The German vehicle company says the Tarok has "the versatility of a cleverly designed five-metre pick-up" with foldable rear seats and rear panel to fit larger, heavier items in the tray, with a load rating of around one-tonne.
VW's press blurb says the brand will "certainly" offer a mass-produced version of the concept in Brazil, "with barely any changes".
The most notable thing about the Tarok Concept truck is its unique bed configuration.
The Tarok concept continues with the success story of the Saveiro which began back in 1983 in South America.
Underneath the Tarok Concept's bonnet sits a 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine with 148bhp, which can, in Brazil, be powered by either pure ethanol, or an ethanol-petrol blend.
José Carlos Pavone, Head of Design Volkswagen do Brasil, revealed the pick-up concept. If you haven't guessed already, the Tarok is more of a lifestyle-oriented pick-up rather than being an out-and-out workhorse, although it'll to the occasional heavy lifting with its one tonne maximum payload. The TSI engine in the Tarok Concept is also combined with a 6-speed automatic gearbox and permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive. Owners can tumble the back seats and then fold the lower rear cab panel forward, while the tailgate can also form an extension on the other end. The dashboard is dominated by a body-coloured strip of plastic which encompasses a "Virtual Cockpit" digital IP, touchscreen infotainment and vents for the climate control.
Speaking of the bed, the Tarok's defining feature is the variable loading area that communicates with the cabin. Now, that is out of the way, we are interested in knowing which other market Tarok Concept will arrive. It means that users can accommodate longer items using the space provided.
