The next-gen Ford Ranger was unveiled a couple of weeks back, so it’ll soon be time for Volkswagen to follow suit with its all-new Amarok based on the same platform. First, though, VW has released some slightly odd rhino-based sketches of both the exterior and interior. Because of course it has.

Apparently, the Amarok has been used for wildlife preservation in South Africa since 2011, and VW’s commercial vehicles branch is a partner of the Wilderness Foundation Africa (WFA). Hence the rhinos.
