Volkswagen is Considering a Truck of Their Own for North America

Ford’s confirmation that they are working on another electric truck could spawn a Volkswagen version

  • The next-generation VW Amarok will be based on the Ford Ranger.

  • Both will share numerous technologies.

The news about the potential coming of a new pickup from Volkswagen broke on an episode of 60 minutes last week. It was Herbert Diess, VAG Boss, who responded with a “not yet” to a question about a truck for the US from the German automaker.

As we know, Ford and VW have a working understanding that involves platform and technology sharing that encompasses commercial and electric vehicles. The new 2nd generation Volkswagen Amarok will be based on the Ford Ranger and share its powertrains configurations according to Automotive News.

There is little hope, if any at all, that the new Amarok will be offered in North America. However, following what Jim Farley, Ford’s CEO, said about a new electric truck, it’s highly plausible that it will spawn a VW version of its own.

Ford’s Preparing Another Electric Pickup

There are no details about this new electric truck but two things are certain: Volkswagen will not launch an ICE-powered pickup in North America, it will have to be electric. The other certainty is that Volkswagen will not rebadge an F-150 Lightning to compete in the full-size EV truck segment.
