Volkswagen’s multi award-winning Amarok has always challenged traditional pick-up conventions.  And now the new special-edition Amarok Canyon has powered to the pinnacle of the range to offer new heights of performance, design and equipment. A limited number of 350 vehicles will be available to UK customers when the Canyon goes on sale on 1 April.

From its specially developed high-shine styling bar to the robust, colour-keyed under-ride guard, the Amarok Canyon exceeds expectations in terms of technology, engineering and style.  Based on the popular Trendline trim but boasting hi tech features as well as distinctive rugged styling, the Amarok Canyon is packed with over £8,500 worth of extra equipment including: satellite navigation with a six-inch colour touchscreen,Bluetooth, unique styling bars, 19” Cantera alloy wheels and heated leather seats.  Drivers also benefit from front and rear parking sensors, privacy glass, a protective coating for the load area, a matt black roll cover, interior floor mats and high-gloss black side styling bars and rear 

The individual style of the Amarok Canyon continues inside where the impressive interior features a combination of Nappa and Vienna leather upholstery in two-tone Moonrock (light grey) and Anthracite (dark grey).  A leather-covered steering wheel and gear knob with sporty orange stitching adds to the Canyon’s unique appeal.  When ordered in Copper Orange the air vent surrounds are matched to the vehicle’s exterior colour, while on the Deep Black and Reflex Silver models the air vent surrounds feature Matt Chrome.

Those wishing to enhance further the look of this special-edition Amarok can add the optional roof light bar for only £945 (ex. VAT).

The Amarok Canyon’s muscular appearance is matched by the power that drives it.  The Canyon comes with Volkswagen’s top of the range 2.0-litre BiTDI 180 PS engine, offering up to 420 Nm of torque and a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,200 kg. 

Customers can choose between a six-speed manual with selectable 4MOTION (50 vehicles available) or an eight-speed auto with permanent 4MOTION® (300 vehicles available). 

The automatic version boasts BlueMotion Technology modifications, which include low rolling-resistance tyres, and Start/Stop and regenerative braking systems to provide greater economy and lower emissions.

The Amarok Canyon is available in three colours: Copper Orange, Reflex Silver or Deep Black – with Indium Grey foil lettering and Silver under ride guard.
 
Retail prices start from £28,990 (excluding VAT) for the manual transmission and rise to £30,720 (excluding VAT) for the automatic transmission.  The Amarok Canyon will go on sale on 1 April.
