Volkswagen has recently announced its plans to introduce the 2013 Amarok with a new BiTDI engine, which will replace the old one.
The German based automaker Volkswagen will introduce an upgraded BiTDI engine on the 2013 Amarok model which will replace the current. According to the car manufacturer, the old 163 HP (120 kW) BiTDI unit will be replaced by an upgraded 180 HP (132 kW) BiTDI, which will allow the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 11.0 seconds and tow up to 3,000 kg (6,615 lbs) with the manual or 3,200 kg (7,055 lbs) with the eight-speed automatic transmission.
“The new 180 PS engine and automatic transmission make the Amarok even more refined, plus with BlueMotion Technology also now available, it can offer more efficiency, too. The Amaroks from Germany are now arriving in Van Centre showrooms, with demonstrators available for test drives”, said the Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Alex Smith.
The new engine will allow the Volkswagen Amarok to burn an average of 8.0 liters of fuel every 100 km (35.3 mpg UK / 29.4 mpg US) and emit 211 g/km of CO2. The engine can also get the BlueMotion technology which will drop the fuel consumption to 7.6 L/100 km (37.2 mpg UK / 30.1 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions to 199 g/km. The 2013 Amarok will also get cornering fog lights, parking sensors, Bluetooth and 19-inch alloy wheels.
