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).
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.
