The 2019 Atlas is able to provide much greater interior space (and top-end torque output) than its Telluride counterpart, but that only scratches the surface of its dominance over this industry newcomer. You’ll have a touchscreen navigation system, premium Fender® Audio system and app integration compatibility with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, inclusions that have not yet made their way into the Telluride. Going even further, the 2019 Atlas is a kingpin when it comes to your safety and security on the road; the following innovations prove this:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Light Assist
  • Lane Assist
  • Area View Monitor
  • Park Distance Control w/ Maneuver Braking
  • Park Assist
  • Many more!


Knowing all this, it should come as no surprise why so many American consumers have trusted the Atlas for all their SUV needs.
