The best of the best

The Amarok doesn’t just have a lot of character on the outside, there’s plenty of personality under the bonnet too. From its ladder-frame chassis up, the new Amarok is uncompromisingly tough. With its tried and tested 4-cylinder engine and permanent 4MOTION® all-wheel drive, you can go anywhere, without changing pace to shift gear.

With the refinement you expect of Volkswagen, you might forget you are in a rugged workhorse. The sophisticated interior makes driving a pleasure especially with the technically advanced, class leading 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Highlights

4MOTION

4MOTION

Take on any terrain. All Amarok Automatic models feature permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive, where power is generally distributed between the front and rear axles 40:60. When driving on loose surfaces the self-locking Torsen differential automatically distributes power to driven wheels with the most traction.

TDI Engine

TDI Engine

The tough 4-cylinder Amarok has all the grunt you need to conquer the building site or go off the beaten track. Available in automatic, the 2.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine generates 132kW of power. If you need even more grunt, the Amarok V6, with a 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine, delivers a thrilling 190kW of power and a class-leading 200kW on Overboost. With that amount of power, very little stands in its way.

Hill start

Hill start

The Hill Start system prevents the Amarok from rolling backwards when starting on steep inclines. The Hill Descent Control system, within off-road mode, automatically brakes individual wheels to allow a safe and controlled descent down a hill, even without engine braking. Hill start / descent assist and trailer stabilisation are standard equipment across the Amarok range.

Safety

Safety

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.

Assistance systems

Light and Sight systems

Light and Sight systems

Thanks to the front fog lights with integrated static cornering light and intelligent lighting systems, you always have the road in your sights. Even when you’re driving over misty forest roads early in the morning or travelling home from a business meeting in the evening. *Image shows front fog lights with integrated static cornering light

Rear view camera

Rear view camera

The “Rear View” reversing camera simplifies parking by showing a limited view of the area behind the vehicle on the display of the radio or navigation system. Static guidelines aid parking.

Stabilisation systems

Stabilisation systems

Regardless of whether you love a sporty driving style, want to prove yourself while driving off-road or pull a heavy load: the trailer stabilisation function and Electronic Stability Control will help you out. If your trailer starts to snake back and forth, the standard system carefully brakes the towing vehicle and reduces the engine's torque. This smooths out the trailer and maintains driving safety.

ParkPilot

ParkPilot

Park with ease and without obstacles. ParkPilot emits audible warnings when obstacles are detected in front of or behind the vehicle when parking, and also provides a visual display of the vehicle's distance from the obstacles.

Operating equipment

Air conditioning and heating systems

Air conditioning and heating systems

This system offers 2-zone temperature control for the driver and front passenger as well as manual air re-circulation. The air conditioning adds more or less cool air depending on the intensity of the sun’s rays and the outside temperature. The coating of the allergen filter keeps out even very small particles such as allergenic substances. Keeping your Amarok's cab at the perfect temperature in any weather.

Navigation system

Navigation system

Your next major project. A challenging off-road park. A tour through the mountains. No matter what your next adventure is – you’ll always take the most direct route there with the “Discover Media” navigation system as an optional extra. And you’ll also enjoy the perfect soundtrack, too. With perfect sound quality of course.

Radio systems

Radio systems

Whether you’re on a forest path or in the middle of an off-road park: the best journeys are always accompanied by your favourite song. Our radio systems make sure you’re listening to the perfect soundtrack. No matter where you are.

Voice control

Voice control

Rough terrain calls for full concentration – and both hands on the steering wheel. To make sure you can still change the radio station, enter a destination into the navigation system or accept calls, you can equip your Amarok with modern voice control. You are free to operate the telephone, navigation and audio functions without taking your hands off the steering wheel and call up virtually all of the menus and notifications on the radio or navigation system display using voice commands.
