An intelligent ute for a life with challenges
Volkswagen Amarok - The Thinking Man's Ute
Offering superior intelligence and unrivalled capability, the Amarok is a tough ute with a big brain.
Demanding jobs on the farm call for smart power management. The Amarok has it in spades. 4Motion all-wheel drive with high/ low ratio and heavy-duty leaf springs means the Amarok can handle a load of up to one tonne whilst negotiating tough terrain like it’s a Sunday drive around town. And a smaller turning circle means that the Amarok is a great choice whether you live in Ponsonby or Pukerangi.
Massive advances under the hood of the top-of-the-line Twin Turbo TDI engine give you 400Nm of torque from revs as low as 1,500 rpm. Combine that with more power at higher revs and you’ll find towing the boat or trailer a breeze.
And with the 4WD Highline being the first Double Cab 4WD ute in New Zealand to receive a 5 star ANCAP safety rating, you can relax knowing that whether you're lugging quads up a mountain or taking the nippers to school, you're in the safest – and cleverest - Double Cab 4WD ute on the market.
Tough. And smart.
Where other utes get stuck, the Amarok gets going. It unites cross-country mobility, flexibility and efficiency like no other pickup. And here’s how:
- Optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive for traction on almost every type of terrain
- Special Off-road ABS and its aligned electronic stabilisation programme
- Broadest load area in its category, enabling even Euro pallets to be loaded crosswise
- Two powerful 2.0 l TDI® engines 1) which set new standards in terms of economy
- Advanced robust ladder frame chassis, which offers a high level of stability during the rough stuff
Selectable 4MOTION all-wheel drive.
Tough jobs call for smart power management. With selectable 4MOTION all-wheel drive the Amarok intelligently distributes power between the front and rear axle, giving reliable traction on any surface. And all you need to do is push a button. The Amarok also features an electronic stabilisation programme as standard equipment.
Payload of up to one tonne.
Heavy-duty leaf springs are standard equipment for the Amarok, taking the weight of a maximum load of up to 1,147 kg 1)
. The 2.52 m² load area with a through-loading width of 1,222 mm is the widest in its class – standard sized pallets can be loaded crosswise with room to spare.
2.0 litre TDI® engines.
The Amarok gets you, your tools and heavy equipment wherever you need to go quickly and safely. Its powerful 2.0 litre TDI engine with 90kW wastes no time getting you off the mark.
And the high-revving 2.0 litre Twin-Turbo TDI engine is one of the most efficient of our times. Both exhaust turbo chargers give you instant response at low revs and powerful performance at higher revs.
With an output of 120 kW (163 bhp) and 400 Nm torque you’ll leave other utes, and fuel costs, chewing on your dust. In fact the Amarok, has an average fuel consumption of just 7.3 litres per 100 km. Now that’s pretty clever.
