New Volkswagen Amarok 2023 V6 Rear Reveal, Ford's Power Stroke V6 Turbo Diesel

Produced by the Ford Motor Company in South Africa, the new Amarok is getting LED taillights, stamped tailgate and some sort of V6 engine option. The most likely candidate is Ranger's Power Stroke, a single-turbo engine with 3.0 liters of displacement and plenty of torque.

In Australia, the 2023 Ford Ranger with said engine generates 247 horsepower at 3,250 rpm and 443 pound-feet (600 Nm) from 1,750 to 2,250 rpm. It's unknown if the Dearborn automaker will share the 3.0-liter EcoBoost with the German automaker, but chances are it's a big no for obvious reasons.

Volkswagen sells nothing like the Raptor series of vehicles, and Ford is unwilling to share its off-road dominance with the biggest automaker across the pond. On the other hand, the Blue Oval doesn't mind sharing four-cylinder bulges with Volkswagen. So far, we have received confirmation from a gasoline plant and some diesel. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost is likely the engine of choice for Middle Eastern markets, and the rest of the world is likely getting the 2.0-liter EcoBlue turbo diesel.

EcoWhat? EcoBlue designates a family of diesel engines, codenamed Panther by Ford engineering teams in the UK and Germany. Introduced in 2016, the best-known application is the bi-turbo version on the Ranger Raptor. Of course, single-turbo versions are also available.

In terms of gearing, the most basic Amarok powertrains are sure to get a six-speed manual. A six-speed car from the 6R family also needs to be mentioned, along with the ten-speed 10R60 and 10R80 gearboxes.
