We took the new Volkswagen Amarok to the Lake District and challenged two teams with a series of missions designed to put it (and them) to the ultimate test, to prove who is a true Amarok Trailblazer.

100% pickup. 100% premium. Uncompromising off road. Spirited on the asphalt. The new Amarok combines everything that you expect from a premium and exclusive all rounder.
Motorists seeking an enthusiastic pick-up will appreciate the bold style and impressive capability of the Volkswagen Amarok. It has a class-leading amount of space - more than a metre’s distance between the rear wheel arches - and offers exceptional performance on both business and personal journeys.
In looks, the Amarok has the solid and rugged appearance of a city-friendly SUV. Smart paintwork choices are offset by sparkling chrome accents, and at higher trims you can choose sturdy 19-inch alloy wheels. There’s even a built-in step at the rear bumper to help you access and load the cargo bay.
Depending on the trim level you select, you’ll find either soft cloth or leather upholstery and full carpet or rubber flooring in the cabin. The pick-up is also prepared to optionally contain a tachograph if you’re using it for work. Bluetooth on a multifunction display can be selected as an extra for drivers who need to communicate whilst they’re on the move.
Powered by one of the manufacturer’s stunning 2.0-litre diesel power systems, the Amarok can effortlessly tow as much as three tonnes of braked weight. It can run with a manual or automatic gearbox if you’d prefer, and no version of the model takes more than 14 seconds to reach motorway speeds.
Whether you’re on a longer journey or making some quick city deliveries, a wide range of technologies and systems is included as standard to protect you. Volkswagen is well known for advanced safety, and the Amarok comes with plenty of surrounding airbags and driver support systems. A 30cm ground clearance and half-metre wading limit keep you safe from rocks, rougher ground and larger bodies of water in the road.
