Volkswagen will reportedly update its only pickup truck. The 2019 VW Amarok will host a new more powerful engine and some changes outside. Still, the biggest changes will happen inside, where the vehicle gets a completely new infotainment, some special features, and ultra-cozy seats.
This is definitely one of the best pickups on the world. The only reason why you cant find this VW pickup in the list of best pickup trucks for 2019 is that this model isn’t available on the US market. So, the biggest truck topics in coming months will be rumors about possible Amarok release in the United States.
2019 VW Amarok Specs and Engine Options
The power will come from a single oil-burner unit. It’s an all-new 3.0-liter V-6 TDI unit. The oil-chugging will have two outputs. The base model will get a 161-hp engine, while the topper hosts a 220 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of twist from the same engine. By using the more potent unit, the 2019 Amarok will be able to tow up to 3500 tonnes, while a 0-60 mph sprint should be below 8 seconds. Not bad for an oil-burner at all.
The exterior changes are almost invisible. There are new LED graphics for the headlights and some slight changes to the grille. Though the biggest changes are available side steps for the driver, yet they are optional only.
Inside, the amazing pickup truck features a bigger and better infotainment display and better quality materials. Plus, there is a new steering wheel with more functions. The front seats will be truly amazing. That’s due to 14-way adjustment, which sets every position perfect. It’s also important to mention that the future Amarok gets Park Pilot. The system will make parking a lot easier because it combines a backup camera with the infotainment display. In addition, the truck will host more USB ports from today’s model as well as standard Bluetooth connectivity.
Price and Release date
Even though it’s going to be better from its predecessor, the pickup will still feature a pretty acceptable price, which starts just a little bit over $28K. In last few months, there are some serious rumors that this pickup will come to the US market.
