An Intelligent Ute for a Life with Challenges
Demanding jobs around the farm call for a vehicle with smart power management. Volkswagen designed the Amarok to provide this in spades – with 4MOTION all-wheel drive (now as standard across the range) with high/low ratio and heavy-duty leaf springs, the Amarok is tough enough to handle a load of up to one tonne whilst being clever enough to negotiate tough terrain like you’re on a Sunday drive around town.
“Few people realise that more 4WD utes on the market are only so when you actively engage the 4WD system. This is fine off-road, however full-time 4WD provides some significant handling, safety and towing advantages on the road.”
Particular attention was made to ensuring the Amarok retained a smaller turning circle. This not only helps when it comes to navigating tricky terrain off-road, but also improves manoeuverability and safety when driving around Christchurch’s tighter residential streets.
The Amarok can be equipped with a rubberised floor and wipe-clean seats to help keep your truck looking good even on the messiest construction site or the muddiest off-road terrain.
In late-2016 the new model Amarok was released, building on the already impressive model, becoming the only ute in New Zealand with a V6 TDI engine. It has redefined all aspects of a premium lifestyle vehicle.
The Amarok combines everything that you’d expect from an exclusive, premium-class all-rounder: masculine design and robust construction along with plenty of power.
