New 2023 Volkswagen Amarok pick-up truck

Volkswagen has released two more announcement sketches of the new generation of Amarok pick-ups. The new model should arrive on the market in 2022, and was jointly developed with Ford.

Developed by teams in Australia and Europe, this premium pick-up will be produced in South Africa in the future. The two companies agreed last year on a ‘global alliance’, which will include commercial vehicles and electric cars. The new-generation Amarok will be the first model launched as a result of this initiative, and Volkswagen describes it as a ‘major strategic step’. The current Amarok came on the market in 2010, and experienced its first facelift in 2016.
