Advanced safety systems and technology installed consist of ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) inclusive of Brake Assist System (BAS), six airbags, Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Traction Control System (TCS), Trailer Stability Control and off-road ABS, Hill Descent Control, Hill Hold Assist, and Trailer Stability Control and off-road ABS, for quicker stopping in loose road surfaces.
The choice between four-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and four-wheel drive in low range by pushing a dashboard button, is built into all models. This is the 4MOTION Selectable four-wheel drive system, which gives the car a gross weight of nearly 3200 kg. With the included hardier suspension system the payload is just over 1000 kg.
Trendline specification results in further refinements and equipment, in particularthe RCD 310 radio / CD player, two-zone air conditioner, multifunction computer, cruise control, not to mention all of the leather trim from the steering wheel, to the gear knob and the handbrake. The Trendline’s strong appearance of a mission is built on distinctive front bumper and wheelarch extensions, colour-coded mirrors, 17″ ‘Aldo’ alloy wheels, and front fog lights.
The Amarok Highline, as the range-topping model, stands heads and shoulders above others because it is even more decked out. It accomplishes this with a rear bumper, door mirrors, and especially the chrome detailed front grille, in addition to the 18″ ‘Durban’ alloy wheels, privacy glass, and the polished stainless steel sidebars. If that wasn’t enough, there are the heated front seats, rear parking sensors, and leather upholstery.
On the Highline model you have the possibility of 4MOTION Permanent as an add-on to the 4MOTION Selectable system. The Permanent system delivers the same payload, but due to the two and one leaf spring suspension, it rides more like a car.
In the Amarok range there are many options to individualise your vehicle. Look for the exclusive 19″ ‘Aragonit’ design alloy wheels, bonus protection for the unerbody and the load bay, and satellite navigation.
