Exterior

The shape and design of 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak are obviously similar to the design of Atlas crossover. This particularly means for front end which is almost copied from the Atlas. The best about this car is the length of the car which is now much longer and has 214.1 inches, slightly lower from main competitor Chevrolet Colorado. The trunk is maybe slightly shorter than on competitors, but there will be two option in the offer, so everybody should find their best combination.

Interior

The cabin in Volkswagen Atlas Pickup Truck is perfectly fit for five adult persons. The seats in both rows are shaped to follow the body and covered with the leather. The wide and simple dashboard has everything needed for the car in this class. The dashboard is very simple and flat, with a large touchscreen in the middle and numerous buttons and commands on the bottom. There is a modern decorative line across it. However, thanks to its length and width, the cabin is very comfortable and spacious.

Engine

The engine in 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak is not a big surprise so far. It is the same as the manufacturer used on Atlas crossover, meaning 3.6-liter V6 petrol unit with 256 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. It should also be paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission and send a force to the four wheels. This is the only engine that is in the offer so far, but there should be some news about the hybrid engine, too.
