“Like previous iterations, the latest Amarok will combine passenger car-like on-road manners with full off-road capability. A more athletic front and a modified instrument panel emphasise the powerful Amarok look and give the vehicle a more premium feel. With a length of 5.25 metres and a width of 2.23 metres (mirrors included), the Amarok fulfils all that is expected of a classic pick-up in both style and concept,” Volkswagen said.
Beyond this details are still thin on the ground. Amarok is expected to retain its current engine and transmission line-up and body configurations. It’s unlikely to get extra ground clearance over the current model in 4MOTION guise which is 192mm. The inside is likely to feature the latest VW infotainment and communication system and is likely to be where the most significant changes have taken place. Stay tuned.
The German manufacturer’s “premium” bakkie will be given a subtle redesign to key areas usck as the front end of the vehicle. From the sketches, it seems as if the Amarok will receive a new sportier front bumper, wider fenders and LED lights for the front and the rear.
The Amarok is also set to see an update to its interior with better quality materials and more tech crammed in.
