TMR Team | Jul 10, 2012

Volkswagen has added an eight-speed automatic transmission to its Australian Amarok line-up, which is also joined by a new single-cab model this week.

The eight-speed ZF auto is available exclusively with the new dual-cab TDI420 revealed internationally in September, entering as the most powerful model in the range.

 

8-Speed Auto TDI420 Dual-Cab

With 132kW and 420Nm on tap, the twin-turbo Amarok TDI420 offers 12kW and 20Nm more than the TDI400 variant, which is the toughest model available with a manual transmission.

The auto's eighth-gear is configured as a fuel-saving overdrive gear, while the first gear is for off-road use, or for pulling away when towing.

Volkswagen says that the short first gear means there is no need for a low-range transfer case. (Watch for TMR's launch review this week.) All dual-cab automatics feature the TDI420 engine, with a Torsen centre differential.

Fuel consumption for the TDI420 is listed at 8.3 l/100km. The new engine and transmission combo offers a braked towing limit of 3000kg, with 300kg of downball weight.

In Ultimate trim, the TDI420 features standard leather seats, 19-inch ‘Alstaro’ alloy wheels, side steps and stainless steel sports bars.

 

Single-Cab Amarok

The local Amarok range is also joined by a single-cab body.

With the same length and wheelbase as the dual-cab models, the single-cab offers a 2205mm long cargo bed - 650mm longer than the dual-cab, but shorter than the single-cab Ranger and Triton.

The 1.22m loading gap between the wheel arches - 83mm wider than in the Ranger - remains unchanged, making for a total load area of 3.57m2.

Depending on the options, single-cab models list payload capabilities between 1174kg and 1394kg.

The single-cab is available with the same manual-equipped engines offered with the existing dual-cab range, including the TSI300, TDI340 and TDI400 options.

Buyers can choose rear-wheel-drive or selectable 4Motion four-wheel-drive with low range (TDI400 only). Each is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission.

In rear-wheel-drive TDI340 form, the single-cab Amarok lists fuel figures of 7.3 l/100km, while the TDI400 lists 7.8 l/100km.

 

Features

Standard features for entry-level models include 16-inch steel wheels, remote central locking, auto air conditioning, MP3-compatible CD audio, power windows and, with dual-cabs, a folding rear bench.

There is also plastic-coated sprayable floors, lit load areas, heated electric side mirrors and unpainted bumpers, door handles and mirrors.

The 4Motion four-wheel-drive models pick up cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and a multi-function steering wheel, joining the underbody guards and mechanical rear diff.

Trendline models offer 4Motion selectable four-wheel-drive, adding 16-inch alloy wheels, a lockable tailgate, external 12V power point, body-coloured handles, mirrors and front bumper, a black rear bumper and fog lights up front.

These models also get four-speaker audio (up from two in the entry models), a trip computer, underseat storage, map lights, carpeted floor, upgraded fabric trim, leather gear knob and handbrake, and a pair of 12V power points.

Highline models add 17-inch alloys and wheel arch flares, a sports bar in the back, side steps and a chrome rear bumper, along with tinted rear windows and chrome highlights.

Inside, there's more chrome highlights, dual-zone climate control, six-speaker touch-screen audio and rear parking sensors.

Finally, the Ultimate models add the choice of selectable 4Motion or permanent four-wheel-drive, along with 19-inch alloys, leather trim, heated front seats and silver highlights to the front end of the underbody protector.

 

Safety Features
