Ford has just presented his new ranger as a future volume pick-up for all men, there is a tentative view of the upcoming VW Amarok from Hanover. In 2022 he rolls to the dealers – on a technical basis of the new ranger.

Pick Ups are a gigantic market worldwide, but in Europe the off -road vehicles with the large loading area have been struggling for decades. Again and again there were more or less serious attempts from various manufacturers to come into business in Europe. For example, Mercedes already offered the first generation of its G-Class as a commercial vehicle with an open loading area and the original Land Rover Defender has also been a rustic pick up for the army for year and day.

Pickups: Not in XXL format in Europe

Since the mighty full-size-pick-ups such as Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado or RAM 1500, unlike in the United States, are only sold in homeopathic doses of importers in Europe, the supposed pick-up medium class is usually the end.

For years the Ford Ranger has been the bestseller as a small brother of the US mass model F-15. Although the current generation is in the run and is faced with the replacement, there was a Europe -wide sales record of 45 in 2020.000 vehicles, which means a market share of almost 40 percent. Competitors such as the Mercedes X-Class, the Renault Alaskan or the VW Amarok (at least in Europe) have now been removed from the market and so models such as the Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi L200 or an ISUZu D-MAX can still be bought.

Ford Ranger becomes a VW Amarok

The new generation of the Ford Ranger, especially in Australia, comes to the customers in mid -2022 and there should be a brother at the end of the year. The sister model comes from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and is said to have the name Amarok on the large tailgate again. Until its attitude in Europe, the VW Amarok was manufactured at the Hanover plant and the Argentine Pacheco. The upcoming generation should become a real Volkswagen, which should become difficult in view of the technical relationship to the new Ford Ranger. At least with the design, however, there will be real VW genes.

The upcoming Ford Ranger will roll off the assembly line from spring 2022 and a little later in South Africa. The European versions of Ford Ranger and VW Amarok come from the Silverton / South Africa plant.

Six cylinder as a power option

The new ranger chassis offers a 50 millimeter wheelbase compared to the previous model and a 50 millimeter wider track. The new vehicle structure of the front section creates a larger installation space under the bonnet for the use of a six-cylinder diesel in V-shape and later the following electrification.

In addition to a two-liter base diesel with four cylinders, which is optionally offered as a hand switch or automatic version with six levels, there is a stronger four-cylinder double turbo and as a top model the long-term V6 diesel with three liters of displacement, the mandatory The well-known ten-speed automatic is linked.

To assume that the stronger ranger variant with the same three-liter diesel is offered, which is also offered on request in the big brother Ford F-150 and does 250 PS / 597 Nm here. Depending on the engine variant, the new Ford Ranger is either a permanent all -wheel drive mode with a switchable all -wheel drive or for the stronger versions.

This should all also apply to the upcoming VW Amarok, which was recently only offered with a 272 hp V6 diesel, or that is further offered in the southern hemisphere of Argentine production. However, after Volkswagen also increasingly rely on petrol engines and plug-in hybrids during his new T7 transporter, it can be assumed that the Hanoverians will not only present their next amarok generation with high-torque fusses.

  1. @Bouman
    100%consent ! The whole thing is probably because some here actually believe, ! … 100%consent ! The whole thing is probably because some here actually believe that one could actually influence/change the world climate from here. In addition, the radicals and bullets who believe that all Germans must be traveling with mini cars, electric cars or bicycles ! Obviously, the laws of a free market economy are not known ?! Well, the buyer will decide, not even the grievances in e-care….

  2. why?
    Why can’t many people accept that there are wishes that are beyond their own wishes? Why does everything have to be inflated to a ideological question? To demonstrate the lack of their own importance, kindness and intelligence? So basically everything you accuse the SUV and pick-up drivers? Nobody is forced to buy such a vehicle. And if someone makes it happy, why should you deny him that? All vehicles that come onto the market today are at most environmentally friendly. Many combustion engines, including SUV and pick ups, significantly more than electric vehicles. So why the hatred of other preferences? Because these haters are deeply dissatisfied with their own existence and others need to look down? Live and let live!

  3. who needs
    Anyone who needs a small truck (z.B. Stonemason, landscape nurse etc.) can’t take anything else. But if such a truck is used for the posing with a wannabe-large city farmer, a part is more than silly. But some also need something like that for their sick psyche.

  4. Nothing helped?
    Thought VW wanted to transform into a pure electric manufacturer and now something like that? SUVs are bad for the environment, but a pickup? Who needs something like that, outside he is farmer and even there are probably other options…..

  5. Pickups are required
    According to the Tesla that the cybertruck already has 1.5 million pre -orders, other providers also want to have something from the cake.

  6. Rarely laughed so much
    You mean the cyberruck from which not even Elon Musk knows when he really comes? No one needs the bowl. But even if it is delivered, the quantities are a lousy joke to what the Big Three in the United States has been selling to pick ups, for a hundred years.

  7. consequence ?
    Where is the e-wave here that is hyped at VW so media ? Has nothing to say in the case of pick-ups ? It shows how consistently your favorite topic is actually being followed at VW. You could also do the whole thing as "Lying" describe…..

  8. Realistic
    The right word is realistic. In the United States, one of the largest car markets in the world, you don’t get far without a pickup and full -size SUV! And so it looks in most world areas, also. Just because the EU dreams of a car -free world (ALP) and as an intermediate step the non -mass electromobility favors, nobody outside of their limits is interested.
