Volkswagen Atlas Gets Angry Makeover And 350 HP
Volkswagen tuner ABT has built an extensively modified Atlas that offers more power and has improved off-road prowess.

The Volkswagen Atlas is a respectable SUV, but it isn’t known for its performance, The range-topping model is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out 276 ponies and 266 lb-ft of torque, but we’ve always thought the seven-seater SUV would benefit from a bit more power. Thankfully, Volkswagen tuner APR has answered our prayers with its new extensively modified Atlas that offers more power and improved off-road prowess.

 

 

Based on the entry-level 2.0-liter Atlas, which produces 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, the tuner has installed a turbocharger lifted from a Golf R, upgraded the ECU, and added a carbon-fiber intake and custom-fabricated cat-back exhaust. As a result, the modified Atlas has an output of 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. No performance specifications were revealed, but with an extra 100 horses under the hood, it’s safe to say that the 7.9-second sprint time will definitely improve.

 

 

To handle all that extra grunt, APR has also modified the suspension and brakes. New rear trailing arms raised the right height by 1.5 inches, and the Atlas now rides on a set of 20x9-inch forged wheels with Toyo Open Country M/T tires. Six-piston brake calipers also improve the large SUV’s stopping power.
