The 2015 Volkswagen Amarok update is now on sale in Australia, bringing revised specifications, new variants, and a new trim line structure.
VW Australia has implemented a new naming structure for the MY2015 Amarok, with the lineup now made up of the Core Edition, Trendline, Highline, and Ultimate, in order of pricing and specification level.
A new dual cab 4×2 automatic has also been added to the range, featuring the TDI420 turbo-diesel engine, with a new single cab 4MOTION (4×4) automatic also powered by the TDI420. Both come with cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity, and a multi-function steering wheel as standard.
Kicking off the range, the Core Edition comes with 16-inch Korama alloy wheels as standard, and it’s available with either the TDI400 or TDI420 engine. Buyers can opt between a manual or automatic transmission.
Moving up to the Trendline gets you a set of 17-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors for the rear, and optional sat-nav and rear-view camera facilities. Special lumbar support seats for the front are also optional on this trim level.
Next up, the Highline comes with everything the models above get, and adds a standard rear-view camera, auto wipers and headlights, the lumbar seats, while bi-xenon headlights are optional.
Topping out the range is the new Ultimate. It, according to Volkswagen, is the pinnacle of the mainstream Amarok range. It comes with leather trim, 19-inch alloy wheels, and the full dash interface system with sat-nav and parking camera. Bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights are added for the MY2015 update.
The new model is available from Volkswagen dealerships around the country. See below for the full price list and corresponding new features.
