The Amarok Dual Cab 4x2 is also available with the TDI420 (132kW/420Nm) engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, expanding the range from the single TDI340 (103kW/340Nm), six-speed manual variant offered previously.
All 2015 2WD Amarok Dual Cab utes will now be equipped with cruise control, six-speaker stereo system with 3.5mm and Bluetooth connectivity features, multi-function display and colour-coded front bumper. Cab-chassis pricing starts from $31,490 for the TDI340, with the TDI420 at $36,490.
