    Only the B6, gas type. You also get B4, oil type, that is not serviceable.

    Re: 190KW Amarok

    Fuel consumption on the remapped 3.0 is almost the same than that of a 2.0 Amarok. In town it's quite a bit more, but on the highway it's actually a bit better.

    For me the added power won't by...

    Just keep in mind that it is nowhere near a rival for the ride comfort you have now.

    It is very good for a d/cab, but nowhere near my wife's X5 though.

    Not sure.

    He took it to Kosie Swanepoel, who fitted a Unichip to his previous 2.0. As the Unichip don't work on the 3.0, Kosie used a 3 party to do the mapping.

    My dad fitted his 17" wheels from his 2.0 when he bought his current V6 in 2018. It has 265/65/17 tyres and works no issues at all.

    He has the stock suspension as well.

    For me, 140kw is way too little. My wife's X5 3.0D makes 195kw and that is not enough. See, different people have different needs.

    Re: 190KW Amarok

    This is where OEMs make the big money.

    You have to ask yourself, how much more does it cost to make a 2.0 4cyl engine to produce 180kw instead of 135kw. That is the difference between a 520i and...

    No, keep your current V6.

    Auto 4x4 is more thirsty than other Amaroks, mainly due to being permanent 4x4. At 130kp/h I saw an average of 9.5L/100km, while manual owners saw closer to 8L/100km.
