A new Volkswagen pickup truck?
Yes, that's right! The German automaker is getting set to launch a pickup in world markets — North America, however, is up in the air.
The vehicle was spied this week undergoing testing. It appears to be mid-size with a quad cab, short box and typical pickup proportions. VW is expected to offer both two- and four-wheel-drive versions.
The pickup has been referred to in name as the Robust and Taro but nothing is confirmed. It will likely be built in Germany and Argentina.
Official news and photos could be released soon, so stay tuned to VolksWatch. We hope VW decides to bring it to the United States and Canada as pickups sell well here.
