New Zealand Company Vehicle - - CONTENTS -

Volk­swa­gen Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles is putting words into ac­tion: the power be­hind the Amarok con­cept ve­hi­cle shown at the 2016 IAA In­ter­na­tional Motor Show will soon make it to New Zealand shores. An up­graded ver­sion of the cur­rent 3.0-litre tur­bocharged V6 165kw/550nm diesel en­gine will be in­tro­duced be­fore the end of the year, pumping out 190kw of power (and up to 200kw on over­boost) and 580Nm of torque. Kevin Richards, Head of Volk­swa­gen Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles New Zealand said: “The in­tro­duc­tion of the next level Amarok with an up­graded power plant sig­ni­fies our in­ten­tion of con­tin­u­ing to of­fer the most pow­er­ful ute in its class. “We are hop­ing to have very limited vol­umes of the Amarok 580Nm model avail­able to ex­ist­ing clients to­wards the end of 2018, with full stock com­ing on-board in early 2019.”
