These are the first official images with the 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Dune Concept set to be exhibited starting Monday at the North American International Auto Show.

Several days ago Volkswagen previewed its revised Beetle Dune Concept by publishing some design sketches and now a couple of official pics have surfaced the web, prior to the concept's public debut scheduled for tomorrow and ahead of a rumored production model due in 2015.

The vehicle is an evolution of the 2000 Beetle Dune Concept featuring a similar rugged appearance with crossover cues such as the protective plates, flared wheel arches, beefy alloys and black moldings. Inside there's a handle where the glove box would normally be positioned while the cabin features several yellow accents.

Power is provided by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine with 210 HP (154 kW) sent to the wheels with help from a DSG six-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

More details will be disclosed tomorrow.
