Volkswagen Ford Pickup Truck Confirmed?

By  | 

There were already talks about Volkswagen and Ford possibly working on a new pickup truck together and now it was reported that Volkswagen has already signed a deal to make that happen.

Volkswagen and Ford originally got together to talk about working on a few commercial vehicles together. That then extended to include electric and autonomous cars are well.

While Ford has not made any official announcement yet, Volkswagen has announced that they have signed a contract with Ford to work on a successor for their Volkswagen Amarok pickup truck. The truck could get the platform from the Ford Ranger.

Collaboration like this would help reduce the development cost of the truck significantly. Hopefully, more details will be announced soon as the Volkswagen commercial vehicles chief executive Thomas Sedran did say that talks with Ford will conclude in a few monh time.
