The new Amarok is the result of a collaboration between Ford and Volkswagen. Those who have been anticipating the new Amarok should be aware that Volkswagen chose Ford’s Power Stroke diesel engine and 10-speed transmission for its midsize truck. Yes, the previous TDI V6 and 8-speed torque converter that produced more power than the Blue Oval oil burner were dropped. Is this a wise move by Volkswagen? That remains to be seen.

However, in order to demonstrate the difference between VW’s own TDI V6 and Ford’s Power Stroke V6 diesel (and thus the new VW Amarok), CarExpert staged a drag race between the old Amarok and the new Ford Ranger V6.

The turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 in the previous Amarok produced 255 horsepower (190 kilowatts) and 428 pound-feet (580 Newton-meters) of torque. It had an overboost feature that allowed the driver to access up to 268 hp (200 kW), which the Ranger does not have.

Meanwhile, the new Ranger turbo 3.0-liter V6 produces 247 hp (184 kW) but 443 lb-ft of torque (600 Nm). It could have been a close race between the old VW and the new Ranger, but the Ford has a weight advantage.

True, even with the extra passenger on the German pickup, the old Amarok was faster than the Ranger in the 1/8-mile sprint. It’s faster in most situations, especially when sprinting to 100 km/h (62 miles per hour) and crossing the finish line.

Because VW is using Ford’s powertrain in its new Amarok, the truck is expected to be slightly slower than its predecessor. However, Ford’s DNA has given the nameplate greater off-road capability than previously.
