Camper vans are more fashionable than ever, there is no doubt about that, although it is not so true that the price of a camper van and all terrain vehicle can be very high. For this reason, at Volkswagen, where they have nothing but the most powerful California, they decided to offer an alternative based on their pick-up, thus giving life to the Volkswagen Amarok Pan American and a different vision of camping in our car.
On the occasion of the recent Caravan Salon held in Düsseldorf, Germany, Volkswagen showed some of its future developments in the camper segment. Although the new California T7 that will arrive in 2024 takes center stage in the stand, the truth is that we cannot ignore the presence of a camper Amarok that will delight those looking for something different and more affordable than it which is more affordable side. road.

Thanks to this kit, the Volkswagen Amarok Panamericana has become a perfect car for excursions or off-road expeditions, allowing us to sleep in the car, but also to carry everything we need to camp in large numbers. day.
Given the choice of this pick-up as a base, the Volkswagen Amarok Panamericana is presented as an excellent off-road driving camper. We are looking at a truck powered by a 3.0 V6 turbodiesel engine with 241 HP and 600 Nm, which is coupled to a 10-speed automatic transmission per torque converter and which uses four-wheel drive with reduction gear as standard, plus the possibility of locking the rear differential. All this is combined with good off-road performance, the use of 4×4 wheels and generous ground clearance.
