Well, friends, Volkswagen has finally gone and done it. After years of speculation and a steadily churning rumor mill, we at Elgin Volkswagen are pleased to reveal the upcoming 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, our first foray into the large crossover SUV segment. With seating for seven and a larger interior cabin than any other model in our SUV lineup, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is poised to deliver the sort of style and performance that we’ve been waiting for ages to experience for ourselves.
When the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas arrives at our Chicago-area dealership in early 2017, buyers will have the option of choosing between two outstanding engine choices. The standard offering for the Atlas will be a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated for 238 horsepower, while buyers may also upgrade to the available 3.6L VR6 engine that returns an excellent 280 horsepower. Fuel economy ratings haven’t been released just yet, but check back at Elgin Volkswagen for more details in the coming months!
|Two available engine options||All New for 2018 model year||All-new Volkswagen Digital Cockpit|
|Standard 238-hp 2.0L Turbo||Three rows of seating||8-inch touchscreen display|
|Available 280-hp 3.6L VR6||Seats up to 7 occupants||Nine available Driver Assistance features|
|Driving Mode Selection with four variable driving modes||Up to 96.8 cu.ft. of cargo volume||CarNet AppConnect|
Once inside the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, buyers are treated to an assortment of convenience and tech features that promise to impress any potential skeptics. New driver assistance features include Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control, while it has been reported that the Atlas will be the market’s only SUV to offer Automatic Post-Collision Braking.
These features are accompanied by a number of great tech amenities, such as a Fender premium audio system with twelve speakers and the new Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, which can be configured to a driver’s specific tastes. These features are joined by an 8-inch touchscreen display and the CarNet AppConnect infotainment system.
