Limited-edition Volkswagen Amarok Atacama on-sale in Australia
Volkswagen has released the limited-edition (limited to 500 units) Amarok Atacama in Australia with prices starting from $53,990 (+ORC).
VOLKSWAGEN AUSTRALIA has announced the sale of its limited-edition Amarok Atacama with prices starting at $53,990 (+ORC). The limited-to-500-vehicles Amarok Atacama is just an equipment and cosmetic tweak. The name Atacama is derived from the Atacama desert in South America.
The limited-run variant is available in TDI400 Selectable 4MOTION manual and TDI420 Permanent 4MOTION automatic models, and adds a multi-function display with satellite navigation, and front and rear park distance control. It also offers Bi-Xenon headlamps with LED daytime driving lamps, black sports bar and side steps, black rear step bumper, and 18-inch ‘Durban’ black alloy wheels with Bridgestone 255/60 R18 tyres. “To protect the tray” a spray-on liner is also included.
These spray-on tray liners have been available in the aftermarket for more than 15 years, but ‘Durabed’ is the only factory-applied spray-on liner and has been used by both Nissan and Ford in the past.
On the Inside, the Amarok Atacama gets a unique, new ‘QUAD’ fabric trim with a quilted bolster finish. Dual zone ‘Climatronic’ climate control, automatic headlights and rain-sensing windscreen wipers, front and rear park distance control and a rear-view camera are also standard with Atacama.
Are limited-run models like this enough to keep the Amarok front-of-mind for those shopping for a new ute in the face of competition from new HiLux, Ranger, BT-50 and Triton?
