Another new SUV. Not Chinese!

After 12 years of assembly line (a normal time for a pick-up truck), the Volkswagen Amarok has become completely different: a new generation car is being made on the same basis as the Ford Ranger.

The front and back of the car were well disguised, the relationship does not come through. But the profile reveals everything: changing the body iron, and even more so the shape of the body, is more difficult and more expensive than the “plumage” and optics.

From now on, the Volkswagen Amarok is not a unique model, but a clone of the Ford Ranger pick-up truck.

The cab front panel architecture and vertically oriented display of the media system are also common.

A few diesels, a four-in-line and a V6 3.0 offer a choice of power ratings from 150 to 250 hp. Of. Quite typical for Ford, there is also a petrol engine in the range. The EcoBoost 2.3 engine produces a whopping 302 horsepower.

The characteristics have not yet been released, but the German pickup has never had such dynamism before.

The transmission range must also be healthy: four-wheel drive, part-time or permanent, 5- and 6-speed “handles”, 6- and 10-speed automatics.

Once the crew of the new Amarok has climbed into completely wild places, you can spend the night on the roof. In a static state, it can withstand, as they say, up to 350 kg. You can set up a tent and even climb into it with four people.
