Volkswagen Atlas SUV: Engine Options

There are two available engines for the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas that contribute to the VW Atlas towing capability:

  • 2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder Engine: The base Atlas S model comes bearing this engine. This engine generates 235-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.6L V6 Engine: All other Atlas trim levels come with this engine, which outputs 276-hp and 266 lb-ft of torque.

An 8-speed automatic transmission is paired with both engines. Though front-wheel drive is standard on this model, you can opt for 4MOTION® all-wheel drive for added power. In addition to the VW Atlas towing capacity, you can have the added peace of mind of AWD.

Volkswagen Atlas SUV: Utility

In addition to impressive tow ratings and a comfy interior, the 2019 Atlas also has ample cargo space and excellent utility across all trim levels. Behind the second row, you’ll have 20.6 cubic feet of cargo space. When the second-row seats folded down, you’ll have 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space for hauling groceries or luggage around Fenton. Volkswagen Atlas payload capacity ranges from 1,396 to 1,495 pounds. Standout utility features include:

  • Four trunk tie-down hooks
  • Under-floor storage with felt lining in cargo area
  • 60/40 split-folding second row
  • Grocery hook in cargo area
  • Third row with 50/50 split-folding seats and easy entry

The Atlas cargo space dimensions give it a significant edge over the otherwise-competitive Honda Pilot. The Atlas VW towing is not the only reason to put this SUV at the top of your list.
