Volkswagen Amarok is available as three different driveline versions: permanent all-wheel drive, selectable four-wheel drive (both 4MOTION) and rear-wheel drive (4×2).
The VW Amarok 4MOTION with selectable four-wheel drive and a red “4″ in the signature is the ideal choice for journeys over hill and dale. It utilizes a rigid lock for its four-wheel drive, a feature that is practice-proven in the pickup segment. When it is engaged at the press of a button, it produces solid power transfer to the axles. For the most difficult jobs, there is also reduced off-road gearing that makes complicated off-road passages easy to master.
The Volkswagen Amarok 4MOTION with a black “4″ makes its appearance with permanent all-wheel drive and greater comfort. It exploits the advantages of all-wheel drive for superior vehicle dynamics on paved roads too. Its Torsen differential is a rarity in its class. It distributes drive forces variably between the front and rear axles; in the default setting, power is distributed 40:60, resulting in excellent vehicle dynamics and high traction.
The Volkswagen Amarok is being launched in three equipment lines. The VW Amarok base version relies on purely mechanical and extremely tough components: window lifts, door locking mechanisms and mirror adjustment are all manual. The front bumper, door handles and mirrors are unpainted, and this makes them ideal for heavy duty use.
One grade higher in convenience features is the Volkswagen Amarok Trendline. On this version, the front bumper, door handles and mirror housings are painted in body colour. Window lifts, door locks and mirror adjusters are all electrically powered.
The VW Amarok Highline offers exclusive features. Building on the Trendline equipment line, the Highline has upgrades such as part-chrome mirror housings, various chrome accents outside and inside the vehicle and fender flares in body colour that create space for 17-inch alloy wheels.
In addition to the pickup’s numerous standard features, an extensive accessories program is being offered for the Volkswagen Amarok as well – accessories range from a styling bar to running boards, cargo cover, the versatile Multi-Connect mounting system (standard from Trendline) and a large selection of alloy wheels.
