What's on this page

Volkswagen Amarok

Volkswagen decided to re-write the rule book of the 4x4 pick-up market in 2010, producing a ladder-frame utility in the style of rivals like the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger, and becoming the first mainstream European brand to tackle the burgeoning market.

Built in Argentina, the Amarok has been a sales success for the German brand, with it offering both single and dual cab versions in 4x2 and 4x4 guises. In 2016, VW launched its most powerful Amarok yet, with a VW Group 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine (also used in the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, and VW Touareg) supplementing the stock 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel.

The Amarok TDI420 (4x2) starts off at $38,490, while the range-topping, Amarok TDI580 ULTIMATE 4MOTION is priced at $72,790.
