THE tow­ing ca­pac­ity of Volk­swa­gen’s MY18 Amarok V6 range has been up­graded from three to 3.5 tonnes.

De­spite the V6 turbo diesel gen­er­at­ing the same 165kw and 550Nm, the re­design of the rear step as­sem­bly al­lowed the Aus­tralian Volk­swa­gen Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles (AVCV) team to boost the V6’s tow­ing ca­pac­ity by 500kg. A new 3.5-tonne rated gen­uine tow­bar will also be avail­able.

Nick Reid, AVCV’S mar­ket­ing man­ager, ex­plained that his team is thrilled to offer Amarok cus­tomers in­creased tow­ing ca­pac­ity.

“We know that Amarok buy­ers use their ve­hi­cle for work and play. The abil­ity to tow a car­a­van or a boat is at the very heart of the Amarok, and we’re glad that we’re able to offer this en­hance­ment to our cus­tomers, and their week­ends,” Reid said.

The RRP of all V6 Amaroks re­mains un­changed: Sport­line $55,490; High­line $59,990; Ul­ti­mate $67,990. Cus­tomers can order an MY18 V6 ’Rok from VW’S na­tional dealer net­work.
