The Volkswagen Atlas has been an enormous success, with both consumers and critics impressed by the three-row SUV’s bold styling, impressive performance, user-friendly technologies, cavernous interior, and off-road capabilities. The Volkswagen Atlas Basecamp Concept, which will make its debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show, takes the adventure capabilities of the Atlas up a few notches with its many accessories.
Design Highlights of the VW Atlas Basecamp
The VW Atlas Basecamp, which utilizes the Atlas SEL Premium trim as a starting point, features a two-tone Platinum Gray/Black Uni exterior paint color scheme with a matte black finish, along with orange accents. It rolls along on fifteen52 Traverse MX Concept wheels with all-terrain tires. The Atlas Basecamp also has an Air Design body kit, off-road LED light bars, a roof rack system with bike holders, and a lift kit with coil over springs, which results in an increased ride height of around 1.5 inches.
