Add the Canyon edition of the Volkswagen Amarok to the list of reasons we wish this truck would come to the U.S. When it goes on sale in April, the special edition Amarok Canyon will only be available for 350 people in the UK. It has features rugged styling that includes features like an available chrome light bar and standard color-matched skid plate. It also comes with features like a 6-inch color touch-screen, 19-inch Cantera alloy wheels, heated leather seats, and Bluetooth. Also part of the special edition are front and rear parking sensors, bedliner, matte black soft tonneau cover, and glossy black side bars and rear bumper. The cabin comes with Nappa and Vienna leather in Moonrock and Anthracite. It also comes with a leather steering wheel and shift knob, both with orange stitching. Buyers that order the Copper Orange Amarok get matching orange air vent surrounds; on Deep Black and Reflex Silver models, those surrounds are matte chrome. The truck, which for us is the forbidden fruit, is powered by a 178-hp, 2.0-liter twin-turbodiesel, which offers up to 310 lb-ft of torque. The engine is backed by a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. The Amarok has a maximum towing capacity of up to 7050 pounds.
