The VW Amarok is among the best and freshest one-ton pickups on the global market. Recently redesigned in late 2016, the model boasts refined and smooth V-6 turbodiesel engine combined with modern exterior and interior design. The model is also packed with modern tech and convenience features but lacks some of the active safety systems. VW upgraded model’s towing capacity to 3, 5 tons thanks to some structural upgrades for the 2018 model year but there haven’t been other powertrain or equipment changes. Luckily, the price also remains in the same range.
As for the upcoming, the 2019 VW Amarok version, reports suggesting some equipment and lineup upgrades but a new more powerful version is also possible. Additional, up-scale trim option is also reported plus VW might add some of active driver assistance systems.
