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!

  1. Truly, having done some Amarok offroad training, and having been made aware of just how exceptionally well the Amarok's ABS/ESP system operates, even in the OFF ROAD function, AND compared to other makes, sorry Toyamato fans, in its class NOTHING beats the Amarok. The ONLY thing that beats the living daylights out of this South African fellow is this…

    2019/2020…. VW Australia sorts their loyals with the V6 in full manual 4X4/ TransferCase/ LowRange version…. They said its what they wanted and Volkswagen worked the magic!

    2020/2021…. in AFRICA VW South Africa takes even the extremely trustworthy 2L 4Motion manual (IOW with low range) off the market and reckons, "Nah, SouthAfrica only gets the V6 Auto 4Motion. Its what they want" . Huh!? Not even a bucket load of expletives will suffice to describe this utter stupidity.

    VW South Africa, you just continue to poke your loyals in the eye! …and VW SA, you have been doing so since the days of the first Touaregs!

  2. you gotta put the hilux in power mode then put it in s1 then put your foot on the brake and give 2 rpm to launch then at 5 rpm shift to s2 then shift again at 5000rpm

  3. Drag race for pickups? The next video idea- try two sports cars competing uphill in the snowy mountains with summer tires on.

  4. I don’t understand these cars why would anyone want to buy them rather go for a van as a worker in any kind of job fucka truck this ain’t 1900’s anymore

  5. Hilux have never made a good everyday ute, there new model is absolute rubbish, their design team need to be shot and replaced

  6. The old Nissan Navara was the only car that gave Amarok a run for its money.
    Latest Navara Models is the slowest now… 😢🤤
