VW is showcasing two new variations of the Amarok pickup at the Frankfurt Auto Show 2017 (IAA 2017). One of them is the VW Amarok Aventura Exclusive concept.
Finished in ‘Turmeric Yellow Metallic’, the concept car adds several visual upgrades to the double cab variant of the VW Amarok. There’s no shortage of bling thanks to the inclusion of chrome finished side sills, styling bar on the cargo box, grille, exterior mirrors and rear bumper. The concept features the roll cover system, which is a lockable and waterproof cargo bed cover. It gets an aluminium finish. As does the front underbody protection.
The headlamps are bi-xenon units along with LED daytime running lights. The pickup truck wears high-gloss polished 19-inch ‘Milford’ wheels.
In the cabin, the VW Amarok Aventura Exclusive concept gets black leather with contrast ‘Turmeric Yellow’ stitching. Features include 14-way adjustable ergoComfort seats, 3-spoke multifunction leather steering wheel with paddle shifters, ParkPilot, rear view camera, and the Discover Media navigation system. Making an appearance for the first time in the Amarok is the new black roof liner. Like the exterior, the interior too gets chrome accents.
Under the hood, the Amarok Aventura Exclusive edition gets an updated 3.0 L V6 TDI diesel with an increased power output of 258 PS as well as a higher torque output. The transmission of power takes place via an 8-speed automatic gearbox and permanent all-wheel drive. A mechanical 100 per cent differential lock aids off-road abilities of the Amarok.
