In the world of utes, the word ‘tough’ gets bandied about a lot these days. So much so that it’s lost a bit of its, well, toughness. But if you’re really looking for tough, an uncompromising, resilient, powerful, clever kind of tough. Then look no further. Because tough comes from within.
The bold, uncompromising and thrilling performance of the V6 TDI engine makes the Amarok the ultimate ute on the road, or in the bush. The most powerful ute in its class, the Amarok V6 sets the benchmark within the Australian ute segment.
The 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel V6 Engine in the V6 Core, Sportline and Highline variants offer 165kW of power. That surges to an impressive 180kW of power with the Overboost feature engaged and 550Nm of torque, making it capable of doing the 0 to 100 dash in just 7.9 seconds.
In need of a bit more punch? With a powerful 580Nm of torque, the Ultimate and Black variants are tuned to deliver 190kW of power surging to 200kW of power on Overboost, launching it through the 0 to 100 dash in 7.3 seconds.
Want that extra pull? Powerful enough to handle almost anything, the V6 pulls an incredible braked towing capacity of 3500kg when fitted with a genuine Volkswagen tow bar.
Volkswagen’s cutting-edge 4-cylinder TDI engine packs an impressive 400Nm of torque and 132kW of power.
The most powerful V6 ute in its class is powerful enough to handle almost anything, with a braked towing capacity of 3500kg when fitted with a genuine Volkswagen tow bar. The 4 cylinders are no slouch either, with a braked towing capacity of 3000kgs.
The most powerful ute in its class also boasts some serious stopping power. The Amarok V6 features front and rear ventilated disc brakes, which means exceptional braking performance and reduced chance of brake fade.
Pallets, sandbags, stones – anything is possible with a payload of up to 911kg (depending on model).
The Amarok can pack a full size ‘Euro’ pallet with its class-leading 1222mm tray. This means it can accommodate a full-size ‘Euro’ pallet, and the fact that the tough tailgate can cope with loads up to 200kg, proves the Amarok will take the brunt of the most extreme workloads. Not only is it the widest, it has four lashing eyes conveniently located around the load space. Plus, when you work late, there’s a light above the rear window to illuminate the tray.
The chassis is tough enough for whatever you throw at it – or under it. With two long chassis rails, connected by shorter rails, it consists of 7 cross sections. These cross sections offer maximum strength and rigidity optimising off-road and towing performance.
The Amarok has an intelligent ‘off-road’ button that sets up the vehicle for off-road driving. The off-road functions activated include Hill Descent Control, and recalibrated ABS settings that improve performance on dirt, and reduce the stopping distance on loose surfaces.
The 4x4 system utilises a Torsen differential to distribute optimal power between all four wheels. With a 40:60, front to rear power distribution, the Amarok shines on all road surfaces.
The mechanical differential lock makes starting up in adverse, off-road conditions much easier. When the going gets tough you can rely on this standard diff-lock, which mechanically locks the rear wheels to ensure maximum traction in any condition.
With an aggressive front, the Amarok V6 is every bit as rugged on the outside as it is underneath. We’ve dialed up the brawn with large alloy wheels, a sports bar and illuminated side steps on selected models. Along with Bi-Xenon headlights, daytime running lamps and chrome accents, style never takes a back seat in this ute (illuminated side steps available on Ultimate model only).
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.
We’ve also completely redesigned the dash to include the latest multimedia musts like App-Connect1 on all models. Plus, long drives are a breeze when you and your passenger are sitting in new ergoComfort 14-way electric seats, available in luxury Nappa leather2.

The off-road ABS reduces the stopping distance on loose surfaces at the press of a button. When this function is activated the braking interval is increased; the wheels lock up in a controlled manner so that material from the ground (such as gravel or sand) build up in front of each wheel, reducing the stopping distance.
The trailer stabilisation complements the electronic stabilisation program. If your trailer starts to fluctuate heavily, the system slows it down through controlled braking and reduced engine torque – steadying the trailer and increasing driving safety. Genuine Amarok wiring harness must be fitted.
Helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing understeer or oversteer. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Programme will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.
When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.
