The Volkswagen Advanced Activity Concept (AAC) was displayed at the 2000 Detroit Motor Show.

The Advanced Activity Concept was a
four-wheel drive, sports-styled, pickup powered by a 313 hp (230 kW) V10, twin turbocharged, TDI diesel engine. Peak torque is 750 Newton-meters.

A six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic manual shift mode transmits engine power to a permanent four-wheel drive system. When crossing difficult off-road terrain, an extra-low off-road ratio and two differential locks can be selected electronically. On the Volkswagen Advanced Activity Concept these systems are accompanied by an electronic differential lock (EDS) at all four driven wheels. The electronic stability program (ESP) also helps to counteract difficult driving situations. The AAC concept car has independent suspension with double wishbones at all four wheels.

The raked angle of the A and C pillars are designed to suggest something of a coupe-like body style.

The Advanced Activity Concept's doors are unlocked by a bizarrely named remote control called the "Communicator". Not until this is inserted in a special holder on the top of the dashboard can the V10 engine be started by pressing a separate starter button.
