The large and practical Amarok is a traditional body-on-frame pickup truck produced by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles since 2010. Volkswagen may have been a relatively late contributor to the increasingly popular pickup market, but since its arrival the Amarok has been a hugely popular option. In fact, its desirable blend of simplicity and premium quality has led it to become one of Europe's best-selling pickups all while earning numerous awards along the way. There is well-established market competition for the Amarok, which includes the Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi L200 and Ford Ranger- but class-leading space and the reliable Volkswagen badging has helped keep the Amarok leader of the pack.
Volkswagen announced an updated version of the Amarok for the 2017 model year, the headline feature of which was a change to the engine line-up. The outgoing 2.0-litre TDI unit was replaced by the all-new 3.0-litre V6 TDI diesel, the most powerful engine in its pickup class. The new engine is available in either 201bhp or 221bhp states of tune and can be mated to either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox. Also on offer is Volkswagen's 4MOTION all-wheel drive, which allows for fantastic off-road performance and is where the Amarok really shines. After all, the Amarok was designed for carrying huge payloads across a range of rough terrains, and it manages to fulfil this admirably.
Load space and practicality are the strongest points in the latest Amarok, which is currently available as a five-seat double cab. This version has one of the widest bodies and load beds in its class, with a huge 1.22 metres between the two rear wheel arches. Add to that the 1 tonne carrying capacity and 3,000kg towing ability and you are left with a fantastic genuine working vehicle. The Amarok really delivers in the cabin too- many manufacturers claim 'car-like' cabin features, but none can quite compare to the Amarok. Vast levels of standard equipment feature throughout the high-quality interior, to the extent that it no longer seems like a pickup at all. The Amarok is also one of the safest pickups in its class, boasting a maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating and a plethora of on-board safety features.
Few can match the Volkswagen Amarok when it comes to off-road ability, genuine working capacity and cabin quality. The Amarok feels premium in every way, and the latest model is better than ever.
