2015 looks like a bright year for pickup trucks and the war among the manufacturers is warming up with top dogs like Ford being forced to make a run for their money by newbies in the world of trucking like Volkswagen. Let’s have a closer look at what could be the two best coming trucks. The 2015 Ford Ranger VS 2015 Volkswagen Amarok.
Ford has had a long running relationship with pickup lovers and the success of this relationship was crowned in 2013 when ford won an award for the best pickup truck and its back it again. The Ford ranger will boast a 2.2L 16 valve 4 cylinder ecoboost engine that will be able to put out 147.5 hp at 3,700 rpm and 375Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm in its basic model even though this will have variations depending on what the pickup is intended for.
On the other hand there is the 2015 Volkswagen Amarok. Since its inception into the market, it has fared on pretty well. In their current design VW will come in an improved 2.0 liter TDI engine that is capable of delivering up to 180hp and 420Nm of torque. With that it is safe to say that the VW may have toppled the Ford in terms of performance.
On the interior, the standard double cab of the 2015 Volkswagen Amarok will be able to carry five passengers in its classic design that includes other equipment like the 6 inch colored touch screen, rear and front parking sensors with leather seats that come with heaters as well as some cutting edge safety features.
On the other hand, in the 2015 Ford Ranger VS 2015 Volkswagen Amarok battle we have the Ford ranger. This boasts of a more spacious interior that is able to fit up to 7 passengers in the double cab pickup truck. This one also boasts of armrests, leather seats, a reversing camera and a variety of other top notch safety features as well as parking aides. It would be like music to the ear for some people to mention that this pickup also has a hill start assistance feature. These two may go toe to toe on a lot of things but when exactly will people be able to feast their eyes on these master pieces?
2015 Ford Ranger VS 2015 Volkswagen Amarok Release dates and Prices
There is one big problem. With all the speculation around these trucks, the one thing that has not been speculated is the prices. However, this should not cause you panic as it is not expected to be out of the reach of many. The Ford Ranger is expected to be released later this year but won’t hit the market until early 2015 which is around the same time that the Volkswagen Amarok will be unveiled. Hold on your horses good things come to those who wait.
