Limited Run 2018 Passat GT Delivers Driving Thrills

Get in touch and stay in touch with Chapman Volkswagen for a chance to drive and buy the new VW Passat GT, a limited run edition recently unveiled at the Detroit North American International Car Show. Designed by VW’s engineering facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the new GT is a unique take on the R-Line trim package, with special accents and features both inside and out. “The Passat GT illustrates how the North American Region can shape Volkswagen vehicles specifically for the U.S. market,” according to VW chief engineer Dr. Matthias Erb. “Combining a local perspective with our global engineering expertise allows us to create vehicles that meet the needs and desires of customers here.” Expect the new Passat GT to arrive at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale sometime this summer.

Powerful Engine Paired With Sport Suspension

The new VW Passat GT is powered by the 280-horsepower 3.6L V6 engine that also produces a healthy 258 pound-feet of torque. The engine mates up with a sport-tuned suspension, offering phenomenal handling and a more aggressive stance. The GT comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission that you can let seamlessly shift through all the power ranges, or you can take matters into your own hands and use the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for a little more dynamic driving experience. Even with all the power and sports car handling excitement, the VW Passat GT still earns an EPA estimated 28 mpg on the highway, making it the perfect dual-threat car for your daily commute and weekend adventures.

Design Unique on Inside and Out

The exterior of the Passat GT is unique from other models starting with LED headlights and daytime running lights. While it does have the same bumper as the R-Line model, a honeycomb grille, red accent line and GT badge all set this vehicle apart. The black roof is also unique to the GT, as are complimentary black window and door trim, as well as black mirror caps. The two-tone 19-inch wheels are broken up by the bright red brake calipers. A rear spoiler and LED taillights provide a rear exclamation point to the designer’s vision. Slip inside the new Passat GT and you’ll be surrounded by black and gray. The seats are made of black leatherette with gray inserts. Contrasting stitching provide a nice sophisticated touch. The Composition Media infotainment center utilizes a 6.3-inch touchscreen to control all your music and communication. Pricing for the limited edition VW Passat GT starts at $29,090.
