Market launch and price: Cooperation with Ford could make the pick-up cheaper
Design: New generation is longer and remains independent
Dimensions: Amarok is getting narrower
A new generation also means new dimensions for the Amarok. Contrary to the general trend towards larger and larger vehicles, the width of the VW is actually shrinking somewhat, but it is becoming longer.
● Width: 1.92 m (predecessor: 1.95 m)
● Height: 1.88 m (predecessor: 1.83 m)
● Wheelbase: 3.27 m (predecessor: 3.06 m)
Interior: VW cockpit with Ford screen
The Hanover-based company has already provided a first impression of the interior with a teaser image. It adopts an important element from the current Ranger: the upright display. This raises the question of whether the Amarok also adopts the Ford software or gets VW’s MIB system. There are indications in both directions: The displays on the digital speedometer are designed in the typical VW manner in the sketch, but the climate control unit under the central display is equipped with buttons in a very classic way, just like the Ranger. That doesn’t really exist at VW anymore. However, there are also some unique elements in the Amarok. The design of the center console is less down-to-earth than in the Ford, the steering wheel is typical VW and the design of the dashboard and door panels is different.
