The name is probably global.; Sounds better in other tongues. Having more choices is a good thing, even if you don't like this truck if ever offered here. Even if it was, I still plan on buying a new Ford Ranger extended cab 4X4 with a 6' bed.

Glad to see Ford putting a 6' bed on the new Ranger. You'll have a similar cargo foot print as the so called "full size" trucks that have only a 6' bed.

If memory serves, the names for cars come from different winds, Passat , Jetta etc. Although the Toureg is the name of a tribe. Some exceptions of course are T-Roc et al.

At least they have names and not the stupid XYZ123 that so many use.

...the name AMAROK is a Inuit word for a "Mythical Wolf"

"An amarok, or amaroq, is a gigantic wolf in Inuit mythology, said to stalk and devour any person foolish enough to hunt alone at night. Unlike wolves who hunt in packs, amaroks hunt alone." - from wiki

Wow. That takes the "name it after a predator" game and turns it up to 11.

Amarok is a mythical targeting serial killer of human beings. Kinda dark.
