Volkswagen releases more details of Amarok pick-up

6

Volkswagen has released more pictures and details of its new Amarok pickup, arriving later this year.

A new 3.0-litre V6 TDI engine will be available, which achieves 550 Newton metres of torque and 224hp at his highest power output level.

For the driver and front-seat passenger, the Amarok provides 14-way adjustable ergoComfort seats, which have already won awards for their back-friendliness.

ne of the highlights of the new Amarok’s interior are the new electrically adjustable ergoComfort seats for the driver and front-seat passenger, which provide plenty of head and legroom.  The ergoComfort seats for the driver and front-seat passenger in the Amarok have been awarded the ‘AGR’ seal of approval by the Healthy Back Campaign. 

The multifunction steering wheel also makes it easier for the driver to operate the radio, telephone or multifunction display. The Aventura launch model comes with a colour 3D display between the classic round instruments. 

The ‘Park Pilot’ parking assistance system, assisted by the ‘Rear View’ reversing camera, also makes life easier. Stainless steel pedals (exclusive to the Aventura) and black trim, divided from door to door by a bar in contrasting colour, round of the appearance of the Amarok’s interior. Air-conditioning system, Bluetooth connection and up to four 12-volt power supply sockets are also included.

Prices for the new Amarok in Germany start at €25,720 for the rear-wheel drive Trendline version with double cab and the V6 TDI.

New Amarok sales in the UK will begin before the end of the year. Full pricing and specification details will be released closer to launch.
