Hi guys, just waiting for my flight in hannover airport in Germany so thought I'd share some pictures of the models we can't get in NA.
Sorry pics are big, editing on mobile phones is too long winded

Very Nice! Yeah, it would be great if we could get that in North America.:)

If there is anyway to resize the pictures, that would very helpful. Even on my 22" monitors they don't even come close to fitting.;)

Can you get these in Canada?

Nope...

Useless tiny little bed. What's the point of a truck with that? It is basically a jacked up sedan with the trunk lid missing.

Still, if they offered a regular cab long bed version, I'm in. :)

Towing doesn't need a long bed. I'd expect a vehicle like that to take a class IV hitch.

You'd be able to haul DH mountain bikes in that fine too.

Wish I had a 60" wide monitor.

The longest bed on the regular cab Amarok is 2855 mm long.
The longest bed on the DC is 2205 mm. (same as the short-wheelbase single cab)

Here's your SWB SC:

The BED is over NINE FEET long??? That does not sound right. Wikipedia shows the longest bed (on a model called "XXL") to be 7'3", which sounds about right, and would be what I would want, with the single cab.

But we won't ever get them here, so it won't matter.

I've never seen the single cab version before. That is sharp little truck. Love it.

There are three wheelbases for the Amarok, Standard (3095mm), XL (3405mm) and XXL (3745mm). -> XXL adds 2' of wheelbase.

The Standard has a 2205mm bed with the SC and a 1555mm bed with the DC.
-> the shortest Amarok already has a 7'3" bed with the SC. Going XXL adds 2' obviously, so it's a bit over 9 ft.

Doesn't matter for Europeans either, because it looks like they discontinoued the single cab for the European market when the Amarok went all-V6.
Going XXL on a DC makes it have the SC's standard bed, so you can absolutely have an Amarok DC XXL with a 7'3" bed...

I wish I didn't know the Amarok came in all those configurations. I hate the short bed pickups and every Amarok I've seen was a double cab, short bed so I've never really wanted one. I would get a doublecab with a 6' bed. Its amazing to me that with all of the pickup trucks on the roads in the US that there isn't a business case for them to build and sell them here. But I do trust that VW has evaluated it and determined it doesn't pencil out.

I guess they don't want to risk selling it because it's too wide to be a Ranger/Tacoma/Colorado competitor (comfortably more than 4' between the wheel arches) but not quite as large as the current 1500 trucks.

So, like 99% of pickemup trucks sold in North America today? They'd be fine, as long as they can convince urbanites who can't even conceive of an actual working truck that their peni will be 6 inches longer.

The wife and I just got back in the states from visiting her fam in Russia and those Amaroks are cool looking trucks!
