10. 2013 VW Amarok 508,348 Mexican Pesos ($40,948)
Volkswagen made it on a list of Top 10 trucks? ¿Por qué? Like practically every other vehicle in its lineup the German automaker’s pickup is saddled with a bizarre name, though it’s no stranger than Routan, Touareg or Scirocco. If you haven’t decided to Bing it yet, Amarok means “wolf” in the Inuit language.
This truck is not sold in the United States, though more than a few have been spotted on our soil. Mexican yuppies can treat themselves to a heaping helping of German engineering. ¡Olé! The range-topping Highline 4×4 model features a variety of truck staples including running boards, a diesel engine and manual gearbox. Of course it also benefits from restrained styling and a Prussian sense of order. Its base MSRP is nearly $41,000. Luxury-car pricing, what’s more German than that?
