Volkswagen has teased its new Amarok pickup truck in a new teaser video revealing the tailgate and LED taillights of the vehicle along with a V6 badge as well.

The latest teaser from the German auto giant reveals that the 2023 Volkswagen Amarok will arrive with a V6 TDI engine. However, it is not sure if this six-cylinder motor will be the in-house developed Volkswagen V6 or carried over from the 2023 Ford Ranger. Interestingly, the latest teaser reveals the C-shaped LED taillights of the new Amarok pickup truck, which are similar to what the 2023 Ford Ranger comes with. The new video also reveals the LED taillight graphics.

Other design elements of the 2023 Volkswagen Amarok will include optional matrix LED headlights, which have been dubbed IQ lights. These lights have been already used in the new Volkswagen Polo and 2023 Ford Ranger as well and they generate around 900 lumens, which is almost double the standard headlamps.
