The Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak, a huge pickup that has been developed for American markets, gives us a glimpse at what could lie in store for a future generation of the VW Amarok. Although it is a concept designed to find out whether Americans will take kindly to more models, it certainly has a lot of inspiration from the existing Amarok.
This five-seat double-cab pickup is the first pickup to use VW’s MQB platform. With a slightly increased power to the Amarok, the Tanoak has a 3.6-litre V6 engine with a powerful 276bhp and 4Motion tech alongside an eight-speed automatic transmission. Huge LED lighting panels cover the front grille and rear of the truck. To impress Americans further, the Tanoak also sports 20″ alloys and two towing hooks.
