2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2018 Dodge Journey

While the Atlas may be new to the auto industry, Volkswagen certainly isn’t. That means that despite its young age, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is making strides toward being one of the top seven-passenger SUVs on the market. Others are starting to pay notice, which is why we feel it’s best for you to take a look at how it compares against other top models. Check out the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2018 Dodge Journey.

There’s a world of difference between these two, but for starters we’ll peek at the transmissions on each. Since the 2018 Atlas has an 8-speed automatic transmission, it can shift gears quicker and smoother than the 6-speed multi-speed automatic that rests under the hood of the Journey. This amounts to better top-end fuel efficiency for the Atlas. See how else they compare in the table below.

Warranty in the 2018 Atlas

We often make a point to stress safety and protection. But how is your automaker protecting you in other ways? Volkswagen prepares for the worst by equipping you with the best. That means making each Atlas model standard with a six year/72,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. That’s the best bumper-to-bumper warranty in the United States. Included in this warranty are all powertrain components and the advanced technology features, and the warranty is transferrable to any new owners who take over the Atlas during the warranty’s entirety. The Journey, like most of the Atlas’ competitors, only offers a three year/36,000 mile warranty, so if you own it for more than three years you’re not covered for damages or breakdowns that may occur down the line.
