Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, it seems that the second generation of the VW Amarok has been on its way to hit the market of pickup trucks as a 2019 Volkswagen Amarok model. The last update seen on this truck happened in 2016 and ever since then the off-road fans have been waiting for some new changes and improvements.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 VW Amarok, this model is going to hit the roads as a four-door midsize pickup truck. This truck will be an excellent choice for your off-road adventures as well as working conditions. Some would probably say that the new Amarok looks pretty much identical to its predecessor. However, you will definitely notice some serious updates in terms of styling. First of all, the upcoming truck will seem more modern and attractive. Its front end will look sportier and more stylish thanks to its angular design. Here the fans will probably notice its most distinctive feature – a two-slat grille as well as its LED headlights with daytime running lights. The new Amarok will stand on 22-inch wheels and probably offer some new body paint choices. In the back part of this vehicle, you will find its massive bumper with a center step on it which will enhance the access to its bed.
The interior of the 2019 VW Amarok will definitely reveal a modern and well-equipped cabin with lots of stylish and improved features. There will be two rows of seats for up to five adult passengers. The company will also use some high-quality materials to cover the seats and in higher trim levels you can expect Nappa leather. The seats will also be heated and power-adjustable in those top trims. The driver will get a multifunctional steering wheel as well as numerous upgrades in terms of technology. For instance, you will find an information display in the instrument cluster and a 6.3-inch touch-screen with the infotainment system. It means that it will provide some of the latest high-tech features and connectivity options such as navigation system, dual-zone climate control, a six-speaker audio system, CD/MP3 player, USB ports and Bluetooth. On the other hand, airbags, ABS and parking sensors are just some of the safety systems and driver assist features that the new Amarok will offer.
It seems that the 2019 VW Amarok will come with only one engine choice under its hood. It will be a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 that will be available in two versions. A more powerful version, found in higher trim levels, should deliver the output of 225 horsepower. The new Amarok will offer either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. The truck will get a rear-wheel drive system, but an all-wheel drive will be available, too.
