Engine Performance and Towing Capacity of the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
As you can see in our chart, the 2018 Buick Enclave is outfitted with a 3.6L V6 engine. Despite this engine's 310 horsepower / 266 lb.-ft. torque power output, it delivers an abysmal 1,500-pound towing capacity. That is as disappointing as a terrible movie that had an amazing trailer!
With the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, you have two engines to choose from: a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder and a 3.6L V6. The 4-cylinder engine cranks out a 235 horsepower / 258 lb.-ft. torque power output (with premium fuel) and has a 2,000-pound towing capacity. That is perfect for a lightweight trailer loaded with some ATVs, canoes, or supplies for your home renovation project. If you own a bigger boat or a couple of horses, the Atlas model's 3.6L V6 engine can tow 2,000 to 5,000 pounds thanks to its 276 horsepower / 266 lb.-ft. torque power output.
