You won’t know what ‘maximum’ means until you drive the All-New Amarok. Tough enough for work, rugged enough for off-road, comfortable enough for family get-aways and versatile enough for everyday driving, the All-New Amarok has it all. A supremely confident and powerful new design is merely a preview of the changes it has undergone. Everything – from performance, to technology, driver assistance, safety and comfort – has been taken to the max. And that’s before we mention the All-New Amarok’s premium interior, tech and style. With its yearning for adventure, and its ability to take on any challenge, there’s no limit to what the All-New Amarok can do.
The All-New Amarok proves that a practical and fun-packed ute can also be a down-and-dirty workhorse. With a range of diesel and petrol engines available, including a barnstorming V6 TDI engine, the Amarok is just as suited to hauling heavy building supplies as it is hitting off-road trails. And with up to a 3.5-tonne braked towing capacity, you won't have to leave anything behind. Better yet, you can enjoy all fun and performance of the All-New Amarok while relishing premium levels of interior comfort.
Driving a rugged ute doesn’t mean you need to compromise on clever safety and driver assistance technology. The All-New Amarok incorporates up to 30 driver assistance systems, 20 of which are new to the Amarok, setting an unrivalled standard for what’s possible in a ute. Clever technology, such as Adaptive Cruise Control2, Rear Traffic Alert2 and Park Assist2, is there to assist the driver with every drive. And you can rely on a full complement of airbags – including a centre airbag, knee airbag and standard curtain airbag – for comprehensive protection in the event of a collision.
There’s an astonishing array of advanced technology in the All-New Amarok. Innovation is taken to the next level with a vertical touchscreen infotainment up to 12 inches in size that ‘levitates’ above the central console. Link your smartphone to the premium Harmon Kardon sound system (in higher trim variants) via App-Connect3 to bring your favourite music to life. And reveal essential driving information like never before with the All-New Amarok’s digital cockpit with 8-inch digital instrument cluster, or 12-inch cluster in higher trims. The upgraded tech doesn’t end there. LED headlights and LED taillights are standard across the range, as are powerful IQ.Light LED Matrix headlights in higher trim variants.
The All-New Amarok has the right answer for every driving situation. Take your pick of a petrol engine or one of three diesel engine specifications offering 2.0 to 3.0 litres of displacement. And choose the right transmission to suit your driving needs, from rear-wheel drive to selectable and permanent all-wheel drive. There’s no off-road situation that the All-New Amarok can’t beat. Supporting drivers in special off-road situations are an array of preconfigured driving modes that offer multiple levels of assistance. More driving modes, more driving comfort, more fun.
It’s never been easier to haul a heavy load now that the All-New Amarok has been given a capability boost. With its extra width, the All-New Amarok can accommodate a Euro pallet crosswise between its wheel housings. A payload limit up to 1.2 tonnes4 depending on variant means there’s very little the All-New Amarok can’t carry. Of course, every load can also be safely secured thanks to sturdy tray eyelets and a load compartment roll-cover system. And with its improved roof load capacity of 350kg, the All-New Amarok is sturdy enough that you can fit a tent or canopy with absolute confidence.
The All-New Amarok has been reimagined from the ground up, but still exudes unmistakable Volkswagen DNA. Ten centimetres longer than its predecessor, wider and with an expanded wheelbase, the All-New Amarok cabin offers more legroom – and extra comfort – to passengers in the second row of seats. Premium cabin inclusions are everywhere you look, from the All-New Amarok’s leather seats (in higher trim variants) through to its quality instrument panel and door trim surfaces. And inclusions such as multi-function steering wheel, Keyless Access and electronic parking brake make every drive a breeze. With this amount of premium comfort on offer, you won’t want your journey to end.
The All-New Amarok goes for maximum impact with its unambiguously bold and expressive design. An upright bonnet exhibits clear Volkswagen DNA and with a defining X-shaped design on the ‘PanAmericana’ (off-road) and the ‘Aventura’ (on-road) variants. It’s just as striking from the rear with its wide tailgate framed by standard LED rear lights and the word ‘Amarok’ embossed across almost the entire tailgate width. Newly designed styling bars and side steps offered on different variants are other remarkable highlights, as are striking 21-inch wheels on the Aventura and 18-inch light alloy wheels with all-terrain tyres on the PanAmericana variant. Strong, confident and charismatic, the All-New Amarok is a force to be reckoned with.
