The Amarok Double Cab has revolutionised the local 1-tonne bakkie market since its introduction in September 2010. One of the innovative technologies that Amarok introduced into the local bakkie segment was the 8-speed automatic transmission in January 2013. Until now, this popular derivative was only available with a permanent four-wheel drive system.

Customers can now order the Amarok Double Cab Automatic with a rear-wheel drive system. The 4x2 derivative has a combined fuel consumption of 8.2 litres per 100 km and CO2 emissions of 216 g/km.

The additional gears make it possible to achieve a wider gear ratio spread between the 1st and 8th gears compared to a conventional automatic transmission. As a result, the 132kW 2.0 litre BiTDI engine works more frequently in its optimal torque band. The 8th gear has been configured as a fuel saving overdrive gear that operates at reduced engine speed.

The 2.0 litre BiTDI has a maximum torque of 420 Newton metres that is available at 1 750rpm.The top speed of 180 km/h is reached in 7th gear. It only takes 10.6 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h.
