No matter the journey (driving to work or hitting the plains of the Serengeti) the new Amarok 3.0 Tdi V6 will take you there and transform it into an adventure.
A pick-up like no other. The New Volkswagen Amarok 3.0 Tdi V6 delivers much-needed excitement that this category has lacked for years. The interior combined with its luxury trimmings makes it very easy to get comfortable in.
Braving the outdoors
The Amarok is a mean machine on and off the road. Its buff posture gets the job done with ease. It’s a rugged yet refined, bulky look that works. The wheel arch extensions create a lot more presence and that’s just the cover-up for the impressive 20-inch alloy wheels on the Extreme model. The ground clearance sits at 239mm, making it a formidable contender off-road.
The leather seats and signature Volkswagen trimmings can be found all round. The front seats are height adjustable and the sides of the seats are padded for maximum comfort. Top of the range infotainment systems comes standard in the Comfortline and Highline derivatives. It’s neatly tucked into the 6.33-inch ‘Composition Media’ radio system with a touchscreen. The infotainment setup sports an SD card slot, USB port and AUX IN interface. The Highline Plus and Extreme models also come with a 6.33-inch touchscreen, this comes in the form of the ‘Discover Media’ satellite navigation system as a standard.
The new Amarok 3.0 Tdi V6 is a formidable force to be reckoned with. With an impressive 165Kw packed in a powerful 3.0 turbo charged diesel engine good things will happen. 0 – 100km/p in 8 seconds is enough to grab your attention and keep it. Loads of tar and dirt will need exploring with an 80l tank and an average consumption of 9 litres per 100 kilometres. This powerhouse is coupled with technology like an Automatic Post-Collision Braking system, Hill Descent Assist, and off-road ABS to highlight a few key attributes.
The Amarok 3.0 Tdi V6 165kW 4MOTION Auto Highline comes in at R665 700.00 with the top of the range Extreme model coming in at R748 600.00. True to the Volkswagen brand you will be taken care of once you leave the showroom floor. A 3 year/100 000km manufacturing warranty coupled with a 5 year/90 000km Automotion Service Plan all wrapped up with a 6-year anti-corrosion warranty.
