    Default New Shape Amarok only in 2020

    According to this interview with Volkswagen Australia director of commercial vehicles, Carlos Santos, the next generation Amarok is only due in 2020.
    That is spot on with VW's 10 year life cycle for its commercial vehicles.

    no real surprise if you follow the trend in replacing models by the company. Passenger around 7 years and commercial 10 years.

    Not if VW continue with their theme on what they classify as commercial vehicles, of which the Amarok is one. Instead of a big facelift after say 3-4 years, they make small incremental changes each year, and that's exactly what they have been doing with the Amarok. For 2015, there was a new steering wheel. That's it. For 2014, there were quite a few changes inside (new radio, changed speedo/rev dials, satellite controls on steering wheel & Bluetooth added etc).


    I think that we will continue to see small changes until 2020.
