Volkswagen will be launching a special-edition Amarok Canyon V6 for the 2019 model year. The previous edition – launched in 2014 – was well-received in the UK, selling its 350 model allocation within six months.
Amarok Canyon: Distinctive Style
In addition to the standard Trendline and Highline trim levels, Volkswagen is unusual in that it always offers a new special edition each time one runs out. From the launch of the V6 in 2016, it was the Aventura model (limited to 240 models in the UK), followed by the Dark Label, limited to 200 customers. Next year will see the introduction of the Canyon.
The Canyon receives an exclusive ‘honey yellow’ paint scheme and, like the Aventura and Dark Label, will feature a number of distinctive styling cues such as unique 18-inch alloy wheels, black sills, sports bar, B-pillars and door handles, and wheel arch extensions.
Amarok Canyon: Specification
On the inside, the Canyon features orange stitching and detailing on the leather seats and gear stick, ‘Canyon’ floor mats, and lumbar support. Specs have yet to be released on the new Canyon, but it’s expected that the model will also receive a leather-trimmed steering wheel and satellite navigation on top of the already well-furnished Highline trim.
The Highline trim includes front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and a 6.3-inch touchscreen display with DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and voice commands. However, it lacks both electric seats and keyless entry and ignition.
Amarok Canyon: Price and Availability
The 2019 Volkswagen Amarok Canyon V6 will be priced at around £34,000 plus VAT and limited to around 250 units in the UK. It will be able to order from Volkswagen’s 72-strong Van Centre dealer network in the summer of 2019, with the first deliveries expected in September 2019.
