Fresh on the heels of introducing the Volkswagen T7 California concept, Volkswagen is once again taking the spotlight, cementing its focus on outdoor enthusiasts with the unveiling of the Amarok Camper. Debuted at the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon, this modified pickup truck is set to redefine camping adventures.
In collaboration with Genesis Import GmbH, the Amarok Camper showcases a series of innovative modifications that set it apart from its predecessors. The most eye-catching feature is its retractable roof that doubles up as a sleeping tent. This feature, perched atop the truck bed, promises campers a night under the stars, with extendable awnings on the sides for added shelter.
The robustness of the camper is evident with additional headlights mounted both on the front and the roof, ensuring clear vision during nocturnal off-road expeditions. Complementing its adventurous spirit, the truck is equipped with elevated suspension and specially-designed off-road tires, enhancing its capability on challenging terrains.
Taking cues from the PanAmericana trim, the Amarok Camper boasts premium finishes that spell luxury. LED Matrix headlights, LED tail lights, electrically operated front seats swathed in fine leather, and a state-of-the-art 12-inch central display add to its plush interior.
Powering this outdoor marvel is a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine, churning out a whopping 240 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. This ensures that the camper doesn’t just look the part but plays it well too. With an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission, the engine’s power is efficiently distributed to all wheels, promising a smooth ride irrespective of the terrain.
In a nutshell, the Amarok Camper is Volkswagen’s ode to adventurers who don’t want to compromise on luxury. As the line between comfort and adventure blurs, this camper is poised to be a game-changer in the world of outdoor excursions.
