Unlike its predominantly Thai-built rivals, the Volkswagen Amarok hails from the land of steak and the tango: Argentina.
Also unlike most of its rivals, it offers a six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine. It's a 3.0-litre mill, and it sits above a more typical 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder.
The current model was developed solely by Volkswagen, though it'll soon be replaced by a model that shares much with the next-generation Ford Ranger. That should provide the Amarok with long-awaited active safety technology, the biggest downside of the current truck which is otherwise ageing like a fine Argentine Malbec.
Depending on the variant, the Volkswagen Amarok may be built in Argentina, Germany or United States Of America and is then shipped to Australia.
The 2021 Volkswagen Amarok has a braked towing capacity from 3000kg to 3500kg depending on the variant and an unbraked towing capacity of 750kg.
Volkswagen suggests that owners service their Volkswagen Amarok every 12 months or 15,000km, whichever comes first.
