2018 VW Passat Henderson, NV
The Henderson area is very familiar with Passat models, especially the ones available at Findlay Volkswagen. What local residents may not know, however, is what's new for the 2018 VW Passat, which is now available in Henderson, NV.
While the Passat may not look too different on the outside, it's what's on the inside that counts. In other words, most of the changes for the 2018 production year can't really be found unless you know where to look. Lucky for you, we've got those changes covered.
A New Base Powertrain
Volkswagen has switched out the old base 1.8-liter engine for a newer and better 2.0-liter four-cylinder TSI powertrain that's eager and ready to earn its keep. The new engine pumps out 174 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, which is then directed to the front wheels by its mated six-speed automatic transmission.
A New GT Trim
You may be familiar with the 3.6-liter VR6 engine option for the Passat, which produces 280 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. What's new, however, is the GT trim inspired by said engine. The VR6 comes standard on the GT trim, of course, but that's not all. In addition to the 3.6-liter behemoth, the GT trim also features a carbon-fiber interior trim, exclusively styled roof, spoiler, mirrors, and window trim, GTI-inspired front red accent line and red brake calipers, 19-inch 'Tornado' aluminum-alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension.
People First Warranty
What's better than a new Passat? A new Passat covered by a new warranty! The all-new People First Warranty serves a VW vehicle for either six years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. Covered longer and better than previous models, the 2018 Passat gives its drivers a new level of peace of mind.
