Next Amarok to use Ranger platform

Ford, News, Volkswagen

Volkswagen have announced that they’ve signed an initial agreement with Ford, regarding the development of the next generation of their Amarok pick-up. This comes after the news earlier this year that the two giants would work together on the future development of commercial vehicles, autonomous driving and mobility services.

One of the main targets of the alliance was to reduce production costs to enable both brands to be able to offer better value for their customers in all sectors. And using the platform for the Ford Ranger in the development of the next generation Amarok would certainly help Volkswagen save on costs.
