Volkswagen introduced the Amarok Dark Label nearly a year ago but the company has finally announced plans to offer it in the United Kingdom.

Set to go on sale on September 22nd, the Amarok Dark Label features a two-tone exterior with extended wheel arches, tinted windows and a front skid plate. The model has also been equipped with matte black side steps, tinted taillights and 18-inch alloy wheels with a black finish.

The cabin also receives a modest makeover that includes Alcantara upholstery and special velour floor mats. The truck also features a multi-functional steering wheel, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped gear knob and an infotainment system with GPS navigation.

Power is provided by a 2.0-liter BiTDI engine that produces 180 PS (132 kW) and up to 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque. It can be connected to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Models equipped with the latter gearbox also feature a number of fuel saving tweaks including a start/stop system, regenerative braking and low rolling-resistance tires.

Only 300 units will be available in the United Kingdom and pricing starts at £26,125 (OTR).
