Volkswagen's latest version of the off-road dual cabin pick up truck is off the scale
Vehicles will launch its next generation Amarok pick-up in Ireland later this year.
Designed and conceived in Germany and Australia and made in South Africa – it will be capable of even more, both on and off-road.
The new Amarok will once again take its place at the top of the pick-up B segment with excellent specification, a greatly expanded array of driver assist features and a much larger range of drive systems than its predecessor.
A first few disguised models of the new Amarok are already out and about in Europe. Behind the camouflage, the all-rounder’s innovative, premium design has been redefined. A powerful, charismatic exterior meets with a high-quality interior.
Despite the disguise, it is already possible to identify how the dimensions have changed: at 5,350 mm the new model is at least 100 mm longer than its predecessor.
A wheelbase of 3,270 mm equates to an increase of 175 mm – as a result there is more space in the double cab. The payload is also increasing to up to 1.2 tonnes and a maximum towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes is now possible across more engine/ gearbox variants.
As the wheelbase of the new Amarok is growing more than its total length, the bodywork overhangs are getting smaller. That has a positive impact on the approach angle and its offroad capabilities.
Dependent on engine/gearbox variant and market, the engines available will be one petrol and up to four different diesels with four to six cylinders and cubic capacity of 2.0 to 3.0 litres.
A great array of preconfigured driving modes with multiple levels assists the driver, including in non-everyday situations. Drivers of the new Amarok will in future be able to take on practically every challenge they encounter on their adventures big or small in their everyday pick-up routine. The new Amarok will launch in Ireland at the end of 2022.
