A Capable Volkswagen Pickup Truck Concept

When you shop for a car here at Executive Volkswagen of North Haven, it’s easy to find a particular kind of vehicle. We have unique hatchbacks, stylish sedans, and capable SUVs on our lot right now, and one of them is perfect for you. One thing we don’t sell is a pickup truck, but the Volkswagen brand recently gave us a glance at what that could look like at the New York Auto Show. The Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak concept is an innovative take on the pickup truck.

You probably guessed based on its name, but this new Volkswagen concept is based on the Volkswagen Atlas SUV. It’s the first truck to be built on the MQB platform and it’s actually quite a bit longer than the Volkswagen Atlas is. It would fit nicely into the midsize pickup truck segment. Another thing you’ll notice about this concept is that it sits higher above the ground, which means that it has some off-road aspirations. That factor and a spacious cargo bed could make this model ideal for outdoor adventures.

The Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak looks a bit more rugged than the SUV its based on thanks to some new headlights, a redesigned bumper, and a raised engine hood. It looks more dynamic than the typical pickup truck. Inside you’ll find room for five passengers and some advanced technology, including the Digital Cockpit display. This concept truck also offers some serious power, with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that can put out more than 270 horsepower. If this concept becomes a production model, we’re sure that many drivers will be taking an interest in it.
