VW Amarok Dark Label And Aventura Exclusive Concept Announced For Frankfurt

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will unveil two new Amaroks at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

First up, the Amarok Aventura Exclusive concept features a Turmeric Yellow Metallic exterior with chrome accents and 19-inch alloy wheels. The truck has also been equipped with bi-xenon headlights, faux aluminum skid plates, and a cargo cover.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as drivers will find black leather seats with Curcuma Yellow contrast stitching. There’s also a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a black roof liner, and an infotainment system with GPS navigation.

Power is provided by a 3.0-liter TDI V6 engine that produces 258 PS (190 kW). It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which is paired to an all-wheel drive system.

Volkswagen will also introduce the new Amarok Dark Label. Based on the Amarok Comfortline, the special edition features an Indium Grey matte exterior with matte black mirrors and a matte black roll bar. Other highlights include 18-inch alloy wheels and a revised grille with lacquered chrome accents.

The interior largely carries over but designers installed a black roof liner and special floor mats with embroidered Dark Label logos.

Under the hood, two different TDI V6 engines will be available. The entry-level model has 163 PS (120 kW) and features a six-speed manual transmission. The range-topping variant boasts 204 PS (150 kW) and can be connected to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The Amarok Dark Label will be available this spring and German pricing starts at €33,714 ($40,084).

    These would sell so well in the US. Even after Dieselgate. They’re easily the best looking mid-size pickup out there. And the most refined.

    Definitely decent looking (IMO)! A better looking truck than the Honda “looks like someone cut off the back of the Odyssey to make me a truck” Ridgeline. I like the yellow too.
