The most powerful Amarok ever has landed.

The new Amarok V6 580Nm is the benchmark. And it was the Courchevel Altiport in France that proved the perfect testing ground to show just how impressive this V6 is. The scenario: 2007 metres above sea level, with heavy crosswinds, a 537-metre runway, plus a glider with a 23-metre wingspan ready for take-off. The performance: 200kW of power*, 580Nm of torque, 0-100kph in 7.3 seconds and permanent 4MOTION 4WD… Easy work for the new Amarok V6.

Experience Power.

The Amarok V6 is equipped with the latest generation 3.0 litre turbo diesel engine, producing up to 200kW of power (available on over-boost) and 580Nm of torque. Matched with incredible driving dynamics and fuel economy, it is a true German thoroughbred that feels right at home on any Kiwi road.

Model Meets Muscle

That's right. A V6.

The Amarok V6 has the power and torque to cater for anything Kiwi roads and driving situations might demand. Whether you need the most torquiest engine to tow your toys, or the overboost power feature to make those tricky overtaking manoeuvres (0-100kph as rapidly as 7.3 seconds), it will have you covered.

Dial up the kW.

The Amarok V6 Overboost feature provides a short burst of power that ramps the engine’s output up to an additional 15kW on the 550Nm and 10kW on the 580Nm while extending maximum torque delivery. With up to ten seconds of distinctly more grunt.

Stopping power

The most powerful ute in its class also boasts some class-leading stopping power. Not only does the Amarok V6 have the largest brakes in its class, it features front and rear ventilated disc brakes, which means superior braking performance and reduced chance of brake fade.

Go 8th gear places.

All roads aren’t made the same and neither are all gearboxes. The Amarok V6 features a unique 8 speed automatic gearbox and is matched to the Permanent 4x4 Torsen® to deliver high levels of grip no matter what path you choose.

Life n' Style.

With an aggressive stance and V6 badging, the Amarok is every bit as legendary on the outside as it is underneath. We’ve dialed up the brawn with large alloy wheels and sports bar. Along with Bi-Xenon LED headlights, daytime running lamps and chrome accents, style never takes a back seat with this ute.

Stepping it up.

A ute can never have too much stainless steel and this Amarok delivers the on the look. We’ve stepped up the sidebar on the Amarok V6, with a stainless and LED lighting finish.

Bi-Xenon Headlights

Shine on.

When you start with the legendary rugged style of Amarok and then add details like Bi-Xenon headlights, you end up with a ute that’s going to turn a lot of heads. Bi-Xenon lights with integrated LED daytime running lights provide a clearer view in poor weather conditions.

Amarok V6


Be sure to turn heads.

Pickup a Pallet.

With the widest tray in its class, the Amarok V6 offers more space between the wheel housing for tools, furniture, luggage and yes, pallets.

A dash of class.

The Amarok V6 looks every bit as good inside as it does out. Spacious, sophisticated and comfortable, it features a completely redesigned dash panel with sharp trim, an A4 format storage compartment and a cutting-edge infotainment system.

Work really shouldn’t be this relaxed.

There’s comfortable and then there’s award-winning comfort. The Amarok V6 has been recognised with the AGR seal of quality for outstanding ergonomics. It’s the one award your back will appreciate.

Master the Terrain.

Turn heads on the street or turn it loose in the bush.

Permanent 4MOTION

Full time four wheelin’.

Take on the toughest New Zealand terrain in your Amarok V6 with Permanent 4x4 with a Torsen® middle differential providing balanced 40:60 distribution.

Downhill Assist4

Getting down.

There’s a lot going down with the Amarok V6. Hill Descent Assist helps you handle downhill slopes in a safe, controlled way by governing engine speed and applying the brakes, if needed.

Amarok V6

Off-Road ABS

Improved safety on unpredictable terrain.

The Off-road ABS reduces the stopping distance on loose surfaces at the press of a button. When this function is activated the braking interval is increased; the wheels lock up in a controlled manner so that material from the ground, such as gravel or sand, build up in front of each wheel, reducing the stopping distance.

Amarok V6

Climb & Angles

Covering all the angles.

Get your fill of fresh mountain air in the ute that’s built for a climb. The Amarok V6 handles 100% grade with a full payload and its broad track delivers outstanding stability when driving along slopes with inclines up to 50 degrees.

It's all in the details.
