Volkswagen Atlas: MPG Per Engine

When equipped with its base 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the Volkswagen Atlas produces an EPA-estimated 21 city and 24 highway MPG.1 All models come with a 19.5-gallon fuel tank.

The optional 4MOTION® with Active Control all-wheel-drive system sends more power to the wheels and works overtime to give you an extra push to get past tough terrain. This extra work alters the fuel efficiency numbers, as it cranks out an EPA-estimated 20 city and 24 highway MPG.

Then you’ve got the available 3.6L VR6® engine that gives an EPA-estimated 17 city and 23 highway MPG. This has an optional all-wheel-drive counterpart that offers an EPA-estimated 16 city and 22 highway MPG.

VW Atlas: Performance

The engineers at Volkswagen managed to construct a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder gas engine that pumps out 235 horsepower. The 3.6L VR6® engine is available for those who have an itch for more power than the 4-cylinder engine can produce.

This VR6® engine on the VW Atlas manages to churn out a robust 276 horsepower – those are a lot of horses galloping and a lot of pistons firing. So, similar to the 4-cylinder engine, you can understand why the MPG stats are what they are.
