The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently announced that the production of the Routan will be resumed next summer.
After a rumor has appeared a few weeks ago, which was saying that the production of the Volkswagen Routan will be axed for good because of the slow demand and sales, the model is ending up in our news once again, this time with the German based automaker denying everything. According to the car manufacturer, the Routan will resume its production next summer in Windson, Ontario, at the Chrysler plant.
As a quick reminder, the VW Routan is a redesigned version of the Chrysler Town & Country which has been in production since 2008, as a successor of the Eurovan. The model has a four-door body style and it’s 5,144 mm ling, 1,953 m wide and 1,750 mm tall. The VW Routan is coming with a unique suspension tuning and a revised styling, carrying a Chrysler sourced 3.6 liter V6 engine, which is producing a total output of 283 BHP (211 kW) and 260 lb-ft of torque (352 Nm). 9,923 units of the VW Routan have been delivered in the United States at the end of November, 17 percent less compared to the same period of 2011.
