Volkswagen’s move into the utility market is certainly no ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ although it will be named Amarok, which means ‘wolf’ in the Inuit language.
In August the Amarok will become the first pickup by a European volume manufacturer when it is unveiled in South America.
The South American launch is set for early 2010, with the Amarok coming to Europe in the northern hemisphere summer.
With the Amarok, Volkswagen is seeking to enter global pickup markets dominated for the most part by Japanese manufacturers.
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles already presented an impressive concept truck at last year’s IAA Commercial Vehicles, providing a taste of the brand’s new fourth model.
The Amarok will be produced in Argentina at Volkswagen’s “Pacheco” plant near Buenos Aires.
