The future Volkswagen Pick Up for Mercosur strips naked in a sketch
In the New York International Auto Show year we had the chance to meet the Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak Concept . With this pick up, the Wolfsburg firm presented to the American public an alternative to its unadapted Amarok. However, the transition to production of the first Volkswagen Pick Up American was on standby. The reason was the high development and production costs that the German conglomerate would have to endure.

This document, which has not yet been published, included the development and manufacture of a pick-up truck. However, the move to production of the Volkswagen Pick Up was stopped until both companies agreed. Well, it seems that they have already understood, because Volkswagen will take the Salon of Sao Paulo its pick up for Mercosur.

From the outset, its lines are more dynamic, giving a feeling of greater sportsmanship.

In the sketch we can see a body of > double cabin and four doors. To allow a model with compact size and great interior and cargo habitability, it will use the MQB modular platform .

However, even taking features of his brothers T-Cross , T-Roc and Tiguan will be much more serious and functional.
Volkswagen has confirmed two Details of the Pick Up Concept that speak of its versatility. The first is that it will count (as expected) with double traction system. Second, it will have a mobile rear panel that will allow the passage of the passenger compartment to the cargo area, and vice versa.
