Some features and benefits worth knowing.
Since its launch in September 2010, Volkswagen Amarok Double Cab has modernised the South African light commercial vehicles (LCV) segment. To date, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles have sold nearly 7 200
Amarok Double Cab units in South Africa.
Amarok Double Cab is one of the the most technically advanced bakkies in South Africa. Thanks to its highly advanced turbo charged direct injection TDI engines that set new standards when it comes to fuel
economy and emissions. Amarok’s active and passive safety systems as well as convenience features all match up to passenger car standards.
The front-end of the Amarok displays the Volkswagen Design DNA. The visual unit formed by the horizontal headlights and radiator grille with its louvers and decorative trim accents make the Amarok stands out on the road.
The horizontal lines in the well-defined interplay of body surfaces showcase high precision workmanship. Extending back from the vehicle’s front end is a surface that develops over the fender contour to the side windows
and encloses them in an arch. The cleanly sculpted curvatures of the bakkie’s side body panels and engine hood give the Amarok the rugged look typical of a bakkie.
At the rear, the prominent VW logo on the tailgate catches the eye. The logo is framed by the bakkie’s taillights with their distinctive ‘night’ design. The high standards of the development team are expressed in details
like this, which present the Amarok as a true Volkswagen and its top quality and high-class design sets it apart from the competition.
Stronger, refined and fuel-efficient TDI engines Amarok Double Cab is now available with a refined, stronger and yet fuel efficient 2.0 BiTDI 132kW engine. The technologically advanced BiTDI engine features common rail
direct injection with two-stage control bi-turbo. The maximum torque of 400 Newton-meter is still delivered at a low 1 500-2250rpm in spite of the extra 12kW power upgrade. This performance contrasts with a
remarkably low combined fuel consumption of just 7.9 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres (8.0 litres per 100 kilometres for 4MOTION). The 0-100 km/h acceleration is achieved in 10.3 seconds (10.6 seconds for
4x2) and it has top speed of 184 km/h (183 km/h for 4MOTION).
The second engine in the Amarok Double cab model range is another four cylinder TDI with maximum power of 90kW. Its technology includes a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry. The “small” TDI develops an
impressive torque of 340 Newton-meter from1750 rpm. It consumes just 7.7 l/100 km. The Amarok with the 90kW engine sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 13.5 seconds (13.7 seconds for 4MOTION). Its top speed is reached
at 163 km/h (161 km/h for 4MOTION).
The 2.0 TSI with 118kW is the only petrol engine in the range. This turbo charged engine has maximum torque of 300 Newton-meter that is available between 1600-3750 rpm. It has combined fuel consumption of 9.6 litres per
100 kilometres. It only takes the 2.0 TSI 118kW Amarok 9.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to100 km/h. It has top speed of 180km/h.
The Amarok double cab comes with a six-speed manual transmission.
Dynamic and safe on any terrain
Amarok Double Cab customers have an option of two different driveline versions, namely switchable four-wheel drive (4MOTION) and rear-wheel drive (4x2). The latter version appeals to customers who are mainly interested
in the Amarok’s styling and versatility in a utility application. The all-wheel-drive version is right at home in all terrains.
The Amarok 4MOTION with switchable four-wheel drive is identified by a red “4” in the badging. This is an ideal vehicle for off-road outings when the going gets tough, but is equally at home in an urban environment.
It utilises a typical ‘rigid’ system for its four-wheel drive, a system that is practice-proven in the bakkie segment. When engaged at the press of a button it transfers power equally to both axles. For more difficult
terrain a low ratio transfer case provides exceptional traction to make even the most severe off-road passages easy to master.
Even inclines with a slope angle of 45 degrees at full payload are no obstacle for the Amarok 4MOTION. An optional heavy duty spring package with three main and two auxiliary spring packs ensures a high overload
safety factor and comfort in all load situations.
