This is Design

The new Amarok is defined by powerful contours in a completely revised Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles design. Improved dimensions provides a higher slope angle for improved off-road capability, and there is also a more rugged emphasis in the stance than in the predecessor.

The new Amarok comes with numerous remarkable highlights, such as modern "IQ.Light" LED matrix headlights, wheels up to 21" in size, completely new exterior styling packages with newly designed styling bars and side steps.

The radiator grille, which - depending on the merges individually into a horizontal division of the front section or into an X-shaped design in the top trim levels, is another eye catcher.

Speaking of highlights, the loading area between the wheel arches offers enough space for a Euro pallet to be loaded crosswise and lashed in place thanks to the sturdy eylets.

Another new feature is the roof load capacity of 350kg. Never before has it been possible to pitch a tent on a nicer surface.

Design features of the new Amarok:

  • New radiator grille
  • "IQ.Light" LED matrix headlights and LED taillights
  • Wheels 16"/17"/18"/20"/ 21", all-terrain tires up to 18"

The new Amarok PanAmericana is highly uncompromising, just like its all-terrain tires on 18" light-alloy wheels, which are exclusive to the Amarok PanAmericana in all black. Its powerful exterior impresses with high-quality comfort on the inside: the leather seat upholstery, the navigation system with a 30.48 cm (12") touchscreen and the Harman Kardon premium sound system ensure an exclusive driving experience.

This is Off-road

What makes the new Amarok a real thoroughbred off-roader? It offers the latest technology and more ride comfort than its predecessor, such as state-of-the-art airbags and assistance systems. Whether body, chassis, engine or transmission variants: From the modified dimensions to the significantly greater fording depth, everything here is designed for off-road capability.

The new off-road feeling:

  • Longer wheelbase

    The new Amarok is 5,350 mm long - 96 mm longer than its predecessor. A wheelbase of 3,270 mm corresponds to an increase of 173 mm - which means there is more space in the interior cabin. Since the wheelbase grows more than its overall length, the body overhangs are reduced. This adds to an increased slope angle and a better off-road capability.

  • An adaptable transmission

    The new Amarok has the right answer for almost every driving situation. It also has the right transmission for almost every drive preference: from rear-wheel drive to selectable and permanent all-wheel drive. Four different diesel engines with four to six cylinders and 2.0 to 3.0 liters of displacement ensure the right strength development.

  • More driving modes, more driving comfort

    The preconfigured driving modes are new and come in many variations: they support drivers in special off-road situations in several stages. More than 30 assistance systems, over 20 of which are completely new on board the Amarok, provide additional driving comfort on request.

  • Fording depth of 800mm

    Incredible 300 mm more than the predecessor model: thanks to 800 mm fording depth, off-road fans can now immerse themselves even more fully in the world of off-road capability.

Master of versatility – the new Amarok

Reliability and versatility for almost any business? The new Amarok has it in its genes. It's proud to show it: the "AMAROK" lettering is embossed almost across the entire width of the tailgate. With a broad variety of new features, it is more usable every day, making it a versatile and reliable commercial vehicle.
