After struggling in the SUV segment with the two-row and quite expensive Touareg, Volkswagen finally exposed the competitive three-row Atlas. With this model still being brand brand-new, we do not expect any huge changes when the 2019 Atlas rolls in.
Volkswagen will invest approximately $340 million to bring the vehicle to market, in addition to roughly $900 million currently invested to broaden the plant for Atlas production. The five-passenger Atlas variant will mark the 3rd Volkswagen model put together at the Chattanooga factory, which likewise makes the Passat sedan.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Design
As a carryover, we expect no visual changes inside or out. The refreshingly brand-new body offers Volkswagen a ruggedness it’s missed in the SUV market for ages. The interior continues the refreshingly easy feel and look as the exterior, yet still brings in some of the premium features VW buyers anticipate, consisting of the offered Digital Cockpit, full leather upholstery, and more.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Features
With everything else staying the same, we anticipate the basic features to rollover too. If this shows true, try to find the 2019 Atlas to come standard with fabric seats, LED headlights, dual-zone environment 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 search for it to come standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 235 horse power and 258 pound-feet of torque. Remember that this base engine is readily available beyond the base S trim, but just 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 remain the eight-speed automated. Front-wheel drive is basic, but all-wheel drive is also offered.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Safety
In its debut year, the Atlas got the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick score– its second-highest honor. It received “Good” ratings in all 5 crash tests and a “Superior” rating in the front-crash avoidance. What kept it from getting the top ranking was its “Marginal” rating in the new headlight test. Without any changes in the works, try to find these rankings to stay the same in 2019.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Pricing & Release Date
While there’s no official release date, we expect to see the 2019 Atlas in showrooms in 2018. With no changes in store, we expect pricing to stay roughly the exact same in the new year. This would put the 2019 Atlas at $31,425 to $49,415 (location charges consisted of) depending on devices. Key rivals include the Dodge Durango, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Highlander.
