Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles expanded its range of vehicles with the introduction of an innovative eight-speed automatic. This new transmission system combines a high degree of ride comfort and good off-road abilities with excellent level of fuel consumption for a modern day era.
The eight-speed automatic transmission uses a torque converter. This allows for better response at low speeds and less resistance to slip than a DSG transmission and these are key factors during off road driving and towing. Contact the SAC Branch near you for VW Amarok Upgrade options.

The new automatic transmission is combined with a 132 kW 2.0 litre Bi-Turbo TDI engine. It has a maximum torque of 420 Nm that is available at 1 750 rpm. The top speed of 179 km/h is said to be reached in 7th gear and the Amarok takes only 10.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h it is claimed.
