Volkswagen Atlas-based pickup truck among options weighed by German automaker

Erb said VW has bolstered its SUV lineup in the U.S. with its Chattanooga-made Atlas, set to hit dealerships this spring, and a bigger Tiguan, also slated to arrive on lots later this year. Volkswagen is looking at its options for possibly filling the pickup truck segment in America, including potentially retooling the new Atlas sport utility vehicle, an official says. "This is one option," said Dr. Matthias Erb, head of product strategy for VW in the United States and who oversees the German automaker's engineering and planning center in Chattanooga. Other options include selling VW's Amarok pickup, which isn't sold now in America, or not offering a truck for the U.S. at all, he said.
