Design sketches for the latest Amarok update have been revealed by Volkswagen and the brand is saying that it will go on sale in the UK later this year.

The regrettably non-American, though not at all un-American, Amarok gets new styling all over, with a grille that’s more in line with current VW design language. The body meanwhile, features the chunky lines of a capable off-roader.

VW say they were aiming  for a more athletic design to emphasize the power of their pick-up. The truck will be 5.25 meters long (17.2 ft) and 2.23 meters wide (7.3 ft), with 2.52 sq meters of cargo capacity in the bed (27 sq ft).

The new version will also come with a modified instrument panel, which features the strong horizontal lines that are fast becoming a VW staple.
