When I think of VW as a brand, the last thing in the world that I think about is them coming out with a truck. Seriously, I think that VW was stuck with cars and some SUV’s, however a pickup truck I did not think was in their future. Boy, was I wrong. The Volkswagen’s Robust Pickup Truck is actually a brand new truck for Volkswagen and it is actually made in Brazil exclusively for the South American market.
The reasoning behind the Volkswagen’s Robust Pickup Truck? Well, it is so that this particular brand can compete with the likes of Fiat Strada and also the Chevy Montana. For 2010, the Volkswagen’s Robust Pickup Truck is actually going to have a bunch of power behind it, as it comes with a flex-fuel 1.6-liter engine that produces about 101 HP on gasoline or 104 ethanol, which is a very popular fuel in South America.
You want a new pickup truck by VW? You will have to import it – however it will definitely be worth it! I can promise you that!
