Unlike most pickup trucks, there isn’t a range of VW Amarok dimensions as there’s only one derivative – a double cab – available in the UK (developing markets also have a single cab). In this article, we list the Volkswagen Amarok dimensions, in terms of the load area, off-road and the overall vehicle.
VW Amarok dimensions – Overall
From the front bumper to the rear, the Volkswagen Amarok measures 5,321mm and there is a 3,097mm wheelbase (12.95 metres turning circle). In terms of width, the Amarok measures 2,228mm from door mirror to door mirror, while the body width 1,954mm. The overall height is 1,834mm.
VW Amarok dimensions – Load Area
The Volkswagen Amarok has the largest load area in its class. While it isn’t quite the longest load bed at 1,555mm (see Longest Double-Cab Load Beds), its by far the widest at 1,620mm and – at 1,222mm – the only pickup truck able to fit a Euro Pallet lengthways between the wheelarches. This equates to a total load area of 2.52 square metres, while the side walls measure up to 508mm.
VW Amarok dimensions – Off-Road
The ground clearance of the Volkswagen Amarok is just 192mm – lower than any other pickup truck – which helps its on road handling but means you’re more likely to bottom-out when heading off road. Similarly, you’re more likely to scrape the bumpers and beach yourself as the approach, departure and ramp over angles are rated at just 29.5, 18.0 and 15.6 degrees respectively.
The wading depth is just 500mm which, again, is fairly low and means its more likely to intake water. Therefore, if you’re looking to take your Amarok off road regularly, its advised that you raise the suspension and possibly fit a snorkel.
