NEWS - Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate on sale now; grab one while you can!

Volkswagen’s Amarok has always appealed to customers who appreciate the finer things in life. It's certainly one of the nicer looking pickups on the market at present. So, to celebrate the very best the brand has to offer, buyers can now order the most luxurious version to date - the Amarok Ultimate. Limited to only 500 vehicles, the Amarok Ultimate is an opportunity to get your hands on a rather exclusive vehicle.

The exterior design is distinguished by bi-xenon headlights, 19–inch Aragonit polished alloy wheels and double chrome strips on the radiator grille. Available for the first time on an Amarok are striking LED daytime running lights that frame the headlights and give the vehicle a unique light signature at night, as well as giving an imposing shot in the rear view mirror of other motorists.

Standard equipment also includes electrically-foldable, heated and adjustable door mirrors featuring enhanced chrome detailing. Darkened tail light lenses and a new LED number plate light complete the exclusive exterior design package.

Inside, the Amarok Ultimate continues to offer luxury, with Alcantara-trimmed seats, leather multifunction steering wheel, alloy pedal covers (automatic only), heated driver and front passenger seats and satellite navigation. A reversing parking camera is also part of the Ultimate’s standard specification list, along with rear privacy glass and Bluetooth.

The Amarok Ultimate’s sleek appearance is matched by the power that drives it. The model comes with Volkswagen’s top of the range 2.0-litre BiTDI 180PS engine, offering up to 420 Nm of torque and a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,200 kg.

Customers can choose between the six-speed manual selectable 4MOTION® or with eight-speed auto-permanent 4MOTION®.

The Amarok Ultimate is available in two colours, Reflex Silver or Deep Black – both feature ‘Ultimate’ decals on the side doors.
