VW's New Chattanooga Plant
With a $1 billion investment, up to 2,000 initial jobs, and the potential
to generate $12 billion in growth, Volkswagen's new Chattanooga plant is
well along the way to being a welcome addition to the South. But here's
another impressive stat from this high-tech wonder: it's already received
the highest engineering certification - ISO 9001:2008 - before the first
2012 Passat has even rolled off the line.

The 2012 VW Jetta GLI partners with Fender. The gods of rock smile.
Driving the all-new performance inspired 2012 VW Jetta GLI is definitely an
experience, and the Fender audio system provides the soundtrack. It's no
small honor that Fender, arguably the most iconic name in audio, partnered
exclusively with Volkswagen to make sure the new line up of VWs sound as
good as they drive.
The GLI already prowls the streets with a rock star attitude. With its
aggressive stance, 2.0-liter, 200hp turbocharged engine, interior sticking, honeycomb
grill and flashy red caliper breaks the GLI is photogenic and it knows it.
And with the addition of the Fender Premium Audio System the final piece of
the puzzle is in place. This nine-speaker system is specifically designed
to capture the raw emotion of a live performance, making it a
"face-melting" audio experience. And according to Brian Tedeschi, Fender's
Business Affairs manager, that's a technical term.
We had Danielle Gumro catch-up and rock-out (literally) at the Chicago Auto
Show with the big brains at Fender to hear the inspiration and science
behind the gut-busting sound. This state-of the-art sound system was the
product of over three years of research and development to bring unmatched
audio clarity at high and low volume to your driving experience. In
laymen's terms this means a lot of really smart people spent a really long
time making sure that this audio system is going to be better, louder and
generally more "face-melting" than anything you've heard before.
