Volkswagen Teases 2021 Atlas with Sketches

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas won’t hit showrooms until May, but the German manufacturer released some sketches to help us wait.

  • 2021 Volkswagen Atlas to get standard AWD
  • Will get a mid-cycle refresh
  • To be unveiled at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show

Just last week we were revealing the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas would ditch the FWD to be offered in AWD as standard, in Canada. Today, the carmaker released some sketches about the changes in design coming on their three-row SUV.

The refreshed Atlas will feature a lot of styling cues found on the upcoming five-seat version of the VUS, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. We’re talking about a revised grille, headlights and taillights, and front and rear bumpers.

Also new for the 2021MY, other than standard AWD, the Atlas will be available across all trims, except for the top-of-the-line Execline, with the choice of either the 3.6-litre V6 or the turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engines.

Meanwhile, the Execline will only come with the 276 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque 3.6-litre V6.

Inside, the 2021 Atlas will feature new driver-assistance and technology features as well as a few interior upgrades.

The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas will be unveiled during the 2020 Chicago Auto Show in February and will arrive in showrooms in May. As for the 2020 Atlas Cross Sport, it should arrive on dealership floors in March.
