What Are the Differences Between the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas and the 2019 Ford Explorer?

Starting off at an affordable $30,895, the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas provides buyers with seven elite trims levels, two power-packed engine options – a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine and a 3.6-liter VR6® engine- and 96.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. With only five trim options and 81.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, the 2019 Ford Explorer can hardly compete at its $32,365 starting price.

The show-stopping exterior of the Atlas may be sleek and sophisticated, but the interior is even more luxurious. The details throughout the vehicle’s interior are truly one-of-a-kind and can’t be found within the Explorer’s rugged interior. Every detail within the Atlas was built with accessibility and comfort in mind, making each drive a true indulgence. The Atlas provides drivers with a customizable interior, letting you choose between six seats or seven. Standard three-row Atlas models feature a three-passenger second-row bench with a two-passenger third-row bench. If drivers don’t need to seat up to seven passengers and want to offer a little more wiggle room for second-row passengers, they can opt for an Atlas model with two Captain’s Chairs in the second row to keep everyone a little more comfortable.

With the latest driver-assistance technologies and innovative features, the Atlas makes each time behind the wheel a breeze. The Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, Discover Media navigation, automated panoramic sunroof, and more put the fun back into driving, making the Atlas fun for the whole family.
