2020 VW Passat V6 Engine Release Date, Price, Spy Shots, & Redesign – Volkswagen is planning to introduce the 2020 Passat at the North American International Auto Show and now we are understanding more information about the model as a handful of books had been fairly recently asked to consider a spin in a pre-production prototype.
Although Volkswagen has previously charged the car as all-new, that is not exactly the case the model is basically a heavily current version of the present Passat. As Car and Driver information, “it’s structurally and mechanically the identical as just before, appropriate down to the 110.4 inches (2,804 mm) wheelbase.” That is unsatisfactory as current Passat times back to 2011. However, the model will feature new styling inside and out.
The exterior is slated to attract some cues from the Jetta and there will be an option available R-Line visual appeal package which brings 19-inch alloy wheels. Inside, you will find an 8.-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
Power will be presented by a familiar turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Though it proceeds to develop 174 hp (129 kW / 176 PS), it now builds up 207 lb-ft (280 Nm) of torque – a growth of 23 lb-ft (31 Nm). The engine is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission which transmits power exclusively to the front wheels. Although the four-cylinder lags right behind the competition, Volkswagen has reportedly made the decision from providing a non-obligatory V6. This is a bit frustrating as the 2019 Passat GT presented a 3.6-liter VR6 engine that produced 280 hp (208 kW / 283 PS) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. Enthusiasts will unquestionably skip the optional V6, but its absence shouldn’t be way too unexpected as the engine was softly lowered from the 2019 Passat. Costs remain to be unconfirmed, but the 2020 Passat is slated to appear at U.S. dealerships in mid-2019.
