Too powerful

The best of the best, Introducing the Amarok

The Amarok doesn’t just have 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. With the refinement you expect of Volkswagen, you might forget you are in a rugged workhorse.

A force to be reckoned with

A force to be reckoned with

Powerful performance

The Amarok has an impressive inside that matches it's outside, with plenty of character under the hood.

Ladder frame chassis

Tough, full length ladder frame chassis

The chassis is tough enough for whatever you throw at it – or under it. With two long chassis rails, connected by shorter rails, it consists of 7 cross sections. These cross sections offer maximum strength and rigidity optimising off-road and towing performance.

4MOTION and off-road mode

Ready for any adventure

Amarok’s 4x4 system utilises a Torsen differential to distribute optimal power between all four wheels. The optional Selectable 4MOTION system gives you the choice of three modes: rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and four-wheel drive low range. At the touch of a button you can select the best mode for whatever the conditions may be.

The intelligent ‘off-road’ button sets up the vehicle for off-road driving with functions including Hill Descent Control, and recalibrated ABS settings that improve performance on dirt, and reduce the stopping distance on loose surfaces.

TDI Engine

Power is its strong suit

The tough 4-cylinder Amarok has all the grunt you need to conquer the building site or go off the beaten track. Available in manual and auto, the 2.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine generates 132kW of power and 400Nm (manual) and 420Nm (auto) of torque, making quick work of challenging terrains.

If you need even more grunt, the Amarok V6, with a 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine, delivers a thrilling 165kW of power and 180kW on Overboost. If that's still not enough, the Amarok V6 Ultimate 580 and Highline 580 Black generate an incredible 190kW of power, surging to a class-leading 200kW on Overboost. With that amount of power, very little stands in its way.

Load areas & payload

Space where it's needed most

The Amarok can pack a full size ‘Euro’ pallet with its incredible 1222mm tray. Not only is it the widest, it has four lashing eyes conveniently located around the load space. Plus, when you work late, there’s a light above the rear window to illuminate the tray. And with a payload of up to 911kg, transporting almost anything is possible1.

Innovative from the inside, out

The Amarok isn't just tough, it has all you would expect and more from a Volkswagen. 

Media systems

Hardwired for connection

Navigation has never been easier thanks to the optional Discover Media package, with a 6.5” colour display with touchscreen, 2D and 3D (bird's eye) map views, CD player with auxillary input and two SD card slots for navigation and media. Only available on Highline and Ultimate models.

The Composition Media system boasts a crystal clear 6.33” colour touch screen, packed with the latest multimedia functions, including App-Connect2 and Bluetooth®. For added convenience the telephone functions can be voice activated. Available on all models.

Electronic Stability Program (ESP) & off-road ABS

In safe hands

ESP helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing understeer or oversteer. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Programme will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.

Off-road ABS reduces the stopping distance on loose surfaces at the press of a button. When this function is activated the braking interval is increased; the wheels lock up in a controlled manner so that material from the ground (such as gravel or sand) build up in front of each wheel, reducing the stopping distance.

Multi-Collision Brake

Safety as standard

The Multi-Collision Brake system3 applies the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h when airbag sensors detect a collision, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.

Trailer Stabilisation

Steady the load

Trailer Stabilisation3 complements the electronic stabilisation program. If your trailer starts to fluctuate heavily, the system slows it down through controlled braking and reduced engine torque – steadying the trailer and increasing driving safety. Genuine Amarok wiring harness must be fitted.

Built for maximum driving pleasure

The Amarok can handle extreme angles, gradients and slopes, providing a comfortable drive on any terrain.

Interior

Get comfortable being tough

The Amarok’s interior boasts plenty of space to stow your belongings, including storage on the dashboard, large compartments under the front seats on the Sportline and Highline, and four cup holders. The ergoComfort 14-way electric seats, available in luxury Nappa leather appointed upholstery4, ensure a comfortable drive and safe journey.

Gradients

See the world at different angles

From steep slopes to rushing streams, the Amarok's got it covered. It handles 45° inclines, has a maximum slope angle of 29.5° at the front and 18.0° at the rear, and can handle pools with a wading depth of 500mm. The Amarok's broad wheelbase provides enormous stability, even when driving along slopes with a 50° incline*.
