Following its recent announcement, the new VW Amarok is almost ready for its local launch in 2023. With a design that originates in Germany and Australia, this charismatic vehicle will be built exclusively in Silverton, South Africa. Before its full launch at a global media event in Q4 this year, let’s look at some of the new Amarok’s features and styling choices.

With a facade that continues Volkswagen’s recent horizontal design focus, the new Amarok comes with a stern appearance that immediately delivers clear confidence. This vehicle is 96mm longer than its predecessor, meaning more cabin space. Under the bonnet, there is an option between 3 different 4-cylinder diesel engines and a 3.0 V6 power unit. For the adventurous, additional optional lifestyle accessories will be available.

The all-new Amarok will be available in 4 different double cab models:
  • Amarok
  • Amarok Life
  • Amarok Style
  • Amarok PanAmericana
  • Amarok Aventura (Which will replace the existing Extreme model)
As we step inside, the new Amarok continues to impress. Luxurious seats ensure that every journey will be completely comfortable and a cutting-edge digital cockpit guarantees full control in all environments. This technology is bolstered by more than 30 driver assist systems. Some of these include park assist, intelligent speed assist, and adaptive cruise control. The aforementioned display units will be between 8 and 12-inches and 10 or 12-inches, depending on the variant that is chosen.

With its presence already felt, the new VW Amarok is a phenomenal vehicle that will be released to local customers in the first quarter of 2023. Made in South Africa and ready to dominate the motoring landscape, this bakkie is destined to become an icon.
