Volkswagen offers the Amarok, this handsome mid-size pickup, in the rest of the world and has done so since 2010. VW decided not to bring it to the U.S. at the time, according to Autoblog, because the company thought that it was too small for the U.S. market.

Autoblog also reports, however, that Volkswagen is keeping its eye on the U.S. mid-size truck market and may consider importing it in the future.

Personally, I think this truck with a diesel, manual transmission, true 4-wheel-drive, and a two-speed transfer case would be a nice thing to have.

That’s one vote, VW. I’m sure I’m not the only one. 🙂
