Volkswagen Atlas SUV Engine Options

A standard 2.0L turbo V6 equips the Volkswagen Atlas SUV with 2,000 pounds of towing power at the base trim. That’s plenty for a sailboat or small trailer, but you need the optional 3.6L V6 engine upgrade to maximize the Volkswagen Atlas towing capacity. Here’ a quick look at the specs for both engines:

  • 2.0L Turbocharged DOHC 16-Valve I-4 Engine — 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque
  • Available 3.6L DOHC 24-Valve V6 Engine — 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque
