More Wading Depth and Work Capacity on Volkswagen Amarok 2023

This is the 2023 Volkswagen Amarok. In 2010, the Hannover pick-up made its first debut, and 12 years later the second generation followed. And what does it offer? It is what we are going to tell you. Let's start with the front that, as you can see, we won't have to bend down to show you. We've got the huge grille that's now one piece instead of two, and automotive custom lighting that are always standard now. They can be Matrix, so-called IQ lights, optionally or in the top trim level.

Let's move on to the side view of the new Amarok. As you can see, the proportions are enormous: 5.35 meters long, 10 centimeters more than the previous one, and the wheelbase has grown by 173 millimeters to 3 meters 27, which benefits the interior, something we'll see later. A small mention of the wheels: we have the 21-inch wheels of the superior variant, although the basic version starts from 16, and depending on the trim level they can be 17, 18 and 20.


Volkswagen has also worked on the off-road qualities of the Amarok, it is not for nothing that it hides technology from the Ford Ranger, and the Amarok's fording capacity, which has increased from 500 to 800 millimeters, calls our attention above all.

And we are already inside the new Amarok. We sit in the most equipped version, with leather on the dashboard and seats, which can be "vegan" if you ask. It is very spacious, there is plenty of air for the head, and it is very comfortable. We see two large screens, on the one hand the digital cockpit, which depending on the finish is 8 or 12 inches, and a large display for infotainment, between 10 and 12 inches. Here we control the navigation, radio, custom headlights for cars, telephone, etc., and it comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

We can also regulate the driving modes, and whoever is still analog can do it with this rotary control. But what we like the most is that in the cockpit there is always a little animation if we choose snow, mud...
