The second-generation pickup, created jointly with Ford, has been in production for two years now, but the original 14-year-old model is also in service in Argentina! Demand is stable, so a separate modernization program has been prepared for the overseas Volkswagen Amarok. The truck received a new face mask in the spirit of modern Volkswagens, and both the interior and electronics will be updated.

Volkswagen designers changed the bumper, optics, radiator grille and even the hood to “modernize” the venerable model. Obviously, only the top version will have LED headlights with a luminous strip and a bumper with fog lights, while the basic Amarok will be more modest. The interior is shown in a short video so far, so there is little data.


It is known that the top versions of the pickup will receive a digital instrument panel and a modern multimedia system with a large touchscreen, adaptive cruise control and active safety driver assistants are also announced. But the technology will not be changed: the pickup will retain the 2.0 turbodiesel (140 or 180 hp) or V6 3.0 (258 hp) in conjunction with a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic. The drive is rear or permanent all-wheel drive.
