VW Amarok special edition goes to the dark side…
VW Amarok Dark Label. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has introduced a new very high specification Dark Label special edition of its Amarok 4×4 pickup. Production is limited to around 200 with order books closing in April 2018 and first customer deliveries scheduled for May.
Based on the range-topping Highline specification, Dark Label is sure to stand out from the crowd. It sports a Carbon Steel grey metallic paint job, Dark Label graphics, side bars and a rear styling bar finished in matt black, 18in Rawson alloy wheels, matt black door mirrors, black door handles and a black rear bumper. Deep Black pearl or matt Indium Grey are optional body colour choices.
Power comes from a 204hp 3.0-litre V6, capable of developing peak torque of 500Nm from as low as 1,250rpm. An eight-speed auto gearbox comes as standard with VW’s permanent 4MOTION 4×4 system completing the drivetrain package.
Inside the cab Dark Label features Alcantara seat upholstery (manual lumbar adjustment for the front two), black headlining, branded floor mats and air vent bezels trimmed in chrome silk gloss. A Discover Media infotainment system with 6.3in colour touchscreen is fitted as standard and comes with Voice Enhancer and Guide & Inform. Other niceties include rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlight control with coming/leaving home function and power adjustable, heated and folding, door mirrors.
