Best pickup truck available

 

VW Amarok is a four-wheel drive pickup truck that comes with a 168bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine and a manual gearbox. A 10-speed automatic box is available on the more powerful 2.0 diesel and standard on the range-topping 3.0 V6 diesel. You even purchase a tent to pitch on the roof.

 

Amarok is a staple of the German firm’s line-up. Sold by VW Commercial Vehicles, you can buy it at van centres across the country. It also doubles as n upmarket family car and also caters to your business needs.

The original Amarok hit the market in the UK in 2012 and received a major update in 2016. The changes included replacing its 2.0 TDI diesel with a 3.0 V6TDI. In Europe, the extended and standard can versions of Amarok were being offered. However, in the UK the double cab variant was the only option available.

Despite being pricier than its competitors, the Amarok became more of an upmarket choice. The V6 engine included in the design in 2016 made it a real rival to the Mercedes X-class. The V6 variant is available in three power outputs:163PS, 204PS, and 258PS. The least powerful engine was meant for work use. the makers offered special editions such as Black Edition, Aventura, Atacama, and Canyon. These came with the most powerful diesel options.

Amarok is a commercial vehicle with a payload in excess of one tonne. The load bed has a lot of space between its wide tailgate opening for loading bulky items into the pickup truck. There is also towing weight of up to 3.1 tonnes making it a great option for people who pull trailers regularly.

What is Amarok like on the inside?

Both Volkswagen and Ford worked independently while designing this vehicle. As a reason, you will come across a few elements that are common to Volkswagen and a few unique ones. The dashboard on Aventura and Pan Americana are wrapped in leather exuding a premium feel. The infotainment system in the cabin features an exclusive Volkswagen skin with Sync 4 infotainment by Ford. This implies features such as over-the-air updates, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay along with DAB+ digital radio ad AM/FM. You will come across Harman/Kardon-branded system when it comes to sound setup within the cabin. It features an amplifier and subwoofer located in the second row behind the backrest.

 

The rest of the sound setup is easy to use and it features the ability to recognize voice commands. It can be controlled via a voice cloud-based recognition feature on your smartphone or through a native infotainment system. The ergonomics team while designing chose foam material within the seats to ensure seat comfort. There is a towing menu that offers critical data coupled with brake controllers and an integrated tow bar. The build quality appears decent.

The storage space is pretty decent which features two cup holders housed within the central console. It also comes with a phone charging slot. there is also a provision for USB-A and USB-C connectivity. Near AEB equipment, you will come across an extra USB-A port that allows you to set up the dash camera. The design also includes two glove boxes.

The steering wheels use physical buttons instead of haptic touch elements. The base of the second row can be lifted to access an additional small storage area. There is a storage nook that lets you house jack and other emergency safety equipment. The rear seats are equipped with ISOFIX anchors on the outboard positions.

 

Practicality and Load Space

 

The load bed in the VW Amarok is one of the largest of any double-cab pick-up available in the UK. It has a volume of 2.5 sq. meters. The double-cab UK model still has the widest bodies around. The use of 3.0-litre TDI V6 diesel allows you to tow a 3,000 kg trailer with the highest specification versions capable of pulling 3,100 kg.

 

The load area features four lashing rings. The rear window rack can be availed by paying £170. Other extras include a protective coating for the painted load bed and an electric tow bar. Apart from these, there are no extras you need to purchase. All versions come with Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) as standard. The package consists of a trailer stabilization system that uses the ABS brake systems and the vehicle’s anti-skid system for maintaining control.

Safety and reliability

 

The Amarok is one of the safest options available in the pickup truck market segment. It not just gets the VW standard ESP, but also comes with an off-road function that allows a bit of slip if you need it in muddy conditions. Moreover, there is an electronic differential lock along with hill start and hill descent assist. These options allow you to pull cruise through steep inclines and descend slippery off-road drops safely.

The Post Collision System has been included in the mix too. It helps in limiting the damages that result due to secondary impacts in an event of an accident. All versions of Amarok come with a driver, front passenger, and front side/head airbags. The standard kit includes heated door mirrors and air-conditioning as well. This pickup truck is a decent performer. The owners haven’t reported any major reliability problems as such.

 

Driving and performance

 

The Amarok’s diesel motor delivers a refined performance on startup. Although it could be a little louder under hard acceleration, however, you can expect the rough rumbling to be replaced with a  muted roar. The engine delivers superior performance at cruising speeds.

Given its considerable weight and large dimensions, the truck rides quite well. You will not experience much of the bounce from the rear end that you notice in some unladen pick-ups. There is pleasant suppleness to the low-speed ride but at higher speeds, there can be a few mild bouncing motions at times. However, there are plenty of grips and the truck seems to hold on well in corners. The permanent Motion model features a softer suspension.

Amarok’s 3.0-litre diesel is smooth and refined. The top specifications deliver phenomenal performance. There is more than sufficient acceleration to handle most situations on the road. 0-62mph comes in just 7.4 seconds while the top speed is 127mph. The VW is significantly faster in a straight line than other pickup trucks available in the market.

 

Should you buy Volkswagen Amarok?

 

The Volkswagen Amarok stands out among other pickups for its car-like cabin and the comfort it promises on the road. Though it is slightly more expensive than its competitors, it can tow effortlessly and carry more. Volkswagen has ensured that the model has a much wider band of drivability while Ford has lent on cushiness and comfort. Volkswagen has lent variability and sportiness to the model. The V6 diesel engine promises rapid overtaking. This revolutionary Volkswagen Amarok pickup truck model performs better than most SUVs and is very good off-road.
