New Toyota Hilux v VW Amarok: DRAG RACE
Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Who’s ready for a Toyota vs Volkswagen pickup truck showdown?! We’ve got the new Hilux going up against the Amarok!

So how do the stats for these two compare? Well starting with the all-new Hilux, it’s powered by a 2.8-litre 4 cylinder diesel which can produce 204hp and 500Nm of torque. It weighs around 2.1 tonnes, and when new, will set you back about £40,000.

As for the Volkswagen, well that’s powered by a 3-litre V6 diesel, and as a result, it can put down 258hp and 580Nm of torque. It’s slightly heavier than the Toyota, at 2.2 tonnes, and it also costs slightly more, coming in at £43,000.

So the VW clearly has more power, but will the extra weight drag it down? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    The reason the gearbox in the sports mode said 4th was because it is limiting the maximum gear not selecting what gear you want it to be in. It seems that sell Toyotas automatics work it was the same in my 2006 Toyota kluger.

    I love how they tell you who is going to win right at the start by giving you the specs so you can do a quick calc on the power to weight ratio and know who the winner will be straight off.

    Chevrolet Colorado vs vw Amarok vs Ford ranger raptor please🥺🥺


    So it says in fourth cause Toyota’s sports mode is likes to lock in 4th, it’s actually starting at the lowest gear but won’t shift beyond any gear indicated. So if you put it in sport and it indicates 4th, you can select 3rd and it will redline and shift only via three gears. Don’t know if I made sense there. Edit. S4 redline and shifts automatically through 1-4 S3 redline and shifts automatically via 1-3 And so on.

    Yeah but by the time the Amarok has done 200,000Km you will be wishing it was someone else's about 90,000Km ago, when the local dealer charges $2,500 for a timing belt service, & $2,500 at the next service to replace the brakes.
