Revealed in Hanover, Germany, the enhanced Amarok Ultimate gains bi-xenon headlights, U-shaped LED daytime running lights and a restyled grille with twin horizontal chrome bars.
The flagship Ultimate is further distinguished from the rest of the Volkswagen Amarok range by its polished 19-inch alloy wheels, silver side mirror covers and underbody guards, chrome styling bar and sidebars, darkened rear lights and LED number plate illumination.
The Ultimate’s updated cabin comes standard with anthracite and black Alcantara upholstery and special cut-pile floor mats.
Standard tech items include a reverse-view camera and front and rear parking sensors, heated and folding side mirrors, heated front seats, and the ‘RNS315’ infotainment system with a 5.0-inch touchscreen, satellite navigation and Bluetooth phone connectivity with audio streaming.
The updated Amarok Ultimate is available in Candy White, Natural Grey, Reflex Silver, Starlight Blue, Toffee Brown and Deep Black paint colours.
Volkswagen Australia public relations manager Kurt McGuiness told CarAdvice the local division was not expecting any changes to the Amarok Ultimate sold here until 2015 and said it was too early to confirm full specifications at this stage.
The existing Amarok Ultimate currently available in Australia costs $59,990 in six-speed manual form and $62,990 with the optional eight-speed automatic transmission.
