Volkswagen Tarok pickup revealed

VW Tarok Concept Breaks Cover, Previews Global Compact Pickup

The Tarok Concept can support a payload capacity of almost a ton.

Following last week's teaser, VW has fully uncovered its new Tarok pickup concept at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil.

As we mentioned in the earlier article, it features a relatively small tray (compared to the likes of the larger Amarok), but has an innovative "variable loading area" that can be extended thanks to a folding rear panel in the back of the cabin.

José Carlos Pavone, Head of Design Volkswagen do Brasil, revealed the pick-up concept.

Falcons flex offensive muscles, blow out Washington 38-14
The Falcons iced the win over the Redskins by holding the ball for 10 minutes in the fourth quarter, when Washington didn't score. They'll be on the road this week to play the Washington Redskins on Sunday, and their away-game-reputation precedes them.

While there is no news of the Volkswagen Tarok making it our shores, we think it could be VW's contender in the steadily growing lifestyle pickup segment in India that's now dominated by the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross. The floor space can be lengthened by opening the tailgate or using a mechanism that allows the bottom of the passenger cab rear panel to be folded down (you essentially temporarily sacrifice the rear seats).

One of Tarok's cleverest design features is the adaptability of its loadbin area, which can be stretched from 1.2- to 1.8m in length.

The Tarok is also a proper one-tonner, or at least close to it, with VW claiming that the maximum load is "around one tonne".

The interior indicates a new way forward for Volkswagen in the pick-up segment, with its primarily digital design.

The invitation to Christmas dinner has also fuelled rumours that Doria Ragland may move to London, from her home in Los Angeles. Instead, the royals give silly gifts - one year, Middleton reportedly even gave Harry a plastic Grow Your Own Girlfriend kit.

While a concept for now, VW's promising the Tarok will change little when a production version goes on sale in Brazil in the near future. This crossbar surrounds a glass-covered Infotainment system, digital air conditioning controls and a Digital Cockpit, which together form the main cockpit elements with all displays and controls on a single visual and operational axis.

Under the bonnet the Tarok concept features a transversely-mounted 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making 110kW of power.

According to the automaker, the production model will start out with the 2.0-liter turbo diesel known as TDI, as well as the 2.0 TSI.
