VW Amarok truck now available in UK, We get nothing and here is why.
VW just announced pricing for the UK spec Amarok pickup truck .Prices start from £16,995 and can go all the way to £21,575. So why dont we get this awesome TDi compact pickup that will give the Tacoma a run for its money? Well blame the government! There is a law known as the “chicken tax” that imposes a 25% tariff on light trucks imported from outside the US, this would force VW to price the truck above its intended market and it wouldn’t sell.
So until the boneheads change their mind there wont be a awesome, full efficient VW truck in your future, such a shame.
