The first quarter of the year 2011 will be seeing the Volkswagen Amarok Single Cab version. The Amarok is thought to be identical to the regular version, featuring a 2-litre diesel engine sporting 163 hp and 295 lb/ft of torque and later a 122 hp engine with 295 lb/ft of torque.

Though production won’t top 90,000 units per year, it is still better than nothing at all. Prices starting from 26,000 euros for the standard version of the Volkswagen Amarok.
