"The Tarok's DNA adds an exhilarating dynamic to the segment", declared Klaus Bischoff, head designer at Volkswagen.
Volkswagen is pumping up its high-riding portfolio with no less than 19 planned by 2025.
Volkswagen has taken the wraps off its new Tarok concept at the São Paulo International Motor Show, with the show vehicle previewing a fresh-faced baby double-cab bakkie set to be positioned just below the Amarok.
Measuring about five metres long, the Tarok features familiar pick-up cues like a double-cab body and a rear bed for storage. Built ground up - according to VW - the Tarok is based on the same MQB platform as the new crop of Volkswagens including the T-Roc and smaller T-Cross.
As we mentioned in the earlier article, it features a relatively small tray (compared to the likes of the larger Amarok), but has an innovative "variable loading area" that can be extended thanks to a folding rear panel in the back of the cabin. It is basically the Targa-inspired roof bar, with a foldable rear seat to extend the usable space on the truck bed.
The Tarok is also a proper one-tonner, or at least close to it, with VW claiming that the maximum load is "around one tonne". If you like what you see here, you'll be pleased to know that Volkswagen has said it would make "barely any changes" to the Tarok's design from concept to series production. The transmission is a six-speed automatic sending power to permanent 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system.
The four-cylinder turbo is good for 150 horsepower, and being developed for the Brazilian market, the Tarok also runs on pure ethanol (E100) and gasoline-ethanol blend (E22).
Unfortunately, the trick trucklet will only be available in Brazil and other global markets where small pickups are popular and VW tells Fox News Autos that it's not destined for the USA, but something more 'Murican-size might be.
