Another automaker seemingly wasting our time is Volkswagen. The company’s big news this morning is that the slightly updated 2008 Touareg will be called the Touareg 2. This might be the worst naming idea we’ve seen since the Taurus X. The Touareg 2 goes on sale later this spring and will start at $39,320.

There will be three upgraded engine choices, including a V-6, a V-8 and a monstrous twin-turbo diesel V-10.
