Best pick-up truck for towing: Volkswagen Amarok
The best tow pick-up for 2018 is the Volkswagen Amarok Highline 3.0 V6 TDI
A fresh category for 2018, the first winner of the new Pick-Up truck tow car award is the Volkswagen Amarok.
Undergoing assessment in Highline trim, with the more potent 221bhp 3.0-litre V6 TDI engine under the bonnet, the VW Amarok was described by judges as “anything but rough and ready,” highlighting its performance and stability on the hill course route as particularly impressive.
With a maximum torque figure of 550Nm, the Amarok boasts a maximum braked towing weight of 3,100kg, while a rear load space of 2.5 square metres means it boasts one of the largest load beds of any double cab pick-up on sale in Britain. It’s available with an electric tow bar too, priced at £225 on the options list.
