The brand warns that the pickup turned out to be completely new. Despite the depth of the changes made, Volkswagen did not want to break existing ties with the previous model, so it is quickly recognizable.
In the front part, there is a large radiator grille, which is directly connected to very narrow horizontally positioned LED headlights. Horizontal crossbars give the image of individuality.
“Depending on the configured version, the new Amarok is equipped with IQ headlights as standard. Light. The front bumper is the key to conveying a magnificent presence. Under the Volkswagen icon, you can see the name of the model. Alloy wheels from 18 to 21 inches are available to choose from.”
The name Amarok can be read on the rear door, through which access to the cargo compartment opens. The brand warns that a rigid roof will be available in the model line for better cargo protection.
The “nerve center” of the cabin is a huge touchscreen with a diagonal of up to 12 inches. A key component for controlling the new infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The touch screen is combined with a 12-inch 100% digital dashboard. The basic trim levels will be equipped with digital devices with an 8-inch screen and a 10-inch touch screen, respectively.
The most outstanding technologies are adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assistant, emergency braking, and road sign recognition.
Volkswagen pays special attention to the fact that the changes that have occurred in the dimensions have played a decisive role in creating a more spacious interior. Up to five adult passengers can be inside.
As for the mechanical part, diesel prevails in the new Amarok line. The Access diesel engine with a capacity of 150 hp in combination with 5 automatic transmissions and a rear-wheel-drive system is designed for African markets.
