9080923_001_Mini7L2Volkswagen Amarok   Name 2010 Announced for New Pickup Truck

I like this sturdy tough macho looking VW pick-up truck.Volkswagen will supply its upcoming pickup to the 2010 Dakar Rally as an official event vehicle. A total of 35 Amarok units are to be used, with 20 going to the organiser and 15 scheduled for press and shuttle services.Nope...the Amarok has nothing in common with the HiLux. You are probably mixing it up with VWs first pick up, the Taro, which was actually a license-built Toyota HiLux.While details are scarce, the Amarok will be offered in a variety of different configurations. The double cab model (pictured) will be launched first, with a single cab version set to debut shortly thereafter. As with most pickups, consumers will be able to buy an Amarok with two- or four-wheel drive.
Power will come from a new-generation of common-rail diesel engines, which should combine stellar fuel efficiency (for a truck) with modest CO2 emissions

What is going on with VWs naming department? First the Toerag, now the Anorak.
It looks quite sexy for a pick up and looks count to self employed tradesmen who are "stuck" with a pickup but because it may also function as a family vehicle don't wish to sacrifice style.
And the Baywatch thing could happen - the UK RNLI Lifeguards up and down the country's surf beaches currently use HiLuxes for beach patrols if I remember; a swap to Anoraks needn't be out of the question if they're priced well.No need for screaming, maloparac. Nevertheless, it's utter bullsh*t. The Amarok is an independent VW construction from bumper to bumper. Sure, VW might have used some HiLux-Bodies to disguise their mules (btw: that's what mules are normally) and perhaps also for benchmarking, but nothing more. But if you can show me some proof, you're welcome...

Built at VW's Pachero plant (near Buenos Aires, Argentina), the Amarok will be launched in Central- and South America in early 2010. Six months later, the truck will be offered to Russian and European consumers. Despite confirmation that Australia and Africa will get the new model, Volkswagen has remained tight-lipped about the possibility of North American sales.
