Volkswagen Chattanooga workers take step toward new midsize SUV

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Work continues at the Volkswagen Chattanooga plant on the new Midsize SUV.

Workers have just completed an early milestone in production of the new vehicle.

They completed the first assembled metal test body.

The first test body build lets them check the calibration of body shop equipment and processes.

And then it will get more testing and refinements.

Full production of the new SUV is scheduled to begin in Chattanooga late this year.

It should hit showrooms in 2017.
