2021 Volkswagen Atlas Engine Specs

2021 Volkswagen Atlas Horsepower

2021 Volkswagen Atlas Specs and Performance

Full-size SUVs are like the offensive lineman of the highway: commanding, flexible, and full of hard-charging prowess. The 2021 VW Atlas adopts these qualities while removing the excess. The result is a family SUV that moves with accuracy and grace.

Underneath its aerodynamic frame sits a 3.6L V6 engine. Able to pump 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, it bolts off the line and keeps on charging. Paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode, it seamlessly audibles from a short run to a long pass.

Drivers who value efficiency without sacrificing power can opt for the 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine. It produces 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of road-gripping torque.

From muddy fields to snowy backroads, its 4MOTION® with Active Control system plants a foot in the turf and keeps you charging forward. Able to adjust on the fly, its four distinct drive modes can be accessed with the turn of a dial.

2021 Volkswagen Atlas Towing Capacity

Big families often come with big toys. That’s why VW constructed the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas with 20-inch tires and a lightweight unibody construction. This helps you tow up to 5,000 pounds, putting you in square competition with a small pickup.

I had a great experience with Faulkner VW in Mechanicsburg on the purchase of my new Golf R. In an era where most dealerships are taking advantage of customers by charging ridiculous mark-ups over MSRP, it's very nice to see that are folks who prioritize their clients and recognize that they are a valued part of the community they do business in. This is why Faulkner customers always come back. The entire process was great. Everyone was professional, polite and responsive. Highest scores!

Angie was the best sales lady: I am not the easiest to work with, and she knew exactly how to make the car buying experience AMAZING! The Faulkner team: Jake, Angie, Mike and others were hands down the best. I would definitely recommend them a thousand percent.

By far the best dealership experience. Amber did an incredible job, very easy to communicate with and answered all questions within minutes. They value your time and had me out in under an hour and a half with my brand new car. Will gladly drive another 230 miles in the future just to buy from them. Absolutely incredible experience. Thank you again
