8: Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak
Volkswagen aficionados have been clamoring for a pickup truck from the company for decades. VW does sell pickup trucks around the world, just not here in America. Since importing one can be a pain in the behind the best we can hope for is a release here. The Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak was an interesting concept that seemed to look similar to the Ford Raptor in its design. However, VW has remained eerily quiet about a release and it left drivers wondering.
Now would be a better time than ever to release a full-fledged pickup truck, and yet nothing from VW. America is a difficult market to break into, but Honda has had a successful run with the Ridgeline and Ford has introduced the compact Maverick. We have to wonder if the Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak will ever be a reality or if it was just an illusion from the company.
