Volkswagen lyfter Amarok och ger den diesel-V6:a

De fyrcylindriga diesel-alternativen försvinner

Bil / Volkswagen

Skisserna på nya Amarok har nu blivit till en officiell presentation av bilen. Ansiktslyftet bjuder på nya strålkastare med bi-xenon och varselljus samt nya bakljus. Det viktigaste sitter dock under huven där man nu hittar en diesel-V6:a i tre olika utföranden. Motorn är på 3,0 liter och den går att få med 163, 204 eller 224 hästar. Den sistnämnda har ett vrid på 550 Newtonmeter. Till maskinen kopplas en sexpetad manuell växellåda eller en åttastegad automat. Förbrukningen för motorn med mest effekt anges till 0,76 liter per mil med ett utsläpp på 199 gram per kilometer. Nya Amarok går att få med antingen enbart bakhjulsdrift eller fyrhjulsdrift.

Insidan får vi tyvärr inga bilder på men där ska man ha monterat bekvämare stolar och en ny instrumentbräda.

Försäljningen drar igång i september men vad det då står på prislappen är oklart för tillfället.

Volkswagen Amarok now with a powerful six-cylinder engine

Premium pickup will be the only model in its segment with a high-performance V6 turbodiesel

Latest generation of six-cylinder engines with up to 165 kW and 550 Nm of torque

Amarok Aventura launch model to be equipped with a sports bar, 20-inch wheels, bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights

Hannover, 2 May 2016 – Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is taking things up a notch: the Amarok – the premium pickup in the B segment – is getting a bigger ‘heart’ and highlighting its performance potential, thanks to the latest generation of Volkswagen V6 engines. Drivers of the Amarok can look forward in future to the one litre of additional displacement offered by the 3.0-litre engine. The pickup boasts good on- and off-road capabilities. Its top-of-the-line engine delivers 550 Nm of torque and has an output of 165 kW / 224 PS.
Robust and reliable: the new agile V6 diesel engine for the Amarok meets the customer requirement for high torque at low engine speeds. The powerful top-of-the-line six-cylinder engine produces its maximum torque at only 1,500 rpm. At 550 Nm, this maximum torque is also 130 Nm higher than in the previous model. The Amarok is thus able to deliver sufficient propulsive power and torque performance in any situation.

The highest gears' long gear ratio in the manual or 8-speed automatic gearbox reduces revs and fuel consumption during consistently fast driving, and in this manner helps ensure low noise levels and low CO2 emissions. The combined NEDC fuel consumption of the new Amarok with 165 kW output and a 8-speed automatic gearbox will likely reach a combined diesel consumption of 7.6 litres/100 km *. This corresponds to a new top level of 199 grams CO2/km *.

The model's engine is designed to be robust and long-lasting. The 3.0 l TDI engine (with exactly 2967 cubic centimetres displacement) in the new Amarok will be available in three output levels: 120 kW / 163 PS, 150 kW / 204 PS or a top-performing 165 kW / 224 PS. All engines comply with the Euro 6 emissions standard. The most powerful engine variant will be offered first. As early as the end of September 2016, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles customers will thus be able to begin exploring the world of six-cylinder engines with an attractive model.

Three different drive-system versions will be offered in line with the respective engine variants: a traditional rear-wheel drive, and a 4MOTION version with either rear-wheel drive and an engageable front axle in combination with a manual gearbox, or with a permanent all-wheel drive system and a Torsen differential with the 8-speed automatic gearbox. The Servotronic steering system is new in the Amarok and will be available as standard equipment in Europe. This system is one of the reasons why the Amarok can be driven very precisely. New 17-inch brake discs on the front axle of the 165-kW Amarok and 16-inch discs at the rear ensure that the powerful pickup always comes to a stop quickly and safely. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, which has won multiple awards, is also included as standard.

The powerful impression the Amarok makes is underscored by a more athletic-looking front end and an all-new dashboard. Together with new ergonomic seats, they lend the vehicle a more sophisticated and valuable appearance. In addition, the model's design has the current Volkswagen DNA written all over it. With a length of 5.25 metres and a width of 2.23 metres (mirrors included), the Amarok delivers everything one would expect from a classic pickup.

The new body-coloured sports bar in the launch model (which will be marketed in Europe as the Amarok Aventura) visually shifts the double cab rearwards and also extends over a small part of the 2.52 m2 load platform inside the cargo compartment. Various additional styling bars, covers, cargo area coatings and hardtops are also available for the Amarok cargo compartment.

In addition, the load platform in the four-door Amarok can accommodate a Euro-pallet loaded sideways. A payload capacity of more than one tonne is possible, depending on the equipment features selected. In future, some variants of the new Amarok will also boast a towing capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes.

The wheels in the various equipment levels offered with the Amarok are now larger, which makes for an even more powerful and sporty appearance. The Amarok Aventura features 20-inch alloy wheels and the Park Distance Control parking assistant, which utilises a rear-view camera. The overall impression of the Aventura is made perfect by bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED licence plate lighting and LED-illuminated side sills under the doors.
