VW’s All-New Pickup Truck Caught!
You’ve seen test mules, spy pictures and a rendering – but here’s a running prototype – and we’re as close as one can possible get (at highway speeds) to the all-new pickup from Volkswagen.
The mid-size truck – this one sporting a crew cab – will be built in Hannover, Germany, as well Argentina, and has been referred to as the Robust. Sources say two-wheel-drive and “off-road capable” 4x4 versions will both be offered! The look appears similar to the current Chevrolet Colorado - angular with pronounced fender flares. Also planned are diesel and gas engine options.
The 2010 Robust will be a global product – but VW is still mum on their plans for U.S. sales, though they 'love' the F-150.
