The all-new 2019 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak is an attractive pickup truck that can accommodate up to five passengers across the two rows. The price is more than affordable, and the warranty is among the best-in-class.
The exterior looks elegant while the interior is pleasing and tech-rich. Moreover, the space inside the cabin is great and that includes both the passenger room and the cargo room. A real family favorite, the engines are efficient, however, all of the Atlas’ fans are crying for a more powerful unit. However, the forthcoming 2019 Atlas could get a hybrid drivetrain and generally, this truck is based on an Atlas Cross Sport SUV model.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak exterior
The highlight of such an attractive exterior is the front end where you can big a big grille taken from the CrossBlue model. That grille comes in a rectangular shape and it takes a perfect place between the headlights. Moreover, the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak features the headlights that are also taken from the same model, but the headlights are original. The hood is another thing that was borrowed, so most of the customers are disappointed by the lack of uniqueness.
The side profile also sports beautiful lines that run over the middle of the vehicle. The same styling cue was taken from the Atlas Cross Sport. The rear adds nice-looking taillights and plenty of chrome work. The aluminum wheels are available, just like the roof rails and a power tailgate that is standard. A panoramic sunroof is optional, and you can opt for numerous styling packages that are bringing more aggressive styling.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak interior comes with plenty of high-tech
The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak offers a very upscale interior with plenty of high-tech amenities. The steering wheel looks sporty and it comes with the flat bottom and thumb buttons. A VW’s virtual cockpit reminds us of Audi’s cockpit and is all-digital. Infotainment display is large and it sits in the center of the dashboard. Moreover, phone connectivity that adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available too.
An optional Fender Premium audio system adds 12 speakers and 480-watt amplifier. There is room for five persons and the room inside the cabin is great. The comfort is good, seats are very supportive and the cooling and heating seats are optional. Generally, it is a very inviting interior with upscale features and great comfort.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak engine options
This truck arrives with the same two drivetrain options as the SUV model. A standard 2.0-liter turbocharged unit with four cylinders can produce up to 238 HP and 265 lb-ft of torque. However, if you want more power, the optional 3.6-liter V6 engine is perhaps the right choice. The V6 unit generates 280 HP, however, we’ll have to wait for a torque number and towing figures.
If you opt for a 3.6-liter unit you will get a 4Motionall-wheel-drive configuration and different off-road driving modes. Additionally, even the on-road modes such as Normal, Eco and Sport are in the offer. Both engines are using an 8-speed automatic transmission. A hybrid variant will happen in the near future, but not this year for sure. German carmaker opted for the same V6 engine in a combination with the two electric motors. Hybrid variant should be able to produce around 358 HP and 400 lb-ft of torque.
