2021 VW Atlas Towing Capacity by Engine

Can a VW Atlas tow a boat? It depends on the weight of the boat and your unique needs. The 2021 Atlas can tow 2,000 pounds with the base 2.0L I-4 engine, which is typically more than enough power for most jet skis or motorcycle trailers. If you need even more Atlas towing capacity, choose the optional 3.6L V6 with a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds. That’s enough to tow many popup campers and boats around Chicago. Check out the engine specs below:
