There are a lot of things people consider when picking out a new SUV, but three of the top features people look at are power, fuel efficiency and interior cargo space. And, as it so happens, these are three categories in which the 2018 Ford Explorer lineup completely outshines the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas lineup.
As you can see in our ’18 Explorer vs ’18 Atlas comparison table above, the new Ford Explorer lineup crushes the new Volkswagen Atlas lineup in terms of standard power ratings and available power ratings. Yes, it’s true the 2018 VW Atlas offers three more pound-feet of standard torque than the 2018 Explorer, but when it comes to standard horsepower, available horsepower and available torque, the new Explorer has no equal – and it’s not even close.
That makes it all the more surprising that the 2018 Ford Explorer lineup can get better highway gas mileage than the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas lineup. Yes, it’s only one additional mile per gallon, but that one mile per gallon comes along with all that additional power.
Which brings us to interior cargo space. As shown in our table, the new Ford Explorer lineup gives you more space for all of the things you need to bring along with you for the ride than the new VW Atlas lineup can offer.
