Volkswagen revealed a new dual-cab, short bed pickup truck concept today based off its seven-seater Atlas SUV, called the Atlas Tanoak. Like the regular Atlas, the Tanoak uses VW's MQB platform, as well as the company's VR6 engine, producing 276 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque in this application. Power is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission andVolkswagen's 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

From the front, the Atlas Tanoak resembles VW's recently-revealed Atlas Cross-Sport concept, with LED headlights that span the entirety of the grille. The company says everything is new from the B-pillar back, sporting a bed that measures 67.1 inches long, 57.1 inches wide, with a total length of 214.1 inches (that's five inches longer than the shortest Ford F-150). The design scheme continues to the rear of the car, with full-length taillight bars. The 0-60 sprint happens in 8.5 seconds.
