    Went from Toyota to VW.
    Will never bad mouth Toyota. My Fortuner served me well for 10 years.
    But man what a beast this v6 is.
    Totally in a different class!

    Many congrats, love that colour.

    Might be my next car in 2 years time, before the Ford / VW partnership ruins the Amarok.

    To add, remember to press the Off road button, whenever you are not on tarmac.

    It really transform the car on gravel roads.

    For one you will stop 40% faster on a dirt road. Also when you vehicle stall on a up hill you abs will control the back roll untill you are level again. Just dont switch the vehicle off.

    Welcome to the club, Blackie. My Ravenna Blue V6 Extreme (just to make some guys jealous ) hit 10,000km yesterday. Loving it, although I haven't really ventured off-road yet!

    Lots of intentions - I have installed a Bushtech canopy and plan to kit it out as a bit of a camper as soon as I get some spare cash.

    My son and I did the "Amarok Experience" around October last year, organised by VW in Uitenhage. Three days between PE, Oudtshoorn and St. Francis. Had the chance to play in the dunes near St. Francis. Great fun and a welcome introduction to the vehicle.

    Enjoy!

    Also changes the auto box shift patterns.

    Really, drive a bumpy gravel road with the off-road activated and then without. You will not believe the difference.

    I am not a gravel road expert by any means, but have never felt so confident and at ease when I had the Amarok.

    I should have pichas by tonight!

    Picking up a 2018 extreme today!
    This will be the first time in 26 years(excluding a few months) that there is not a Toyota or two in my garage. This is bitter sweet moment.

    Well, I will tell you if I am still sad, when that blue monster is in my garage.
