Amarok Lifestyle enhanced

Whether you are looking for a utility for work or play the Volkswagen Amarok Life can do it all.

Redesigned from the ground up in 2023, the all-new Amarok is packed full of features to get you where you need to be in comfort and style.

The next-generation Amarok Life features an all-new engine and driveline configuration to match the new interior and exterior styling, with a powerful 2-litre TDI 500 diesel engine packed under the bonnet of the utility and mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and 4MOTION driveline.

This new four-wheel drive system allows drivers to switch between rear wheel drive as well as providing selectable 4-high and 4-low gearing for when the going gets tough.

While the Amarok Life is perfect for those who love to explore the rougher terrain or hitting the job site, it is no slouch in the style and comfort department, with a bold, new design featuring stylish front and rear bumpers, LED headlights up front and an embossed tailgate with Amarok lettering giving the 2023 instalment a stunning exterior aesthetic that is uniquely Volkswagen and instantly recognisable on the road.

A host of new paint colours also feature on the redesigned exterior to add an extra touch of spice, with Bright Blue Metallic as pictured, as well as Bright Beige Metallic, Dark Grey Metallic, Deep Red Metallic, Mid Blue Metallic, Light Grey Metallic and Midnight Black Metallic along with Clear White.

With a new engine and exterior, Volkswagen also gave the interior of the Amarok an overhaul, with the new Life variant featuring a large 10.1-inch infotainment system and 8-inch digital cockpit ensuring all your vehicle vitals are clearly displayed up front.

When hitting the road in the all-new Volkswagen Amarok Life it was clear early on that a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to ensure the utility provided a smooth and precise drive with every turn of the key.

The days of heavy, slow and clunky four-wheel drives are now a thing of the past and the Amarok excelled in every aspect when cruising the streets, hitting the open road or even heading off the beaten track.

While the four-cylinder engine isn’t as punchy or powerful as it’s big brother’s V6 powerplant, it still packs a hefty 154kW of power and 500Nm of torque while maintaining a 3500kg towing capacity.

A host of airbags including knee airbags for driver and front passenger and child seat recognition, the Volkswagen Amarok Life also features autonomous emergency braking, front assist with monitoring and braking for vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, electronic stability control and electromagnetic brake booster as well as an electronic parking brake, while an on-board tyre pressure monitoring system also helps ensure tyres aren’t under or over-inflated when towing or exploring rougher terrain.

Adding to the utility’s safety features, Volkswagen adds extra peace of mind by ensuring each new Amarok sold comes with a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty and 24-hour roadside assistance for the first year of ownership as well as optional five-year care plans.

To experience the latest and greatest Volkswagen utility for yourself or explore the other variants in the Amarok range, pop down and see the Barry Maney Volkswagen team at Crouch Street North or contact the dealership on 8721 3400 to find out more information.
