“New V6-powered Amarok dominates lifestyle pickup-truck market with torque and technology … The new V6 version of Volkswagen’s Amarok is surely the new king of the lifestyle pickup trucks.”
“The Amarok V6 Ultimate is in many ways the best ute on sale, period. The engine is a weapon, its dynamics are SUV-like, and its cabin layout and design are outstanding.”
“Best engine: Feedback from the judges was overwhelming and the newly-released Volkswagen Amarok V6 took line honours. The combination of smooth, linear power delivery, refinement and fuel efficiency traits (including a stop-start function and a clever eight-speed automatic transmission) earned valuable points for Volkswagen’s 3.0-litre turbo-diesel.
There’s no hiding from the stopwatch and the Amarok can accelerate to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds – while the rest of the field takes north of ten seconds. Just as impressive, the Amarok was the most efficient vehicle on test, consuming 9.0L/100km on the combined cycle.”
“The Volkswagen Amarok is the epitome of the ‘work hard, play hard’ theme … With a clean-cut design, great fit and finish, a spacious cab with modern layout, it is full of amenities and a layout that enhances well-being. The ergoComfort seats are extremely comfortable and supportive, while the 8-speed automatic is unique in the class, as is the 3.0 litre V6. Both on tarmac and off-road the driveline excels, and the refinement and elasticity of the engine are a new ethos for the segment.”
“Amarok provides the most comfortable seats compared with the competitors – and the roomiest cabin. It’s a top pedigree workhorse.”
