Uncompromising off road. Spirited on it. The multiple award-winning Amarok retained its trophy for What Car? Pick-up of the Year for 2020. Back-to-back tests against class rivals and assessments of running costs, practicality and equipment levels were all factored into the expert What Car? verdict. Whatever your cargo, wherever you go, you can count on the Amarok to deliver.
Strong, tough and just as comfortable off-road as on. The Volkswagen Amarok has arrived.
The Amarok’s range of 3.0 litre V6 TDI engines have more than enough power to tackle the most demanding terrain. 258PS, a temporary over-boost to 272PS and 580 Nm of torque.

Gravel, tarmac, earth. In the Amarok you'll experience the pinnacle of driving comfort on almost any terrain. The Amarok's wide wheelbase and increased ground clearance mean it can handle even extreme angles, gradients and slopes. It combines high ground clearance and excellent body stability with proven 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The result: traction in virtually every situation, even with heavy payloads.
From steep slopes to rushing streams, the Amarok's got it covered. It has a maximum slope angle of 29.5° at the front and 18.0° at the rear, and can handle pools with a wading depth of 500 mm.
The outstanding off-road ABS as well as the Hill Descent Assist ensure high levels of safety across all terrains. Optional robust underride guard package protects the fuel tank against stones and branches on the ground.
In addition to the conventional anti-lock braking system, the new Amarok is also equipped with off-road ABS which has been specially developed for use off the beaten track. Simply press a button to activate the off-road ABS. This will increase the braking interval so that small wedges of material on the ground (such as gravel or sand) build up in front of each wheel. This can substantially reduce the stopping distance of the vehicle.
