2012 Geneva: Volkswagen Amarok Canyon Concept, a pickup we wish we had in the U.S.

For all of you freestyle kayakers out there, Volkswagen has brought a concept to the Geneva Motor Show that was designed with you in mind.

The Amarok Canyon concept is a pickup coated in Baladi Orange paint, with exterior features that include a 40mm lift kit, flared wheel arches, auxiliary lights, tinted tail lights, and electronically-deployable side steps. In the rear, the bed is equipped to hold two carbon fiber kayaks, and necessary extras including paddles.

Inside the Amarok concept is two-tone leather seats, auxillary gauges, and a three-spoke steering wheel.

Overall, this offbeat pick for Volkswagen isn’t a bad looking one. Although it is highly functional we’re sure, it only reaches a very limited market.
