Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate 580 Ute Radio Segment

Amarok V6 Ultimate 580 side greenVolkswagen have launched the range topping Amarok V6 Ultimate 580 Ute.

The Amarok 580 competes in the premium end of the Ute segment against the likes of the Toyota Hilux Rugged X and Ford Ranger Raptor.

Loaded with extra features such as 20-inch alloy wheels, redesigned bumper, illuminated side steps, and exclusive Peacock Green paint option. There is also Nappa leather trim and electric heated front seats.

The main story however is that through some clever computer modifications the 3.0L V6 diesel engine  produces a healthy 200kW of power and a stump pulling 580 Nm of torque allowing for relaxed driving, towing and cruising.

Priced from $71,990 plus on road costs the only option is metallic paint at a cost of $610.

The Amarok 580 is suited to those drivers that will spend most of their time on normal roads, with an occasional outback adventure. It makes an excellent towing vehicle as well.
