VW set to enter the pick up market
posted on Oct 08 2010 by Matt
The Volkswagen Awarok is due for launch in the UK in the second quarter of 2011 and it is VW's take on the Nissan Navara double cab pick up. Currently available in South Africa it is even giving the Toyota Hilux a serious run for its money in a territory that it has ruled for years.
The Amarok gets a classy, aggressive interpretation of the VW grille, a six-speed gearbox, low-range transfer box, permanent four-wheel drive, locking centre and rear differentials, the latest direct-injection, twin-turbo 2.0-litre diesel unit, tuned for 161bhp and 295lb ft, and traction/stability control.
VW are set to use 35 Amaroks as support vehicles to their 4race specTouareg's forDakar Rally, and a number of otehr temas are also considering them, so durability is clearly not an issue!
Pricing is yet to be released but business leasing deals are sure to be sensibly priced if the rest of the VW range is anything to go by. Keep your eyes peeled for contract hire deals from us early next year, check out our Volkswagen leasing page for latest offers on all models.
