Apr 4, 2018

Making its world debut last week at the New York International Auto Show, Volkswagen’s Atlas Tanoak pickup truck concept is proof that the German manufacturing giant is looking to grab a slice of the American truck-obsessed market.

On the surface, the concept is eerily similar another best-selling foreign short-bed pickup. However, under the hood is a respectable 3.6 liter V6 capable of an output of 276 HP and 266 lb-ft of torque. Power is provided down via an eight-speed automatic transmission and their 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system with Active Control. It’s built upon Volkswagen’s award-winning MQB platform, boasts fully digitalized instrumentation and controls, sport seating, a movable cargo rail of the bed, and looks slated for production at their Chattanooga, Tennessee location here in the near future.
