Six-Wheel Amarok Coming…Down Under


By: Evan Williams
Move over, Mercedes. You aren’t the only ones who can make a six-wheeled monster utility vehicle. Volkswagen is looking at a 6×6 Amarok of its own.
The six-wheel Amarok pickup (and no, it won’t actually be a 6×6. It’ll be a 6×4) is being developed by Australian conversion company Six Wheeler Conversions, and it’s with the blessing of Queensland dealer Austral Volkswagen.
Based on the double cab model, the only Amarok for sale in Australia, the six-by uses a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 that makes 221 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. A more powerful version is expected later in the year that will produce up to 268 hp on overboost and 428 lb-ft. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic with four-wheel drive.
The beefier ute will offer just under 10,000 lbs towing, and a 3,740 lb payload. Those are up from the stock truck, which is most of the reason for the conversion. More utility for your ute. It will also offer an 8.5-foot bed, although it will be a tray with short walls, not a standard truck bed.
It’s expected to be done and on sale later this year, and Six Wheeler Conversions will update the build on their facebook page. Since the U.S. doesn’t get the Amarok, don’t expect this one to arrive here either. Maybe in 25 long years.
