The four-door short bed pickup truck stretches 214 inches long, nearly 80 inches wide, has almost 10-inches of clearance, and rides on 20-inch wheels. It also features an integrated winch and hook in its front bumper and a slide-out rail in the rear roof for ease of hauling long items. The dual cab configuration creates a spacious interior with room for five passengers. Power would come from a 3.6-liter V6 thatís already present in the Atlas SUV lineup, delivering 276 hp and 350 Nm of torque. The all-wheel drive Atlas Tanoak is still in concept stage, and was designed to gauge public reaction before possible production, yes we say!
