2021 VW Amarok Redesign – Major Interior Design
The interior design in VW Amarok is presented nicely and comfortably. It offers a large space for both the first and second rows. Speaking about the details in the car, it is excellent.
The driver could control the infotainment from the steering wheels. It could keep the driver’s focus not disturbed. As for the cabin dashboard, the design is bold and sharp.
The front monitor is combined with a touchscreen and push buttons. Smartphones could easily connect with the monitor as well.
There are a total of five seats for the passengers and driver. Unlikely other pickups, VW Amarok’s second row has a larger space than the others. The material seats use the best fine materials that are comfortable and easy to be cleaned.
The interior also provides two mug placements in the center and at the doors. It also has two saving boxes to keep some stuff inside the car. Like other cars, one is in the front of the cabin dashboard and the other in the car’s center.
The Masculine Exterior Design
VW Amarok is famous for its artistic design. This pickup is one of the examples of how this brand designs perfectly—starting on the front bumper and light to the upper part of the pickup, up to the backside. Overall the exterior is presented in a masculine, sharp and bold design.
The front and the back bumper are high enough to avoid rock smashes and others. Since this car is also included as an off-road pickup. The front lights are not as wide as other luxury pickups truck, but it produces bright and sharp light.
For access towards the inside, there are four passenger doors. Because the door is quite high enough, there is also a footstep just right below the door. It helps passengers to “climb” into the car.
The material for the trunk at the back uses a fine fabric material. Pointy items would not easily leave marks. The color would also not ease to fade even though it gets hot, cold, and wet.
To complete the master exterior look, the upper part of the pickup is completed with four sporty pointing lights. Users usually use it during the dark. To beauty the back trunk, a stain line metal presents surrounding the back part of the trunk.
The Strong Engine
The VW Amarok has a V6 3.0 of Six Cylinders Device. It is quite a big machine for a pickup class. Nevertheless, it is more environmentally friendly than the others in the pickup class. The engine machine has the same power of 220 horsepower. The position of the engine is located directly in the front trunk.
Driving the pickup on off-road or city road, the machine performs peacefully without any strong noise. The engine machine is strong and safe enough even though it gets through bumping and rough roads.
The fuel tank requires diesel and has a 9 liters full-size tank. The average usage for the fuel is 8,5km/ liter for city rides. While for off-road rides, it takes about 9,3km/liter.
Not only that, the design and engine are important, but also the technology features. The technology could add safety and comfort—for example, the post-collision braking brakes and the off-road ABS brakes. There are also many features to support the safety system to protect the passengers in dangerous mode. With this technology, users could ride safely with no worry and still a modest way.
2021 VW Amarok Release Date and Price
The prediction of the release date is in late 2020 where it opens a pre-order system. However, the market is still waiting for the official announcement for the company.
The price would start at $35,000 up to $45,000, depending on the model. Buyers could choose whether a single turbo diesel cabin or a dual-turbo diesel cabin. Or also between a normal Biturbo diesel or a trendline Biturbo diesel. It is quite a fair price to own a top pickup with an off-road driving experience.
The market would be waiting for the new 2021 VW Amarok. Combining technology, design, and engineering produces one of the best pickups for the market. Ease for drivers, comfortable for the passengers. Nevertheless, the pickup is still achievable at an acceptable price. The best part has a high-security system, and it is eco-friendly for the environment.
