The three-row Atlas was the midsize utility vehicle Volkswagen wanted, however the mannequin’s entry-degree turbocharged 4-cylinder is seemingly the engine Volkswagen doesn’t need.

For 2019, the Atlas appears some uncommon rejigging happen on the backside finish of the trim ladder. Until you’re completely stoked with the thought of getting the least quantity of energy going to the fewest variety of wheels, you’ll find yourself paying extra.

In line with 2019 Atlas order guides seen by CarsDirect, Volkswagen crops to drop the 235 hp 2.0T engine from all however one trim degree — the bottom S mannequin. Final yr, SE and SEL consumers might get their arms on a 4-banger.

Because it drops 4-cylinder availability in favor of the model’s 276 hp three.6-liter V6, VW has additionally eradicated the entrance-drive Atlas S V6 mannequin. This implies getting right into a six-cylinder requires additional expenditure for all-wheel drive (it’s a $three,200 climb from the $31,890 MSRP of the 4-cylinder S). If six cylinders is a necessity however AWD isn’t, you’ll end up leapfrogging that mannequin to land on the $36,490 entrance-drive SE V6.

It’s an odd grouping — you’ll should spend a further $four,600 for a entrance-drive V6, however $1,four hundred much less in the event you’re within the temper for an AWD V6.

4-cylinder Atlases have been all the time skinny on the bottom; the producer made most turbo trims obtainable as manufacturing unit order solely. With this 2019 trim reshuffling, VW can proceed advertising the bottom mannequin’s aggressive entry price whereas boosting the road’s profitability.

A key product for the U.S. market, Atlas gross sales started in Might of 2017. Over the primary 9 months of 2018, forty three,002 American consumers drove residence in a brand new Atlas, with the mannequin representing over sixteen % of the model’s U.S. quantity. Coupled with gross sales of the smaller Tiguan and its outgoing Tiguan Restricted predecessor, in addition to the remaining Touaregs populating U.S. tons, SUVs made up forty seven % of Volkswagen’s 2018 U.S. gross sales.
