The Volkswagen is one of the leading auto manufacturers today. The company boasts of several remarkable and famous car models including the popular Amarok Pickup that was first introduced into the market back in 2011. Initially, the automaker was quite comfortable with this vehicle but today things have changed. It seems consumer’s preferences are shifting towards big size crossovers. Due, to this Volkswagen, has launched plans, of releasing a new SUV version of the VW Amarok by the year 2020. There is very little information regarding the upcoming model though consumers should expect impressive interior and exterior styling. The 2020 VW Amarok SUV will be constructed based on the current Amarok Pickup truck, which is very popular and is recording impressive sales record in the auto market.
2020 VW Amarok SUV – Based on the Current Amarok Pickup Truck:

The front end appears more modern compared to the truck with a new grille, thinner LED headlights, and VW logo at the center. The new front bumper is quite massive with elegant designing to fit larger air intakes for better engine cooling.
The car boasts of high aerodynamic power due to its light weight chassis designing. This will be achieved through the use of lightweight aluminum materials that lowers the overall car’s weight hence improving on its speed and fuel efficiency. You should also expect LED fog lights surrounded by chrome detailing. The rear end is completely different since this model is an SUV and not a truck.
