Volkswagen presented illustrations of the future Amarok pickup, which will be created in cooperation with Ford and will be largely unified with the Ford Ranger.

This was reported by the press service of the manufacturer. At the annual reporting conference of the commercial division of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, the company shared new information about the future Amarok pickup.

As we have already said, the new product will be created jointly by the concern and their colleagues from Ford. It is planned that the new VW Amarok will be largely unified with the “Ford” Ranger model. Such cooperation will significantly reduce the cost of developing and manufacturing the machine.

Based on the T7 platform, the Amarok will receive its own front end design, made in the corporate style of the German brand. The teaser shows that the car will receive a characteristic radiator lining, into which the headlights are organically implanted, and the massive wheel arches go into the side panels of the front bumper. In the lower part of the front bumper there is a massive protection with an optional winch.

Metal inserts adorn the side sills, the mirrors with built-in “turn signals” have become wider, and a bar with a pair of LED lights has been installed on the roof between the rails. A protective frame is installed behind the cab wall, and spectacular light-alloy wheels are shod in off-road rubber with a “toothy” tread.

According to preliminary information, the new Amarok will receive V6 engines. Specifically, a 2.7-liter twin-turbo petrol engine and a 3.0-liter diesel are expected on the powertrain list.
