Load areas and payload

Handles heavy-duty jobs with ease

A high level of driving comfort, even with high payloads: The standard 3+2 leaf springs provide high levels of comfort and can cope with a maximum payload of 972 kg. The Amarok can pack a full size ‘Euro’ pallet with its incredible 1222mm tray.

4MOTION and off-road mode

Permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive

Even under extreme conditions, the Amarok turns every journey into an experience. That’s because its chassis and drive system have been perfectly tuned – and combined with the tried-and-tested 4MOTION all-wheel drive.

The intelligent ‘off-road’ button sets up the vehicle for off-road driving with functions including Hill Descent Control, and recalibrated ABS settings that improve performance on dirt, and reduce the stopping distance on loose surfaces.

TDI Engine

Power comes from within

The tough 4-cylinder Amarok has all the grunt you need to conquer the building site or go off the beaten track. Available in automatic, the 2.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine generates 132kW of power.

If you need even more grunt, the Amarok V6, with a 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine, delivers a thrilling 190kW of power and a class-leading 200kW on Overboost. With that amount of power, very little stands in its way.

Safety Features

Keeping you safe on every journey

Loaded with driver aids the Amarok will help make you a better and safer driver on-road and off-road. All Amaroks have standard Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) to avoid skidding plus Hill Hold Assist (HHA) to prevent slides on hill starts, and Hill Descent Control (HDC) to ease Amarok down steep descents, even without engine braking.

8-Speed Gearbox

Go 8th gear places

With the refinement you expect of Volkswagen, you might forget you are in a rugged workhorse. The sophisticated interior makes driving a dream especially with the technically advanced, 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Offroad ABS

A short tap on the brakes.

A shorter braking distance. Once activated, the wheels lock briefly when braking on loose surfaces, thereby essentially creating a wedge of material under the wheel and significantly reducing the braking distance. This noticeably increases the driving safety.

Hill Descent Assist

Walking speed Activated automatically.

When off-roading, Hill Descent Assist lets you drive down slopes in a safe, controlled manner thanks to the engine management’s ability to regulate the engine. The vehicle’s speed is maintained at a constant pace.

Ground Clearance

Inclined towards a top performance

The Amarok’s increased ground clearance means it can handle even extreme angles, gradients and slopes.

Ramp angle

Thanks to its increased clearance and depending on the loading condition, the Amarok can climb ramps with an angle of 15.6° to 20.1°.

Slope angle and wading depth

The Amarok boasts a maximum slope angle of 29.5° at the front and 18.0° at the rear. It can handle pools with a wading depth of up to 500 mm.

Lateral Slop Angle

Masters any situation

An off-road performance of the highest standard: The wide wheelbase ensures an incredible level of stability, even when driving on slopes with a 50° incline.

Wide load platform

Put a load on. Take a load off.

The Amarok can handle bulky cargo with ease. That’s because it has more space between its wheels. You can even load Euro pallets on crosswise thanks to its load-through width.

  • Load-through width of 1,222 mm
  • 2.52 m² cargo box
  • 508 mm tall dropside
  • Lower loading sill height of 780 mm


Be sure to turn heads

The Amarok comes witht a stylish range of alloy wheelsincluding 17″ and 19″ alloys.

“Posadas” 17 inch alloy wheel – 255/60 R 17


The Amarok doesn’t just perform like a beast, it looks like one too. The Amarok comes with a host of exterior features designed to reflect its on-road and off-road capabilities. High strength steel throughout the chassis and body provide a robust platform while hi-tech features such as the Bi-Xenon headlights (now standard on Comfortline) pave the path ahead; they also light up the faces of passers-by.

Storage Areas

Plenty of space

From coffee cups and work gloves through to a water bottle: the Amarok’s interior has plenty of storage space for everything that you need for both work and play. This includes a storage compartment on the dash panel, spacious storage areas under the front seats and four cup holders.


Almost too beautiful to be there

You have reached your destination. However, you could simply stay seated in the Amarok’s comfortable interior. After all, it offers the most spacious legroom in its class. And though the seats may be higher than in a sports utility vehicle – they are just as comfortable. What’s more, the ergoComfort front seats can be carefully adjusted to your needs at the touch of a button. And you may not even want to get out at all.

ergoComfort seats

In the Amarok Aventura, both the driver and front passenger enjoy the ride on ergoComfort seats. Apart from their electric 12-way adjustment system, both leather seats also have manual 2-way adjustment and have been awarded the AGR (Campaign for Healthy Backs) quality seal for outstanding ergonomics.

Multimedia Infotainment

Off the beaten soundtrack

A long day at work and an even longer off-roading? The Amarok, you won’t miss anything thats going on at home or out on the road thanks to cutting-edge connectivity and navigation systems.

The crystal clear 6.33″ colour touch screen is packed with the latest multimedia functions.

Multifunction Displays

Mileage, outside temperature, average fuel consumption and all the other information that you may need on the road: Our multifunction displays bring all this information together in one place. In a clear display directly in the driver’s field of vision.

“Premium” multifunction display

hanks to the high-resolution 3D colour monitor for the “Premium” multifunction display, you can keep your eyes on all key information and enjoy easy access to it with the animated menu structure.

Air conditioning and heating systems

If you work in agriculture or forestry, you are used to almost all kinds of weather. Whether the sun is beating down on the cab at 30 degrees or it’s freezing in the depths of winter. That means staying strong – and having the right heating and air conditioning systems on board. They will keep the Amarok’s cab at the ideal temperature in any weather.

“Climatronic” air conditioning system with allergen filter

This system offers 2-zone temperature control for the driver and front passenger as well as manual air recirculation. The air conditioning adds more or less cool air depending on the intensity of the sun’s rays and the outside temperature. The coating of the allergen filter keeps out even very small particles such as allergenic substances.

Automatic Post-Collision Braking System

Brake away from critical situations

The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System triggers braking after a collision, with the aim of preventing secondary collisions. After a short delay, the vehicle begins a phased braking action down to 10 km/h, during which the driver can take over at any time.

Stabilisation Systems

Stops you from veering off your path

Regardless of whether you love a sporty driving style, want to prove yourself while driving off-road or pull a heavy load: the trailer stabilisation function and Electronic Stability Control will help you out.

Trailer stabilisation

If your trailer starts to snake back and forth, the standard system carefully brakes the towing vehicle and reduces the engine’s torque. This smooths out the trailer and maintains driving safety.

Electronic Stability Control (not illustrated)

Prevents under- or over-steering via targeted braking of individual wheels.
