Hello to all of my readers, just a reminder if you haven’t already done so to sign up for the newsletter. I send out quarterly reminder emails and if any real news related to the Amarok in Canada becomes available, I will send it out immediately.
Nothing really new has come out on the Canadian front, there have been a couple of sitings of Amaroks in the US at the plant in Tennessee and at a dealership in Michigan. There was also news that the VWoA is considering a VW pickup for the American market, but that the Amarok is too small.
I haven’t heard anything from anyone that went to any of the Canadian Autoshows as to if the VW representatives had much to say. I was thinking about going to the Toronto Autoshow, but I was a bit too busy. I did manage to get to the Ottawa autoshow, but other than mostly dealer reps, there are not many people from Corporate at the show. I did speak to a rep from one Ottawa dealership who indicated that the Amarok might be available for 2016. GM will be re-introducing the Canyon/Colorado for 2015 and a diesel model for 2016. I really hope that the Amarok is available for 2016 to compete with the diesel Canyon.
So here is to hoping that this winter ends soon and that news of the Amarok coming to Canada breaks as well.
