Article by Christian Andrei, on September 22, 2010

Volkswagen revealed today the 2011 Amarok Single Cab, a new version of its pickup truck featuring a single cabin. As expected, the removal of the rear seats increases the load capacity from 1555 mm to 2205 mm, bringing a total area of 3.57 square meters. Just like the four-door version, the single cab version will offer the same engines: a 2.0 TDI with common rail injection engine, which develops 163 PS and 400 Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm; the other engine choice is in fact the same version of the 2.0-liter diesel engine, but detuned to122 PS.

The car is available in both two-wheel and four-wheel drive (4Motion).

Furthermore, the Amarok will be offered in a choice of three trim levels: Base, Trendline and Highline. The Base level offers manual operated windows, unpainted door handles, mirrors and front bumper, and 16-inch steel wheels.

The Trendline offers front bumper, door handles and mirrors in body colour, audio CD player, climate control (Climatic), multi-functional display, cruise control system and front fog lights. The Highline, offers part-chrome mirror housings, Climatronic, leather detailing, high end sound system and fabric seat covers. Refargind safety, the car features ABS, ASR, electronic differential lock and ESP with Hill Descent Assist.

Exterior Design

Volkswagen’s new Design DNA is clearly and deeply manifested by its new pickup offering, the 2011 Volkswagen Amarok. Truly, VW's design genes can be seen in the harmonious interplay of body surfaces and focus on horizontal lines as well as high precision of details and workmanship.

For instance, the 2011 Amarok features a visual unit formed by its horizontal headlights and radiator grille, as well as decorative trim accents. Likewise, the Amarok features a surface that develops over the fender contour developing side windows and extending back from its front face.

Meanwhile, the Amarok's side body panels and engine hood feature curves that endow it with a rugged appearance. Moving to the posterior part of this pickup, easily noticeable is the Volkswagen logo mounted on the smooth tailgate and framed by its taillights that dons the signature night design.

All of these high quality features complement each other and combine to exude a high-class appearance and quality – making the 2011 VW Amarok a pickup that stands out from the rest in the segment. For those interested in acquiring the 2011 VW Amaro, it would help to know that it will be available initially as a Double Cab with a four-door body that could comfortably seat five adults.

For customers looking for a more functional Amarok, they could opt for the two-door Single Cab variant that features a longer truck bed. This variant, however, will be available starting in the first half of 2011.
