We need to say that we expect more from the upgraded variation of Volkswagen’s pickup. Don’t get us wrong, the 2019 VW Amarok will still be one of the very best alternatives in the class, but the changes that the vehicle gotten are not too impressive. Aside it’s featuring some cosmetic changes inside and out, the appealing workhorse sports a new oil-chugging alternative. The carmaker has no strategy to introduce anything new for the next year, which implies that the Amarok Hybrid remains simply a mere desire and absolutely nothing else.
2019 VW Amarok Engine and Fuel Economy
The rugged mid-size pickup gets inspiration from a new and effective 3.0-liter V-6 TDI engine. The system has 2 tunes. The base system isn’t really too remarkable with its 161 hp, but the more powerful variation gets excellent 220 horse power and incredible 406 pound-feet of torque. The oil-burner is mated to a 4×4, which gets the power by means of an eight-speed automobile transmission. Our testing has actually revealed that the pickup can accelerate from 0 to 60 in less than 8 seconds. More precisely, it does that for 7.9 seconds. Fuel economy numbers are excusable at all. The 2019 Amarok will have 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 mainly carryover. There are some exceptions in the front, but essentially, this is practically the same truck we know. The carmaker will add slightly improved lights and grille in the front which’s all we get. There are brand new side steps for simpler exit and entry of the motorist, however the feature is optional only. The rear end hosts a new center step for getting the bed, along with an optional trailer hitch.
Most of the changes for the 2019 VW Amarok will take place inside. The workhorse will feature a new infotainment with a bigger screen. The updated software application will consist of App Connect and Guide & Inform. Plus, the truck gets USB connectivity and Bluetooth. Amarok’s seats will reportedly be substantially 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 significantly simpler. It includes a backup video camera and the infotainment display screen. This way you don’t need to watch anywhere except into the screen while you park the pickup truck.
2019 VW Amarok Price and Release Date
The 2019 VW Amarok must show up in late 2018. The price range will once again have a comparable starting point as the present version. If VW provides new up-scale and more potent version, it will press the price limitation greater than on the existing top-spec model.
