This is Amarok. The new generation Volkswagen Ute

Discover the all‑new Amarok ute, more capable than ever to tackle any challenge, and conquer every terrain. 

Built tough from the ground up with cutting-edge technology, a bold redesign, and premium comfort ensuring it’s not just another ute — it’s a force to be reckoned with.

Gear up for the toughest tasks and effortlessly transition between being a reliable workhorse and your rugged off-road explorer. Step inside the spacious double cab for unparalleled comfort, enhanced by a range of new driving assistance features and safety systems. 

Whatever your needs, the new Amarok packs a clear statement, all roads are the destination. 

Capable & ready

The wolf is back and more capable than ever. Improved torque strength makes towing heavy loads easy, while an extra-large tray leaves room for extra-large payloads. If a job needs doing, the Amarok is up to the task.


More premium than ever

Don’t let the new Amarok’s raw power lead you on; it’s also packed to the brim with a range of premium features to make every drive a comfortable one. From its spacious cabin to the high-end digital cockpit, and multiple driving assistance features, proving you don’t have to sacrifice comfort in the everyday workhorse.


Fit for your lifestyle

Choose from an extensive range of accessories that adapt your Amarok even more precisely to your individual needs. Whether it’s wheels, a tray lid or nudge bar, we have a solution to ensure the perfect fit for your vehicle.


Step into comfort and design

The new Amarok cabin offers more legroom for extra comfort, reflecting the utility vehicle’s practical design. To make life even easier, features like Keyless Access, electronic parking brake, a digital cockpit and touchscreen infotainment, make every drive a breeze. With this level of premium comfort, you won’t want your journey to end.

*Keyless access excludes Life variant


A tough exterior

The new exterior design offers accentuated differences for each of the four equipment lines. From the different radiator grilles to the newly designed styling bars, sports bar and steps, the new Amarok leaves nothing to be desired.


Robust lighting

The new Amarok is exclusively equipped with LED headlights. As a special highlight, the new Amarok Style, Amarok PanAmericana and Amarok Aventura have “IQ.Light” LED matrix headlights with dynamic headlight range. A fancy way of saying the road ahead just got a lot brighter.


More than enough room inside

Increased distance between the rows of seats offers plenty of room. Plus, look forward to more storage including an additional glove box, pockets on the backrests and more storage under the rear seats.


Digital Cockpit

Step into the stylish new Amarok interior with a modern, digitised cockpit, and get hands on with wireless mobile charging and the 12” vertical infotainment touchscreen. If that wasn’t easy enough, you can also control the infotainment system with your voice, thanks to the integrated voice control function.


Sophisticated comfort

The new Amarok range impresses with a new level of comfort. The Amarok Style includes premium Art Velours upholstery, while the Amarok Aventura & Amarok PanAmericana are covered with premium leather and heated seats for extra comfort. The driver’s dashboard and door panels also impress with an elegant leather look. To top things off, ambient lighting sets the scene, starting all journeys on a lighter note.

*Ambient lighting excluded on Life variant

Sound system

Harman Kardon

Bring your favourite music and stations to life with a premium Harman Kardon sound system. With eight high-end speakers, a subwoofer and a full 640 watts of music power, every trip is one to remember.

* Excludes Life and Style variants

Off-roading reimagined

The Amarok isn’t just another ute – it’s an off-roading champion. This pickup truck has had impressive upgrades across the body, chassis, engine, and transmission variants, from the dimensions to the increased wading depth. The improved departure angle and higher ground clearance further enhances its off-roading capability.

Increased wheelbase

The new Amarok doubles down on double-cab capability at 5,350 mm long – 96 mm longer than its predecessor. A wheelbase of 3,270 mm corresponds to an increase of 173 mm – giving you more space in the crew cab. Yet, as the wheelbase grows, body overhangs decrease. Which means an optimal approach angle and optimal off-road capability across all different driving terrains


Wading depth

Heading into uncharted territory? Get immersed in it, with a robust 800mm wading depth.

4MOTION as standard

When it comes to driving preference, choose between part time or selectable 4×4. Part time 4×4 includes three modes: 2H, 4H & 4L. Selectable 4×4 available on Amarok PanAmericana and Amarok Aventura includes four modes: 2H, 4A, 4H & 4L.

Driving modes for all terrains

When it comes to the road, the only constant is change. To keep you on track, the new Amarok offers up to six different driving modes. Depending on the model, in addition to the familiar “Normal” and “Eco” driving modes, you can also now choose ‘Slippery’ for paved roads that are covered in ice or snow, and ‘Sand’ for sand or deep snow. Mud/Ruts will help you on muddy or rutted terrain and Cargo/Trailer will of course pull its weight on the heftiest of towing jobs.

*Snow and Mud modes only available on V6 variants

A true master of all

With 3.5 tonne towing standard across the range, the Amarok is just as suited to hauling heavy loads as it is hitting the off-road tracks. Whether you’re towing the boat or the trailer, the Amarok makes difficult jobs look like child’s play.



Peak Performance

The all‑new Amarok puts the Ute in utility, proving just why this is the ultimate everyday workhorse. The new 10-speed shift-by-wire automatic transmission gives even more power on the road. New torque strengths also stand out, with an impressive 2.0L 405Nm of torque for the Amarok Life, a twin turbo 2.0L 500Nm of torque for the Amarok Style and a powerful 3.0L 600Nm of torque for the Amarok PanAmericana and Aventura range. Whatever your choice, each brings a world of power to the playing field.

* 10-speed transmission not available on Amarok Life variant.


Plenty of exterior space

The new Amarok design features an impressive loading area between the wheel arches to fit all sorts of loads, tools, equipment or material. And when items need strapping down, use the sturdy lashing rings for 400kg of pulling force to lock them in place.

Roof racks

A rooftop to be used

If the loading space wasn’t enough, 350kg of roof load capacity elevates the Amarok even further. Strap in the adventure gear, or simply pack on a rooftop tent for a night under the stars.


Safe inside and out

The new Amarok ute comes with more than 30 assistance systems, over 20 of which are completely new on-board. Discover clever innovations such as Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptative Cruise Control. Plus, you can rely on a full complement of airbags – including a centre airbag, knee airbag and standard curtain airbag – for comprehensive protection in the event of a collision.

Awarded a 5 Star ANCAP safety rating, the Amarok has your back.


Blind spots force drivers to ‘nose out’ slowly. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert uses radar technology to help look around corners, within the limits of the system. This means the system can detect passing vehicles  or pedestrians earlier.

Adaptive Cruise Control can help maintain the correct distance from the vehicle in front and start up again after a short standstill in traffic jams or city traffic. 


The Area View gives the driver an all-round view of the vehicle, which can be particularly helpful when manoeuvring or parking. Multiple views from the four cameras on all sides of the vehicle can be selected – including a 360° view of the vehicle from above.

*Amarok Aventura and Amarok PanAmericana models only

The lane departure warning combines various components and includes drowsiness detection. It can use a multifunction camera to record its own lane and, at speeds above 60 km/h, and correct unintentional lane departures by counter steering. The driver can be warned at the same time by a warning tone and a message in the multifunction display.

No matter how fast you think your reactions are, sometimes it’s easy to miss other road users. Front Assist is an autonomous emergency braking system that supports you at low and high speeds, automatically braking if a collision seems imminent.

* Within the limits of the system. The driver must be in control of the car at all times and is not relieved of his responsibility to drive the car carefully.
