed of 205 mph.

However, not everyone will be able to get one.

The 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Coupe will be limited to a production run of just 500 units. Porsche Design will commemorate the car with a Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series titanium-cased watch. The watch is only available to the 500 lucky owners of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Coupe.

We here at Gossett Volkswagen Porsche are pumped to see Porsche once again pushing the limits of the road!
