Not in this article, but I read another that mentioned that the 8 speed auto will have a radio dial shifter and they had an image of it. Not a fan of those.

But they also stated that even if the tariff situation improved, the decision is final.
Yeah...there will be no MK4 in the foreseeable future. Got my hopes up and everything!
