Wish List: VW Transporter Rockton 4Motion

A rugged all wheel drive, diesel-powered, manual transmission-equipped new VW van?
Yes please. It's Volkswagen's Transporter Rockton 4Motion van. Equip mine with a "Weekender" package consisting of a fold-down bed, fold-out table, curtains and top it with the most important piece - a pop top to sleep two more.
And of course, bring it to the USA and offer it for less than $39,900. Which will never happen.

It's be a perfect rig for exploring some of the 4WD roads and trails that lay in east San Diego County.

Via Autoblog. Thanks to Mark P. for the tip!

Volkswagen is selling the Rockton in Europe with prices starting at EUR34,545 (around AU$46,680). No word yet as to whether it will go on sale here in Australia.

The Volkswagen Rockton comes in two engine guises, both turbo diesel. One providing 104kW of power or an optional engine outputting 134kW, both backed up by a manual transmission.

Protecting the occupants from any tents you throw into the rear compartment is a solid steel mesh cage separating the cabin. It also provides plenty of space for luggage... or military accessories. klik here

Inside the car has been given just as much 'great outdoors' attention. In the back there's two seats with their own centre console as well as a fold-out table that pops up from the floor, perfect for planning your next espionage, or top fishing destination.

The Rockton also gets reinforced 16 inch steel wheels with all-terrain tyres fitted for that extra ruggedness.

If the Rockton ride height doesn't quite hurdle any rocks or logs you throw at it it's also got plenty of bash-plate protection underneath, protecting the petrol tank and vital engine and gearbox components; so you can scrape over anything else.

First up, the 4MOTION provides constant all-wheel drive whilst the body is raised by 30mm, so it can certainly climb across rough terrain.

Surely, this is the ultimate SWAT car. Volkswagen has just released the new Volkswagen Transporter Rockton 4MOTION and it looks as though it was born in the bush. crowdfunding platform
