The forthcoming 2023 VW Amarok will receive more enhancements. The Ford Ranger mid-size truck serves as the basis for this model. A lot of information will be shared across the two variations, which is a good thing. Volkswagen has released the second teaser image of the Amarok pickup, following the first. As you may be aware, the company just unveiled the new-generation Amarok.
This model is now ready for further enhancements. According to reports, the Amarok truck will make its way to the United States. Furthermore, this model will continue to dominate Australian dealerships. Sales will commence in late 2022 or early 2023.
2023 Amarok Gets Nice Facelift
The appearance of the 2023 VW Amarok will not be completely redesigned. Volkswagen, on the other hand, provided the second teaser image. The front fascia of the second-generation Amarok is seen in this second design drawing, which was published overnight. Its twin-blade shaver-style front end will dominate the front portion. Amarok also gets an angular front bumper with a prominent silver bash plate.
The updated Amarok idea includes a pair of door handles that were missing in the previous drawing, along with squared-off wheel arches, heavy fenders, and additional silver on the side steps. Roof railings and a pair of thin LED lamps have also been installed to the top. The next Volkswagen Amarok, along with the next Ford Ranger, will be based on the Australian-designed T7 ladder-frame architecture. Of course, Ford’s model will look completely different.
New Engine Will Certainly Happen
Volkswagen has yet to reveal the powertrain lineup. The German truck, on the other hand, is anticipated to be powered by Ford’s turbo-diesel V6 powerplant. It’s most likely a 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6. This V6 diesel engine might be upgraded to fulfill the requirements of the 2023 VW Amarok. To yet, no official specifications have been released. Aside from the new chassis, engine, better 4WD system, and 10-speed automatic transmission, it’s unknown what additional Ford components will be used in the next Amarok.
We anticipate a bigger touchscreen and maybe a new version of the infotainment system. While the T7 Ford Ranger will be available in some places as a plug-in hybrid, the Volkswagen will not be electrified when it comes in the United States in 2023. The current Amarok is powered by a 2.0-liter engine producing 160 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque. Without a doubt, the new engine will be much more powerful. A 3.6-liter V6 engine with 275 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of twisting force is available as an option.
2023 VW Amarok Release Date, Price
The approaching 2023 VW Amarok will first be available in Europe, Australia, and the United States. Sales are expected to begin later this year or in the first quarter of 2023, according to the firm. Volkswagen has yet to provide pricing details, but will do so soon. In any event, the price will start at $35,000 and go up from there. With 90 percent of all VW sales sold in this nation, Australia remains the world’s largest market for Volkswagen Amarok with six-cylinder diesel dealers. In any case, additional information will be released by the German manufacturer closer to the official launch date.
