The Washington Post reports that the 1.8T may be reserved for 2015... when there will be a new Jetta.
Any thoughts? The article also reports that the engine is only just now being tested, and that production is only just beginning to start. If that's true, it's totally possible that 2014 may not be the year of the 1.8T. And if the article is right about that, could 2015 bring a Jetta VII? The Golf VII will likely debut as a 2015 here; maybe we'll see a version with a trunk then, too.Volkswagen says now that the Silao engines will be used for the Jettas and Beetles it builds in Puebla, and the Passats assembled in Tennessee. But with a new Jetta due for the 2015 model year, it may wait for that model to arrive—since it likely wouldn’t be used in an outgoing model with only one year left.
Food for thought.
