    How cool would this be if they made it for the Amarok

    I would be willing to pay 3 times the existing price for composite leaf packs

    That's pretty cool... The communities in SA are full of really nice people - we met a few when we were there... They do it tough...

    Yeah, nice but with the Navara underpinnings....
    One of the 4b mags did a real world test comparison with Ranger, Hilux, Colorado, D Max and the Nav. The Nissan failed to impress the judges with its towing and load carrying (in)capability.

    Hopefully if they are going to price it so it's affordable to most people, VW will also have to be competitive with their pricing, and not 65k+

    New ranger raptor will have a 2lt turbo diesel supposedly outputting similar numbers to the 3.2lt. Wonder what ford fans will think of the 2lt option now.
    Also Toyota is said to be offering an actual trd hilux instead of just a body kit and holden is looking at a hsv Colorado version.
    Hopefully Volkswagen pull the finger out and make a raptor competitor with 200kw. Amarok R anyone?

    This was not a very good review of the V6... https://www.caravancampingsales.com....marok-v6-58835

    Especially with statements like this in the review:-
    Volkswagen says in the V6 Owner’s Manual not to use a Weight Distribution Hitch under any circumstances, as it may cause the towbar “to tear loose”.

    You’re also supposed to keep your speed to 80km/h when towing, although you can go up to 100km/h in ‘exceptional cases’.

    Not only does Volkswagen prohibit the ute of a WDH, in our case they also prohibit the use of an Electric Brake Controller (EBC). That is, under a global Volkswagen Group edict, no press vehicle is to be fitted with a non-genuine part. So, no Volkswagen Accessory EBC, no EBC on a press vehicle.

    That left us with no choice but to use a caravan that had override brakes, which can only be legally fitted to caravans weighing less than 2000kg (only because at more than 2000kg Tare, a trailer must have brakes operable by the driver within reach of the driver’s seat).

    Writer must have had an issue with VW about something!!
