VW Releases Sketches Of Updated 2017 Amarok

These are the first sketches showing the revised VW Amarok pickup truck, scheduled for reveal at a later date.

VW’s ‘premium’ pickup truck will be subjected to a subtle redesign on key areas like the front end, with the company also updating the cabin with better quality materials, more tech and a freshened design.

Although the company remains mum about the details, we expect also to see VW’s latest safety systems on the 2017 Amarok, including the Front Assist with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitoring system.

From what we can see from the sketches, the new Amarok is getting a new, sportier front bumper, wider fenders and an LED treatment for the lights all around.

Previous reports suggest that a new engine will be added also to the lineup, with the existing units to be fine-tuned for better fuel efficiency and performance.

Sales are expected to start toward the end of the year, with the full details still to be announced.
