Turn heads on the street or turn it loose in the bush with the best ute around. The powerful V6 engine and the legendary stability of the ladder frame chassis make for a ute that’s more than capable of tackling even the toughest terrain. Add to that 4MOTION 4X4 with optional rear differential lock, and it’s no wonder the Amarok has been awarded Best Ute of 2018 by the AA Driven Vehicle of the Year awards.
Take on the toughest New Zealand terrain in your Amarok V6 with Permanent 4x4 with a Torsen® middle differential providing balanced 40:60 distribution.
There’s a lot going down with the Amarok V6. Hill Descent Assist helps you handle downhill slopes in a safe, controlled way by governing engine speed and applying the brakes, if needed.
The Off-road ABS reduces the stopping distance on loose surfaces at the press of a button. When this function is activated the braking interval is increased; the wheels lock up in a controlled manner so that material from the ground, such as gravel or sand, build up in front of each wheel, reducing the stopping distance.
Get your fill of fresh mountain air in the ute that’s built for a climb. The Amarok V6 handles 100% grade with a full payload and its broad track delivers outstanding stability when driving along slopes with inclines up to 50 degrees.

Loaded with driver aids the Amarok will help make you a better and safer driver on-road and off-road. All Amaroks have standard Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) to avoid skidding plus Hill Hold Assist (HHA) to prevent slides on hill starts, and Hill Descent Control (HDC) to ease Amarok down steep descents, even without engine braking. Multi-collision braking is also standard across the range. This feature is an innovative braking system that helps prevent subsequent collisions or at least minimises their impact.
The Amarok V6 has the power and torque to cater for anything Kiwi roads and driving situations might demand. Whether you need the most torquiest engine to tow your toys, or the overboost power feature to make those tricky overtaking manoeuvres (0-100kph as rapidly as 7.3 seconds), it will have you covered.
The Amarok V6 Overboost feature provides a short burst of power that ramps the engine’s output up to an additional 15kW on the 550Nm and 10kW on the 580Nm while extending maximum torque delivery. With up to ten seconds of distinctly more grunt.
The most powerful ute in its class also boasts some class-leading stopping power. Not only does the Amarok V6 have the largest brakes in its class, it features front and rear ventilated disc brakes, which means superior braking performance and reduced chance of brake fade.
All roads aren’t made the same and neither are all gearboxes. The Amarok V6 features a unique 8 speed automatic gearbox and is matched to the Permanent 4x4 Torsen® to deliver high levels of grip no matter what path you choose.
A ute can never have too much stainless steel and this Amarok delivers the on the look. We’ve stepped up the sidebar on the Amarok V6, with a stainless and LED lighting finish.
When you start with the legendary rugged style of Amarok and then add details like Bi-Xenon headlights, you end up with a ute that’s going to turn a lot of heads. Bi-Xenon lights with integrated LED daytime running lights provide a clearer view in poor weather conditions.
The Amarok V6 comes with stylish alloy wheels - like the 20-inch Talca alloys plus flared wheel arches on the Aventura. Throughout the Amarok range, the alloys available include:

And with a massive 3.5 tonne towing capacity and a payload of up to 1010kg, depending on Amarok V6 model, virtually everything is possible.
The Amarok V6 looks every bit as good inside as it does out. Spacious, sophisticated and comfortable, it features a completely redesigned dash panel with sharp trim, an A4 format storage compartment and a cutting-edge infotainment system.
There’s comfortable and then there’s award-winning comfort. The Amarok V6 has been recognised with the AGR seal of quality for outstanding ergonomics. It’s the one award your back will appreciate.
