Whether it be getting medicine and food to remote locations, protecting wildlife in the African savanna or saving lives at the beach, the places where pick-ups are used are infinitely varied.
Be it simply driving on open land, building sites or on rough tracks, the highlights of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ new Amarok are without doubt its versatility and off-road capabilities. Developed by teams in Australia and Europe, the premium pick-up is being produced in future in South Africa.
In 2022, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ new Amarok will make its début and be available then to order in the first few markets.
The new Amarok not only has a completely new appearance inside and out, but in future also has even more extensive equipment on board, which is useful not only when being utilised as work tools.
“The Amarok makes possible what in many places appears impossible at first sight: it makes things easier for its users by assisting them in their work and everyday lives,” says Dr Lars Krause, brand board of management member for sales and marketing at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
“That’s because the Amarok provides solutions that enable our customers to achieve their goals – especially when things get difficult.”
The Amarok will from 2022 thus be featuring innovations that have not been seen before in this segment.
Albert-Johann Kirzinger, head of design at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles said, “We’ve given the strength and power of the new Amarok an unambiguous expression, with clear Volkswagen DNA inside and out. This shows the confidence of the model, which impresses visually with a puffed-out chest and which supports the men and women making the future.”
In the southern hemisphere the vehicle – the only one to date with V6-cylinder diesel engines as a drive system to make a name for itself in pick-ups’ so-called B segment – is still going strong. In Europe, it will again be possible to order the Amarok as a new vehicle from late 2022.
