If you’re a driver near Culver CIty who likes the sophistication and engineering of Volkswagen vehicles but has pickup utility needs, then there could soon be reason to celebrate. The Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak is a Volkswagen Pickup concept that recently debuted at the New York Auto Show, and a production model could be in the works and coming to your VW dealership in Santa Monica soon.

About the Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak

Based on the same design and platform as the Volkswagen Atlas — which already serves up impressive towing and performance — this Volkswagen Atlas pickup concept riffs on VW style to accommodate drivers in the American market who need truck capabilities. While the Atlas Tanoak is a concept model right now without a full list of features and specs, here are some of the important specs we have so far:

  • 214.1-inch length

  • 128.3-inch wheelbase

  • 50.4-inch width

  • 9.8-inch ground clearance

  • 3.6L V6 engine with 276 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque

As of this time, Volkswagen hasn’t released any official towing or payload numbers for the Atlas Tanoak, but we can likely expect it to meet or surpass the 5,000-pound towing capacity of the current VW Atlas SUV.

VW Atlas Family

It appears that Volkswagen in in the midst of developing plans for a full lineup of Volkswagen Atlas models. In addition to the current midsize SUV and VW Atlas Tanoak concept, there is also a 5-seater concept version of the Atlas called the Atlas Cross Sport, which is expected to be released for production sometime next year.
