In another variation of the forbidden-fruit Amarok, Volkwagen is making a limited run of its popular midsize truck for the U.K. market called the Amarok edition (lower-case "e"), based on the Trendline spec. The special edition truck will offer bundled options resulting in a claimed savings of over $3000 to the buyer.
Included on the edition are 18-inch "Durban" alloy wheels, black side steps, black styling bars in the load area, rear privacy glass, front and rear parking sensors, a protective coating in the bed area, floormats, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, satellite navigation, and commemorative decals. The edition is offered with VW's high-output 2.0-liter I-4 TDI turbodiesel engine generating 178 hp, and 295 to 310 lb-ft of torque, depending on transmission, and VW's 4Motion four-wheel drive. It will be offered in Reflex Silver or Deep Black, with contrasting exterior mirror accent colors. Like the other Amarok models, the edition has a payload capacity of over 2400 lb, and is rated to tow up to 7000 lb.
Prices for the Amarok edition start at $35,304 for the manual transmission, and $38,019 for the eight-speed automatic. Sales for the Amarok edition will begin in July 2013.
