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.

It rolls along on fifteen52 Traverse MX Concept wheels with all-terrain tires.
