Volkswagen’s only pick-up truck, the Amarok has just been awarded the Best Pick-Up award at the Tow Car Awards 2017. Now in its 11th year, this award ceremony sees esteemed caravan specialist and influential journalist to vote on the best pick-up based on towing capability, practical features and day-to-day usability.
The Amarok stood out among competitors with its towing prowess and braking performance. With the Amarok facelift introduced late last year, the refreshed aesthetics and new 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel with 221 hp and 550 Nm further elevates its competitiveness. It was awarded four out of five stars in the Best Pick-Up category.
Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Carl zu Dohna, said: “I’d like to thank the team behind the Tow Car Awards for this accolade. We know our Amarok customers appreciate its unique ability to combine rugged off-road capability with on-road comfort and high levels of technology. To add a towing award string to its bow gives customers another reason to choose the Amarok.”
The Volkswagen Amarok was actually spotted on Malaysian soil during the 2012 Volkswagen Das Auto KL. Do you think Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) should reconsider introducing this award-winning pick-up truck here in Malaysia?
