2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Driving

There’s a lot to love in a Volkswagen. There’s the style, the turbo power, and the interior, but what about the towing capacity of the Atlas Cross Sport? The VW Atlas Cross Sport towing capacity tops out at an impressive 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, but there’s more to the story than that, Arlington drivers. Alexandria Volkswagen is going to take you on a journey of Atlas Cross Sport towing and more from your VW sales and finance destination, Alexandria Volkswagen. And we’ve got the Atlas as well!

VW Atlas Cross Sport Engines

There are two engines available to Washington DC Atlas Cross Sport shoppers. Those would be the standard 2.0L turbo-4 engine and the available 3.6L V6. While the base engine is plenty powerful and gives you 2,000 pounds of standard VW Atlas Cross Sport towing capacity, you’ll have to upgrade to the 3.6L V6 to get the full 5,000. Take a look at the specs for yourself in this guide:

2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder Engine

  • 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic (mode that allows manual shifting and ultimate control)
  • Front-wheel drive as standard; 4MOTION® AWD available
  • 235 hp
  • 258 lb-ft of torque
  • 21 City/24 Highway MPG EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy
  • 2,000-pound towing capacity

3.6L V6 Engine

  • 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic (mode that allows manual shifting and ultimate control)
  • Front-wheel drive as standard; 4MOTION® AWD available

What Can I Tow with This?

If you’re looking at the 5,000 pounds of towing capacity in the 3.6L V6 engine, you might be asking, what can I tow with an engine like that? If you’ve got a small trailer or a pair of ATVs, you’ll be able to get them from Springfield to the lake or campsite with no problem. You’ll also be able to handle a small boat just fine.
