Volkswagen introduced the new Amarok a few months ago, and tuners have already started previewing their custom-builds based on the Ford Ranger pickup truck. The German tuner Delta4x4 is preparing a more powerful version of a medium-sized pickup truck. Official renderings give the first idea of the “Beast” with the appropriate name, which is currently under development.
The redesigned suspension will allow the modified Amarok to rise 150 mm higher than a standard pickup truck to improve off-road capabilities. Delta4x4 also plans to install wheels shod in 305/70 R18 or 35×12.5R20 tires. To accommodate the massive combination of wheels and tires, giant wing extenders will make the new VW all-terrain truck significantly wider.
“The 2023 Amarok will also receive an LED strip on the roof, as well as additional LEDs attached to the front arc. PIAA will supply additional lighting, and Horntools will provide a winch. The updates are completed by a roof rack, Delta4x4 logos on the front and back, as well as red “Beast” stickers on the sides of the bed.”
Additional technical specifications have not yet been disclosed. The visualization shows that the after-sales service project will be based on a powerful six-cylinder version, judging by the “V6” logo on the radiator grille. Connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission, this 3.0-liter diesel, borrowed from the global Ford Ranger 2023, develops a power of 238 hp and 247 hp, depending on the specification.
After the official announcement in early July, the new Amarok went to the assembly line in September at the Ford plant in Pretoria, South Africa. Five complete sets are produced here: Amarok, Life, Style, Panamericana, and Aventura. Unlike the Ranger with its 2023 Everest counterpart, the VW pickup will not become an SUV with a ladder frame.
