Do you remember what power feels like?
The bold, uncompromising and thrilling performance of the V6 TDI engine makes the Amarok the ultimate ute on the road, or in the bush. Now the most powerful ute in its class, the Amarok V6 sets the benchmark within the Australian ute segment.
Power to go. Power to tow.
With the 3.0 litre V6 Turbo Diesel’s Overboost feature engaged, the Amarok V6 surges to an unrivalled 180kW, making it 33kW more powerful than its nearest competitor. Throw in 550Nm of torque as standard and you know the Amarok is the match for the toughest terrain. Watch the video below to see Overboost in action.

Black is the new black.
Make a powerful impression with the new eye-catching 18 inch ‘Rawson’ anthracite alloy wheels, matte black styling bar and side steps, darkened tail lights and Dark Label decals. The dark theme continues with a matte black rear bumper, door handles and wing mirrors. And when you’re ready to light up the night, flick on the Bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and get noticed.

Hit 'em for six.
The Amarok V6 is available in Sportline, Highline and Ultimate variants – each offering 165kW as standard, surging to 180kW with Overboost.
The most powerful ute in its class
This ute is powerful. Very powerful. The latest generation 3.0l TDI V6 Engine delivers 165kW of power delivering 550Nm of torque, which lets it do the 0 to 100 dash in 7.9 seconds. Oh yeah, and it has an overboost function that delivers even more punch when you really need it. That’s an extra 15kW on top of its class-leading grunt.
The power to tow.
The most powerful ute in its class is powerful enough to handle almost anything, with a braked towing capacity of 3500kg when fitted with a genuine Volkswagen tow bar.
Stop! Amarok time
The most powerful ute in its class also boasts some class-leading stopping power. Not only does the Amarok V6 have the largest brakes in its class, it features front and rear ventilated disc brakes, which means superior braking performance and reduced chance of brake fade.
Pallets, sandbags, stones – whatever you want to transport. With a payload of up to 911kg, depending on Amarok V6 model, virtually everything is possible.
The largest tray in its class
The Amarok V6 can pack a full size ‘Euro’ pallet with its class-leading 1222mm tray. Not only is it the widest, it has four lashing eyes conveniently located around the load space. Plus, when you work late, there’s a light above the rear window to illuminate the tray. And, with a tailgate that can cope with loads up to 250kg, the Amarok V6 will take the brunt of the most extreme workloads.
Tough not rough
Details. That’s what makes the V6 more comfortable and enjoyable to drive than any ute in its class. We’ve completely redesigned the dash to include the latest multimedia musts like App-Connect2. Plus, long drives are a breeze when you and your passenger are sitting in new ergoComfort 14-way electric seats, available in luxury Nappa leather1. (14-way electric seat and Nappa leather standard on Ultimate only).
With an aggressive new front, the new Amarok V6 is every bit as rugged on the outside as it is underneath. We’ve dialed up the brawn with large alloy wheels, a sports bar and illuminated side steps on selected models. Along with Bi-Xenon headlights, daytime running lamps and chrome accents, style never takes a back seat in this ute. (Illuminated side steps available on Ultimate model only).
Full length ladder frame chassis
Hard as rails
The chassis is tough enough for whatever you throw at it – or under it. With two long chassis rails, connected by shorter rails, it consists of 7 cross sections. These cross sections offer maximum strength and rigidity optimising off-road and towing performance.
With this much oomph under the hood, it would be remiss of us not to also include a bunch of our comfort and convenience features. Plus, to help you make the most of all that unadulterated V6 power, the Amarok boasts off-road technology that makes short work of off the beaten track.
The always-on 4x4 system utilises a Torsen differential to distribute optimal power between all four wheels. With a 40:60, front to rear power distribution, the Amarok V6 shines on all road surfaces.
Rear View Camera
Whether reversing out of a busy parking lot or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes is always handy. The rear view camera displays a live picture on your screen that shows what’s behind you to make reversing safer and easier.
Climatronic air conditioning
This clever feature lets you set unique temperatures for two separate zones in your Amarok V6. Depending on the intensity of the sun's rays and the outside temperature, the air conditioning adds more or less cool air accordingly.
Approach and departure angle and wading depth
From steep hills to snaking creeks, the Amarok V6 can master extremely challenging terrain. It has an impressive approach angle of 28° and a departure angle of 23.6°, as well as a wading depth of up to 500mm. Plus, strong protection under the vehicle ensures the Amarok V6 can forge a safe path.
The off-road ABS reduces the stopping distance on loose surfaces at the press of a button. When this function is activated the braking interval is increased; the wheels lock up in a controlled manner so that material from the ground, such as gravel or sand, build up in front of each wheel, reducing the stopping distance.
The trailer stabilisation complements the electronic stabilisation program. If your trailer starts to fluctuate heavily, the system slows it down through controlled braking and reduced engine torque – steadying the trailer and increasing driving safety. Genuine Amarok wiring harness must be fitted.
When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.
Mechanical differential lock
The mechanical differential lock makes starting up in adverse, off-road conditions much easier. When the going gets tough you can rely on this standard diff-lock, which mechanically locks the rear wheels to ensure maximum traction in any condition.
Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)
Helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing understeer or oversteer. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Programme will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.
