100% pickup. 100% premium.

Uncompromising off road. Spirited on it. The multiple award-winning Amarok picked up another trophy for What Car? Pick-up of the Year for 2019. Back-to-back tests against class rivals and assessments of running costs, practicality and equipment levels were all factored into the expert What Car? verdict. Whatever your cargo, wherever you go, you can count on the Amarok to deliver.

Built for maximum driving pleasure

Gravel, tarmac, earth. In the Amarok you'll experience the pinnacle of driving comfort on almost any terrain. It combines high ground clearance and excellent body stability with proven 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The result: traction in virtually every situation, even with heavy payloads.


45° climbing ability. 50° side angle

Make a molehill out of a mountain

The Amarok’s wide wheelbase and increased ground clearance mean it can handle even extreme angles, gradients and slopes. So you can confidently tackle even the steepest terrain.

Reinforced leaf springs

Because hard work deserves a comfortable ride

With 3+2 leaf springs as standard, you can rest assured that you'll have a comfortable ride even with payloads of up to 1,154kg.

Off-road, Hill Descent Assist and underride guard

Take the rough with the smooth

The outstanding off-road ABS as well as the Hill Descent Assist ensure high levels of safety across all terrains. Optional robust underride guard package protects the fuel tank against stones and branches on the ground.

4MOTION all-wheel drive

Unique drive technology

The Amarok offers premium driving comfort, even under the toughest of conditions. This is thanks to the perfect harmony created between the running gear and drive calibration – combined with the proven and tested 4MOTION all-wheel drive which packs a punch when you need it most. The outstanding off-road ABS function also helps to reduce braking distances on loose terrain.

Load platform and load compartment

The widest load platform in its class

No other pick-up provides so much space between the wheel arches. The loading width of 1,222 mm even enables Euro pallets to be loaded crosswise. The spacious, 2.52m² cargo box features some impressive dimensions – such as the 508 mm high side panels and the low loading sill height of 780 mm.

8-speed automatic gearbox

Highly efficient

The Amarok is the only pickup in its class with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. While first gear has been specially optimised for pulling off when towing a trailer, eighth gear reduces fuel consumption through low-speed driving on long journeys . Equally unique: the option to combine the gearbox with the permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive.

6-speed manual gearbox

On Trendline models

The Amarok Trendline is now available with a 6-speed manual gearbox in combination with the 163PS and the 204PS engines. The new model features standard rear-wheel drive and comes with a selectable all-wheel drive which activates at the touch of a button.
