The Amarok range

“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”.

Oversteer.co.nz, Damien O’Carroll, November 2012
2L vs 3L engine.

More time driving, less time waiting

More time driving, less time waiting

With service intervals of up to 20,000kms (or every one year), you’ll spend less time, effort and expenses on servicing your Amarok across it’s life and more time driving it and putting it to work. Fuel economy from as low as 7.3L/100kms (combined) also means less visits to the pump.

4-Motion All Wheel Drive

4-Motion 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

Class leading safety

Class leading safety

In early 2011, ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) awarded its first 5-star double-cab ute safety rating to the Volkswagen Amarok.

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.

Bi-Turbo Engine

Bi-Turbo Engine

The design of the Bi-Turbo engine uses technology from heavy transport vehicles to provide an extremely strong and reliable engine from a smaller overall capacity - giving you the torque you need for heavy loads and towing, while reducing fuel consumption. Maximum torque is delivered at just 1500rpm ensuring the engine is not overworked, even when towing at capacity.
