VW Tarok Concept
This looks pretty much production ready to me.
As I don’t really see any concept bits on this thing. Except maybe all that LED stuff up front.
(VW already claims the “truck” will be on sale in Brazil next year with almost no changes. )
This is mainly for South America, where small pickups are popular.
But I think this could really work anywhere. And especially here in the US.
I mean, there is nothing wrong with a compact, efficient pick-up with 4 doors and an expandable bed.
The concept is powered by a 1.5 Liter engine with 150HP. So very similar to the Jetta. As it uses the same platform.
This seems ready to go. And it might become VW’s biggest US market mistake is they don’t send it over here.
The biggest problem might still be the US tariff of 25% on all imported light trucks under that old and antiquated “Chicken Tax” from 1964.
Unless this comes from Mexico. (Since VW’s US plant seems to be at full capacity with the Atlas and Passat)
