Off Beat Videos: Drag race! VW Amarok vs. Land Cruiser Prado vs. Discovery vs. Wrangler

Well, this is an interesting one. The folks over at CarWow have lined up the Volkswagen Amarok V6 for a drag race against the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, Land Rover Discovery and Jeep Wrangler.

Thing is, the Amarok is easily the most powerful of the bunch thanks to its 3,0-litre V6 heart (and it offers the most torque, too), so it heads into proceedings with quite an advantage.

The Discovery used in the race draws its urge from a 2,0-litre turbodiesel engine, while the Prado employs a 2,8-litre oil-burner (an engine option to set join the SA range late in 2020). The Wrangler Rubicon, meanwhile, uses a 2,2-litre turbodiesel.

Watch the video above to see the diesel-powered off-roaders take part in an (on-road) drag, a race from a rolling start and a braking test…
