Marks the 30th anniversary of the Syncro.
Volkswagen is one of those automakers that used to pride itself on its quirkiness, producing models that other manufacturers would never have touched – and often enjoying phenomenal success thanks to them. Marking the 30th anniversary of one such model, the 1984 Syncro, VW has released a new concept van/truck called the Tristar. Riding on a short van wheelbase, the Tristar sports a pickup bed that splits in two, with an additional waterproof compartment underneath.
Inside, the flexible cabin offers an espresso machine, a foldout 20-inch tablet, and enough modularity to fit just about any flavor. The Tristar is powered by a 2.0-liter TDI inline-four, producing 200 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
