The Volkswagen Amarok has retained its title as Best Pick-up Truck at the What Car? Awards 2020.

The winning model, the Amarok Trendline 3.0-litre TDI V6 4Motion, once again won over the hearts and minds of the What Car? judging panel with its unique blend of on- and off-road abilities and all-round quality.

Commenting on the result, editor of What Car? Steve Huntingford said: “Just because a pick-up truck is expected to lead a hard-working life, that doesn’t mean quality in other areas must be compromised, and the Volkswagen Amarok presents the most compelling all-round package in the class. In fact, the Amarok even gives conventional sports utility vehicles a run for their money.”

My friends call me a glomad (a global nomad lest you don’t get it). That’s a particularly apt word, because I am always trawling all corners of the globe, looking for stories. As a result, I have slept in some seriously strange places – on a bed of ice in the Arctic circle, on the floor in a traditional Japanese hotel, on the sand dunes in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan … and even on the floor of a Thai cargo ship. Mostly however I tend to sleep on aircraft (if I had a dog, he would bark at me when I eventually come home). I am passionate about trucks, cars, travel, food, wine, people and hugs – so I write about all these things. Except the hugs.
