Volkswagen Amarok V6: here’s how much it costs!

The facelifted version of the Volkswagen Amarok double-cab range has finally launched in South Africa, and we can reveal local pricing – including for the long-awaited V6 models. Three V6 turbodiesel derivatives sit at the top of the refreshed line-up, with the range-topping Extreme-badged variant coming in at R748 600 . Two other derivatives – the 4Motion AT Highline and 4Motion Auto Highline Plus – featuring the same six-cylinder powerplant are also on offer, priced at R665 700 and R716 600, respectively. All three models boast the same high-output 3,0-litre V6 turbodiesel engine, which sends a substantial 165 kW and 550 N.m to all four wheels via the Wolfsburg brand’s eight-speed automatic transmission. An overboost function bumps peak power to 180 kW and maximum torque to 580 N.m for 10 seconds from 70% throttle, in third and fourth gear from 50 km/h. After a five-second break, the function again becomes accessible. This is enough to facilitate a sprint from standstill to three figures in 8,0 seconds, and a top speed of 193 km/h. The 103 kW/340 N.m 2,0 TDI and 132 kW/420 N.m 2,0 BiTDI engines, meanwhile, have been carried over to the updated range. The detuned 150 kW version of the six-cylinder oil-burner is seemingly not on the cards for SA – for the time being, at least. The Amarok range comes standard with a three-year/100 000 km warranty and five-year/90 000 km service plan .
