Volkswagen is launching its South American market-stopped Tarok compact pickup truck bring to show everyone New York, and the concept looks like a rather clever little pickup truck with interesting bed and cabin layouts. It is planned to build the plant in Brazil for the large customer bases of VW in Brazil and Argentina and other South American countries. In America, however, it is all to measure the reactions of the Americans to a not absurdly large pickup. Personally, I think there is a demand for it, but I think we will see it?
Oh And although the name sounds like it might be Spock's half-brother, As per the volcanic equivalent of Phish for the past year or so, it seems to be actually an indication of the Tarok people in Nigeria.
The truck is built on the same MQB platform that VW buys for everything Golf is used to the Gulf of Atlas, we are talking about a unibody truck, not a body-on-frame. It will be one of VW's largest MQB-based vehicles, but relatively compact for the modern truck market, at least in the US.
It's a double cabin truck, and although this means a shortened bed length, the designers have Volkswagen has done some interesting things here, where they provide a fold-down door behind the cabin, which, when coupled with the fold-down rear seat, effectively forms a longer cargo area.
