Volkswagen Australia has announced pricing for the longer Amarok XL and XXL models.
Opting for the longer tray versions adds between $10,595 and $21,995 to the overall cost of the Amarok.
In regular form, the Amarok measures in at 5254mm long with a 3095mm wheelbase leading to a 1555mm load length.
The Amarok XL increases the size to 5564mm long with a 3405mm wheelbase. The change results in a 1865mm tray.
Moving to the Amarok XXL sees the 4x4 ute grow to 5904mm long with a 3745mm wheelbase. The load length is an American pick-up rivalling 2205mm.
The work required to extend the Amarok is completed locally by Adaptive Manufacturing in South Australia, with permission granted under license from Veth Automotive (Netherlands).
Amarok XL and XXL variants also get a reprogrammed Electronic Stability Control designed to compensate for the longer wheelbase.
Volkswagen says the conversion maintains the Amarok’s five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty.
The conversion is available for all four- and six-cylinder Amarok models with either a manual or automatic transmission.
In terms of overall pricing, using the entry-level Amarok cab chassis ($38,490) will see buyers nudge the $50,000 mark for the XL, while the high-spec V6 Ultimate will costs almost $95,000 in XXL guise which lines it up against the V8-powered Ram 1500.
The conversion doesn’t look as neat as longer tray models direct from the factory such as the SsangYong Musso XLV and LDV T60 Mega Tub.
Both the Amarok XL and XXL are on-sale now.
