The 2024 Volkswagen Atlas will show up this week

  • Don’t expect an electrified drivetrain.

  • This facelift should be based on the current generation.

  • Will this new face be the last one of the Atlas lineup?


Volkswagen’s Canadian wing just released this darkened image of what appears to be the new Atlas family face. Volkswagen Canada has even promised that we’ll get all the information later this week; the official unveiling is scheduled on February 9. In fact, this unveiling should be part of this year’s Chicago Auto Show, which opens its doors officially this Saturday, on February 11.

Although the photo was taken in the shadows, we can still see a new headlight arrangement at the front, as the designers seem to have positioned them vertically. The lower portion of the bumper also shows a new approach with the triangular treatment already present on the current model – and on other vehicles of the brand.

What is clear is that the more equipped liveries of the model will feature LED lighting that runs across the vehicle from left to right, while the Volkswagen badge will be illuminated.

Where it gets tricky is how different the redesigned Atlas family will be from the one that appeared on our roads in 2018. It would be very surprising if the automaker made any major changes to a vehicle that will be gone in a few years. With the electric shift announced by the Wolfsburg giant, vehicles with combustion engines will gradually be abandoned.

And since the Atlas is already available with a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine good for 235 horsepower and 258 ft-lb of torque or a naturally aspirated 3.6-litre V6 with 276 horsepower and 266 ft-lb of torque, the improvements under the hood are likely to be minimal. In fact, Volkswagen has already indicated that it won’t be using any intermediate solutions such as a hybrid or plug-in hybrid.

This new Atlas 2024 family should therefore be strongly inspired by the two variants marketed since 2018 for the Atlas or 2021 for the Atlas Cross Sport.

We’ll tell you more about it by the end of the week.
