We need to state that we expect more from the upgraded version of Volkswagen’s pickup. Don’t get us incorrect, the 2019 VW Amarok will still be one of the best choices in the class, but the changes that the vehicle gotten 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 present anything new for the next year, which means that the Amarok Hybrid remains just a simple 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 unit has 2 tunes. The base system isn’t really too remarkable with its 161 hp, however the more powerful variation gets remarkable 220 horse power and shocking 406 pound-feet of torque. The oil-burner is mated to a 4×4, which gets the power via an eight-speed auto transmission. Our testing has actually revealed that the pickup can accelerate from 0 to 60 in less than 8 seconds. More specifically, it does that for 7.9 seconds. Fuel economy numbers are not too bad 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 currently, the exterior styling is mostly carryover. There are some exceptions in the front, however essentially, this is pretty much the 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 brand new side steps for much easier exit and entry of the chauffeur, however 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 take place inside. The workhorse will feature a new infotainment with a larger screen. The upgraded software application will consist of App Connect and Guide & Inform. Plus, the truck gets USB connectivity and Bluetooth. Amarok’s seats will apparently be considerably better from the existing. The front-end seats will feature 14-way ergoComfort modification, fitting every existing size. Volkswagen will include a Park Pilot system, makings parking significantly easier. It includes a backup camera and the infotainment display. This way you don’t have to view anywhere except into the screen while you park the pickup.
2019 VW Amarok Price and Release Date
The 2019 VW Amarok must arrive in late 2018. The cost range will again have a similar starting point as the current version. If VW provides new up-scale and more powerful variation, it will push the cost limitation greater than on the existing top-spec model.
