*Keyless access excludes Life variant

A tough exterior

The new exterior design offers accentuated differences for each of the four equipment lines. From the different radiator grilles to the newly designed styling bars, sports bar and steps, the new Amarok leaves nothing to be desired.

Off-roading reimagined

The Amarok isn’t just another ute – it’s an off-roading champion. This pickup truck has had impressive upgrades across the body, chassis, engine, and transmission variants, from the dimensions to the increased wading depth. The improved departure angle and higher ground clearance further enhances its off-roading capability.

  • Increased wheelbase

    The new Amarok doubles down on double-cab capability at 5,350 mm long – 96 mm longer than its predecessor. A wheelbase of 3,270 mm corresponds to an increase of 173 mm – giving you more space in the crew cab. Yet, as the wheelbase grows, body overhangs decrease. Which means an optimal approach angle and optimal off-road capability across all different driving terrains

  • 4MOTION as standard

    When it comes to driving preference, choose between part time or selectable 4x4. Part time 4x4 includes three modes: 2H, 4H & 4L. Selectable 4x4 available on Amarok PanAmericana and Amarok Aventura includes four modes: 2H, 4A, 4H & 4L.

  • Wading depth

    Heading into uncharted territory? Get immersed in it, with a robust 800mm wading depth.

  • Driving modes for all terrains

    When it comes to the road, the only constant is change. To keep you on track, the new Amarok offers up to six different driving modes. Depending on the model, in addition to the familiar "Normal" and "Eco" driving modes, you can also now choose ‘Slippery’ for paved roads that are covered in ice or snow, and ‘Sand’ for sand or deep snow. Mud/Ruts will help you on muddy or rutted terrain and Cargo/Trailer will of course pull its weight on the heftiest of towing jobs.

    *Snow and Mud modes only available on V6 variants

A true master of all

With 3.5 tonne towing standard across the range, the Amarok is just as suited to hauling heavy loads as it is hitting the off-road tracks. Whether you’re towing the boat or the trailer, the Amarok makes difficult jobs look like child’s play.

Peak Performance

The all‑new Amarok puts the Ute in utility, proving just why this is the ultimate everyday workhorse. The new 10-speed shift-by-wire automatic transmission gives even more power on the road.

New torque strengths also stand out, with an impressive 2.0L 405Nm of torque for the Amarok Life (6-Speed only), a twin-turbo 2.0L 500Nm of torque for the Amarok Style, and a powerful 3.0L 600Nm of torque for the Amarok Pan Americana and Aventura range. Or for something different, a 2.0L 452Nm of torque for the Amarok Aventura petrol variant.

Whatever your choice, each brings a world of power to the playing field.

* 10-speed transmission not available on Amarok Life variant.

What do the experts say

Revel in the testimonials from the experts who have experienced the Amarok ute firsthand. Find out why they regard this as the benchmark for utility vehicles in New Zealand.

Mathew Hansen, Stuff NZ

“One of the biggest triumphs is safety spec. The entry-level Life gets almost everything in Volkswagen’s armada of passive and active tech, ranging from radar cruise and lane-keep assist, to an impressive nine airbags, to traffic sign recognition.”

Kyle Cassidy, Autocar New Zealand

“V6 is a model of smoothness, the transmission with minimal shift shock in the low range, and the big engine delivering more grunt with fewer revs. Refinement is the key attribute of the V6 models”.

Sean Wilmot, New Zealand Company Vehicle

"In the first instance, both parties agreed – though at Volkswagen’s insistence – that Amarok must retain its Volkswagen DNA in quality of fitment and quality of ride.

There were other non-negotiable items: Amarok must have a 3500kg towing ability across the range, it must be able to retain its Euro pallet sized cargo tub, must have rear disc brakes, a V6 had to be available, and the ute had to have SUV-like handing."
