Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has introduced the Transporter Rockton 4MOTION.

The all-wheel drive, rough terrain variant of the T5 Transporter includes a fourth-generation Haldex four-wheel drive system with a rear axle differential lock and a 30 mm increase in ride height on the standard model. Heavy-duty springs and dampers make for a gross vehicle weight rating of 3.2 metric tons to carry large loads across hard terrain.

Marking the Transporter Rockton 4MOTION as distinct are the rear side window panels with the Rockton logo and a special trim package.

Powering the all-wheel drive Rockton is a 2.0 liter TDI engine with an output choice of either 140 PS (138 bhp / 103 kW) and 180 PS (178 bhp / 132 kW). Standard is a six-speed manual gearbox but special gearing can be had with the Expedition package option.

The factory-fitted Expedition package includes 16-inch AT tires, a special gearbox for improved off-road traction and a rugged floor-rail system for securing additional seats.

Prices for the Transporter Rockton 4MOTION begin at €34,545 (not including VAT). Fitted with the Expedition package prices start at €42,490 (excluding VAT).
