The forthcoming 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak comes with a high level of expectations. VW’s concept looks promising and now everyone is expecting one astonishing pickup truck to hit the roads. Atlas Tanoak is a mid-size pickup truck that will arrive in one-year time. It offers a stylish appearance and it looks very modern, even from the inside.

Clearly, the truck is based on the Atlas SUV and it will also carry a name of three species. Atlas Tanoak will be the largest model ever that will ride on the famous MQB architecture. This truck will also offer a powerful V6 unit under the bonnet.

Volkswagen said the arriving truck will be very close to the concept in every possible category. That means the production model will be 214.1 inches long. That is significantly longer than the Atlas SUV model. Interestingly, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak is longer than Honda Ridgeline by 4 inches. On top of that, the truck is 72.6 inches tall and 80.0 inches wide. With such a large dimension, Atlas Tanoak will be the largest model that ever deployed the MQB platform like the Tarok model.

However, Atlas Tanoak will be classified as the mid-size pickup truck. Design-wise, this model will look very stylish. The concept was visible in a crew cab configuration with a shorter bed. We are sure the Volkswagen will offer numerous cab styles. Logically, a truck that is based on an SUV model will surely borrow a thing or two from its sibling. The front fascia comes with a handsome look and standard LED headlight units. The rear end will sport animated taillights and additional LED strips. This truck will ride on a premium 20-inch aluminum wheels.

The concept didn’t show the cabin. For that reason, we are still unsure about most of the details from the inside. The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak will wear the same design language as the Atlas SUV. However, we don’t know if the interior layout will be the same. Whatsoever, we can expect a lot of illuminated features and very modern ambient lighting. As you probably know, the ambient lighting will change the color, depending on the driving mode you opt for.

The infotainment system will be all-new and it will come with a large display. Some of the parts will look very traditional but some parts will surely look futuristic. German automaker likes to combine these two and add a high level of comfort. The cabin will host high-quality materials, no doubt about it. However, leather upholstery and similar premium amenities will be optional. There will be room for five passengers.

No surprises under the hood as the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak will borrow the engine from its SUV predecessor. That means the truck will ride on a 3.6-liter V6 and it will be the only engine option.

Powerful V6 is producing up to 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. It comes with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and the optional 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.

2021 Nissan Frontier side2021 Nissan Frontier Will Get Significant Changes

The mid-size pickup truck will get a futuristic styling. Not many details are available at the moment, but Nissan did confirm a redesign. On top of that, the 2021 Nissan Frontier will grow in size. On top of that, Frontier won’t use new Navara’s platform. Frontier will continue to ride on the existing underpinnings but it will suffer small modifications.

The platform will remain the same in terms of using leaf springs for the rear axle. The exterior will look aggressive and both ends will get significant changes. However, we expect this model to continue with standard 16-inch alloy wheels. Both the grille and headlights will be all-new, along with the taillights. Also, Nissan will introduce new exterior paints.

From the inside, the 2021 Nissan Frontier will get new interior design. The cabin will look subtle and more modern than before. Nissan will most likely borrow some stuff from other company’s models, especially SUVs. The layout will be all-new and we expect a higher level of comfort. On top of that, Nissan promised more practical interior.

We are still not sure which cab configurations will be in the offer. However, King Cab and Crew Cab models are certain. Leather seats will remain optional, along with some other premium amenities. On the other hand, Nissan will focus on the base trim level that will look more upscale than the current model.

Powertrain Changes

The Japanese automaker will offer a new V6 engine. This engine won’t be optional, it will replace the existing 4.0-liter V6. The current engine offers a 5-speed automatic transmission.

However, new V6 will arrive with a 7-speed automatic gearbox. And while the current Frontier is producing 265 HP, the 2021 Nissan Frontier will provide 300 HP.

Towing Capacity and Fuel Rating

New powertrain will also provide a better tow rating, better than the current 6,500 pounds. Also, increased fuel economy rating is another huge plus. With new styling, new engine, and transmission, Frontier is definitely ready for the bigger stage.

One thing that helps Frontier to manage such great sales is its affordable price. Whatsoever, Frontier is the only truck in the mid-size segment that costs below $30,000. The average price for this segment is 32,000.

Now, the 2021 Nissan Frontier will cost slightly higher, but still below $30,000. This pickup will hit the markets in September 2020. It will look to compete with established rivals such as Ford Ranger and new Jeep Gladiator.

For that reason, features like Ford Data Services and Ford Telematics are included. Optionally, F-600 comes with the LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that can support up to ten devices at once. Updated SYNC3 infotainment system comes with a standard 8-inch touchscreen.

Optionally, a 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine is available as well. This turbodiesel engine will get a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

Towing

The Super Duty truck will tow up to 22,000 pounds. This is actually great towing capacity but Ram’s Heavy Duty lineup can tow up to 35,000 pounds. As we mentioned, exact truck details are not available yet. For that reason, we still think the Ford has an ace up the sleeve. The 2020 Ford F-600 will surely deliver better-towing capacity with the optional diesel unit.

2020 Volkswagen Tarok Rides On The Same MQB Platform As The Tanoak Pickup

0

Volkswagen announced its newest Tarok model. It is a compact pickup truck that is already in the production. Tarok will arrive in the last quarter of 2019. Pickup is based on the concept that also carries the name “Tarok”. The 2020 Volkswagen Tarok will look very close to the concept. However, this model is still uncertain for the North American market.

However, automotive giant certainly has big plans for the Tarok. After all, Volkswagen presented the Atlas-based Tanoak concept at the New York Auto Show. Clearly, VW wants to compete at the biggest pickup truck market on the globe. For that reason, we can expect Tarok in the U.S. in the near future.

2020 Volkswagen Tarok Looks Sleek and Sporty

Interestingly, the 2020 Volkswagen Tarok rides on the same MQB platform as the Tanoak pickup model. However, Tarok is dimensionally smaller. Tanoak’s size is closer to the Ranger and Gladiator trucks. On the other hand, Tarok is a compact pickup truck. The bed is 47.5 inches long. That is the smallest bed in the United States.

When it comes to exterior design, Volkswagen promised the same design as on the concept. Of course, that will hardly happen. Tarok won’t feature LED accents up front, surely. The pickup will look handsome and it comes with a Targa-inspired roof bar. The front fascia looks sleek and sporty. To the sides, Tarok looks way too long and low for a regular pickup. Only a four-door variant will be in the offer.

Interior Is Unique

We don’t know anything about the interior design, except the concept. However, Volkswagen said the cabin design will be the same as the concept’s interior. Interestingly, Tarok’s cabin won’t be anywhere near the same as the Tanoak’s cabin. Volkswagen will provide a fully digital gauge cluster. We don’t like the smaller infotainment screen. The rest of the competition is offering significantly larger units.

Two-Tone leather upholstery will be optional as well, something we can’t see in the pickup truck segment. Also, leather materials can be found on the dash and door panels. The 2020 Volkswagen Tarok will be very practical. You can fold the rear seats which will provide enough space for a surfboard, easily. The cabin will be very comfortable and modern. However, it is a compact pickup truck, so don’t expect generous legroom.

Powertrain Performance

Volkswagen mentioned only one engine. It is a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This engine comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission and optional 4Motion all-wheel-drive setup. The gasoline engine is providing 150 horsepower and it drinks pure E100 ethanol.

On the other hand, the diesel engine will be optional. A 2.0-liter TDI could be in the offer. This engine meets all of the regulations in Europe and South America. However, if an automaker wants to launch 2020 Volkswagen Tarok in the United States, a more powerful engine is a must.

Unlike the light-duty model, TRX variant will offer an increased suspension by 40 percent.

The design is pleasing and some features are brand-new. However, besides good aerodynamics, suspension and larger tires are the most important. The front grille is completely redesigned and it now delivers better airflow. Hood won’t depart from the hoods on the Ram’s heavy-duty lineup. We can expect plenty of standard equipment. That includes LED lights and plenty of off-road gear.

Interior Features

We like Dodge’s suede game that is especially strong in this one. The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX comes with plenty of suede upholstery. For that reason, the interior is more than pleasant. For an off-road truck, extra grip is important and suede materials are perfect for that. Up front, bucket seats are available, and in the back, the rear bench is available.

The interior design is very modern and subtle for such a rugged pickup truck. You can find additional cloth inserts and all-weather mats. Also, lateral support is great. Besides the comfort and design, Rebel TRX comes with a room for four passengers. On top of that, expect an astonishing list of standard features.

Powertrain Delivers 707 Horsepower

The forthcoming 2021 Ram Rebel TRX will arrive with a powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine. This engine is a re-tuned version of the famous Hellcat powerplant. Rebel TR variant is using the same powertrain that produces 575 HP. However, Rebel TRX will deliver 707 horsepower.

This engine is optimized for the high-speed off-roading. With 707 hp, Rebel TRX will become the most powerful Dodge’s half-ton truck. A TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission is available. Also, TRX will offer numerous driving modes for mud, sand, snow, and Baja. A 4×4 driving system is standard. It looks like the Ford’s Raptor have no chance against such strong figures that Rebel TRX offers.

Price and Release Date

We believe the all-new 2021 Ram Rebel TRX won’t start below $50,000. Whatsoever, the price will be closer to the $60,000. The off-road pickup truck will hit the dealerships in the first quarter of 2021.
