2022 Volkswagen Taos Driving on Road
There’s a lot to love about driving a Volkswagen Atlas on the Vineland roads, from its sporty handling to its roomy interior cabin. But what if you’re looking to haul cargo behind your SUV, whether you’re commuting to a worksite or going on a family road trip? The VW Atlas has you covered, with a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds! 

 

 

However, the VW Atlas towing capacity varies based on which of the available engines you choose. The Atlas also includes a lot of helpful interior features if you’d prefer to carry your cargo inside the cabin and make use of the 1,425-pound payload capacity. The team at Volkswagen of Salem County has more information on the VW Atlas towing package in the guide below!

2022 Volkswagen Atlas Engine Options

When picking out a 2022 Volkswagen Atlas, you can choose between two available engines—a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, and a 3.6L V6. As with anything, there are trade-offs to consider for each engine. The V6 engine offers more powerful performance specs, while the 4-cylinder gets better fuel economy in the city and on the highway.

Both engines come with front-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission, with the option of upgrading to 4MOTION® all-wheel drive. However, if you’re after the maximum VW Atlas towing capacity, you’ll want to go with the V6–the 4-cylinder has a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. Here are the details:

2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder Engine: 

  • 235 hp
  • 258 lb-ft of torque
  • 2,000-pound towing capacity
  • 21 City/24 Highway MPG EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy

3.6L V6 Engine: 

  • 276 hp
  • 266 lb-ft of torque
  • 5,000-pound towing capacity
  • 17 City/23 Highway MPG EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy

2022 Volkswagen Atlas Interior Features

The VW Atlas interior has a maximum seating capacity of seven passengers and a maximum cargo capacity of 96.8 cubic feet. You’ll be able to carry a full load of passengers and cargo without ever having to sacrifice room for one or the other!

If you’d prefer to carry your cargo inside your SUV rather than behind it, you’re in luck! The VW Atlas towing package also includes plenty of interior features designed to make carrying cargo around Millville as smooth and convenient as possible. Here are some of our favorite interior utilities included on the VW Atlas:

  • 60/40 split-folding second row
  • Third row with easy entry and 50/50 split-folding seats
  • Under-floor storage with felt lining in the cargo area
  • Four trunk tie-down hooks
