Volkswagen Amarok gets manual labour | New Release - Car News Nov 2017


12:53 Wednesday 22 Nov 2017

A manual gearbox option has been added to the Volkswagen Amarok pick-up range.

The manual gearbox is available with the 201bhp engine, forming a new-entry level model priced at £25,600 excluding VAT.

The previous entry-level model, with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive, came in at £650 more, so the new model in Trendline trim with six-speed manual gearbox and selectable all-wheel drive broadens the appeal of the pick up further. The manual gearbox with its additional off-road gear reduction function permits extreme crawling pace, helpful when off-roading and scaling particularly steep inclines of up to 45° of slope angle.

Powered by a new 3.0-litre V6 engine, the new model returns a combined fuel economy of 32.5 mpg and CO2 emissions of 229 g/km, while 0-62 mph takes 8.4 seconds. It has a GVW of 3,200 kg, braked trailer weight of 3,000 kg, and a payload of 1,050 kg.

The new manual version is available to order from Volkswagen Van Centres now, with first customer deliveries expected in February 2018.
