Volkswagen Atlas vs Honda Pilot Specs

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Performance SpecsTo get started, we’ll take a look under the hood of these two SUVs and see what powers them.

With the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas, you’ll have a choice between two different engine options. The standard 2.0T inline 4-cylinder engine produces 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. If you want a bit more oomph, with the available 3.6L V6 engine, you’ll get 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque capability. With all this power, you’ll get a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped with the V6 engine and a factory-installed trailer hitch.

Over in the 2020 Honda Pilot, you’ll only have one engine option—the standard V6—which will only get you a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.
