Want to buy a new ute, but nothing on the market is impressing you? The arrival of the all-new Volkswagen Amarok V6 will change your mind – it's a big, aggressive ute and the engine is a feat of engineering. You only need to look at the performance figures to know this car will be a big hit.

Previously, the Volkswagen Amarok has only been offered with a four-cylinder engine – and that was still a brilliant, capable car. A bigger engine and refined tuning will put the new variant into a different class, and if you get the opportunity to drive one, you'll fall in love.

Why should you choose a V6 engine over another variant?

Larger engines in cars aren't suitable for everyone. For example, if you only drive around the city and sit in traffic a lot, you won't need the extra cylinders to produce power (they also use extra fuel). However, if you work out of the city, or do a lot of open-road driving, the larger engines can be far more economical and make the driving experience much smoother.

More cylinders generally means more power and torque – with the 165 kilowatts of power and 550 Nm of torque in the Volkswagen Amarok V6, that's exactly what you'll get. The block features an overboost function, which adds 15 kilowatts of power for up to 10 seconds when you put your foot down. If you're overtaking on a highway or climbing a steep rock face, that burst of power could make the journey much more efficient.

What's the interior like?

Volkswagen built a powerful truck to be driven off-road, and driven hard.

Volkswagen built a powerful truck to be driven off-road, and driven hard. The interior had to match, but not leave out all the creature comforts you'd normally get in a Volkswagen. With 14-way adjustable electric seats and App-Connect in the infotainment system, you won't be left wanting from the cabin of the Volkswagen Amarok V6.

For the classy off-road enthusiast, you can appoint the interior in Nappa leather as well, so don't feel restrained by your adventuring and think you can only have fabric seats!

This is one powerful truck. It'll take you wherever you want to go in style, and the all-new engine under the bonnet will impress any car enthusiast. When you put 550 Nm of torque into a ute, you'll only get good results. Make sure to head into the Peter Warren Automotive Volkswagen dealership in Sydney today to take one for a test drive.
