New Volkswagen Amarok

New Volkswagen Amarok


Available in Aberdeen

The Volkswagen Amarok was introduced to the public in 2010 but was being worked on from as early as 2005, with a concept teased in 2008. The first generation model sold a staggering 830,000 units between 2010 and 2022 leaving customers with high standard when a second generation Amarok was announced.

The all new Volkswagen Amarok is rugged and dependable, with all the ability you would expect of a pickup truck, and is the result of a meeting of minds between Volkswagen and Ford, and will be built alongside the new Ranger in a new collaboration.

The new generation of commercial vehicle has already proven its capability by winning its first awards, beating out other pickup trucks, to win both Pick Up of the Year at the What Van? 2024 Awards and the International Pick Up Award at Solutrans 2023, an accolade that the first generation model won on two different occasions. For our full thoughts on the model, see our Volkswagen Amarok review.

Volkswagen Amarok Exterior

Whilst the 2023 Volkswagen Amarok is being built in collaboration with the Ford Ranger, the only shared exterior parts between the two models are the roof panel, door handles, and mirror casings. This means that the Amarok is still firmly a Volkswagen model and not a carbon copy of another double cab pick up with a different name.

The exterior itself is sleek and modern whilst still providing the much-needed sturdiness of an off road vehicle. Wading depth is increased by 300mm compared to the previous model for a total of 800mm, meaning that you'll never be restricted about where you can drive. Elsewhere an increased length and wheelbase reduces the body overhangs and adds an increased slope angle which makes the off road capability even better.

The Amarok range features front and rear parking sensors as part of the park assist features, and a rear view camera for ultimate visibility of the area surrounding your new Amarok. For your cargo there are tie downs in the load bed and tow bar preparation to allow you to carry even more.

Volkswagen Amarok Interior

Inside, the VW Amarok has been revitalised and modernised to include finishes such as a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and gear selector, fabric seats trims, and 8-way adjustment in the front seats.

There's also four different trim levels to choose from: Amarok Life, Amarok Style, Amarok PanAmericana, and Amarok Aventura, and each offers an extensive array of equipment and features designed to give you the most comfortable journey every time.

This includes an 8 inch digital cockpit and a 10 inch infotainment system which work in tandem to display important vehicle information and allow you to utilise the key services in the Amarok. Upgrading your trim level adds to the basic level of comfort to give you extras such as a heated windscreen, leather seats, and a heated steering wheel.

Volkswagen Amarok Performance

Choose from three different diesel engines, all with 4MOTION four wheel drive, and either four or six cylinders. These either use a six speed manual gearbox or ten speed automatic transmission, and all models have common rail injection and power outputs between 170PS and 240PS. You'll find that this is the shared Ford engine in the Ranger, highlighting the peak performance that it is able to deliver.

This is matched with six different driving modes which adjusts the steering power and behaviour, stability control, slip control, drive train response, gearbox control system, and selectable all wheel drive settings to coordinate and optimise them for the conditions.

The new Amarok was given a five star safety rating by Euro NCAP thanks to its impressive safety kit and series of driver assistance features. This includes adaptive cruise control, electronic stability control, automatic post-collision braking system, autonomous emergency braking front assist with pedestrian and cyclist monitoring, lane assist, and dynamic road sign display which means that whether you're tackling some serious off-roading or the average British B road you'll always be driving safely.
