week we asked you if you’d be in buying a Ford Ranger now the Chevrolet Colorado is finally to our shores. Some of you were that the Ford Ranger and the Colorado are still available about everywhere except the of A, and a number of you said you were in a diesel Ford Ranger, though the size of the truck a bit with the Ford F-150. week we have something on offer: a truck that again has been kept out of has been considered a fairly market, if not the outright birthplace, of trucks. The Volkswagen Amarok.

A few years ago there was some of the Amarok appearing in the U.S. being a prime market for with four wheels, two or doors, and a cargo bed, as close as the Amarok got was Mexico. The is available with a range of diesel engines, ranging in output from 140-180, with a 160-hp 2.0-liter engine. A six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic are available for versions of the truck. The Amarok can be with rear-wheel drive, Volkswagen’s permanent 4Motion drive, or part-time shiftable all-wheel drive. Fuel in the diesel versions ranges the equivalent of 29 mpg combined to 33 mpg combined. and torquey diesel engines are the Amarok’s trump card.

Like the upcoming Chevrolet and the Ford Ranger (the of which is highly unlikely to appear in the U.S.) the Amarok is in single-cab and double-cab form, with a choice of two bed lengths. The and long-bed Amaroks range in from 206.9 inches to inches, which puts within the same neighborhood as the Chevrolet Colorado. Additionally, the is available in single-cab and double-cab form in some markets, payload capacity a respectable pounds.

Depending on level, interior options are though one won’t see all the goodies in the Touareg. After all, is a working truck, though obviously not something that take the Chevrolet Silverado or the SuperDuty head on — a bit too small for that.

The price? In the Mexican market the Amarok with a 140-hp TDI starts at the equivalent of $24,600, and out at approximately $37,600 for the loaded trim, essentially a version just about every The gasoline version in the Mexican runs between $29,623 and So while the price of entry is options do pile up quickly. But diesel engines certainly good on paper, and might even better at the gas pump.
