The all new VW Amarok
Prices for the new model start at £32,493 – for that money you’ll be getting the car’s new 3.0-litre V6 TDI diesel with 201bhp, an eight-speed DSG gearbox and a 4MOTION four-wheel-drive system.
Cheaper models will be available further down the line though with Volkswagen set to introduce a 161bhp version with a manual gearbox in 2017. Alongside this will be manual versions of the 201bhp engine, rear-wheel-drive and selectable four-wheel-drive drivetrains and an entry level trim specification called Startline.
The new model’s 201bhp engine means the Amarok manages 0-62mph in 9.1 seconds and a top speed of 114mph, and despite switching to six-cylinder from four, the engines now found under the bonnet are all Euro 6 compliant.
Volkswagen claims the updated Amarok manages 36.2mpg on a combined run, with CO2 emissions of 203g/km for the 201bhp model.
A key benefit of this engine is also an improved overall towing capacity. Fitted with four-wheel drive, top spec models will be capable of pulling 3.5-tonnes, up from 3.2-tonnes of the existing version, matching the Navara and beating the L200.
VW is now also offering ‘Servotronic’ variable-ratio steering on the Amarok that supposedly makes it more precise, while larger brakes ensure a reduced stopping distance.
