2017 Volkswagen Amarok Concept

The 2017 Volkswagen Amarok has been redesigned with only one intention, to take the reins at the top of the segment. Volkswagen has revamped the model in all departments including a new and more powerful V-6 engine, a first for any model in this segment.

For your peace of mind, every new Amarok comes with 3 years’ unlimited-mileage Volkswagen Roadside Assistance. Cover is 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and available across the UK and most of Europe. That covers both fault and non-fault issues like flat tyres, battery problems or even filling up with the wrong fuel.

It’s hard to believe, but the Volkswagen Amarok has been available in Australia since 2010 (an automatic transmission joined the range in 2012) and now there’s an upgraded 2017 Volkswagen Amarok V6 heading to Australia in the last quarter of 2016. CarAdvice headed to Germany to test the new 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 oiler on- and off-road ahead of its local launch.

2017 Volkswagen Amarok Interior

2017 Volkswagen Amarok Specs

Below we have summarized some of the reviews about the features of the car exterior and interior 2017 Volkswagen Amarok. The car is expected to be a comfortable car for the ride by the community.

In Comfortline trim, standard features include fabric seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, 6 airbags, electric windows, central locking, height-adjustable seats, rear window heating, body-coloured door handles and side mirror housings, fog lights, manual air conditioning, leather steering wheel and cruise control. A 6.33-inch “Composition Media” touchscreen radio system with App Connect is also standard.

The cabin also features an HD infotainment system which features voice recognition, Bluetooth connectivity and up to four 12V power outlet for charging various gadgets.  There is also a 3D instrument cluster display, paddles shifter mounted on the steering wheel and mated to the 8-speed automatic transmission and stainless steel pedals.

The interior is incredibly refined right up to 200km/h, too. There’s no clatter from the engine bay at startup, no nasty diesel noises low down in the rev range, and a solid strum as the V6 works up to redline but once you’re up to speed, you can engage in a normal conversation with second row passengers without raising your voice. All in all, it’s a very non-diesel experience aside from the thumping torque just off idle. We only noticed a hint of wind noise on the variant we drove with a canopy fitted. Otherwise, the whole experience at speed is impressively quiet. Around town, you could easily convince passengers that they were in a luxury SUV, the interior is that well insulated.

However tough your work may be, nothing will shake you in the Amarok. The cabin of the Amarok has been designed with you in mind. With adjustable front seats, uncomplicated but clever dashboard, multifunction leather steering with multifunction display and practical stowage pockets to keep your Amarok tidy, it’s got everything you need.

The steering wheel also features a number of button controls. The cabin also offered with an optional Light and Sight package which adds an attractive illumination to the cabin as well as HID headlights to improve visibility in dimly lit terrains.

Optional features include leather seats, front and rear park distance control with reverse-view camera, automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers (Light and Sight Package), bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and 17- or 19-inch alloy wheel options.

The Highline Plus trim level builds on the Highline spec by adding “Vienna” leather trim, bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, Light and Sight Package and a 6.33-inch Discover Media navigation system. Nineteen-inch alloy wheels are optional.

We tested the V6 Amarok on-road with both 19- and 20-inch wheels, but the vehicles we tested on the off-road circuit were fitted with 17-inch wheels and aggressive off-road tyres. Australian buyers wanting to head off-road, then, will be pleased to note they can retro-fit smaller wheels with chunkier sidewall tyres (and proper off-road tread blocks) despite the standard four-wheel disc brake system. Volkswagen Australia is keen to offer buyers the option of different wheel and tyre packages when the V6 Amarok lands in Australia later this year.

The range-topping Extreme (replaces the previous Ultimate) trim comes with 20-inch alloys and arch extensions, a “Discover Media” touchscreen satellite navigation system, bi-xenon headlights with daytime running lights and chrome sill bars with LED lighting. Front and rear park distance control with a rearview camera is standard. The “ergoComfort” front seats are covered in Nappa leather and are 14-way adjustable. Furthermore, Extreme is available in exclusive Ravenna Blue metallic paint finish. Optional features include a sports bar in body colour and 19-inch wheels.

However, yet again the model won’t be offered in North America. The ongoing Volkswagen diesel scandal makes the chances of the model ever coming to North America nonexistent.  The automaker has consistently refined the pickup which is offered as a double-cab to its status that can now rival any model in this segment.

The exterior has received a mild upgrade to align it with the automaker’s current design language. The front features a new bumper as well as revised air vents. The vehicle also features a new grille which is flanked by bi-xenon headlights and LED DRLs.

Actually, the front end has been redesigned to look like the latest Volkswagen SUVs.  The Amarok front fascia mimics that of the Tiguan SUV. At the rear, the vehicle features LED taillights. Other features include LED-lit side sills and a new sports bar. The model rides on a new set of 20-inch wheels.

2017 Volkswagen Amarok Engine

2017 Volkswagen Amarok Engine

Thank you for reading the article on the Best Auto Release, We hope article about the 2017 Volkswagen Amarok can be useful as your knowledge in seeing the latest automotive world today.

It is such a pity that the Amarok won’t be offered in the states. Volkswagen has equipped the Amarok with a more powerful engine. The truck features a new 3.0 L, V-6 TDI diesel engine. The engine is rated at 221 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. This presents a whopping 43 hp and 95 lb-ft increase from the outgoing 2.0 TDI.

The only real criticism the Volkswagen Amarok copped when it first landed in Australia back in 2010 was engine-related. Tradies, punters, Volkswagen fans desperate for an alternative to the current crop, existing dual-cab ute owners and off-road explorers all wondered whether a 2.0-litre, twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine would be too highly strung and too small in capacity to deal with the kind of abuse dual-cab ute owners in Australia love dishing out. The addition of an excellent eight-speed automatic, though, proved that a clever transmission can extract the best out of even a small capacity engine.

The range starts with the familiar entry-level 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine (103 kW and 340 Nm of torque), mated with a 6-speed manual transmission. The Amarok 2.0 TDI derivative is now available in Comfortline trim, replacing the previous Trendline specification. Buyers have the choice between a 4×2 or 4Motion all-wheel drive derivative.

The second engine is the 2.0-litre bi-turbodiesel (132 kW and 400 Nm) coupled with either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission (trim dependent) and available in Highline, Highline Plus or Extreme specifications. Two- or all-wheel drive (4Motion) derivatives are available.

Now though, Volkswagen trumps the competition in powertrain terms, at least with a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine that outsizes Mazda and Ford, which both use five-cylinder engines. Contrary to what we initially thought, the engine switch isn’t related to the perceived threat that comes in the form of the still in test-mule stage Mercedes-Benz dual cab. Rather, it’s the fact the existing 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that powers the Amarok doesn’t meet Euro VI emissions standards.

The new Amarok V6 has transformed what power looks like. Uncover class-leading power delivered through the Amarok’s 3.0 litre V6 TDI engine, the only V6 turbo diesel in its class. Delivering a brutish 165kW of power and 550Nm of torque, the Amarok V6 has exactly what it takes to get the job done, fast. Legendary Amarok toughness is now available in two new V6 models: the aggressive new Amarok Highline and the Amarok Ultimate.

From its ladder-frame chassis up, the Amarok is uncompromisingly tough. With its 3.0 litre V6 engine and 4MOTION four-wheel drive you can go anywhere, even through water up to 500mm deep.

This engine pushes the truck to run from 0-60 mph in 7.9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 120 mph.  The power hike enables the new truck to tow 5000 kg up from 3,500 kg in the outgoing models which now matches its competitors.
