Volkswagen and Ford previously announced an alliance, through which the two industry giants plan to jointly develop a new platform for their next-generation pickups. Now, it appears that we’re moving closer to seeing the results—specifically VW’s—in their final production forms.
In a recent conference, Volkswagen unveiled the latest sketch of the all-new Amarok that will be sharing its new platform with the Ford Ranger. Not a lot of details were released, but the newest sketch does look closer to a production vehicle rather than a concept. The design is extremely rugged and robust, and the sketch alone looks better than the previous Amaroks already, so that’s something to be excited about.
The next-gen Amarok is set to be unveiled sometime in 2022. You can check out VW’s announcement below:
Frankly, we have high hopes for Volkswagen’s new Ranger-based midsize pickup, so much so that we’re starting to wonder how such a model would fare in the truck-loaded market that is the Philippines. Ford did recently reveal its major investment to build more Rangers, after all, so that should bode well for this Ford-Volkswagen pickup-focused alliance.
What do you think, readers? Do you think Volkswagen Philippines could use a truck like this in its stable?
