So it appears that VW Canada is starting to push out some of their 2014 models on their website, we can only assume that more models will follow shortly, I’m not holding out hopes for a 2014 Amarok. One of the vehicles that I’m current watching is the Tiguan, although it isn’t an Amarok, I still want to be prepared with a short list of vehicles in case I decide to replace my current vehicle in a hurry.
There are a few stories, such as this one from VW North, that indicate that we should be getting for 2015, so that means another year of waiting and then hopefully we will be a year closer to the Amarok too.
Recently I have seen a post or two on Facebook go unacknowledged by VW Canada with people requesting the Amarok. I recently emailed Thomas Tetzlaff, Media Relations Manager at VW of Canada, and the email went unanswered, previously he responded quickly. This could just mean that they are busy with other things or any of a number of other things.
I did get an email from a reader who indicated that they had emailed VW Corporate in Germany looking for information. Here is a paragraph from the response dated the 22nd of August:
We regret to inform you that presently we are unable to provide you with launch dates of the Amarok. However, as soon as a detailed schedule becomes available, we will inform our entire Sales & Marketing organization.
What can we take from this? I read it as the Amarok is coming or at least they are considering it, but the exact timeline hasn’t been determined.
I guess we will just have to wait a bit longer, maybe harass VW a bit more looking for information.
Cheers and thanks for reading.
