VOLKSWAGEN'S upgraded Amarok line-up started its roll-out in November 2016 with the debut of the range-topping V6 variants, which were later followed by four-cylinder versions in February 2017.
The introduction of a turbo-diesel V6 saw the Amarok range offer the most powerful engine in the utility segment, with outputs of 165kW/550Nm, which do not include its 15kW/30Nm 10-second overboost function.
A 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine carried over from the previous model, but eight-speed automatic versions did gain an extra 20Nm of torque.
All single cab variants were dropped from the utility's local line-up, with prices ranging from $38,490 for the 4x2 Dual Cab Chassis TDI420 to $67,990 for the V6 Ultimate 4x4 Dual Cab Ute TDI550.
