2023 Volkswagen Amarok | Returns In Fresh Teasers, V6 TDI Confirmed

2023 Volkswagen Amarok – Ford and Volkswagen have a partnership which means that there’s not much to guess about next-generation Amarok. This is especially true since Ford introduced the Ranger. This is it. Ford’s Ranger will not be affected by subtle design changes. Volkswagen has added to the existing knowledge by releasing new information.

2023 Volkswagen Amarok Review

The teaser image may be worth a thousand words, but it isn’t much more than what we saw in the teaser. Amarok’s interior will be more luxurious and hint at premium repositioning. The dashboard is covered with fine leather and features yellow contrast seams. These graphics are almost identical to the Ford Rangers.

Engine

The new Amarok will offer connectivity and assistance systems that are unique in this market. The Amarok will have a “highly efficient TDI diesel motor” that can power four cylinders upon launch and a V6 TDI later. The market will decide which engine options are available to the Amarok. This includes gasoline engines.

This is very encouraging, considering diesel engines aren’t so popular in some parts of the world. It is also less encouraging that the future Volkswagen Amarok will be built in South Africa at Silverton. While this does not completely rule out a North American launch, it is safe for us to assume that the Ford Ranger will remain our only choice for quite some time.

Volkswagen registered the American name Amarok for its Amarok pickup truck in 2018. This suggests that the Germans at least had plans to transport the pickup truck across America. This was however before Ford signed the Ford deal. Volkswagen claimed that the second-generation Amarok will be revealed this summer, while the cars would arrive in the first markets at the end of 2011.
