As we saw recently in a few sketches and finally today it has made official the restyling of the Volkswagen Amarok 2016. The popular pick-up of the brand, which has been in the market since 2010 without just cosmetic changes, is renewed with a face wash that updates it, and puts it closer to other models in the range. Also is renewed at the mechanistic level, since it receives a new engine diesel V6 3.0-litre.
let’s Start out this Amarok unlike the previous by a front that opens bumpers and a chrome grille. At the rear the changes are less noticeable and look around riders in the rear is obscured and stickers that pray ‘4MOTION’. There will also be new designs for their tires, as well as a list of accessories up-to-date and that includes quite a few options for your box.
In the interior there will be some changes. Although we have not yet been able to see any official image, it is expected that there is a salpicadero redesigned, a center console more like the other models in the range. In the sketches if we could see that both the steering wheel as the controls of the air conditioning will be new in this Amarok. Some of the metal details give the touch of distinctiveness.
And we went to one of the major changes, the incorporation of the diesel V6 3.0-liter that replaces the previous 2.0 TDI BiTurbo four-cylinder (which we have had the opportunity to try). The new mechanism with two cylinders more will come with three power levels: 163, 204 and 224 HP. In the most powerful version of the engine torque is 550 Nm, well above the 420 Nm of the previous 2.0 TDI.
in Addition to a better performance and to conform to the Euro 6 legislation, the new Volkswagen Amarok 2016 may be chosen with two different changes. there Will be a manual and the other with eight-speed automatic. Of series will have a rear-drive powertrain configuration, but optionally you can choose the system of all-wheel drive permanent 4MOTION, that will only be available with the automatic change.
Another of the novelties that introduced this facelift is an improvement in your towing capacity. The brand claims that you can tow up to 3.5 tonnes, when currently was able to do it with 3.2 tonnes. In addition, its consumption is declining slightly, since approvals 7.6 l/100km. Of series also incorporates the new steering system Servotronic and bigger brakes. The first units of the Volkswagen Amarok 2016 will from September.
