Volkswagen has unveiled a new pick-up truck concept at the ongoing Sao Paulo Motor Show 2018, touted as the most advanced of its kind in the 5-metre long pick-up truck segment. Primarily designed for the Brazilian market, where pick-up trucks are quite popular, the Tarok Concept pick-up previews innovations which could make double cab pick-ups more versatile than ever.
The innovation here comes in the form of a variable loading area to improve utility. A folding panel below the rear windshield combined with flat folding rear seats results in an extended loading area for long-and-low luggage, making it more versatile than traditional dual-cab pick-ups.
The Tarok also previews the company’s new exterior and interior design philosophy on a pick-up truck. Exterior design elements include:
- Tiguan-like sleek headlamp cluster, which has been exaggerated for the concept
- LED DRLs on the front bumper
- Clamshell bonnet
- BFGoodrich mud-terrain tyres
- Three-tone paint with dark roof and silver C-pillar for a targa-top like look
- Panoramic sunroof
- Full-LED taillamps
- Flat-foldable rear seats with a rugged back cover which matches loading bay bed design
- Tailgate interior panel matches loading bay bed design
The Tarok Concept also previews a new petrol/ethanol engine which can run on 100 per cent ethanol, in accordance with Brazilian TotalFlex fuel norms. The 1.4-litre, 4-cylinder, TSI motor develops 150PS of maximum power and is paired with a 6-speed automatic gearbox along with a permanent '4Motion' AWD system.
When launched, the Volkswagen Tarok will also be offered with 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbo-diesel motor also developing 150PS of maximum power. Volkswagen says the Tarok will be a global model, which makes us believe it may be launched in India too. Would you like to see the Tarok make its way to India?
