After having a hard time in the SUV sector with the two-row and rather expensive Touareg, Volkswagen finally revealed the competitive three-row Atlas. With this model still being brand new, we do not expect any big changes when the 2019 Atlas coming in.
Volkswagen will invest roughly $340 million to bring the vehicle to market, in addition to roughly $900 million already invested to expand the plant for Atlas production. The five-passenger Atlas version will mark the 3rd Volkswagen model put together at the Chattanooga factory, which also makes the Passat sedan.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Design
As a carryover, we anticipate no visual changes inside or out. The refreshingly new body gives Volkswagen a durability it’s missed out on in the SUV market for ages. The interior continues the refreshingly basic look and feel as the exterior, yet still brings in a few of the premium features VW purchasers expect, consisting of the available Digital Cockpit, complete leather upholstery, and more.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Features
With whatever else staying the exact same, we anticipate the basic features to rollover too. If this proves true, try to find the 2019 Atlas to come basic with fabric seats, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and more.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Engine
We likewise anticipate no changes under the 2019 Atlas’ hood, so try to find it to come basic with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 235 horse power and 258 pound-feet of torque. Keep in mind that this base engine is offered beyond the base S trim, however only by unique factory order. The optional engine will stay a 3.6-liter V6 with 276 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission in the 2019 Atlas will stay the eight-speed automated. Front-wheel drive is basic, but all-wheel drive is also readily available.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Safety
In its debut year, the Atlas got the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick score– its second-highest honor. It got “Good” scores in all five crash tests and a “Superior” rating in the front-crash avoidance. What kept it from getting the leading score was its “Marginal” rating in the new headlight test. With no changes in the works, try to find these scores to remain the very same in 2019.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Pricing & Release Date
While there’s no official release date, we anticipate to see the 2019 Atlas in display rooms in 2018. Without any changes in shop, we anticipate pricing to stay roughly the exact same in the new year. This would put the 2019 Atlas at $31,425 to $49,415 (destination costs included) depending on devices. Secret competitors include the Dodge Durango, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Highlander.
