The Volkswagen Amarok

Winner of the NZ 4WD Ute Shoot-out & Stuff.co.nz Pickup Truck of the Year 2017

Welcome to the mighty Volkswagen Amarok, with new class-leading power. This mid-size pickup is described as the thinking man’s ute.

The Amarok doesn’t just have a lot of character on the outside, there’s plenty of personality under the bonnet too. From its ladder-frame chassis up, the new Amarok is uncompromisingly tough. With its tried and tested 4-cylinder engine and permanent 4MOTION® all-wheel drive, you can go anywhere, without changing pace to shift gear.

With the refinement you expect of Volkswagen, you might forget you are in a rugged workhorse. The sophisticated interior makes driving a pleasure especially with the technically advanced, class leading 8-speed automatic gearbox.

The launch of the new Amarok V6 TDI makes it the most powerful ute in its class. Featuring unrivaled full-time road holding traction with permanent 4WD, the Amarok V6 is now available in either 165kW or 190kW power plants, with torque ratings of 550 and a class leading 580Nm.

The Amarok officially began production in late 2009 and is designed to provide strong competition to other utes such as the Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara, and Mitsubishi Triton. Update: The Amarok has proven its worth! Taking Stuff Motoring’s title of Pickup Truck of the Year 2017. Read more.

With more and more tradespeople in Christchurch trying to stand out from the crowd, the Amarok is more than a viable contender for businesses wishing to make an impact, but don’t take our word for it. Read these reviews from local businesses (and don’t miss our guide on why you should buy a Volkswagen ute).

The new Amarok is also available with optional matte paint finish. Check out our owners’ Amaroks in matte grey and blue.

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.

Lands & Survey's Amarok

Local owners review the Amarok.

A team will lax lyrical about why they believe the Amarok is the king of the utes, but we’ll understand if you’re not quite ready to take their word for it, given their role as sales guys! So instead, we asked some of our existing, local, Amarok owners to let us know why they chose the Amarok when there’s so much competition out there.

Read some of their reasons below, or visit this page for a fuller picture.

Brydon Heller, Hellers.

“It was big but drove like a car. Nice and spacious, comfortable and very quiet inside. Other utes were a lot bouncier and noisier than the Amarok. I do have the back empty more than full so was keen to have something that drove well.”

Jeremy Elrick, Lands & Survey.

“I hear a lot of folk say they are ‘city’ 4×4’s, let me tell you that 90% of our work is rural based on farms and irrigation projects. Whilst I was unsure at the start I need not have been, I’ve always owned the other main contender and wouldn’t go back now! Oh, and yeah around town they go alright…!”
