Volkswagen Australia has confirmed the Amarok V6 manual will arrive here in December but only the Core variant will get the manual transmission.

Volkswagen has confirmed the Amarok V6 manual will arrive in Australia in December, saying it has listened to customers. The manual transmission will only be available on the Core variant, with the more-power 580 Ultimate sticking with its eight-speed automatic transmission only. The Amarok V6 Core makes 165kW at 2500-4800rpm and can overboost to 180kW and has 550Nm of torque from 1500-2500rpm. The braked towing capacity is 3500kg with a towball download of 300kg.

Speaking about customer feedback, Ryan Davies, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Australia, said: “At every off-road, caravan and camping expo and Big Red Bash concert the team and I attend, we speak with current owners and members of the off-roading community who have begged us to bring an Amarok V6 manual to Australia”.

“It was because of that passion that we were able to mount a case with our head office in Germany to build one and, based on Australia remaining the number one export market in the world for the V6 Amarok, we are finally able to offer this unique, Aussie-spec ‘Rok,” Ryan said.

In addition to the manual Amarok V6 Core, Volkswagen announced it will launch two new limited-edition models in Australia, the Amarok V6 Highline Black and the Amarok Canyon.
