Only available on the 2WD Amarok cab-chassis, the Amarok Runner debuts alongside a Crafter van Runner, with both joining the existing Caddy van and Transporter van in the Runner range.
In the case of the Amarok, the Runner special edition is identified by unique 'Runner' badging/decals, as well as an impressive list of features, including ESP, hill hold control, 'climatic' air conditioning and daytime running lights, as standard.
Designed with regular short-haul couriers in mind, all Runner Special Editions also feature the performance and efficiency of Volkswagen's TDI and TSI engines. The Amarok 2WD Runner features a 1303kg payload capacity.
Pricing is listed at $26,990 drive-away for the Amarok Runner Special Edition, but only 90 vehicles will be offered with the Runner package Australia-wide.
All Runner special editions are available now at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles dealerships, and come with a three-year, unlimited kilometre warranty. At time of writing, there are no plans to offer the Runner package on the 4WD Amarok or dual cab models.
