2021 Volkswagen Atlas in Turnersville, NJ

The VW Atlas has definitely made its mark on the automotive industry. As a three-row SUV with a nice mix of rugged durability, elegance, and modern amenities, it appeals to a wide variety of Turnersville customers. While previous model years of the Atlas have done well in the market, Volkswagen has made some changes to the 2021 Atlas that will make this SUV even more desirable.

Updates to the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas

First of all, the Atlas has gotten some noticeable exterior changes. The front and rear bumpers have both been reshaped, stretching out the overall length of the SUV by three inches. Now, there are more angular headlights, along with chrome highlights that showcase the sporty frame of the SUV. The VW logo has been tweaked, and it' featured on the exterior of the 2021 Atlas and on its steering wheel.


What will please a lot of Washington Township drivers is that the V6 and the four-cylinder versions will both get all-wheel drive as an available option. Previously, an Atlas with a four-cylinder engine was limited to having a front-wheel-drive system. Like before, the engines are matched to eight-speed automatic transmissions. The 3.6-liter V6 can output 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, while the 2.0-liter four-cylinder will give you 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Both of these engines are solidly built and quite capable.



In terms of technology, it seems like there are always innovations being made, and the customers get to benefit from advancements in the field. In the case of the 2021 VW Atlas, people now have access to the Car-Net app. Through this app, someone can use a portable device to lock/unlock doors, honk the horn, pinpoint the vehicle's location, and start the engine remotely.

An additional upgrade related to technology has to do with the driver-assist systems available. New for 2021 is the option to get a program that can help in traffic jams as well as one that can read road signs and display that information to you.

2021 Volkswagen Atlas Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to popular questions that our team at Prestige Volkswagen near Philadelphia, PA gets asked about the VW Atlas.

Which VW Atlas has a sunroof?

A sunroof can be great for letting fresh air in on roadtrips around Sicklerville. A panoramic sunroof is standard on the SEL trims, and it is available on all of the SE trims.

Is a VW Atlas good in snow?

The 2021 VW Atlas can perform well in the snow, especially if you get a four-wheel-drive version. 4MOTION is the name that Volkswagen has given its four-wheel-drive system. 4MOTION features a system called Active Control, and it consists of a dial that you can use to select different modes. In Snow Mode, the VW's engine will upshift earlier than it usually does; this keeps it in a lower RPM range. It's ideal for preventing the wheels from getting too much power too quickly.

What is the technology package in the VW Atlas?

The technology package is either available or standard on all trims, except for the base model. With the technology package, you'll get a hands-free liftgate, parking distance sensors, remote start, and adaptive cruise control, all of which can be very convenient to use. As you move up in trim, you start to get many more features, such as a Fender premium audio system, overhead view camera, and integrated navigation.
