Volkswagen introduced the new generation Amarok pickup


Volkswagen has officially unveiled the second-generation Amarok pickup, which will go on sale before the end of the year. The main markets for it will be Australia, New Zealand, Africa, the Middle East and Europe, and the production will be established in South Africa. Volkswagen expects that the new Amarok will become more popular than the first generation of the model, which has sold over 830,000 units, the Autonews.ru portal writes.

The second-generation Volkswagen Amarok pickup has become 96 mm longer than its predecessor (now 5350 mm), and the wheelbase has grown by 173 mm (up to 3270 mm). Off-road capabilities have also become better: for example, now the fording depth is 800 mm, although it used to be 500 mm. The car will be produced in two versions: with a four-door double cab (DoubleCab) and with a two-door single cab (SingleCab).

Volkswagen is positioning the new Amarok as a premium pickup truck. Therefore, in the cabin you can see large beautiful screens with a diagonal of 8 to 12 inches - depending on the configuration. In addition, the car is equipped with a Harman Kardon music system, electric seat adjustment, etc.

Thanks to the increase in wheelbase and length, the pickup truck's cargo capabilities have also grown. For example, a single cab model can accommodate two Euro pallets at once, and the maximum payload has increased to 1.6 tons.

As for the engines of the new Amarok, the base will be a 2-liter diesel with 150 hp, 170 hp or 204 hp. And at the top of the range there will be a 3-liter V6 diesel engine - it will produce 241 - 250 hp, depending on the market. Together with engines with a power of over 170 hp it will work a 10-speed automatic transmission, and simpler versions will receive 6- or 8-speed "automatic" or "mechanics". All-wheel drive will be standard, but simple cars will get a system with plug-in all-wheel drive, and richer modifications will get a permanent 4x4.
