Volkswagen South Africa has been promising us the 190kW version of the Amarok for a few years now.
The arrival of the 190kW bakkie was pushed back after that, but VW did not provide a new launch date.
This weekend, however, it confirmed that the 190kW version will arrive in the third quarter of 2020.
The high-output Amarok delivers 190kW and 580Nm of torque from the same 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine. This is a nice increase over the 165kW and 550Nm the Amarok currently makes.
Once it arrives, the 190kW model will be the most powerful bakkie available in South Africa, since the X-Class has now been discontinued.
