Volkswagen will Unveil "Another" SUV at the New York Auto Show

VW Atlas Cross Sport Concept teases 2019’s 5-seat SUV hybrid

The production version is planned for various markets around the world, most notably China and the U.S., where the five-seat second Atlas model will be built at Volkswagen's Chattanooga plant in Tennessee. The Ford F-150, in particular, was not only the best-selling truck in the American market, but the top-selling vehicle, period, with volume coming to almost double that of the leading SUV, the Toyota RAV-4.

Measuring in at over 214 inches it's right in the midst of the midsize pickup class, and has been lifted for nearly 10-inches of clearance. Otherwise, while the majority of the truck's interior is new, the Tanoak bears a solid resemblance to the Atlas on which its based.

Volkswagen has confirmed plans for a new five-seat variant of its Atlas SUV with the unveiling of the arresting Cross Sport concept at the 2018 NY motor show.

Renshaw added to Australia squad for final South Africa Test
The Queensland batsman played ten Test matches for Australia country and amassed 623 runs with a best of 184 runs. Co-incidentally, it was Bancroft who replaced Renshaw for the openers' slot.

The grille and VW badge are luminated by white light and offer an animated lighting display when the vehicle is unlocked with light running over the grille and into the LED headlight surrounds, while the badge gradually gets brighter.

Although the Tanoak concept pickup is based on the Atlas SUV and features VW's modular transverse matrix architecture called MQB, the designers gave the truck plenty of its own looks. It's also got taller suspension emphasized by 20-inch wheels wrapped in off-road tires. A second version of the Atlas Cross Sport has a conventional hybrid drive without an external battery charging function (HEV). The first screen lies between the steering wheel.

The centre console features a newly designed shifter grip for the eight-speed automatic gearbox while the Active Control modes can be selected via a metallic slider and has been created to be used even when the driver is wearing work gloves. Still, a hybrid would fit much better in Volkswagen's current line-up, and we can't help but imagine how the Tanoak equivalent of a Ford F-150 Raptor might perform. The unit in question is a combination of a 3.6-liter V-6 petrol engine boasting 276 horsepower and 266 lb. -ft. of torque, and front and rear electric motors that add a further 54 horsepower and 162 lb. -ft. and 114 horsepower and 199 lb. -ft., respectively.

Yankees' Greg Bird Once Again Sidelined for Surgery
Neil Walker and Tyler Austin can fill in until Bird comes back (Don't be shocked if Adam Lind finds his way back in Pinstripes). With the timetable of 6-8 weeks for Bird's return, that likely places his comeback date somewhere in June.

But the big reason VW can't just ship the Amarok here is that pesky Chicken Tax, which greatly favors domestically produced trucks. Therefore, there are three displays, one each for the instrument cluster (12.3-inch), infotainment system (10.1-inch) and climate control system. Still, according to Klaus Bischoff, Executive Director of Volkswagen Design, the go-anywhere looks aren't just for the show.

Stylistically, the new Atlas Cross Sport concept closely resembles the Atlas SUV but with some subtle styling changes that are expected to feature on the production version due out next year.

Especially if that pickup is built in the United States, where pickups roam unchallenged at the top end of the sales leader boards. "The decision is what we need".

Yankees' Bird to see foot specialist
He was optioned to the RailRiders on Wednesday, but was having a strong spring, batting.270 with four home runs in 14 games. Boone said he's confident Austin can fill the void at first. "We'll play the match-up game pretty much each and every day".
