2010 Volkswagen Robust

Volkswagen is preparing to take on Toyota! The company decided is about time to have a serious competitor on the market, this is why they will launch the Robust pick-up in 2010. The Robust will be the first pick-up Volkswagen ever had (not including the "Taro" that was actually a rebadged Toyota Hilux).

Volkswagen Robust

The 2010 will be offered on markets from Africa and South America, but no news about being sold on the North American market yet.

The Robust will be offered in a wide number of versions, both single and double cab. The top version will be a FWD version, but Volkswagen will also offer a cheaper 2WD version.

Under the hood of the new Robust there will be a wide choice of common-rail diesel engines and a V6 petrol engine.

VW will produce the Robust in Argentina aiming towards the South American and South African markets. While the Robust won’t be sold in North America there’s a possibility that VW will bring a high-end version to selected European markets.

It might look silly but, because it’s a truck they should be able to throw a diesel in there, like the VW 2.0L in the Jeep Compass, and be able to easily pass emission regulations. It’d be the only small diesel truck in the U.S. People would scoop these things up in droves so long as they didn’t charge us out the like with the Dodge Sprinter or the Jeep Compass CRD.

do you even no what your talking about

WoW! I can’t wait for this one to hit the market! I was going to purchase an Elantra SE, but now I must have the Elantra Touring!!!
