AutoLatina was the name of a joint venture between Volkswagen Group subsidiary Volkswagen do Brasil and Ford Motor Company subsidiary Ford do Brasil in Brazil and Argentina.

Four divisions - Ford of Argentina, Ford do Brasil (Ford of Brasil), Volkswagen Argentina, and Volkswagen do Brasil - formed AutoLatina in 1987.

Volkswagen had 51% of the company and Ford 49%; Volkswagen managed the Car Division, and Ford the Truck Division.

The AutoLatina venture was dissolved in 1995, with the respective companies resuming their activities separately.

Car DivisionEdit

This resulted in the two companies sharing badge engineered models. These included:

Truck DivisionEdit

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Ford Trucks were built alongside each other in Ipiranga complex, both shared parts and platforms.

The Truck Division also exported to United States rebadged trucks to the PACCAR Group, which were sold under the Kenworth and Peterbilt labels.
