You can now buy an Amarok Ultimate V6 with matte paint

2017 Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate V6 with Matte paint
You can now option your 2017 Amarok Ultimate V6 with matte paint, for 4 grand.

Coming in at $67,990 (plus on-roads), the Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate V6 is the most expensive dual-cab ute you can buy. Save from a big full-size Yankee ute (like the Ram Truck or Performax stable), the Amarok Ultimate V6 is more expensive than the Ranger Wildtrak ($61,790), along with being the powerful and torquiest model available.

On top of that, people are having to stretch their dollar in order to secure a V6-powered Amarok. It shows how far this segment has come in terms of refinement and price, and with some people paying an extra $5,000+ over the base asking price.

Now, you can spend a little more on your Ultimate Amarok V6, with a matte paint option available. It costs $3,990, and you can get it in either blue or grey.

Volkswagen is pretty confident that V6-powered utes will account for around 50% of Amarok sales. Current supply constraints mean it’s currently around 30%. The introduction of the Amarok V6 has had a positive impact on sales overall, with the brand leap-frogging Isuzu’s D-Max sales so far in 2017.
