More About 2018 Volkswagen Atlas Towing

The new Volkswagen Atlas is particularly impressive for its ability to bring along up to 5,000 lbs. with rugged durability while offering passengers a plush interior space to enjoy. The 4MOTION with Active Control all-wheel drive system delivers power to all four wheels to make sure you have the most traction possible across road conditions and gives you four weather modes to select from to make bringing a trailer even easier. The engine works with an 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport Mode which gives you smooth gear transitions and allows you to haul your heavier cargo with ease. Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert also helps you tow a trailer by letting you know when a vehicle approaches your blind spot with an alert in the appropriate side view mirror for added safety.
