Amarok V6

But if you’re really looking for tough, an uncompromising, resilient, powerful, clever kind of tough. Then look no further. Because tough comes from within.

Electronic Stability Program (ESP)2 and Off-road ABS

ESP helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing understeer or oversteer. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Programme will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine’s power output to correct the problem.

Off-road ABS reduces the stopping distance on loose surfaces at the press of a button. When this function is activated the braking interval is increased; the wheels lock up in a controlled manner so that material from the ground (such as gravel or sand) build up in front of each wheel, reducing the stopping distance.

Multi-collision brake

When airbag sensors detect a collision, this system applies the brakes to slow the vehicle to 10km/h, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over at any time.
