German`s carmaker, VW, will finally put in production its Tarok concept that was introduced two years ago. Some reports suggest that the release date of the 2022 VW Tarok could happen this year. However, at this point, we are still waiting for the official statement. From what we heard, the new Tarok will not significantly different from the concept model.
This truck, like many of VWs SUVs, will use an MQB architecture. Besides this model, VW already has a few pickup trucks in its line. It has the Amarok and Atlas Tanoak models. Among them, the most popular and the latest one is the Amarok.
2022 VW Tarok Design
When it comes to the design, we can only rely on the concept model that was introduced two years ago. First of all, the German manufacturer will use its famous MQB architecture on the 2022 VW Tarok. Overall, the design is attractive, and the all-new truck features compact proportions. The concept version is 197 inches long, and we assume that the production version won’t be much different.
In terms of the styling, the VW Tarok dominates on the front. It features a typical VW layout based on the latest design
language. The same design is present on models like Tiguan and Golf Mk8. However, the all-new Tarok comes with slightly revised LED headlights compared to its siblings.
Comfortable and Upscale Cabin
Inside, the new 2022 VW Tarok will gain the same treatment as the latest Atlas. Generally, you can count on VW’s typical layout, which means practical design and plenty of quality materials. However, unlike the Atlas SUV that comes with three rows of seats, the truck offers only two.
However, the cabin is comfortable, and this compact truck has a pretty spacious interior that can host five passengers. Moreover, like the Atlas SUV, the Tarok features a useful digital gauge display and a much bigger 9.2-inch infotainment touchscreen. Interestingly, it comes with a removable Bluetooth speaker in the center console.
2022 VW Tarok Engine Specs
At this moment, there is no official information about the engine of the 2022 VW Tarok. However, from many gossips, South American trucks will come with two engines, and one of them is a diesel one. The most basics version will come equipped with a 1.4-liter TSI gasoline engine, producing a max output of 150 horsepower.
Besides these engines, expect a familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four with 184 horsepower to be available for North American markets. Unlike the Atlas model that has a payload capacity of 1,495 pounds, we know for sure that the payload ability of the Tarok will go beyond 2000 pounds.
Release Date, Price
We expect the new 2022 VW Tarok to debut at the end of the year. On the other side, details about the U.S. models are yet to be revealed. Eider way, the upcoming VW Tarok will be an attractive pickup truck that will introduce more modern styling than its siblings.
As for the pricing, everything between 25.000 to 30.000 dollars is acceptable for such a truck. Of course, we should expect many pickups to be released at that time, but the main one, Hyundai Santa Cruz, is the most closest competitor of the Tarok.
