Performance Features of the Volkswagen Atlas

The Volkswagen Atlas is a popular midsize family SUV that also offers a powerful engine capable of towing heavy loads. Pack the spacious cargo bay with all of your gear and still have plenty of power left over to tow along a trailer loaded with ATVs or jet skis for a weekend of fun.

Tow up to 5,000 pounds with the Atlas's 2.0-liter turbo engine with 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The Atlas also offers a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The eight-speed transmission is automatic, but comes with Volkswagen's Tiptronic system that, when engaged, allows for shifting between gears manually.

Use the Atlas's 4Motion system to select between four driving modes that each correspond to specific weather or road conditions. Rough mode is for mountainous terrain, Dry mode is perfect for those sunny days, Snowy and Rainy mode both allocate greater resources to keep the Atlas gripping the road.
