The VW naming department is probably awesome. We're betting it goes like this: "Let's do drugs and read local-language editions of Encyclopedia Brittanica." And that's how the Inuit word for "wolf" came to name this new truck, the VW Amarok.


The VW Amarok is officially slated to debut on the December 15th, but here's a sneak peak courtesy of These pics show off Vee-Dub's latest pick-em-up which will be sold in places with names that don't start with "United" and end in "States." It'll debut with a 2.0-liter common-rail diesel with 163 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque but will later get a second diesel with 122 HP and 250 lb-ft of torque. Still, it's no Rabbit Pickup. []
