Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Australia has announced a technical upgrade to its Amarok V6 2018 model range, with the towing capacity increasing from 3000kg to 3500kg.
Achieving the increase in towing capacity has required engineering changes to the V6 model Amarok, including an update to the rear step setup and a new 3500kg rated genuine towbar.
The update has been a pet project of the Australian Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles team. Marketing Manager, Nick Reid, was thrilled to offer the heightened capacity to Amarok customers.
“We know that Amarok buyers use their vehicle for work and play. The ability to tow a caravan or a boat is at the very heart of the Amarok, and we’re glad that we’re able to offer this enhancement to our customers, and their weekends,” Mr Reid said.
The uprated 3500kg towing capacity applies to all MY 2018 Amarok V6 models onwards.
The MY18 range of V6 Amaroks are available now for customer order in Volkswagen’s national dealer network.
The Amarok line-up and recommended retail pricing remains unchanged for Model Year 2018.
