DRAG RACE: Volkswagen Amarok 3,0 V6 4Motion TDI vs Mercedes-Benz X350d 4Matic

#DragRace #Volkswagen #MercedesBenz
Both Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen have produced powerful 3,0-litre V6 turbodiesel bakkies. We want to find out which of the two are faster in a quarter-mile drag race. The X350d has a higher power output but it's a bit heavier than the lower-powered Amarok.

    @Brendan Jarvis Ah yes yet again you are clueless, the Amarok is designed to not need a rear airbag as much as the other dual cabs do, get under the Amarok and have a look, there is a reason that i got % stars without them. Yes they are not made for it but yet the Amarok can do it better than most cars and or any X-class.

    @Brendan Jarvis the V6 has had disc brakes since launch so it's not just know, you called me an expert not me, I said I'm an expert compared tou you 😂... Yes and you will still lose, as the detuned version of the Amarok whipped the floor with the x-class not even the 180Kw 580nm version with the 200kw overboost function..😌 Sure I'll be here if you need some education on car related matters or even just a good lesson 👍🏼🙃

  • Brendan Jarvis

    Jaco Ras Sure ya do Jaco...Just because I didn’t realise the V6 now has disc brakes which I clearly had the balls to admit, that makes you an expert 😂 My point is that Dual Cabs are not really built for drag or circuit racing now are they... Oh by the way as per my first comment my money still on the XClass if they did race on a circuit 😉 Have a nice day and I will be sure to come back to you if I need your Expert Advice in the future 👎🏻
