Striking new VW Amarok pick-up design revealed

The new Amarok will be launched on the global market in 2022 with Volkswagen saying that it will have a whole host of new features.

It adds that these will include numerous driver assistance systems that are new in this segment and will make daily driving much more comfortable for future Amarok customers.

What’s more it says, the completely new development with numerous convenience functions will give the new ‘wolf’ even better off- road characteristics than previous generations thanks to greater ground clearance.

The new pick-up from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles (VCV) in Hannover once again boasts a V6 TDI. VCV says that his will not just delight existing Amarok fans, but it will win new target groups for the premium pick-up.

Volkswagen boasts that the whole exterior of the new, sporty Amarok is now even more defined and promises plenty of towing power and torque. Adding that the premium character of the interior has also been further enhanced.

It also claims that the comfort, operating concept, connectivity and ambience in the completely new interior ensure that the new Amarok raises the benchmark for pick-ups in the global one-ton B-segment to a whole new level.

The exterior of the new Amarok has grown in length by ten centimetres to 5.35 metres and its body will also be wider than the current version. VCV says that this is manifested, for example, in more legroom in the second row.

Volkswagen’s Amarok has been in series production since 2010. Its name is derived from the language of North American Inuit and means ‘wolf’. The second generation that comes with a V6 diesel as standard has been on sale since 2016. More than 815,000 vehicles were sold in twelve years.

Developed by teams in Australia and Europe, the latest version of premium pick-up will be produced in Silverton in South Africa in future.
