So in additional to the Amarok Type R concept, VW has also released a new variation of the Amarok, dubbed the Amarok XXL. The XXL is only available in a four door variant, but the bed length grows from 1.55m to 2.21m. From what I can tell it is aimed at commercial users who have to carry long bulky items or those that want an off road capable ambulance that has the ability to carry a full length stretcher in the bed.
If this option was available in Canada, I’m not certain I would go for it. Predominately I’m looking for a daily driver and it is rare that I would put the bed to full use, let alone need the longer bed.
Don’t forget if you have information about the Amarok in Canada or have questions, drop me an email. Also I have a newsletter available that you can sign up for to get an email from me as soon as *REAL* news comes out about the Amarok in Canada.
