Volkswagen launches long-wheelbase Amaroks
Volkswagen Amarok Xl and XXL packages arrive priced from $10,595 and $13,595
10 Jun 2020
VOLKSWAGEN Group Australia (VGA) has finally outlined the pricing of its highly anticipated Amarok XL and XXL conversion range, with the cheapest package pegged at $10,595.
Four options have been made available to choose from based on size and the vehicle body type – XL vs XXL and cab-chassis vs cab-utility – with the factory-endorsed range stretching being taken care of by South Australia-based firm Adaptive Manufacturing.
To create the XL, the team add 310mm of extra length to the Amarok’s wheelbase behind the C-pillar, up to 650mm for the XXL, both resulting in significantly longer rear tubs or trays.
The cheapest option is the $10,595 XL pack for the dual-cab chassis variants, a figure which rises to $18,995 for the dual-cab utility.
The XXL dual-cab chassis package retails for $13,595 while the XXL dual-cab utility package is pegged at $21,995.
Any dual-cab Amarok variant is able to be stretched into XL or XXL form with the conversion costs including more than just the extra metal.
Also included in the price is a recalibrated ESC system designed to compensate for the longer wheelbase while the original five-year manufacturer warranty is untouched and rolled over thanks to the VW factory endorsement of the program.
The Amarok XL and XXL are the first vehicles developed as part of VGA’s light-commercial vehicle conversion program, with the extension idea and design stemming from Dutch company Veth Automotive – Adaptive Manufacturing produces the XL and XXL locally under licence.
According to VGA national conversion manager Andrew Hester, the Amaroks are just the tip of the iceberg with the program boasting far more potential still to come.
“VGA has a breadth of capability it has never possessed and a range unrivalled elsewhere,” he said.
“Volkswagen and its partners can engineer literally dozens of bespoke variants.”
