2022 Volkswagen Amarok teased: Ford Ranger-based ute coming

A first look at the upcoming 2022 Volkswagen Amarok has been handed down, hinting at a meaner design for its second generation. Developed in partnership with Ford, the new Amarok ute will take most of its engineering and architecture from the Ranger project – while Volkswagen takes the lead on vans for both companies. The Amarok's familiar boxy look appears set to continue with the new model, while the front end takes its cues from models like the Tiguan and T-Roc SUVs.

Goodbye Mercedes-Benz X-Class, we hardly knew you...

Sometimes the best-laid plans go awry, and I’d never want to discourage a car manufacturer from rolling the dice and having a crack. But when it comes to automotive miscalculations, the short life of Mercedes-Benz Vans’ X-Class pickup has to rate pretty highly on the list, and serve as a lesson to others. As revealed this week, the X-Class will be axed globally from May this year, less than three years after its global reveal and two after its introduction to the vital Australian market.
