Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak Pickup On The Table?

By  | 

We got to see the Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak concept at the New York Auto Show and as much as we were impressed by it, most people assume that it was just another concept that would never make it out but it looks like we might actually be getting the pickup from Volkswagen.

Volkswagen has been dropping hints about their Volkswagen Atlas crossover but besides that, they also seem to be suggesting that the Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak Concept might be happening as well. The Tanoak will be coming in with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that will be offering about 272hp and 266lb ft of torque. The engine will also be mated to an eight-speed transmission.

If the Tanoak pickup truck does come in, most people think that it will be competing with models like the Honda Ridgeline but the Tanoak will have an advantage of having a low-range transfer case which could help it stand out.
