Refreshed 2017 Volkswagen Amarok Spied
Images of the 2017 Volkswagen Amarok testing in Sweden have hit the Web overnight with rumours the six-year old VW ute will be out later this year.
WITH MOST COMPETITORS ROLLING out new utes late last year, think Ranger PXII, HiLux and NP300 Navara, a refreshed version of Volkswagen’s six-year old Amarok has finally been spotted. Testing in Sweden these images were published on World Car Fans (and there are more images after the jump).
The images show both single and double cab variants testing with camouflage only hiding the front headlights, grille and bumper. This suggests the most significant design changes will only be to the front of the vehicle, and that those changes are likely to mirror the front-end of the new Tiguan which runs a longer grille and rectangular headlights.
Details surrounding other possible changes are hard to come by, but it’s unlikely there’ll be any changes to the engine and transmission line up, although the interior is likely to be tweaked to fall into line with other VW commercial vehicle interiors. We’d suggest the latest Transporter might provide a few hints as to styling on the inside.
It’s believed the refreshed Amarok will be fully revealed soon and go on-sale towards the end of this year.
Question: Do you think tweaking the interior and front end will be enough to keep the Volkswagen Amarok competitive against recently refreshed rivals? See you in the comments.
