2019 Volkswagen Atlas Basecamp Concept

Though Volkswagen’s Atlas is touted as a family-friendly midsize SUV, the brand is keen on showing that it’s a lot more than a city-going people hauler. In fact, with the right buildout, it’s capable of transforming into a go-anywhere adventure vehicle. And that’s just what VW has illustrated with their Atlas Basecamp Concept.

The brainchild of Alex Earle, Exterior Design Manager at the Volkswagen Design Center California, the Atlas Basecamp was envisioned specifically to meet the needs of endurance mountain biking. As such, it features a 3.6-liter VR6 engine mated to the brand’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system with Drive Mode Selection — perfect for getting you to even the most remote trailheads. It’s also equipped with a custom Air Design body kit, a 1.5″ H&R lift kit with coil-over springs, a Front Runner Slimline II roof rack, and off-road LED light bars at the front and tail. With this USA-made go-anywhere concept SUV, we think Volkswagen might just catch the attention of adventurous types who may have otherwise looked the other way.
