- This Amarok will be based on the Ford Ranger.
- Volkswagen and Ford announced a partnership at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.
- This one might come to the US and Canada.
This rendering of the next Volkswagen Amarok holds all the typical overstated cues. As in, its wheels are enormous, the flares are exaggerated, and there are no door handles to be seen. While we don’t exactly know what the Amarok will look like, we do know it will be built upon the Ford Ranger’s platform.
The image does remind us of the uber-cool Tarok Concept Volkswagen revealed last year at the New York Auto Show albeit the rendering makes the Amarok seem far bigger. The final product will likely be a blending of the concepts but we’re quite convinced that the Amarok will be more badass than the current truck – there are yellow tow hooks and coil springs in the image!
The rendering’s front fascia is very Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport and this is the element we think will make it to production. If we squint somewhat, we’re guessing the new Amarok will be longer than the Tarok. At 193.5 inches, it was on the wee side. The Ranger, and the Honda Ridgeline, by comparison, both measure 210 inches long.
Herbert Diess, VW Chairman, did hint that this new Volkswagen Amarok could come to Canada and the US but nothing is yet confirmed.
