As we navigate through this challenging time, we want to be transparent about what we are doing to stay COVID-19 safe. Our Sales and Service departments remain OPEN and our team are ready to help you with all of your enquiries.
As a dealership, we have been working behind the scenes to make it easier for our customers to interact with us online. Our Customer Relations team is ready and waiting to answer all of your questions as well as send you product videos, all from the comfort of your home.
Not only have we embraced online for our customers, but we have also made big changes in the way we communicate internally between staff and departments. We have enhanced our technology and moved our processes online to minimise face-to-face contact.
We have also enforced strict hygiene procedures across every aspect of the sales and service journey.
Although we have always practised cleanliness, all of our staff have been provided additional hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to ensure their workspaces and offices are cleaned throughout the day and between each customer visit.
Customers have the option to test drive a car alone, with no staff member present.
We have implemented virtual test drives to enable our customers to learn more about the vehicle they are interested in without having to visit the dealership in person.
You can also test drive the car from your driveway - we will bring the car to you.
We are fully stocked, with all cars in the yard displaying driveaway pricing and specifications. Feel free to pop in after-hours if you're more comfortable.
We have extended our Online Enquiry team's hours to answer any questions about sales, finance, parts, and service.
We are practising social distancing.
We have introduced steering wheel and gear shifter wrapping.
Vehicle keys are being placed in plastic zip-lock bags.
Our courtesy bus has ceased operation due to social distancing regulations.
Our waiting areas are cleaned frequently and we have removed refreshments.
Our staff is wiping down reception benches including EFTPOS machines between each customer visit.
The Amarok and Amarok V6 have an inside that matches their outside, with plenty of character under the hood.
Tough, full length ladder frame chassis
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.
Ready for any adventure
Amarok's 4x4 system utilises a Torsen differential to distribute optimal power between all four wheels. The optional Selectable 4MOTION system gives you the choice of three modes: rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and four-wheel drive low range. At the touch of a button you can select the best mode for whatever the conditions may be. The intelligent 'off-road' button sets up the vehicle for off-road driving with functions including Hill Descent Control, and recalibrated ABS settings that improve performance on dirt, and reduce the stopping distance on loose surfaces.
Power is its strong suit
The tough 4-cylinder Amarok has all the grunt you need to conquer the building site or go off the beaten track. Available in manual and auto, the 2.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine generates 132kW of power and 400Nm (manual) and 420Nm (auto) of torque, making quick work of challenging terrains.
If you need even more grunt, the Amarok V6, with a 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine, delivers a thrilling 165kW of power and 180kW on Overboost. If that's still not enough, the Amarok V6 Ultimate 580 and Highline 580 Black generate an incredible 190kW of power, surging to a class-leading 200kW on Overboost. With that amount of power, very little stands in its way.
Space where it's needed most
The Amarok can pack a full size's Euro's pallet with its incredible 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 payload of up to 911kg, transporting almost anything is possible2.
The Amarok isn't just tough, it has all you would expect and more from a Volkswagen.
Hardwired for connection
Navigation has never been easier thanks to the optional Discover Media package, with a 6.5” colour display with touchscreen, 2D and 3D (bird's eye) map views, CD player with auxillary input and two SD card slots for navigation and media. Only available on Highline and Ultimate models. The Composition Media system boasts a crystal clear 6.33" colour touch screen, packed with the latest multimedia functions, including App-Connect3 and Bluetooth®. For added convenience the telephone functions can be voice activated. Available on all models.
In safe hands
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. 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.
Safety as standard
The Multi-Collision Brake system4 applies the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h when airbag sensors detect a collision, 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.
Steady the load
Trailer Stabilisation4 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.
The Amarok can handle extreme angles, gradients and slopes, providing a comfortable drive on any terrain.
Get comfortable being tough
The Amarok’s interior boasts plenty of space to stow your belongings, including storage on the dashboard, large compartments under the front seats on the Sportline and Highline, and four cup holders. The ergoComfort 14-way electric seats, available in luxury Nappa leather appointed upholstery5, ensure a comfortable drive and safe journey.
See the world at different angles
From steep slopes to rushing streams, the Amarok&apos's got it covered. It handles 45° inclines, has a maximum slope angle of 29.5° at the front and 18.0° at the rear, and can handle pools with a wading depth of 500mm. The Amarok's broad wheelbase provides enormous stability, even when driving along slopes with a 50° incline*.
