  • VW Tarok Concept Breaks Cover, Previews Global Compact Pickup

At the motor show in Sao Paulo Volkswagen has presented the pickup truck Tarok. The all-wheel drive all-rounder combines the progressive features of the latest generation of digitally networked SUVs with the versatility of a cleverly designed five-metre pick-up.

Aesthetically, the Tarok builds on the updated VW pickup aesthetic established earlier this year by the Atlas Tanoak concept in ny, which in turn was a neat generation leap over the 2010-present Amarok global pickup truck they now produce.

After weeks of teasers, Volkswagen has finally taken veil off the Tarok pickup as concept.

José Carlos Pavone, Head of Design Volkswagen do Brasil, revealed the pick-up concept. The floor space can be extended by opening the tailgate or using the brand new mechanism that allows the bottom of the passenger cab rear panel to be folded down.


The VW Tarok isn't destined for the United Kingdom or Europe (at the moment), but we'd have thought there would be healthy market for a cheaper, lifestyle pick-up sitting below the Amarok - complete with the tax breaks for business owners.

Underneath the Tarok Concept's bonnet sits a 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine with 148bhp, which can, in Brazil, be powered by either pure ethanol, or an ethanol-petrol blend. The transmission is a six-speed automatic sending power to permanent 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system. Volkswagen claims that the Tarok can carry a maximum load of a tonne.

For the rest, the interior gets a streamlined design, though it does feature a large display screen in lieu of the more traditional central console commands. The future series model will start out with a 2.0-litre turbo diesel direct injection (TDI) TSI engine that also delivers 110 kW / 150 PS.

Volkswagen has unveiled a new small pickup with a transformable bed that can turn the little truck into a long-item hauler.
