The pickup can be seen riding on winter tyres and has a considerable amount of suspension travel to tackle all kinds of terrains. The company has earlier revealed that the upcoming Amarok model will be bigger in size.

Volkswagen Amarok will be based on an updated version of Ford's T6 platform, and will be 3.93 inches longer and more than 1.57 inches wider than the outgoing model. The currently offered Amarok measures 206.9 inches long and 76.9 inches wide. This implies that the vehicle will offer a more spacious cabin as compared to the outgoing model.

The upcoming Amarok will be offered with option of diesel engines, including a potent V6 TDI, Motor 1 reported. There could be other powertrains available depending on the market that it is being offered in, just like how the new Ford Ranger is due to be offered in some countries with a petrol unit – the EcoBoost 2.3-liter four-pot.

Earlier teaser images of the new Amarok released by the company revealed the robust visual appeal of the vehicle thanks to its dominant front fenders, chunky side body cladding, prominent roof rails, pronounced wheel arches and towing hooks in the front and back. The vehicle's interior, too, appeared to be designed and built for the outdoors with dark upholstery shade. Its main screen gets a portrait mode and there are physical buttons visible under it.
