2022 VW Atlas MPG: Engine & Drivetrain

When it comes to VW Atlas gas mileage factors, there are two engines to choose from: the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo engine with Tiptronic and a 276-hp 3.6L V6 upgrade. These options both come with front-wheel drive and come paired with an 8-speed automatic Tiptronic transmission for Tysons Corner drivers.

The Tiptronic system provides Springfield drivers the option to switch between automatic and manual modes with the touch of a button. You can get all of the satisfaction of driving a manual transmission without the hassle involved with a clutch.

You can get the most efficient VW Atlas MPG with the front-wheel drive configuration because it only sends power to the front axle. Alexandria that upgrade to the V6 engine or 4MOTION® all-wheel drive trade some efficiency for an enhanced performance. Look below for more information:

  • 276-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo: EPA-estimated 21 city/25 highway*
  • 235-hp 4MOTION® 2.0L turbo: EPA-estimated 20 city/24 highway*
  • 276-hp 3.6L V6: EPA-estimated 18 city/24 highway*
  • 276-hp 4MOTION® 3.6L V6: EPA-estimated 17 city/23 highway*

If you’re looking to tow something heavier than some standard motorcycles or jet skies, the optional tow package is what you need. With this package, the VW Atlas has a 5,000 pounds of towing capacity with either available engine. Without the towing package, both options can tow up to 2,000 pounds.
