Your 2022 VW Atlas Powertrain Details

A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 235 horsepower offers a fantastic entry point in power for the 2022 VW Atlas. Think about those numbers for a second. When popular European SUVs with V-8s entered the North American market in the late '80s, 150 to about 190 horsepower was considered a revelation. You now get substantially more power with half the cylinders. Front-wheel drive is standard, though all-wheel drive is an option (and standard on higher trims). Each configuration pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic shift. Hungry for more power? Find it in the 3.6-liter V-6 with 276 horsepower.
