Caravan Salon 2023: New VW Amarok acea per pick-up!
At the Caravan Salon, which calls itself “the world’s leading trade fair for mobile recreation”, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in addition to the new California Concept based on the Multivan, further innovations were on display, including a new Amarok PanAmericana on show in Düsseldorf. This special pickup has been modified by the equipment supplier Genesis Import to create the perfect overlander/camper van, including a rooftop tent, a 270-degree awning and an equipped Alu-Cab hardtop.
The basis is a black-painted Amarok PanAmericana with all- wheel drive, rear differential lock, 177 kW output, a 3.0 l V6 TDI engine and up to 600 newton metres of torque. Among other things, the off-roader comes with an equipped Alu-Cab hardtop, a rooftop tent and a 270-degree awning. Modifications to the suspension, BFGoodrich AT tyres with Delta wheel rims and styling are also included in the conversion. Additional LED lighting on the roof or additional headlights on the front end are also available, for example, for journeys in Scandinavia. This makes it possible to travel to exotic places as well as go on short and relaxing weekend trips to the countryside in the nearby area.
The design of the Amarok PanAmericana makes a strong statement. The pickup is equipped with IQ.Light LED matrix headlights, LED tail light clusters, front bumper in the vehicle colour, and driver and front passenger seats with electric 10-way adjustment. Also included is an infotainment system with 30.5 cm (12-inch) touchscreen and navigation system as well as leather seats and a leather-covered cockpit. The numerous standard assist systems on board include Park Assist with front and rear Park Distance Control and Rear Traffic Alert, cruise control system, intelligent speed assist system, ACC and Dynamic Road Sign Display.
