2010 Volkswagen Amarok
No it will not be called Robust! Volkswagen has chosen for their new pick-up the Amarok name. It comes from the language of the Inuit, who live in northern Canada and Greenland, and means wolf. The Inuit, one of the Eskimo peoples, regard the wolf as the king of the wilderness, an impressive figure due its strength, robustness, endurance and superiority.
It will be launched as a double-cab pickup with four-wheel drive. The single-cab version will be available at a later date. The pickup features not only state-of-the-art, robust engineering but also efficient engines and current Volkswagen styling.
The new pick-up will be launched first in South America and Central America in Spring 2010, followed by Russia and Europe as well as Africa and Australia.
