VW Amarok 2023 Hardcore Version Previewed By Off-Road Specialists


Volkswagen launched the new Amarok a few months ago and tuners have already started previewing their custom build based on the Ford Ranger-based truck. Customers looking for a step above VW’s own PanAmericana trim level may want to contact the Delta4x4 as German off-road specialists are preparing a larger version of the midsize pickup. The official renderings provide a preliminary overview of the “Beast” currently in the works.

The reworked suspension setup will allow the modified Amarok to sit 150 millimeters (nearly six inches) taller than the standard truck for increased all-terrain capability. Delta4x4 also plans to install beadlock wheels wrapped in 305/70 R18 or 35×12.5R20 tires. To house the fat wheel + tire combo, giant fender flares will make VW’s new truck go all over the place a lot wider.

The Amarok 2023 also gets an LED bar on the roof as well as more light-emitting diodes mounted on the front bull bar. PIAA will supply additional lights while Horntools has been selected to provide the winch. Rounding out the upgrade are the roof rack, Delta4x4 badges front and back, along with a red “Beast” sticker on the side of the bed.

Additional technical specifications have not been disclosed but renderings suggest the aftermarket project will be based on a powerful six-cylinder version judging by the “V6” logo on the grille. Connected to a ten-speed automatic transmission, this 3.0-liter diesel borrowed from the global Ford Ranger 2023 produces 238 horsepower (177 kilowatts) and 247 hp (184 kW) depending on specifications.

Following its official reveal in early July, the new Amarok entered production in September at Ford’s plant in Pretoria, South Africa. where it is built in five trim levels: Amarok, Life, Style, PanAmericana, and Aventura. Unlike the Ranger with its family-oriented 2023 Everest sibling, the VW truck won’t spawn a ladder-framed SUV.

It is worth mentioning that the original truck developed by VW and launched in 2010 is still made in Pacheco, Argentina for the South American region.
