VOLKSWAGEN AMAROK

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - LIGHT COMMERCIAL OVERVIEW -

The Amarok is cer­tainly demon­strat­ing its de­sir­abil­ity through dis­tinc­tion if the reg­is­tra­tion num­bers are any­thing to go by. Year-to-date sees a def­i­nite in­crease for the brand in the 4x4 seg­ment, which is only to be ex­pected as all Amaroks are 4MOTION mod­els and all are diesels; three with two-litre en­gines and three three-litre V6 mod­els, within the six-ve­hi­cle line-up. Power and torque fig­ures are 132kw and 420Nm and 165kw with 550Nm re­spec­tively. Volkswagen is mak­ing an unashamed bid for the most pow­er­ful ute in the mar­ket and given the ‘over­boost’ fa­cil­ity in the top end mod­els, which takes the power out­put to 180kw for a 10 sec­ond burst, that bid looks to have been a suc­cess.
