For your next 2021 VW Atlas* oil change, we recommend AMSOIL’S SAE 5W-30 LS Synthetic European Engine Oil. AMSOIL SAE 5W-30 LS Synthetic European Engine Oil (6 quarts with filter) and the #WL10396-EA WIX Oil Filter should be used for the Atlas*’s 2.0L 4-cylinder DCGA Turbo engine. The 3.6L 6-cylinder CDVC engine would benefit from the increased protection given by AMSOIL’S SAE 5W-30 LS Synthetic European Motor Oil and #57462-EA WIX Oil Filter. This 100 percent synthetic European engine oil is an ideal option for protecting and cooling turbochargers operating at high speeds. The prolonged drain intervals required by European automobile manufacturers prompted AMSOIL’s team of qualified scientists to develop a special formula. This premium synthetic formulation was painstakingly developed with the most recent cutting-edge chemistry in order to meet the specific requirements that European engines impose.
This capable vehicle has one base engine and one optional engine. The Atlas* is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that has 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque as standard equipment.
Although the basic option offers a sufficient amount of power, motorists who want even more muscle have the choice of upgrading to the 3.6L V6 engine, which offers 276 horsepower and 265 foot-pounds of torque. Your Atlas* will always have the option of an 8-speed automatic gearbox with Tiptronic. Regardless of the engine you decide to go with, expect a comfortable driving experience.
Front-wheel drive (FWD,) which comes standard on the 2021 Volkswagen* Atlas*, is an option that is both cost-effective and fuel-efficient for motorists who want a journey that is more pleasant. An all-wheel-drive system, which provides superior traction and handling, is an option worth considering for improved performance.
If you choose an all-wheel-drive system, you will also have access to four distinct driving modes. During winter driving, the “Snow Mode” may be used. You should use “On-Road Mode” for most city and highway driving. While traversing more difficult terrain, choose “Off-Road Mode.” Now, a “Off-Road Custom Mode” is available for this exceptional all-wheel-drive system, allowing you to tackle the most challenging trails with ease.
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine can get up to 21 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined with the front-wheel drive configuration. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine can get 20 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined when paired with all-wheel drive.
The front-wheel-drive 3.6L V6 Engine may potentially get 17 city/23 highway/19 combined mpg, depending on how you drive. The EPA claims a maximum of 16 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the interstate, and 18 mpg in mixed driving with the 3.6L V6 engine and all-wheel drive.
