When Volkswagen introduced the Atlas SUV, many americans thought the German manufacturer is trying to lure the attention from the Dieselgate scandal. Even so, the Atlas seemed to be a hit on the US for Volkswagen.
Volkswagen Chattanooga announced that it achieved a production milestone with the completion of the 100,000th Volkswagen Atlas.
Assembled in the LEED Platinum-certified production facility in Chattanooga Tennessee, the 100,000th SUV is a 2019 Atlas SEL premium, finished in Pacific Blue, with Shetland V-Tex leatherette interior. The Atlas has a 3.6-liter direct-injection VR6 engine, 8-speed automatic transmission.
For the 2019 model year, the Atlas is available in seven trims levels: S, SE, SE w/ Technology, SE w/ Technology R-Line, SEL, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium. The Atlas family receives a modest value alignment, with driver-assistance and innovation features moving to lower trims. Front Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Traffic Alert are now standard on all models. Volkswagen Digital Cockpit—the high-tech configurable instrument cluster—is now standard on SEL models.
Manufacturer suggested retail pricing for the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas 2.0-liter starts at $30,895 for the S model; 3.6-liter models start at $34,095 for the S 4Motion.
