Volkswagen Amarok Dark Label revealed

Limited edition VW Amarok pick-up truck adds black details and a high-spec interior

The new Volkswagen Amarok Dark Label limited edition has been revealed, featuring more equipment and a powerful diesel engine.

The Dark Label model is based on the standard Amarok pick-up and boasts 18-inch black alloy wheels, tinted rear windows and darkened tail lights. The dark detailing doesn’t end there though, with all models including a set of black side steps, a black rear bumper and black door handles.

However, as you can tell from the picture, the Amarok Dark Label isn’t just available in black. Customers can choose between Reflex Silver, Natural Grey and, of course, Deep Black.

Inside, the VW Amarok Dark Label gets grey suede-like seats, velour floor mats and exclusive Dark Label badges. Equipment comprises a multi-function steering wheel, leather gear knob, Bluetooth connectivity and heated seats. A six-inch colour touchscreen with sat-nav is also included.

All models come fitted with the top-of-the-range 178bhp 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine, capable of 0-62mph in just 11 seconds – not bad for a pick-up truck weighing more than two tonnes. Fuel economy stands at 34.4mpg, emitting 216g/km of CO2. It’ll tow a whopping 3,000kg trailer thanks to its standard four-wheel drive – making it perfect for caravanners, farmers and extreme sports enthusiasts.

An automatic gearbox can also be specified, with no adverse effect on fuel economy. In fact, it’ll actually emit one less g/km of CO2 – at 215g/km.

Just 300 VW Amarok Dark Label models will be made available to UK customers, priced from £26,125 (around £500 more than the basic model) for the 2.0-litre TDI with a manual gearbox. The automatic version costs £27,855 and both go on sale from 22 September.
