Spyshots: 2011 Volkswagen Amarok Single Cab
The engine lineup will pretty much be the same as on the regular version, but a new 2.0-liter petrol unit is likely to join the range as well. Sources are indicating that such a setup could be turbocharged and also compatible to run on Ethanol, a feature especially implemented for the Brazilian market. An automatic transmission is also possible, besides the 6-speed manual one available on the standard version.
The Amarok is offered with two 2.0-litre fuel-efficient, Euro5 compliant, common rail TDI engines producing 163 PS, with torque of 400 Nm at a low 1,500 rpm, or 122 PS with maximum torque of 340 Nm from 2,000 rpm.
Prices on the German market for the standard Amarok version begin at EUR26,203 for the two wheel drive version, equipped with the 122 hp 2.0 TDI diesel engine featuring the base equipment level. The model powered by the more powerful engine of the range, the bi-turbo 2.0 TDI diesel developing 163 hp, starts at EUR28,900 for the rear wheel drive version, and reaches EUR37,169 for the Highline (top equipment level) all wheel drive model.
