The chassis is tough enough for whatever you throw at it – or under it. With two long chassis rails, connected by shorter rails, it consists of 7 cross sections. These cross sections offer maximum strength and rigidity optimising off-road and towing performance.
Amarok’s 4x4 system utilises a Torsen differential to distribute optimal power between all four wheels. The optional Selectable 4MOTION system gives you the choice of three modes: rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and four-wheel drive low range. At the touch of a button you can select the best mode for whatever the conditions may be.
The intelligent ‘off-road’ button sets up the vehicle for off-road driving with functions including Hill Descent Control, and recalibrated ABS settings that improve performance on dirt, and reduce the stopping distance on loose surfaces.
The tough 4-cylinder Amarok has all the grunt you need to conquer the building site or go off the beaten track. Available in manual and auto, the 2.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine generates 132kW of power and 400Nm (manual) and 420Nm (auto) of torque, making quick work of challenging terrains.
If you need even more grunt, the Amarok V6, with a 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine, delivers a thrilling 165kW of power and 180kW on Overboost. If that's still not enough, the Amarok V6 Ultimate 580 and Highline 580 Black generate an incredible 190kW of power, surging to a class-leading...
The Amarok can pack a full size ‘Euro’ pallet with its incredible 1222mm tray. Not only is it the widest, it has four lashing eyes conveniently located around the load space. Plus, when you work late, there’s a light above the rear window to illuminate the tray. And with a payload of up to 911kg, transporting almost anything is possible1.
Navigation has never been easier thanks to the optional Discover Media package, with a 6.5” colour display with touchscreen, 2D and 3D (bird's eye) map views, CD player with auxillary input and two SD card slots for navigation and media. Only available on Highline and Ultimate models.
The Composition Media system boasts a crystal clear 6.33” colour touch screen, packed with the latest multimedia functions, including App-Connect3 and Bluetooth®. For added convenience the telephone functions can be voice activated. Available on all models.
ESP helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing understeer or oversteer. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Programme will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.
Off-road ABS reduces the stopping distance on loose surfaces at the press of a button. When this function is activated the braking interval is increased; the wheels lock up in a controlled manner so that material from the ground (such as gravel or sand) build up in front of each wheel, reducing the stopping distance.
The Multi-Collision Brake system4 applies the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h when airbag sensors detect a collision, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.
Trailer Stabilisation4 complements the electronic stabilisation program. If your trailer starts to fluctuate heavily, the system slows it down through controlled braking and reduced engine torque – steadying the trailer and increasing driving safety. Genuine Amarok wiring harness must be fitted.
The Amarok’s interior boasts plenty of space to stow your belongings, including storage on the dashboard, large compartments under the front seats on the Sportline and Highline, and four cup holders. The ergoComfort 14-way electric seats, available in luxury Nappa leather appointed upholstery5, ensure a comfortable drive and safe journey.

The Amarok's broad wheelbase provides enormous stability, even when driving along slopes with a 50° incline*.
