The Thinking Man's Ute.

So what does a smart bloke do with smartest Ute on the market? Check out this video!

Behind the drive.

We love hearing from Volkswagen community members. We caught up with Volkswagen owner Alan at Southern Field Days – check out what he has to say about his experience with the Amarok.

"What, a 2.0-litre engine? That wouldn't pull the scab off me ruck marks. Whatever, Amarok in AWD auto guise is the most refined ute, like an SUV with a tray”."What, a 2.0-litre engine?

A Ute with 20,000km service intervals

A Ute with 20,000km service intervals

When you drive off in your brand new Amarok you won’t see the guys at the service centre until you’ve clocked up 20,000km. Which is quite the distance, especially when most other utes have a service interval of 10,000km - 15,000km. That’s more time working, and less time in the workshop for you. No wonder the Amarok has become the workhorse of choice for thousands of farmers, builders, chippies, and high country station owners, throughout New Zealand.

Amarok 8-speed automatic

Amarok 8-speed automatic

It's unlike any Ute you've ever driven before. It's the only Ute in the market with an eight-speed auto gearbox - to give you plenty of pull at the low end and plenty of fuel capacity at the top. A workhorse that feels like a luxury SUV. 2WD auto from $54,990 and 4MOTION auto from $61,990.

4MOTION all-wheel-drive

4MOTION all-wheel-drive

The Permanent 4MOTION all-wheel-drive with Torsen differential makes the most of the dynamic driving benefits of all-wheel drive and is suitable for driving on paved roads as well as off-road terrain. Power is distributed between the front and rear axle (40:60 front: rear), which ensures excellent driving dynamics whatever the conditions. Should the driving surface change, the system automatically adapts to distribute power to driven wheels with the most traction

Tricks of the tray

With a tray light for loading and unloading at any hour of the day, tray tie-downs to make sure your load stays safe, unparalleled width between wheel arches, exceptional tray height and lockable tailgate, the Amarok is always ready to go to work.

Off-road ABS

Off-road ABS

Off-road ABS; developed for use off the beaten track. As soon as this function has been activated – by pressing a button – the braking interval is increased. The wheels lock up in a controlled manner so that small wedges of material from the ground (such as gravel or sand) build up in front of each wheel. This can substantially reduce the stopping distance of the vehicle.

Behind the Drive

“On the road, the 8-speeder is a wonderfully slick performer that changes ratios smoothly and efficiently, and only serves to make the Volkswagen Amarok even more impressive. Big, handsome and remarkably capable both on and off the road”.
