Volkswagen has been working hard to complete the development of the 2017 VW Amarok facelift. Debut in 2010 in Argentina, the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles division successfully produce the Amarok to be popular car. The mid-size pickup truck has been around for six years since its first release, now it is time for some refreshments.
2017 VW Amarok Exterior
The front facade of the car features eye-catching bumper design and modern grille. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan will lend its chrome front grille. The optional headlamps from the outgoing 2017 VW Amarok are carried over as standard featuring U-shaped LED daytime running lights surrounding the bi-xenon headlamps. It seems the current taillamps will also be carried over. Volkswagen Amarok Power-Pickup concept will possibly inspire its headlamps and taillamps. But we should wait a bit longer to see whether Volkswagen will update the exterior lighting.
2017 VW Amarok Interior And Release Date
It has been a long time for a refresh including the cabin. Volkswagen will introduce a new steering wheel for the 2017 VW Amarok. The infotainment system, climate control buttons, and new air vents design will be available inside. The refreshed Euro-spec pickup truck will debut at the end of 2016 and the American and global public could see the model at the early 2017. The price remains unknown but it should not have far price gap from the old model.
2017 VW Amarok Engine
There is a 2-liter TDI turbo diesel under the skin of the new model which is the same unit used in the Transporter T6. There are two states of tune, the 140 PS or 180 PS option. The engine is much more powerful than the old model but it will be more economical due to the new technology application. A manual transmission is standard on the 2017 VW Amarok while a 7-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission is optional.
