4MOTION and off-road mode

Four the win

Permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive

Even under extreme conditions, the Amarok turns every journey into an experience. That's because its chassis and drive system have been perfectly tuned – and combined with the tried-and-tested 4MOTION all-wheel drive.

The intelligent ‘off-road’ button sets up the vehicle for off-road driving with functions including Hill Descent Control, and recalibrated ABS settings that improve performance on dirt, and reduce the stopping distance on loose surfaces.


Black on black, on black

The interior reflects what the exterior promises, darkness with carbon detailing.

Dark design and pure power

  • 2.52 m² cargo box
  • 508 mm tall dropside
  • Lower loading sill height of 780 mm

Carefully planned right down to the smallest detail

Overboost - Dial up the kW

The Amarok V6 Overboost feature provides aa short burst of power that ramps the engine's output to an additional 10kW while extending maximum torque delivery. With up to ten seconds of distinctly more grunt.

Brakes - Stopping Power

The most powerful ute in its class also boasts some class-leading stopping power. Not only does the Amarok V6 have the largest brakes in its class, it features front and rear ventilated disc brakes, which means superior braking performance and reduced chance of brake fade.
