We need to say that we anticipate more from the upgraded variation of Volkswagen’s pickup truck. Don’t get us wrong, the 2019 VW Amarok will still be among the very best alternatives in the class, but the changes that the vehicle received are not too remarkable. Aside it’s including some cosmetic changes inside and out, the appealing workhorse sports a new oil-chugging option. The carmaker has no plan to introduce anything new for the next year, which indicates that the Amarok Hybrid remains just a mere desire and nothing else.
2019 VW Amarok Engine and Fuel Economy
The rugged mid-size pickup truck gets inspiration from a new and effective 3.0-liter V-6 TDI engine. The system has two tunes. The base unit isn’t really too impressive with its 161 hp, but the more potent variation gets excellent 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 car 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 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 said already, the exterior styling is mainly carryover. There are some exceptions in the front, but essentially, this is practically the very same truck we understand. The carmaker will include somewhat reshaped lights and grille in the front which’s all we get. There are brand new side actions for easier exit and entry of the driver, but the feature is optional just. The rear end hosts a new center action for getting the bed, along with an optional trailer hitch.
The majority 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 include App Connect and Guide & Inform. Plus, the truck gets USB connectivity and Bluetooth. Amarok’s seats will supposedly be substantially much better from the existing. The front-end seats will feature 14-way ergoComfort change, fitting every existing size. Volkswagen will include a Park Pilot system, makings parking substantially easier. It includes a backup camera and the infotainment display screen. In this manner 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 should arrive in late 2018. The cost range will again have a comparable starting point as the present version. If VW uses new up-scale and more powerful version, it will press the price limit greater than on the current top-spec model.
