You had high expectations. Ours were higher.

Introducing the All-New Amarok, a ute forged by some of the world’s toughest critics - Aussies. A ute that looks, feels and performs better than ever before. Uncompromising in its performance, the All-New Amarok comes with an incredible amount of new technology, premium design and unsurpassed levels of comfort and safety – everything you demanded and more. So, thanks for the tough love, Australia. It’s what pushed us to create our most capable ute yet.

Volkswagen Amarok

Performance without compromise

You didn’t hold back in demanding the best, so we haven’t held back in delivering it. The Amarok range gives you a choice of powerful diesel and petrol engines, spearheaded by the barnstorming 3.0-litre V6 TDI engine boasting 600Nm of torque. New adaptable 4x4 drive modes ensures there’s no off-road situation the Amarok can’t beat, while rear diff lock, traction control and downhill descent control remain true to the resilient Amarok spirit. The same can be said for the Amarok’s 3.5 tonne braked towing capacity2, only now an increased gross combined mass (up to 6400kg) dials up the toughness. 

Next level tech

Next level tech

Driving our toughest and most capable ute yet doesn’t mean you need to compromise on technology. We’ve taken innovation to the next level with a vertical touchscreen infotainment, up to 12 inches in certain models, that ‘levitates’ above the central console. A digital cockpit with up to 12-inch digital instrument cluster then reveals essential driving information like never before. And with wireless App-Connect, your smartphone will seamlessly connect to the  Amarok, with wireless charging on the side for extra convenience.

Safe inside and out

Safe inside and out

You shouldn’t accept anything but the best when it comes to safety, so we’ve dialled up the safety specs big time. With a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, the Amarok sets an unrivalled standard for what’s possible in a ute. It boasts up to 31 state-of-the-art driver assistance systems, 20 of which are brand new to the Amarok. From tight city streets to long open highways, features like Adaptive Cruise Control and autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist monitoring – just to name a few – make driving the Amarok easier and safer than ever before.4

The evolution of the Amarok

Up for any challenge

From maxed-out towing power to a powerful V6 engine, no stone has been left unturned in creating the most uncompromising and capable Amarok yet.

No challenge too big

No challenge too big

The Amarok is a thoroughbred off-roader. With up to six drive modes (Normal, ECO, Slippery, Mud, Snow/sand, Towing/Heavy Load), it can take on any terrain with ease. So whether you’re exploring the mountains or venturing down beach tracks, the Amarok will be up for the challenge.

The Amarok range boasts four powerful diesel and petrol engines, including:

  • 2.0-litre TDI 154kW/500Nm diesel

You’ll also find a new 10-speed automatic gearbox in select variants with low range, high range and permanent 4MOTION drivetrains for maximum capability. 

Haul anything you want

With a 3.5 tonne braked towing capacity2 and gross combined mass (GCM) of up to 6400kg, the Amarok is up for any kind of adventure. And when you’re spending a night under the stars, there’s no better place for your rooftop tent thanks to a 350kg static roof load capacity.

Bigger is better

No weekend is too big, no job is too tough thanks to the All-New Amarok’s extra wide tray and up to 1065kg payload capacity3. With enough space to accommodate a Euro pallet, you can load it up and lock it down too with robust lashing rings on the cargo bed.

Crafted to perfection

It’s amazing what a bit of tough love can do. A striking new exterior design sets the tone for what’s new inside, with a redefined interior putting premium quality and comfort at the forefront of every drive in the Amarok.

Exterior design

Designed in Australia, the All-New Amarok has been sculpted by tough love. A defining front X-shaped design marks the PanAmericana and Aventura variants, while an upright bonnet remains true to Volkswagen DNA. And with ‘Amarok’ distinctly embossed across the tailgate and commanding 21” alloy wheels on the Aventura, the All-New Amarok is striking from every angle.
