In the USA and other countries, pick-up trucks have been regarded as practical as well as quite cool for many decades. In Germany, Volkswagen was one of the pioneers for this vehicle type with the Caddy and later on with the Taro. The real lifestyle breakthrough only came in 2010, however, when the VW Amarok was introduced, based on the “Robust Pickup” study. In contrast to its predecessors, the “newbie” was definitely no longer a meek commercial vehicle but, depending on the engine version, could also show some muscle. In their home country, the USA, pick-ups cannot have enough power. So we have given the Amarok some extra horsepower: depending on the version, we coax up to 265 HP (195 kW) from the diesel engines. Visually, the Amarok is already a perfect example for its vehicle type – but a set of our 19 inch type DR alloy wheels can certainly not hurt. And upon entering, our integrated entrance lights, which project the ABT logo onto the ground, will surely delight – whether on asphalt or on a country track.
