Back in May 2019, we brought you initial details on the Volkswagen Amarok Canyon V6. And now VW South Africa has announced specifications for the special-edition bakkie.
Like other V6-powered Amarok models offered locally, the newcomer draws 165 kW and 550 N.m (and 180 kW and 580 N.m on overboost) from its 3,0-litre, six-cylinder turbodiesel heart, sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
So, what sets the R799 000 Canyon V6 apart from other Amarok variants? Well, it is available in a model-exclusive “Honey Orange” metallic exterior paint, while it exterior door handles bear a matte black finish and its grille is finished in black and chrome.
The body coloured side-mirror caps, meanwhile, feature chrome-effect strips, while the wheel arches, styling bar and side tubes bearing a black finish. You’ll furthermore notice “Canyon” decals as well as 17-inch “Aragua” alloy wheels.
Inside, the Canyon boasts partial leather upholstery with “Honey Orange” stitching, seatbelts with orange-coloured seams (a hue repeated on the multi-function steering wheel), “Greenhouse” black roof lining, Canyon-branded floor mats, stainless steel pedals and an electro-chromatic rear-view mirror.
Other standard features include bi-xenon headlamps, parking sensors (fore and aft), a reversing camera and the “Composition Media” audio system (with App-Connect). Optional features for the newcomer include the “Discover Media” audi system (for R20 579 and complete with navigation) and a seat-heating package (adding R5 044 to the price).
A three-year/100 000 km warranty and a five-year/90 000 km service plan (with intervals of 15 000 km) ships standard.
