We need to state that we expect more from the upgraded variation of Volkswagen’s pickup truck. Do not get us incorrect, the 2019 VW Amarok will still be one of the very best alternatives in the class, but the changes that the vehicle received are not too excellent. Aside it’s featuring some cosmetic changes inside and out, the appealing workhorse sports a new oil-chugging alternative. The carmaker has no plan to introduce anything new for the next year, which implies that the Amarok Hybrid stays simply a simple dream and nothing else.
2019 VW Amarok Engine and Fuel Economy
The rugged mid-size pickup truck gets inspiration from a new and powerful 3.0-liter V-6 TDI engine. The unit has two tunes. The base unit isn’t too impressive with its 161 hp, but the more powerful version gets outstanding 220 horse power and incredible 406 pound-feet of torque. The oil-burner is mated to a four-wheel drive, which gets the power through an eight-speed automobile transmission. Our testing has actually shown that the pickup can accelerate from 0 to 60 in less than 8 seconds. More exactly, it does that for 7.9 seconds. Fuel economy numbers are excusable at all. The 2019 Amarok will need to have 9 liters in its tank in order to cross 100 kilometers in combined driving.
2019 VW Amarok Exterior and Interior
Like we stated already, the exterior styling is largely carryover. There are some exceptions in the front, but generally, this is pretty much the exact same truck we know. The carmaker will add a little reshaped lights and grille in the front and that’s all we get. There are all-new side steps for simpler exit and entry of the chauffeur, but the feature is optional just. The rear end hosts a new center action for getting the bed, along with an optional trailer hitch.
Most of the changes for the 2019 VW Amarok will occur inside. The workhorse will feature a new infotainment with a bigger screen. The upgraded software will consist of App Connect and Guide & Inform. Plus, the truck gets USB connectivity and Bluetooth. Amarok’s seats will reportedly be considerably much better from the existing. The front-end seats will feature 14-way ergoComfort adjustment, fitting every existing size. Volkswagen will add a Park Pilot system, makings parking considerably much easier. It consists of a backup cam and the infotainment screen. This way you do not have to view anywhere except into the screen while you park the pickup.
2019 VW Amarok Price and Release Date
The 2019 VW Amarok need to show up in late 2018. The price range will again have a similar beginning point as the current variation. If VW offers new up-scale and more potent version, it will press the cost limit higher than on the current top-spec model.
