Tough comes from within.
The new Amarok will transform expectations of what a bakkie should be. In addition to the countless benchmark features you've come to expect from the Amarok, its new 3.0 litre V6 TDI engine delivers a brutish 165kW and 550Nm of torque. The much-anticipated Amarok V6 has exactly what it takes to get the job done, and then some...
To add to this power, an over-boost function increases the V6 Amarok's output to 180kW for up to
10 seconds to assist in those situations where a burst is most useful, such as overtaking with
a trailer in tow. It leaves nothing to be desired.
Unrivalled automatic gearbox.
Nothing else comes close to this marvel of German engineering. Both the 132kW 2.0 and 165kW V6 will be available with the Amarok’s class-leading 8-speed automatic gearbox and 4MOTION® permanent all-wheel drive. With the speed of its gear changes, the Amarok 3.0 V6 Extreme automatic achieves a top speed of 193km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 in 8 seconds. Not that bakkies are bought for racing, but it’s nice to know the Amarok would win.*

Don’t be fooled by the Amarok’s modest good looks; under the hood of this wolf you’ll find a beast that’s waiting to be unleashed and a bite of off-road capabilities to match its bark.
