Often rumored but never coming to fruition, Volkswagen is once again considering a pickup truck for the North American market.
The Volkswagen Amarok originally debuted in 2009, and the German automaker had discussed the prospects of bringing it to America. Ultimately, the decision was made to not bring the Amarok despite its success in other markets.
But the pickup market has changed since 2009, with more midsized entries into the segment, prompting Volkswagen to once again mull over a truck for the North American market. This time around however, it might not be the Amarok but rather a larger offering as Volkswagen believes the Amarok is too small for the U.S. Then again, Volkswagen could consider making the Amarok larger to suit the needs of the American consumer.
