The exclusive Amarok boasts a top of the range spec in performance and design and goes on sale on 1st April 2014. From its specially developed high-shine styling bar to the robust, colour-keyed under-ride guard, the Amarok Canyon exceeds expectations in terms of technology, engineering and style.
Based on the popular Trendline trim but boasting distinctive rugged styling, the Amarok Canyon is packed with over £8,500 worth of extra equipment including: satellite navigation with a six-inch colour touchscreen, Bluetooth, unique styling bars, 19" Cantera alloy wheels and heated leather seats. Drivers also benefit from front and rear parking sensors, privacy glass, a protective coating for the load area, a matt black roll cover, interior floor mats and high-gloss black side styling bars and rear bumper. It comes in three colours, Copper Orange, Reflex Silver and Deep Black.
Simon Griffin, sales manager at Greenhous Volkswagen Van Centre, said “We are thrilled to be chosen as one of the few dealers in the country to stock the Amarok Canyon. With only 350 models in production, the Canyon will be a rare sight on the roads and we have been lucky enough to get one in our showroom. “The Amarok has been a huge success in the pick-up market since its launch. With the bad weather we have experienced over the past few years, we have definitely noticed an increase in the popularity of 4 x 4 vehicles, especially living in a rural area like Shropshire.
“The Amarok Canyon has taken things further in terms of styling, features and performance and has already got customers and industry experts talking since the announcement back in January.”
Building upon the multi award winning Amarok, the limited edition model comes with Volkswagen's top of the range 2.0-litre BiTDI 180 PS engine, offering up to 420 Nm of torque and a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,200 kg. The individual style of the Amarok Canyon continues inside where the interior features a combination of Nappa and Vienna leather upholstery in two-tone Moonrock (light grey) and Anthracite (dark grey). A leather-covered steering wheel and gear knob with sporty orange stitching adds to the Canyon's unique appeal. Prices start from £28,990 (excluding VAT) for the manual transmission and rise to £30,720 for the automatic alternative.
