There isn’t much the 2021 VW Atlas won’t be able to do for you

How powerful is the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas? 

Volkswagen has produced some of the most iconic automobiles in the history of the automotive industry. In the 21st century, the automaker has turned its attention to crossover SUVs, and they have produced some great ones over the years, including the VW Atlas. So, how powerful is the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas? Well, regardless of which trim grade a Weimer Volkswagen customer chooses to take home, they will be getting a three-row crossover SUV with plenty of performance. Buyers will be able to choose between two powertrain options, and for the new model year, both engines can be attached to either the front- or all-wheel-drive system offered by VW. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect to see at our showroom.

2021 Atlas Performance Specs 

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas can be outfitted with a turbocharged 2.0-liter, inline four-cylinder engine that will make 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This is the first year that trim grades equipped with the base engine will offer the 4MOTION® all-wheel-drive system on most trim grades. Additionally, potential buyers can also choose a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter, V-6 engine, producing up to 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.

Fuel Economy Scores 

Even though every version of the 2021 VW Atlas found at the Weimer Volkswagen showroom offers some of the strongest performance specs in its class, the manufacturer has managed to provide that power without sacrificing fuel economy. Here is what a potential 2021 Atlas owner can expect to see in terms of fuel efficiency scores: 

Turbo., 2.0-L, 4-Cyl. 
FWD: 21 mpg (city)/24 mpg (hwy.) 
AWD: 20 mpg (city)/24 mpg (hwy.) 

3.6-L, V-6 
FWD: 17 mpg (city)/23 mpg (hwy.) 
AWD: 16 mpg (city)/22 mpg (hwy.) 

How much can the 2021 VW Atlas tow? 

Without question, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas will be among the most passenger- and cargo-friendly crossover SUVs in its class. However, there will be a few times when the item that needs to be moved won’t fit in the three-row crossover SUV’s cavernous interior. Models of the 2021 Atlas with the turbocharged four-cylinder engine can tow up to 2,000 pounds. Buyers choosing a 2021 Atlas with the V-6 can pull up to 5,000 pounds when the vehicle and trailer are properly equipped. 

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is available at the Weimer Volkswagen showroom right now. Customers can schedule a test drive today by calling, 833-935-0089.
