Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is introducing a special edition version of its much-talked Amarok pick-up.  Dubbed as the Amarok edition, it is based on the Trendline specification but with over £3,400 of additional equipment, providing savings of over £2,000. The Amarok edition boasts of body-colored bumpers and wheel arches that are already available in the Trendline specification, as well as 18-inch Durban alloy wheels, black styling bars across the load area, a black side step, special edition decals and rear privacy glass.

The Amarok edition also features as standard front and rear parking sensors as well as Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation with a five-inch color touchscreen. Also coming as standard are a protective coating for the load area and interior floor mats.

The Amarok edition is powered by the range-topping 2.0-litre BiTDI 180 PS engine that provides up to 420 Nm of torque and a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,200 kg.

Customers can opt for the six-speed manual transmission that feature with selectable 4MOTION, or the latest eight-speed automatic transmission with permanent 4MOTION.  The automatic version features the fuel-saving BlueMotion Technology, which includes low rolling-resistance tires, start/stop system and regenerative braking.

The Amarok edition could be availed in two colors: Reflex Silver with black door mirror covers, or Deep Black with silver door mirrors. The Amarok edition has starting price of £22,495 (excluding VAT) for the manual transmission and to £24,225 (excluding VAT) for the automatic transmission.  The Amarok edition will be rolled out in July, with 300 units available to customers in the United Kingdom.

‘Creating the right image is very important for a lot of our customers, so we’ve had great pleasure creating the bespoke specification for the Amarok edition,’ said Mark Hopkins, head of marketing for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.  ‘It not only looks great, but offers fantastic value too,’ he continued.
