Four new Truckman hardtops have been named as official Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles UK-approved accessories for the revised 2017 Amarok double cab 4x4 pick-up. Designed at the company’s West Midlands-based headquarters, the four hardtops have been created to meet the varied needs of commercial and leisure users alike.
For commercial users and fleet managers specifying the latest Amarok, Auto Styling Truckman has launched two hardtop models; the high capacity Truckman Utility with gull wing doors and the solid sided cab-high Truckman RS. Featuring a practical wipe-clean interior, non-drilling clamp fitting and integrated spoiler, the latter combines the practicality of a commercial top with the styling of a leisure canopy. It has toughened, tinted rear door glass to keep the load bed concealed and secure.
Creating a mobile workshop in the pick-up’s load area, the Utility hardtop is becoming the one of choice for mobile technicians operating in off-highway locations. It provides essential space for racking, tools and equipment, which can be accessed through its rear and gull wing doors.
Aimed more at leisure users, the Truckman Grand is one of the most fully featured hardtops on the market. It comes complete with remote central locking, roof bars, sliding bulkhead window, automatic interior light, tinted windows and vinyl lining. Its design has also been enhanced to include a new tailgate and hidden bed seal, which gives the appearance of a cleaner line between the vehicle and the hardtop.
Last, but not least, there’s the GLS, also known as the ‘Dog Lovers Hardtop’ thanks to its sliding side and bulkhead windows which provide ventilation to the load area.
