The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas engines are simply not as powerful and the fuel efficiency is lacking. The 2018 Traverse vs the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas are rated to tow up to five thousand pounds if the proper tow package and engine are installed to handle the payload but the Atlas seems to lack the ability to gain highway speed while towing fast enough and have the power to haul up hills without damaging the transmission because of the feeling of lack of torque and power.
