Volkswagen Amarok 2010

Recommended Posts

Messaggio Aggiornato al 24/10/2014














Press Release 2013 :

NEW AMAROK 180 PS WITH BLUEMOTION TECHNOLOGY AND AUTO TRANSMISSIONThe Amarok is now even more powerful and economical, thanks to a power upgrade for the 163 PS BiTDI engine to 180 PS, and the introduction of BlueMotion Technology models to offer improved efficiency. In addition, towing limits have increased from 2,800 kg to 3,000 kg for manual models, while a new eight-speed automatic transmission has been introduced and has a higher towing limit of 3,200 kg.

To improve supply and availability, Amarok models for the UK and the rest of Europe are now being produced in the same factory as the Transporter in Hanover, Germany. At the same time, new features introduced include: Bluetooth, front and rear parking sensors, heated washer jets, tachograph preparation, cornering fog lights and 19-inch alloy wheels.

BlueMotion Technology improves fuel economy and lowers emissions by using low rolling resistance tyres, Stop/Start and regenerative braking. This means that although the 180 PS BlueMotion Technology is over 10 per cent more powerful than the previous 163 PS model, it is 3.9 per cent more economical, with a combined fuel economy of 37.2 mpg compared to 35.8 mpg. Better still, emissions drop by 10 g/km to 199 g/km.

Torque for the eight-speed automatic transmission increases from 400 to 420 Nm, delivered at 1,750 rpm. It is available exclusively as a Highline model with BlueMotion Technology and permanent 4MOTION for a retail price of £25,105 (plus VAT). It achieves combined fuel economy of 35.3 mpg with emissions of 211 g/km – the same as the standard manual model.

The new 180 PS BiTDI engine is available with a six-speed manual transmission in Startline, Trendline and Highline trim levels and selectable 4MOTION all-wheel drive with retail prices from £19,795 (plus VAT). The 2.0-litre TDI 122 PS engine is still available in the Startline range from £18,795 (plus VAT).

‘The new 180 PS engine and automatic transmission make the Amarok even more refined, plus with BlueMotion Technology also now available, it can offer more efficiency, too,’ said Alex Smith, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

‘The Amaroks from Germany are now arriving in Van Centre showrooms, with demonstrators available for test drives,’ he continued.


Press Release :

  • [*=left]Amarok sets new standards in 1-tonne pick-up class
    [*=left]Fuel-efficient TDI engines and three drive concepts
    [*=left]Active and passive safety at the highest level
    [*=left]Production and market launch in South America; Europe to follow in 2010

Hannover, December 1, 2009 – With the Amarok, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is now also entering the segment of mid-range pick-ups, representing an annual market volume of two million vehicles worldwide. The Amarok is not only the fourth model series of the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand, it is also the first 1-tonne class pick-up to be developed in Germany. The new model unifies the robustness demanded of a pick-up with innovative technology, high safety standards and top values in fuel efficiency, comfort and ergonomics. Production is about ready to begin at our “Pacheco” plant in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The Amarok is launching worldwide in a four-door version with “double cab” – a “single cab” will debut in the first half of 2011. Conceptually and stylistically, the Amarok – up to 5.25 meter long – is a pick-up that looks like it came right out of the pages of a stylish copybook. Its body, set upon a ladder frame, clearly reflects properties of the new Volkswagen design DNA. As usual, the emphasis here is on horizontal lines, a clear interplay of surfaces and precision.

Unifying the horizontal headlights and grille into a single design element is a characteristic of the Volkswagen face for the new era. The louvres and decorative trim of the radiator grille are styled with a distinctive love for details. Extending back from the front face is a surface that develops over the fender contour to the side windows and encloses them in an arch. The defined curvatures of the side panels and engine bonnet lend the sculpted Amarok a truck-like stability supported by amply sized wheel housings.

Finally, the VW logo crowns the smooth surface of the tailgate, framed by rear lights whose distinctive signature is a characteristic night design. Even in the styling of the bumper and its form fit to the truck body, the high standards of its designers show through, and this sets the Amarok apart from the competitive field as a genuine Volkswagen with quality and precision.

Cultivated, powerful and efficient:

Robust TDI engines with innovative technology

For the powertrain, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has chosen two reliable, fuel-efficient and clean high-tech turbo-diesels for the pick-up’s market launch. The 120 kW / 163 PS strong 2.0 TDI with common rail injection has two-stage bi-turbo turbocharging, which generates a torque of 400 Newton-meters at a low 1,500 rpm. Another four-cylinder TDI with 90 kW / 122 PS will follow as a second engine variant in mid-2010. It has a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry and develops a maximum torque of 340 Newton-meters from 2,000 rpm. Both engines are paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.

In addition to their agile responsiveness, the two engines dazzle with their extremely low – and for the entire market segment pioneering – fuel consumption values. Take the Amarok with switchable all-wheel drive as an example. Even in this 4x4 version, the 122-PS TDI consumes just 7.6 litres per 100 kilometres (equivalent to 199 g/km CO2). In the case of the 163-PS TDI, fuel consumption is also very economical at 7.8 litres (206 g/km CO2). This is the first time an all-wheel drive vehicle has been offered in this class whose CO2 emissions are less than 200 grams. Thanks to its 80-litre tank, the pick-up is also capable of ranges of over 1,000 kilometres! All Amarok pick-ups are equipped with an upshift indicator as well to assist drivers in attaining an economical mode of driving.

Three drive variants:

Dynamic and safe on all roads

For power transfer, three different drive concepts are offered – each tailored for a specific market: full-time all-wheel drive, switchable all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive. In the base version, the Amarok has rear-wheel drive. This version is intended for customers who mainly chose the pick-up for its body form and its versatility.

The two all-wheel drive variants are right at home on all terrains. The ideal choice for journeys up hill and down dale is the Amarok 4MOTION with switchable all-wheel drive and a red “4” in its signature. Making its appearance with full-time all-wheel drive and greater comfort is the Amarok 4MOTION with a black “4”. It exhibits the same vehicle dynamics advantages offered by all-wheel drive, but for paved roads.

The Amarok with switchable all-wheel drive uses a positive clutch that is practice proven in the pick-up segment. When engaged by the push of a button, it produces rigid power transfer between the axles. For the most difficult jobs, low off-road gearing is also provided, making it easy to take on complicated off-road passages; the truck can even conquer 100 percent gradients with full cargo loading. The progressively tuned heavy-duty spring pack guarantees a high overload safety factor with its three main and two auxiliary spring plates.

The full-time all-wheel drive version is a rarity in its class. The Torsen differential distributes drive forces at a 40:60 ratio to the front and rear axles, and this simultaneously assures both excellent vehicle dynamics and high traction. In addition, selective braking interventions in tough terrain ensure that the wheel with the best traction always gets the most engine power. This drive concept is paired with a chassis that was specially tuned for comfort.

An optional rear differential lock is available for all drive types.

From utility truck to lifestyle pick-up:

Three equipment lines for a wide range of demands

Three equipment lines are available on the Amarok. The base version relies on purely mechanical and extremely robust components – with manual operation of the windows, door locks and mirror adjustment. The front bumper, door handles and mirrors are not painted, making them ideal for heavy duty use. The base version stands on standard 16-inch steel. Other standard features: height-adjustable front seats, variable folding rear bench seat, locking glove compartment and cargo platform lighting. A special feature: antennas integrated in the outside mirrors.

One grade more luxurious is the Amarok Trendline. On this version, the front bumper, door handles and mirror housings are painted in body colour. Window lifts, door locking and mirror adjustment are all electrically operated. In addition, a radio with CD player, climate control (Climatic), multi-functional display, cruise control system and front fog lights are all standard equipment. 16-inch aluminium wheels underscore the truck’s strong appearance.

The exclusive Amarok Highline is equipped for enhanced comfort. Building on the Trendline equipment line, the Highline is upgraded by features such as part-chrome mirror housings, various chrome accents outside and inside the vehicle and fender skirt extensions in body colour that create space for 17-inch aluminium wheels. In addition, the top equipment line is characterised by a colour contrasting instrument panel ? depending on vehicle configuration ?, automatic climate control (Climatronic), leather detailing, an even higher end sound system and elegant fabric seat covers.

Besides this wide range of features, an extensive accessories programme is also offered for the Amarok – from a styling bar to running boards, cargo cover and Multi-Connect load securing system (standard from Trendline) and a selection of alloy wheels.

Lots of space for occupants and cargo:

Generously sized interior and widest load space in its class

Interior: The large and ergonomically designed interior, the largest in its class, bears a close resemblance to other Volkswagen models. Easy entry, generous space and lots of headroom characterise the “workplace” behind the steering wheel. These properties and ample legroom for passengers on the rear bench make the Amarok a full-fledged five-seater. When just two persons are aboard, interior storage space can be increased by folding the tall rear seat.

Exterior: The Amarok’s cargo area delivers the largest dimensions of its class. On a truck bed height of just 525 millimetres, the cargo area measures 2.52 square meters (1,555 millimetre length, 1,620 millimetre width). But that is not all: Also “Best in class” is the 1,222 millimetre width between wheel wells. For the first time on a mid-size pick-up, it is possible to load Euro pallets sideways, saving on space. Thanks to its large dimensions and a payload capacity of up to 1.15 tonnes, sports equipment like quads and bulky machinery can also be transported. Four tie-down eyes in the corners of the truck bed protect cargo during the drive. In addition, the (optional) “hitch” can handle up to 2.8 tonnes trailer load.

Four airbags, ESP, ASR, ABS and assistance systems:

The Amarok sets standards in its class for safety

Naturally, the Amarok has height-adjustable head restraints and seatbelts at all five of its seating positions. The belts on the front seats are equipped with belt tensioners and are coupled to a visual and acoustic belt warning system. Side curtain airbags for head protection are also available for the driver and front passenger. ABS and ASR are standard features on the Amarok as is the electronic differential lock (EDL). Another standard feature activated by pushbutton is Off-Road ABS, which significantly shortens braking distances on off-road trails and gravel roads. If the optional ESP system is installed, when Offroad-ABS is enabled at vehicle speeds under 30 km/h this also activates Hill Descent Assist. It keeps driving speed constant by selective braking interventions, enabling safe and controlled hill descents. For the first time in this vehicle class, when driving under 30 km/h the driver can individually set the driving speed for the given descent conditions by braking and accelerating.

Furthermore, all vehicles are equipped with ESP plus Hill Hold Assist, which holds the vehicle in place while driving uphill until the driver presses the accelerator pedal enough to prevent rolling back.

Launch in South America; to be followed by Australia and South Africa as well as Europe

Key markets for the Amarok are South America, South Africa and Australia; in these markets pick-ups are some of the most sought after recreational and commercial vehicles, because of their versatility. Thanks to its efficient drive technology and tremendous versatility, the Amarok is also expected to be a trendsetter in the contemporary pick-up class in Europe. Its market launch in South America is scheduled for early 2010, and Europe will follow in the second half of 2010.

Che bel lavoro! Davvero carino, anzi, il più carino oserei dire.

Riesce a mantenere il family feeling nonostante la tipologia di veicolo sia a dir poco ostica...

Da eliminare il roll bar cromato.

La teoria è quando si conosce il funzionamento di qualcosa ma quel qualcosa non funziona.

La pratica è quando tutto funziona ma non si sa come.

Spesso si finisce con il coniugare la teoria con la pratica: non funziona niente e non si sa il perché.

The world can now rest easy. Toyota has officially embraced "Prii" as the plural of Prius.

Toyota-based come il Taro di quasi vent'anni fa o è tutta roba made in VW? :shock:

Bel veicolo, comunque!

Ben presto le regine del segmento - ovvero Nissan Navara e Mitsubishi L200 - non saranno più sole, dovendo spartire il palcoscenico con il nuovo pick-up della Casa tedesca, il Volkswagen Amarok. Il debutto ufficiale in Italia è previsto per l'autunno del prossimo anno, mentre la commercializzazione partirà entro gennaio 2011, anche se sarà possibile ammirarla già dal 1 al 17 gennaio 2010 anno come veicolo di supporto della mitica Dakar Rally 2010.


Assemblato in Argentina, l'Amarok (Lupo in lingua eschimese) rappresenta la sfida di Volkswagen ai pickup giapponesi, creatori di una nicchia di veicoli da lavoro virili e affascinanti al punto giusto da ben figurare anche nelle vie del centro, ideali insomma per spostarsi con disinvoltura dal cantiere di lavoro all'aperitivo di fine giornata, un segmento interessante in cui la Casa di Wolfsburg si lancia per la prima volta (il Volkswagen Taro del 1989 era realizzato su la base della Toyota Hilux).


Le forme squadrate e muscolose che lo caratterizzano derivano dal Volkswagen Pickup Concept, mentre la plancia risulta più convenzionale e ispirata ad alcuni modelli del costruttore teutonico. Il corpo vettura è dotato di doppia cabina che può ospitare fino a cinque persone, misura 5,25 metri e mette a disposizione un piano di carico pari a 2,52 metri quadri, capace di caricare fino a 1150 kg. In termini pratici significa che L'Amarok può essere utilizzato sia come mezzo da lavoro, perchè in grado di trasportare oggetti lunghi, ingombranti e pesanti come travi, blocchi di cemento e macchinari, oppure potrà essere un ottimo compagno di "svago" in grado di trasportare un quad di grossa cilindrata, delle tavole da surf o qualunque tipo di attrezzatura utile al nostro tempo libero.

DA 122 a 166 CV

L'Amarok sarà disponibile, almeno in un primo momento, con il collaudato 2.0 litri biturbodiesel doppiostadio da 166 CV e 400 Nm di coppia massima disponibile già da 1.500 giri/min, in seguito questa unità verrà affiancata da un altro due litri con turbo a geometria variabile da 122 CV e 340 Nm di coppia a 2.000 giri/min. Tutti e due i propulsori sono accoppiati ad un cambio a sei rapporti con riduttore delle marce di serie. Nonostante la buona potenza specifica e il peso non certo contenuto promette buoni consumi ed emissioni inquinanti ridotte, il costruttore infatti dichiara per la versione 4MOTION da 122 CV 7,6 litri ogni 100 chilometri percorsi (equivalenti a 199 g/km di CO2 emessi nell'aria). Nel caso del TDI da 166 CV, il consumo di carburante è pari a 7,8 litri, mentre le emissioni inquinanti sono 206 g/km di CO2 nell'ambiente. il serbatoio da 80 litri unito a consumi contenuti promette un'ottima autonomia pari a 1.000 km, inoltre l'economo pick-up ha in dotazione anche il sistema di "up-shift" che suggerisce i tempi di cambiata per ridurre ulteriormente i consumi.


A seconda delle proprie esigenze, l'Amarok può essere scelto con la sola trazione posteriore, oppure con quella integrale inseribile "4MOTION", in caso di bisogno infatti con la semplice pressione di un pulsante, si può passare dalle due ruote motrici posteriori alle quattro ruote motrici, dotate di un differenziale Torsen che distribuisce la potenza con un rapporto 40:60 tra l'asse anteriore e quello posteriore, assicurando nello stesso tempo sia un'ottima dinamica del veicolo che una trazione elevata in qualsiasi condizione, inoltre a richiesta si può scegliere il bloccaggio del differenziale posteriore. Nella lunga lista degli optional è disponibile anche l'innovativo ESP Plus Hill Hold Assist, un sistema elettronico che funzione in concomitanza con il controllo di trazione e permette discese particolarmente ripide, controllate e sicure, a velocità costante, mentre durante le salite con alta pendenza evita l'arretramento del mezzo.


Tre gli allestimenti disponibili con un crescente livello di dotazioni, si parte dalla versione base studiata prevalentemente per un uso lavorativo con accessori di serie ridotti all'osso, paraurti, maniglie delle portiere e specchietti retrovisori non verniciati, ideali quindi per un impiego gravoso. L'allestimento intermedio è il Trendline, su questa versione troviamo tutti i comfort necessari come il climatizzatore manuale, i vetri e gli specchietti elettrici, cerchi in alluminio da 16 pollici e i particolari esterni in tinta. La versione top è quella Highline che offre davvero tutto di serie, trasformando così la Amarok in un vero e proprio veicolo "modaiolo", infatti alla dotazione della Trendline si aggiungono i cerchi in lega da 17 pollici, il climatizzatore automatico "climatronic", rifiniture in pelle, specchietti cromati e molto altro.
