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.

Reactions to the all-new 2012 VW Jetta GLI
Last Thursday, Volkswagen invited fans from VWVortex and Facebook to the Chicago Auto Show Press Days for a prior-to-the-public, sneak peak of the new 2012 VW Jetta GLI. Finally there is empirical proof that moms/teachers/bosses who tell you to stop spending so much time with social media are just dead wrong. These bloggers, car freaks, and super-fans stepped out from behind the computer screen and in front of the camera. And here, in their own words (with a little encouragement from Danielle Gumro) is what they had to say about the 2012 Jetta GLI, its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, red brake calipers and rockin' Fender Premium Sound System.





Klaus Bischoff and a bunch of car guys in suits
Most of you know Danielle Gumro, Volkswagen Product Specialist, as someone who can answer just about any question regarding a VW thrown at her. But to keep things interesting, we judo-flipped the script and sent her out on the floor of the 2011 North American International Auto show in Detroit armed with nothing more than a microphone to ask automotive insiders their opinion on the launch of the all-new 2012 Passat, and how it will affect the American mid-sized sedan market. Danielle fought the crowds, and jockeyed for position with hoards of hungry journalists hunting for a tasty sound bite. When the chaos ended, she had a bucketful of behind-the-scene interviews from some heavy hitters in the automotive world. Check out some of the interviews with VW designers, executives, dealers, and automotive journalists here. http://blogs.vw.com/passat/

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.





E-Bugster Concept
The E-Bugster concept car was revealed at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. The name "E-Bugster" is a combination of "E" for electric, "Bug," the American nickname for the Beetle, and "speedster," which typically describes an open-top two-seater.
