Dr. Erb knows this. "Body-on-frame trucks are a protected market," he stated, which means unibody construction could be VW’s only realistic option, assuming a truck program will proceed at all. Because of the Atlas’ size, it’s totally possible to turn it into an all-wheel-drive truck, but the question is whether or not VW should. And, for the record, Dr. Erb made it clear, once again, that VW will not bring the overseas market Amarok mid-size pickup to the US. Not now. Not ever.
