One of the most striking things about Argentina, the country where VW makes the new Amarok, is the number of old trucks on the road.

Apart from a wealth of beautiful old Mercedes lorries, there seems to be a particular fondness for large, delapidated Ford and Chevy pick-ups.

VW Amarok first drive review

You'd think this would be an easy market to tap, but in one not so obvious way VW has really got its work cut out - and that's load capacity.

This old truck pictured above had four people sat on the front seat and, unusually, four head rests.

That means that one of the much rarer double cabs is potentially an eight-seater.

It's hard to see how you'd manage that in an Amarok.
