Volkswagen Amarok Canyon concept

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has created the Amarok Canyon concept to transport freestyle kayakers and their equipment around in style.

Finished in bright ‘Baladi Orange’ paintwork, the pick-up is fitted with a body lift kit and larger 18-inch ‘Durban’ five-spoke wheels wrapped in 275/65 R tyres, which results in the Canyon standing 85 mm taller than its standard counterpart, while their extra width meant a set of 35 mm extensions had to be attached to the arches. Other changes include electrically operated retracting tread plates, roof-mounted auxiliary headlights and smoked tail light lenses. Staying at the rear, a pair of carbon fibre kayaks are mounted to the cargo floor with the paddles latched in place on the inner surface of the tailgate.

Inside, the cabin features two-tone leather seats and a sports steering wheel and auxiliary instruments monitoring the Amarok’s climbing and tilt angles.

Powering this concept is a twin-turbocharged 2.0 TDI which delivers 132 kW (178 hp) and 400 Nm of torque to the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.
