Prior to the 2023 Volkswagen Amarok's early-year arrival in Australian showrooms, the model's specifications have been made public. To assist consumers in making reservations for the new Amarok well in advance of launch, Volkswagen dealers have today received comprehensive specification tables.
Ford and Volkswagen collaborated on the development of the second-generation Amarok, which is produced in South Africa on the Ford Ranger assembly line. Thailand is the source of Ford Rangers going to Australia.
Five model grades, including the Amarok, Life, Style, PanAmerica, and Aventura, will initially be available, according to information shared with Volkswagen dealers in Australia today.

The twin-turbo 2.0-litre diesel and single-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel are only available with 10-speed automatic transmissions, while the 2.0-liter diesel is available with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
In terms of the drivetrain, the V6 has full-time four-wheel drive hardware whereas the four-cylinder has part-time four-wheel drive hardware.
On the other hand, the 2.3-liter single-turbo petrol is supported by a 10-speed automatic and hardware for permanent four-wheel drive.
In comparison to the original Volkswagen Amarok, the majority of the 2023 Volkswagen Amarok models are equipped with a full complement of safety features, such as a center airbag and crash avoidance systems.
Additionally, the new Amarok has six driving settings: Normal, Eco, Slippery, Snow/Sand, Mud/Rut, and Tow/Haul.
