  • VW Tarok Concept Breaks Cover, Previews Global Compact Pickup

Following last week's teaser, VW has fully uncovered its new Tarok pickup concept at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil. VW is quite clear that a production version of this truck is on the way, and the road-going model has "barely any changes" from what's on display here, according to the company.

The concept version of the Tarok also features a panoramic sunroof, which may or may not be part of the final package as it's delivered to dealerships.

The Volkswagen Tarok Concept - revealed in Brazil - is a preview of a production pick-up with flexible load bed and lifestyle credentials.

Power for the concept is a 1.4L 110 PS four-cylinder TSI engine supporting TotalFlex Fuel with the ability to burn pure ethanol or an E22 blend.

In March, she accidentally killed Joshua Lew, one, and Abigail Blumenstein, four, after suffering a seizure behind the wheel. Left, Tony Award-winning actress Ruthie Ann Blumenstein is seen with her daughter, Abigail Blumenstein.

If we are to ask Volkswagen, the Tarok pickup slots somewhere in between an urban SUV and an authentic off-roader. In addition, Tarok equipped digital instrument panel and multimedia system with a touchscreen. The floor space can be extended by opening the tailgate or using the brand new mechanism that allows the bottom of the passenger cab rear panel to be folded down.

The maximum load carrying capacity is claimed to be around one tonne. The suck-squeeze-bang-blow is sent to all four wheels by a six-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter.

Currently, Volkswagen's only real pick-up offering is the Amarok, but the Tarok is created to offer a pick-up with more lifestyle credentials; a ideal blend of size, convenience and ability, making it nearly a family vehicle, just one with load-lugging chops too. A 2.0-litre TDI is also confirmed for the production model but that will come later.

One of a special five-meter pickup will be folding the lower part of the rear wall of the cockpit: with its help it is possible to increase the useful field of loading for transportation of long goods.
