    The wolf is back – and better than ever. 

    Welcome to the all-new, mighty 2023 Volkswagen Amarok. The new generation Volkswagen Ute landing in New Zealand in May 2023.

    The 4MOTION 4WD Ute will be available in four variants priced from $65,000 MRP plus on-road costs, with engine sizes ranging from a 125kW 2.0L to a 184kW 3.0L.

    Truly the master of versatility, the Volkswagen Amarok is a class-leading ute that ticks all standard ute boxes and then some. With impressive capability and dynamic, sharp looks, whatever your requirements are, the Amarok meets them effortlessly.

    The new Amarok presents itself with powerful contours in a completely revised Volkswagen commercial vehicle design. With a longer wheelbase that provides an increased approach angle for improved off-road driving. The Amarok comes with numerous highlights, such as modern “IQ.Light” LED matrix headlights*, embossed tailgate, with newly designed styling bars and steps.

    A journey you won’t want to end

    The new Amarok provides an all-wheel drive experience like you’ve never had before. Ten centimetres longer than its predecessor, with an expanded wheelbase, the All-New Amarok cabin offers more legroom – and extra comfort.  Inclusions such as multi-function steering wheel, Keyless Access* and electronic parking brake make every drive a breeze.

    At home off-road

    Doubling down on double-cab capacity at 5,350 mm long, the new Amarok is 96 mm longer than its predecessor. A wheelbase of 3,270 mm corresponds to an increase of 173 mm – meaning more space in the crew cab. However, as wheelbase grows, body overhand decreases, meaning hello approach angle, hello better off-road capability across different terrains. Choose your drive preference from selected AWD and permanent AWD. Everything about the new Amarok is designed to maximise off-roading capability –  from the refined body, chassis, and dimensions to the significantly greater wading depth.

    Putting the Ute in utility

    Refinement and comfort need no sacrifice for the everyday workhorse. With a range of 2.0 to 3.0 litre diesel engines available (including a powerful V6), the Amarok is suited to hauling heavy loads and hitting off-road tracks. Tackle any payload or task with confidence thanks to a 3.5-tonne braked towing capacity, standard across the range.
