Amarok owners will be able to spec their new ute with an Alpine pack that brings with it a suite of suspension modifications and underbody protection
Volkswagen Amarok buyers are being given the opportunity to beef up their dual-cab ute with an extensive list of off-road upgrades known as the Alpine package.
Limited to just 100 units, the Alpine and Alpine Plus packages will be available for the Amarok V6 Core, V6 Sportline, Highline and Aventura grades from the second quarter of 2022.
Volkswagen’s brand director of commercial vehicles Ryan Davies said that the package, developed in partnership with Seikel, “ensures the Amarok V6 even further broadens its appeal for customers wanting a high output drivetrain with even stronger off-road capability”.
Priced from $6090, the Alpine off-road package includes a Koni Raid Offroad kit which raises ground clearance by approximately 25mm and includes front and rear twin tube shock absorbers. Eibach springs are also fitted to the front end.
A lower retainer for the front shock absorbers has been added, along with top and bottom spring plates, a front suspension strut unit and a rear 25mm spacer with special leaf spring brackets.
The Alpine package also includes a snorkel and protective cladding on the wheel arches.
For those wanting more, the Alpine Plus package is priced from $12,090 and features the same additions as found on the base package plus a more rugged exterior with rock sliders, protective door cladding and beefier wheel arches along with underbody protection for the engine, transmission and rear differential.
Mechanical upgrades include a breather kit for the transmission, transfer case and front and rear differential.
An off-road tyre package is also available separately for $1590 and consists of five General Grabber AT3 255/60 R18 tyres.
All extras are covered under Volkswagen’s five year, unlimited kilometre warranty.
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
