The Amarok V6 Double Cab bakkie has been introduced locally with 190kW of power, and celebrates 10 years of Amarok sales in South Africa.
Since the Amarok range launch in 2010, they have sold over 37 000 units (single and double cabs). The Amarok model range now consists of the following engines; the 2.0 BiTDI 132kW and the 3.0 V6 TDI 190kW.
The most powerful Amarok sets itself apart from the rest of the range through the new 3.0-litre V6 190kW TDI engine, which has 25kW more power as well as 30Nm more torque than the outgoing 165kW derivative.
The Amarok 3.0-litre V6 TDI generates 190kW from 3 000 to 4 500 rpm and 580Nm of torque from 1 400 to 2 750 rpm which is channelled through its standard eight-speed automatic gearbox. The Amarok, which is one of the quickest double cab bakkies in the market thanks to launch control available for fast acceleration, completes the zero to 100 km/h sprint in just 7.6 seconds going on to a top speed of 207 km/h. The average fuel consumption is 9.5 litres per 100 kilometres.
With an over boost function that powers the Amarok to a maximum power output of 200 kW for 10 seconds, it is the most powerful bakkie on sale in South Africa right now.
Off-road ABS and stability control enhance the Amarok’s safety features and four disc brakes all round give the Amarok V6 190kW enormous stopping power. The Amarok also has the largest bin, largest loading width and the largest cabin in its class.
The Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Amarok comes standard with a three-year/100 000km manufacturer warranty, five-year/90 000 km Genuine Easy Drive Service Plan and a six-year anti-corrosion warranty, which is incidentally, the best in its class. The service interval is set at 15 000 km intervals.
