There is no word yet as to when will Volkswagen officially reveal the five-seat Atlas in production form. Both vehicles share the same wheelbase because they are riding on Volkswagen's modular MQB platform.
VW plans to expand the MQB-based Atlas into a full lineup, VW Group of America chief Hinrich J. Woebcken reminded us at the NY show, and the Atlas Cross Sport isn't the full extent of the Atlas' breadth.
The Tanoak appears to be targeting the heart of the pickup market, with a dual-cab, short-bed configuration.
"Tanoak draws from the heritage of American pickup trucks while being more of a lifestyle vehicle", said Hinrich Woebcken, president of VW of North America. The Atlas Tanoak has a more rugged appearance to match its off-road capabilities with a raised bonnet and rugged underbody protection, which houses a centrally mounted winch and carabiner.
As we're writing this, Volkswagen has not given its new truck a name, nor has released additional information.
The Cross Sport has a 3.6-liter, 6-cylinder engine but the concept adds a lithium-ion battery and a pair of two electric motors.

It can be a real struggle for some players to handle the move. "I am already looking at next year to see can he do it again". The Catalans are odds-on to reclaim the title while many consider them to be favourites for the Champions League as well.

Fifty-four years after the Johnson administration imposed a 25-percent tariff on commercial trucks and pickups in retaliation for Germany's "Chicken Tax", the chief target of that truck tariff, Volkswagen, might just be ready to re-enter the USA market. Toyota leads, with sales of nearly 200,000 Tacomas a year ago.
This concept would be a large midsize pickup. In the 3D view, the user has the option of configuring an individual display layout, which can be done on three or more levels that hover above one another in virtual space. Honda sold about 35,000 Ridgelines previous year. Some sales growth could come from people moving down from full size pickups or up from SUVs.
The Honda Ridgeline is embarking upon round two of its unique social experiment, attempting to clearly demonstrate how much beefy looks do or don't matter to pickup truck buyers. Honda sold almost 35,000 Ridgeline pickups past year.
The production version of the VW Atlas Cross Sport will launch in the U.S.in 2019.
The Tanoak's cabin diverges further from the Atlas. Tow hooks are built into the rear bumper.
The handles on the rear doors are integrated into the C-pillars while the rear fenders are strongly flared for a properly dynamic look.
The bed is 64.1 in. long and a maximum of 57.1 in. wide, with 50.4 in. of width available between the wheel wells. Its crew cab accommodates five passengers. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive. The slider was made to be used with work gloves. You've got the digital cockpit and a 10-inch infotainment system.
The Tanoak, by the way, is named for a species of tree native to the West Coast, able to grow up to 135-feet tall.
