The new 2015 Volkswagen Amarok model has been described as a rugged workhorse that provides the driver with a driving experience that is refined. The Amarok is among the most elegant pick-ups that you can buy today. The new edition of a range-toping Canyon actually promises an experience that is even more cultured.
2015 Volkswagen Amarok Engine
While many rival pick-ups like Nissan Navara come with an engine capacity of 2.5 liters or more, the 2015 Volkswagen Amarok model comes with a choice of two 2-liter 4-cylinder engines that offer a 138bhp TDI as well as 178bhp twin-turbo bi-TDI, with only the Canyon featuring the latter option. The car comes with two options for the gear box: an 8-speed automatic and a 6-speed manual. On both engines, the latter is standard; the former is optional on units that are more powerful. In addition, the 2014 VW model has a standard selectable all-wheel-drive for all models together with a system that is permanent but optional in models with BiTDI. The low-gearing feature is available in all models of Amarok.
The 2015 model also features a diff lock to add on several off-road features that include hill descent control as well as off-road ABS that allows emergency foot-stamp braking on grounds that usually you would struggle to stay on standing. This impressive car-like pick-up can tow a luggage of around 2.8 tonnes while the vehicle’s payload can be as high as 1 tonne. This makes this 2014 VW model a useful tool for those with a racing car or track-day toy and related accessories to lug from point A to point B. The 2014 Canyon has the most desirable features with it; features that include 19 inch alloy wheels, satnav, Bluetooth radio, heated leather seats as well as parking sensors. The car also has the option of a copper orange paint that is very eye catching.
Volkswagen Amarok 2015 Performance, Price and Release Date
The 2014 model of Volkswagen’s Amarok feels more like a car than a pick-up. The steering wheel is very incisive and the car handles very predictably and tidily with a strong all-round grip. Off-road, this car is amazing as it can ascent up impossible muddy banks and steeps and it maneuvers with ease.
This model offers a better European alternative to Mitsubishi L200 and Nissan Navara. This 2015 Volkswagen Amarok is already in global markets and is sold as a four-door five-seat cabin and costs from £20,720 and £24,864 with tax whereas the more styled special edition of the Canyon starts at £28,990 excluding VAT and £34,788 with tax.
