Volkswagen Media Release
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is putting words into action: the power that highlighted the Amarok concept vehicle shown at the 2016 IAA International Motor Show will soon make it to New Zealand shores.
An upgraded version of the current 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 165kW/550Nm diesel engine will be introduced, pumping out 190kW of power (and up to 200kW on overboost with a kick of the accelerator pedal) and 580Nm of torque.
So class-leading power and performance is reinforced once again – credentials that are sure to delight both commercial users and private customers alike. The current Amarok engine’s full torque is already available at between 1,400 and 3,000 rpm and the full power output from 3,250 to 4,000 rpm. Permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission with torque converter come as standard on the Amarok.
Kevin Richards, Head of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles New Zealand commented, “The introduction of the next level Amarok with an upgraded power plant signifies our intention of continuing to offer the most powerful ute in its class. The Volkswagen Amarok continues to be a success story for us across the country, whether it be in our tried and tested 2.0-litre models or more recently with our V6 offering. We are hoping to have very limited volumes of the Amarok 580Nm model available to existing clients towards the end of 2018, with full stock coming on-board in early 2019.”
“If you have Karoq at the top of your list, well done, you have the prime contender in mind.”
Cam belts, or more accurately timing belts, are typically made of a solid material which reliably transfers your engine’s power from a crankshaft to a camshaft, causing your engine’s valves to open and close. A fuel/air mixture then enters a combustion chamber, combusts, and drives the pistons.
This month saw Volkswagen’s Dealer of the Year Awards, an annual event hosted by Volkswagen New Zealand to recognise and reward all-round excellence. Miles Continental are very proud to take home the titles of ‘Metro Marketing Campaign of the Year’ and ‘Metro Passenger Sales 5-Star Award’, along with finalist for ‘Metro Passenger Sales Department of the Year’.
