Another product from automobile giant Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is VW Amarok, the entry pickup model for this brand. It was introduced in 2010 and depending on the market it is available in single cab and double cab configurations. Like all VW’s vehicles, the Amarok features good build quality but also slightly higher prices than some rival models. The model offers two diesel engine options and while it lags behind some rivals on capacity it wins in terms of power and fuel economy. It comes in rear wheels drive configuration but it also offers selectable or permanent four-wheel drive models which are more suitable for those who want this model as working truck or need enhanced off-road ability.
Some Amarok models are available with Bluemotion technology which promises improved fuel efficiency. On the other hand, this pickup truck is one of the largest vehicles in its class and offers one off the widest cargo beds. Where this model is also in the top end among the rivals is ride quality where its handling and comfort can be compared with more passenger oriented vehicles. The model also offers wide range of models which covers everything from base work truck versions to well-equipped dual cabs. The 2016 VW Amarok is faced with rivals like Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi L200 and others.
