Amarok suspension - your choice
Essentially, the Amarok Double Cab is available in two suspension versions: At the rear the standard comfort suspension consists of a 2+1 trapezoidal spring pack offering greater suspension comfort and lower noise – especially at higher vehicle speeds – and a 20kg reduction in weight.
It permits a maximum rear axle load of 1600kg at a gross vehicle weight rating of 2820kg and maximum payload of up to 938kg (depending on the model). The comfort suspension may be paired with the 4x2 rear-wheel drive or the 4MOTION version with switchable four-wheel drive.
As an alternative, the Amarok is also available in the Heavy Duty version. This version is offered together with the 4x2 rear-wheel drive or switchable 4MOTION four-wheel drive with rigid lock. This package consists of a conventional 3+2 trapezoidal spring suspension similar to those typically used in many bakkies.
Customers will benefit from its progressive rate characteristic that assures a constant high level of driving comfort whether the vehicle is empty or loaded. It also offers a high overload safety factor and suspension reserve when travelling on poor backroads.
In this version, the gross vehicle weight rating increases to 3040kg and the maximum rear axle load to 1860kg. As mentioned, this gives the Amarok a payload potential of up to 1137kg - another new top value compared to the direct competition.
