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.
