With the great interest pickup enthusiasts showed to the Amarok, VW decided to expand its lineup with a new singlecab version.
Volkswagen calls this a “classic workhorse” referring to the car’s versatility and functionality for the tough conditions in industry, construction and agriculture. The heavy duty suspension enables a maximum load rating of up to 1.248 tonnes
The singlecab Amarok has a load bed that has been extended to 2,205 millimetres and is 65 cm longer than that of the double cab. To put that into perspective, VW sets an example: This pickup can easily accommodate two Euro pallets crosswise, one behind the other, leaving another 60 cm of bed length available.
Engine-wise, you get the 2.0-litre TDI engine with 90 kW / 122 PS and as bi-turbo with 120 kW / 163 PS, which can be had with rear wheel drive or selectable four-wheel drive 4MOTION with reduction gearing – both in connection with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The 122 PS version of Amarol averages 7.2 litres per 100 kilometres, which is equal to a CO2 output of 189 g/km. That is pretty good for a hardworking pickup.
Visually, you get a front bumper painted to match the colour of the vehicle, 18 or 19-inch alloy wheels. The car can also be specified with navigation system. Pricing for the Amarok singlecab starts from 19,500 EURO for the rear-drive 122PS version in Germany.
