2018 VW Atlas: A Powerful Exterior

In Greek mythology, the muscular Atlas was responsible for holding up the skies for all eternity. That took plenty of muscle, and the 2018 VW Atlas has its own chiseled exterior to match. With creased lines running down the front and the sides, this SUV has an undoubtedly muscular build.

The aggressive looks of the VW Atlas are reinforced by functionality. The available hands-free power liftgate makes it easy to access the cargo bay when your hands are full-just kick your foot under the rear bumper with the key fob in your pocket. Also, the standard roof rails make it easy to bring a kayak or bike along for the ride.

Advanced Technology Features

Inside the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, you'll find the technology to keep everyone along for the ride occupied and comfortable. The available Climatronic® tri-zone automatic climate control offers three different zones for temperature control: one each for the driver, the front passenger, and the entire second- and third-row cabin.

Meanwhile, the VW Car-Net® infotainment system can provide entertainment for the whole ride. On the base 6.5-inch touchscreen, you can integrate your iPhone or Android device via standard Apply CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ features. Just plug in your phone, and you can access and play your own personal music library!

Impressive Performance Specs

You have two engines to pick from in the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. The base engine, a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder, puts out up to 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. That's plenty of power for all your around-town driving, but if you want faster highway acceleration, the 3.6L V6 (276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque) will put a bit more pep in your step.

The VW Atlas is ready for any road, especially when equipped with available 4MOTION® all-wheel drive (AWD). With this drivetrain, you can use a dial to choose between four different AWD modes (dry, rainy, snowy, and rough) to optimize your drive. Rainy could be ideal for those wet coastal roads, and Rough is great for light off-road terrain.
