This is the Volkswagen Amarok Aventura Exclusive concept that Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is bringing to the 2017 IAA show in Frankfurt next week.

Looking striking in Turmeric Yellow Metallic, it bright truck “offers a glimpse” of a range-topping 3.0 litre TDI engine. The V6 turbodiesel delivers 258 PS of power (current top figure is 224 PS) and “increased torque”, which should mean that it has more torque than the current ceiling of 550 Nm. Permanent all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic make up the rest of the drivetrain.

Chrome can be found on the side sills, styling bar on the cargo box, front protection grille, exterior mirrors and rear bumper. The shiny bits go well with the high-gloss polished 19-inch ‘Milford’ wheels. Bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights are included.

Also on display is the roll cover system – a lockable, waterproof cargo bed cover which will be available for the first time in an aluminium design. The underbody guard also features an aluminium look. Features such as ParkPilot, reverse camera and a mechanical 100% differential lock all assist the driver in the urban jungle as well as off-road.

Inside, the Amarok Aventura Exclusive concept truck boasts black leather with Turmeric Yellow contrast stitching. The showcar is also equipped with 14-way adjustable ergoComfort seats, a three-spoke multifunction leather steering wheel with shift paddles and the Discover Media navigation system.

The new black roof liner in the Amarok will be shown for the first time in Frankfurt, completing a dark look accented by chrome bits.
