2017 VW Amarok Facelift Spotted During Testing In Sweden

Our spies caught VW testing the upcoming facelifted Amarok pickup truck out in the cold in Sweden.

VW’s pickup truck is going to receive a visual update that will bring it in line with the rest of the range.

That translates into new headlights, front grille and bumper, giving the Amarok a more modern face in the same context as the new Tiguan while the cabin is also scheduled for a much-needed overhaul, judging by the cover on the dash.

Expect better quality materials, new infotainment systems and the latest array of off-road and safety systems which debuted in the latest Tiguan SUV.

VW is also going to apply a series of updates to the existing engine line-up and there is even the possibility of a new engine. The new 2017 VW Amarok is expected to be revealed in late 2016.
