Differences between the 2018 VW Atlas and 2017 Honda Pilot

The 2018 VW Atlas and 2017 Honda Pilot have a couple of key differences when it comes to the engines that power then. The Honda Pilot comes standard with a 3.5L V6 engine that offers a decent amount of power and efficiency. At launch, this is similar to the engine that is available in the 2018 Atlas -- both in terms of power and efficiency. The two actually end up sharing the same max towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. One of the big differences here, though, is that the 2018 VW Atlas is also available with a turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine, which is expected to provide good fuel efficiency numbers.
