VOLKSWAGEN Commercial Vehicles has let loose its special edition Amarok Dark Label onto UK showrooms.
Much like what Nissan did with its Navara N-SPORT Black Edition last year, VW Commercial Vehicles has launched a can of black paint at its Amarok Highline to create the special-edition model.
Like the Nissan, the changes are aesthetic – 18-inch Rawson alloy wheels; matte black mirror housings, side bar and rear bar; black door handles; a black rear bumper; and all complemented by an exclusive Carbon Steel grey metallic paintjob – with a few practical additions thrown in: rain-sensing windscreen wipers; automatic headlight control; and power-adjustable, heated and folding door mirrors.
The interior also received a touch-up, with Alcantara and chrome silk gloss prominent. Other interior niceties include front seats with manual lumbar support, Dark Label floor mats and Discover Media with 6.33-inch touchscreen.
Not surprisingly, the powertrain remains unchanged, with Volkswagen’s V6 3.0TDI 150kW/500Nm engine pairing with an eight-speed auto and permanent four-wheel drive.
The Dark Label is priced from £33,650, with production limited to around 200 units. UK punters can order their dark steed now, with the first deliveries scheduled to arrive in May this year… Australians cannot.
