  1. Re: MediaRelease: New Volkswagen Amarok global premiere takes place this week

    Apologies.. I'll keep it to myself going forward.
  2. Re: MediaRelease: New Volkswagen Amarok global premiere takes place this week

    Problem.. It is not an Amarok with Ford influence.
    It is 99% a Ranger with VW influence.. Big difference.
    Look, both will be nice vehicles. I just don't want a Ranger camouflaged as an Amarok.

    Re: Amarok built by Ford

    Yes.. No ford has been replaced with Isuzu.
    Just another example that people don't want these badge engineered vehicles.
    The waiting list for Isuzu is long, yet no one buys the BT50.

    Are the CX3 and 5 not pure Mazda products?
    While the BT50 is an Isuzu?

    I'm pretty sure Ford would have spelled it out clearly in the agreement.. You are not allowed to sell below our price and not allowed to reveal your car before us.

    Re: Amarok built by Ford

    The single cab in SA didn't sell, hence it was dropped out of the market. I cannot see why it will be any different this time, especially seeing that it is a Ford.

    Re: Amarok built by Ford

    Agree.. And those examples that you gave of the BT50 is exactly my argument from the beginning. Add to that the example or Merc/Navara.

    It ended up being a flop, and I predict the new "Amarok"...

    Both!
    You already have them.
    Keep them both.
    Put the dark rims with bigger profile tyres and better grip on when you overland. There it will be an advantage I reckon.

    Surely it will depend where the chicken was bought. Chicken from SA is not allowed because of bird flu. And I don't think they have in Bots so chicken bought in Bots should be fine in theory.
