Volkswagen unveils Amarok pick-up

Volkswagen has introduced its new pick-up truck model at the 2011 Outdoors Show in London.

The German auto manufacturer unveiled the Amarok pick-up and the limited-edition California Berghaus campervan models for the first time in the UK at the motoring show at the ExCel exhibition centre.

The Amarok offers the largest load dimensions in its class, and the truck comes equipped with features such as an electronic differential lock, anti-slip regulation, ESP with hill hold assist, hill descent control and an ABS system with off-road capability.

The California Berghaus limited-edition model, which has been created in collaboration with the outdoor clothing brand it is named after, is available with a 2.0-litre BiTDI 180PS engine.

It comes with a bike rack, an awning, Berghaus-branded carpet mats and waterproof seat covers, and exclusive 18in twin-coloured Dakar alloy wheels.

The Amarok is expected to go on sale in the UK in Spring.
