Volkswagen has just presented its new pick up truck concept here at the 2018 São Paulo International Motor Show. The Volkswagen Tarok Concept will be the base of the brand’s next-generation pick-up truck, replacing the Amarok in the near future.
Measuring at five-metres long, the Tarok Concept features a design concept that combines the styling elements of an urban SUV with off-road ruggedness. Like with all modern Volkswagen concepts, the Tarok features extensive light bars on the front and rear end which will no doubt be watered down when it hits production floors.
One core design feature of the new pick-up truck is its variable loading area concept which allows the rear seats to be folded down allowing the cargo bay to be extended by another 655 mm to transport even longer items. When the rear seats are in place, the carbo bay still measures 1,206 mm in length.
Volkswagen is bringing its digital-centric cabin design language currently available in its passenger cars to the pick-up truck segment. The Tarok Concept dons a digital instrument cluster with a glass-covered Infotainment system that controls all the major functions of the vehicle.
The Tarok Concept will be available with a 1.4-litre four-cylinder TSI petrol with 150 hp paired to a six-speed automatic as well as a 2.0-litre four-cylinder TDI turbodiesel also delivering 150 hp. A permanent 4MOTION all-wheel system is standard on all production series Tarok Concept.
