MY15 Volkswagen Amarok Range

VW Amarok MY15
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has announced a raft  of changes, including two new model variants, with the market introduction of  its model year 2015 (MY15) Amarok range. Along with the new TDI420 Dual Cab 4×2  Automatic and TDI420 Single Cab 4MOTION Automatic models, the MY15 Amarok  line-up boasts enhanced specification across the newly revised and expanded  model line-up, including new highlight features such as Bi-Xenon headlights  with LED daytime driving lights, standard with the Amarok Ultimate  specification.

New  Amarok variants

The  TDI420 Dual Cab 4×2 Automatic   Utilising the Amarok’s potent 420Nm TDI diesel  power plant with an efficient 8-speed automatic, the Amarok Dual Cab is now  available in 4×2 configuration. Aimed at customers who require a robust pick-up  with no need for offroad-use, the TDI420 Dual Cab 4×2 Automatic variant  continues to offer all the hallmarks of the Amarok range: impressive fuel  economy, versatility and car-like on-road manners. The newly added Amarok  variant also receives cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity, a  multifunction steering wheel and a body coloured bumper as standard.

TDI420  Single Cab 4MOTION Automatic   The Amarok Single Cab is now also available with an  8-speed automatic transmission and a 420TDI diesel engine, while utilising  Volkswagen’s 4MOTION permanent four-wheel-drive system. Standard features in  the TDI420 Single Cab 4MOTION Automatic include cruise control and Bluetooth  connectivity, a multifunction steering wheel and a body coloured front bumper. The  Amarok TDI420 Single Cab 4MOTION is available in both cab chassis and ute body  configurations.

Specification  lines   All models within the Amarok MY15 range receive a  number of updates in terms of equipment and features.

Amarok  Core Edition   The MY15 Dual Cab Amarok entry model, now named Amarok  “Core Edition”, continues to be available in both TDI400 and TDI420 engine  specifications with 4MOTION and with manual or automatic transmissions. MY15  Updated Amarok Core Edition models also feature body-coloured bumpers, 16-inch ‘Korama’  alloy wheels and Pirelli Scorpion ATR tyres as standard.

Amarok  Trendline   All MY15 Trendline vehicles now include standard  front and rear Park Distance Control and 17-inch alloy wheels. Customers also  get a choice of three new options to further enhance their Trendline Amaroks:  RNS315 satellite navigation, rear view camera, and lumbar support for the  driver and front passenger seats.

Amarok  Highline   Already benefiting from the existing and new  features of the Core and Trendline models, the MY15 Highline specification has  also been increased, with standard rear view camera, Light and Sight (rain  sensor wipers and automatic headlamps), and lumbar support for driver and  passenger seats. Customers can further customise their Amarok Highline with optional  Bi-Xenon headlights.

Amarok  Ultimate   The pinnacle of the mainstream Amarok range, the  Ultimate model receives the comfort and convenience systems of previous  specification lines, including leather interior trim and 19-inch alloy wheels,  as additional standard features. Further benefiting from the MY15 update,  Amarok Ultimate models now also receive Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime  running lights.
