The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas will start at $30,500

Last week, Volkswagen revealed pricing for its new 2018 Atlas, a seven-seater SUV that is officially the biggest model that the German automaker has brought to the States. The Atlas, which was unveiled in October of last year, will be offered with two powerful engine options (each paired to an eight-speed automatic) and in several trim levels. Though sporting German heritage, the Atlas is “all-American,” as it is produced at VW’s Chattanooga plant.

See our 2018 Volkswagen photo gallery below.

If you’re thinking about driving home in a new Atlas, you’ll have your choice of either the four-cylinder turbocharged and direct-injection 2.0-liter TSI engine or the 3.6-liter VR6® engine. The former makes 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque when fueled by premium gasoline, while the larger of the two engines generates an even more impressive 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt to marry the 3.6-liter powertrain to an available 4Motion® all-wheel-drive system.
