Do you remember what power feels like?
The bold, uncompromising and thrilling performance of the V6 TDI engine makes the Amarok the ultimate ute on the road, or in the bush. Now the most powerful ute in its class, the Amarok V6 sets the benchmark within the Australian ute segment.
Hit 'em for six.
The Amarok V6 is available in Sportline, Highline and Ultimate variants - each offering 165kW as standard, surging to 180kW with Overboost.
Overboost. Power and then some.

The most powerful ute in its class
This ute is powerful. Very powerful. The latest generation 3.0l TDI V6 Engine delivers 165kW of power delivering 550Nm of torque, which lets it do the 0 to 100 dash in 7.9 seconds. Oh yeah, and it has an overboost function that delivers even more punch when you really need it. That’s an extra 15kW on top of its class-leading grunt.Download a Brochure Book a Test Drive

Tough is never an optional extra.
The gang-busting Amarok V6 doesn’t just have a lot of character on the outside, there’s plenty of personality on the inside and under the hood, too. And it all coalesces to make a ute that’s built to bully the beaten track – on and off.
The largest tray in its class.
The Amarok V6 can pack a full size ‘Euro’ pallet with its class-leading 1222mm tray. Not only is it the widest, it has four lashing eyes conveniently located around the load space. Plus, when you work late, there’s a light above the rear window to illuminate the tray. And, with a tailgate that can cope with loads up to 250kg, the Amarok V6 will take the brunt of the most extreme workloads.Download a Brochure Book a Test Drive
Tough not rough
Details. That’s what makes the V6 more comfortable and enjoyable to drive than any ute in its class. We’ve completely redesigned the dash to include the latest multimedia musts like App-Connect2.

A tray-full of safety tech.
Safety is key when you’re sitting on this much power. That’s why we’ve added some technology that’ll make sure you stay on top of all things safety, even when you’re off-road.
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.Download a Brochure Book a Test Drive
Safety built-in as standard
The trailer stabilisation complements the electronic stabilisation program. If your trailer starts to fluctuate heavily, the system slows it down through controlled braking and reduced engine torque – steadying the trailer and increasing driving safety. Genuine Amarok wiring harness must be fitted.Download a Brochure Book a Test Drive
Prevent follow-on collisions.
When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.Download a Brochure Book a Test Drive
Mechanical differential lock
A flying start even when you're off-road
The mechanical differential lock makes starting up in adverse, off-road conditions much easier. When the going gets tough you can rely on this standard diff-lock, which mechanically locks the rear wheels to ensure maximum traction in any condition.Download a Brochure Book a Test Drive
Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)
A good steer on safety.
Helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing understeer or oversteer. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Programme will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.Download a Brochure Book a Test Drive
