The Amarok Canyon is a concept version of Volkswagen’s rugged pickup truck designed, apparently, to appeal to the fans of ‘freestyle kayaking’. That kinda reflects the car’s versatility and flexibility. You can use it either as a business machine, or for leisure. The Canyon is fitted with special features to become especially good off road.
Finished in a special bright ‘Baladi Orange’ paint, the Canton Amarok is jacked up by 40mm using a lift kit and fitted with big AT tyres, size 275/65 R 18, mounted on ‘Durban’ type wheels painted in ‘High Gloss Adamantium Dark’. The concept is a full 85 mm taller than the production model. The wheel housings are also widened by 35 mm.
Other off-roady stuff on the exterior include auxiliary headlights mounted on its roof, smoked rear lights and the colour-contrasting underbody protection, as well as two electrically deployed tread plates.
The interior is finished in a two-tone theme with sports seats, three-spoke steering wheel and gear shift lever trim with orange accents. To show the Kayak connection, two carbon fibre kayaks are securely mounted to the cargo floor at the rear. The floor is designed with two formed cut-outs with soft padding, while the kayak bows are mounted on a styling bar in ‘High Gloss Adamantium Dark’ with straps for firmly securing the boats.
Amarok Canyon is powered by the 2.0 TDI bi-turbo diesel engine with 180 PS and 400 Nm of torque.
