In News1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineJanuary 20, 2022

The new Amarok from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is set to premiere mid-2022 and then be available to order in the first few markets at the end of the year.

The Amarok will debut with a new design. It will be 10cm longer and more than 4cm wider than the current version.

“The new Amarok impresses through its tough, honest design,” said Albert-Johann Kirzinger, head of design at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. “You can see that in the interior of the pick-up too. The uncluttered, masculine architecture, the elements designed in a machine-like fashion, the clear, taut surfaces and a particularly high-quality cockpit raise the Volkswagen DNA to a new level and emphasise the Amarok’s right to claim premium vehicle status.”

In its latest generation the vehicle will have considerably more driver assist systems, and feature innovations that have not been seen before in this segment.

“In terms of drive system we are continuing to use highly efficient TDI diesel engines for the new Amarok,” said Lars Menge, head of product marketing at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

“And there will be a powerful V6 TDI available in the future too, plus further power units specific in each case to the market,” he said.
