The representative of the German brand in Australia said that for the VW Amarok pickup, an urgent need to present a more productive and off-road version. Such a car would be a worthy competitor to the Ford Ranger Raptor.
A more productive and off-road version of the German VW Amarok pickup may appear in the very near future. In an interview with overseas edition Motoring.com Nick Reed, marketing and product manager for commercial vehicles Volkswagen Australia, hinted that VW Australia plans to introduce a full-fledged competitor to the American Ford Ranger Raptor. With the growing demand for off-road trucks around the world, it makes sense for VW to make a more powerful version of its Amarok.
The VW Amarok truck is very popular in Australia. Its main competitors are the mid-size Ford Ranger, Toyota Hilux and Nissan Navara.
Ford offers the world-renowned Ranger Raptor to its avid customers, a more powerful and off-road-oriented version of the pickup that combines reinforced suspension with an aggressive exterior. Nissan is offering customers the lesser-known Navara SUV in an off-road version of the Warrior, and there are rumors of an off-road version of the Toyota Hilux.
“This fast growing segment of the market could leave VW behind if they don’t get serious about transforming their Amarok into a true SUV,” Reed said.
There are rumors that VW is working on a performance version of the Amarok called the W580. After this new model is launched on the market, VW will be keeping a close eye on what it takes to build an off-road Amarok.
