The Volkswagen "Worker" medium truck range

At one time, the Worker was sold in the U.S. market by both Kenworth and Peterbilt as the Mid-Ranger from 1987, until the Kenworth K300 and Peterbilt 270 utilizing a DAF 45 cab were introduced in 2000 (Paccar bought DAF in November 1996).

The cab originated on the VW "LT" light truck, and was later called the VW-MAN G90 cab when the companies jointly produced 6-10 ton G-series trucks from 1979 to 1993.

Well, in Europe VW trucks heavier than 7 tons are ABSOLUTELY unknown. I live in Poland and work as a contractor for VW and haven't seen a VW heavy truck in person yet. I believe reading about them being very popular in Brasil - but in Europe? A VW heavy truck just wouldn't feel right. Many of the medium trucks sold in Brasil as VW are designed in Europe by MAN.

I personally drive a VW van - a Transporter 4. I just love that machine.

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Drove a the KW version of the Worker a bit in the 80s... Was kinda weird to get into the cab and see the same switchgear and such as the VW Rabbit diesel I'd driven to work!

Westport does the frame and axle assemblies, but i do not think they make the axles themselves. When did Mack last assemble their own axles, the 70s or 80s?

I drove a small tilt cab Peterbilt (260?) tractor a while back for Penske Truck Leasing. I opened the door to see the ID tag and it said "Volkswagen do Brazil".

Just for the fun of it, here's some info on Volkswagen's superb new mid-size "Amarok" pickup truck produced by VW's commercial vehicles unit. It's produced in both left- and right-hand drive (These are right-hand drive photos)

This is the 4-door crew cab, the more personal and higher-trimmed version.

With the demise of the Ford Ranger in the U.S. (a stunning new "global" Ford Ranger is sold everywhere else), you'd think VW would bring the Amarok to America to give GM's Canyon/Colorado and Toyota's Tundra some competition. The Amarok is sold just about everywhere, except the U.S. market. The U.S. has a high import tariff on complete trucks (which is why the Ford Transit Connect arrives into the U.S. from Turkey (Ford Otosan) with temporary rear seats fitted so it will be classified as a car upon entry). But VW could add production at its plant in Tennessee.

The 4-door Volkswagen Amarok pickup (continued), with some left-hand drive examples.

The 4-door comes standard with the mid-level "Trimline" package, or the premium "Highline" package.

(I suppose a construction company could special order the "Basic" package).

Needless to say, I'm a fan of the 2.0 liter TDI Biturbo diesel engine. The dual turbo system utilizes one turbo for enhanced low rpm response and a second turbo for increased high rpm power.

Power is 161 horsepower and 295 ft,lb. of torque. Fuel economy is 7.9 liters per 100km, about 30 mpg in combined driving.

The 2-door is promoted as the work truck version of the Amarok.

I like the way a company can can get what's called the "Basic" package. a competively priced no-nonsense work truck. Or, you can add some comfort with the mid-level "Trendline" package.

This is an honest-to-goodness truck with body-on-frame construction and rear (comfort) leaf springs.

They say the ladder chassis frame and standard heavy-duty suspension allows for a 1.2 (metric) ton payload - that's 2,646 pounds.

Neoplan does belong to MAN, which is majority owned by VW. However the VW buses are produced by VW Commercial.

Now when we talk about VW buses, there are two sales channels and four versions. For personal use, there's the Multivan and the California. For commercial use, the same basic vehicle is marketed as the Transporter and the Caravelle (the Tranporter being the basic trim level work truck).

And then going larger, the VW Crafter was introduced in 2006. It's a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with a VW powerrtrain and different fascia. It's produced under contract by Benz for VW and has been quite successful.

In the automotive section of the "Boston Sunday Globe" on March 3, 2013 there is an article about VW and its plans to surpass GM and Toyota as the

world's largest car manufacturer. The VW product manager said that VW has no plans to produce a pickup truck for the U.S. (he said this shortly before

leaving VW to work for Chevrolet). Their feeling is that American pickup truck owners are extremely brand loyal so it would be tough to break into the

market. I saw a new Ford Ranger in St. Maarten last year; it looks a lot like the VW pickup. Maybe when it's time to replace my Ranger I can import one

from SXM (that wouldn't be too expensive, would it?).

It's unbelievable that Ford refuses to sell the impressive global Ford Ranger in the U.S. market because they feel it would steal sales away from the massive F-150. These trucks appeal to two entirely different customer segments.

The individual looking at a mid-size pickup specifically does not want the bulk of a full-size pickup. If Ford won't sell a mid-size pickup, customers will go to GM who is all too happy to accomodate them with the GMC Canyon/Chevrolet Colorado.

2012 is the last year for the GM Canyon and Colorado. They are working with Isluzu to design a new pickup. BTW, the Canyon and Colorado were designed by Isluzu. Ford nor Dodge make a small pickup anymore. I owned several S10s and loved them. My last "small" pickup was a Dodge Dakota with 4.7 V8 and 5 speed manual transmission....nice truck.
