Its unibody construction would be based on the Atlas.

That means it'd be closer to a Honda Ridgeline than a Toyota Tacoma.

It uses the Atlas' six-cylinder gas engine for motive force.

The face is closer to the 2019 Jetta than the current Atlas, likely signaling a shift from that design to this new one.

In terms of capabilities, the Tanoak would be on par with the Ridgeline.

That's less capable than most midsize trucks, but it'd be more than enough for a hefty majority of buyers.
