Volkswagen is unveiling the new Amarok pick-up, set to make its debut next year.

Developed by teams in Australia and Europe, the premium pick-up will be produced in South Africa.

The new, third-generation Amarok from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will feature a completely new appearance inside and out, with more extensive equipment on board.

Now in its third generation, the new vehicle has significantly more driver assist systems and promises to impress customers in terms of connectivity. Volkswagen says the 2022 Amarok will feature innovations that have not been seen before in this segment, while still being exceptionally capable on rough terrain.

The Amarok has been in series production since 2010. The premium pick-up used to be made in Hannover and will continue to be built in Pacheco in Argentina. The newest version will also be built going forward in the South African city of Silverton. Over the last decade, more than 800,000 vehicles have been sold globally.
