- In 2022 Volkswagen it will also debut the new generation of its Amarok pickup, closely related to the new Ford Ranger as both models rest on the same platform. The presentation of this new model is expected over the summer even if a precise date has not yet been communicated. The German brand has shared another teaser, actually a graphic sketch, which allows you to observe the design of the new pickup and, in particular, that of the side profile.
Even in winter and with large loads, difficult country tracks or off-road terrain are no problem for the #Amarok. The latest generation of #VWCV’s pickup will have its premiere this summer – and comes with a new design and numerous innovations.

You can see a generous height from the ground and the wheel arches are covered with plastic protection. Although the teaser allows us to understand it, the German brand emphasizes that the new Amarok will have higher dimensions than those of the current generation. Specifically, it will be 100mm longer and 40mm wider. Larger dimensions should allow you to have more space inside the passenger compartment.
The new Amarok will be proposed with different engines depending on the market in which it will be marketed. In any case, it will be there a powerful V6 diesel. A Ford-derived 2.3-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder petrol engine will also be available in some countries. It is worth noting that Volkswagen would have eliminated this pickup from its lists if the collaboration with Ford had not continued. However, the current Amarok has achieved some success since up to now it has been sold in about 850 thousand units.
The new model will be offered in different configurations, obviously also with four-wheel drive. For the debut, therefore, we will have to wait several more months. Marketing will likely start towards the end of the year or early 2023. The new pickup will be manufactured in Silverton, South Africa.
All that remains is to wait for further news on the debut of this model from the German manufacturer.
