Fuel Efficiency
in terms of fuel efficiency, both the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport are rated identically by the U.S. EPA. The 2024 model is rated at 20 mpg city / 27 mpg highway / 23 mpg combined with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive variants drop by one mpg. The Atlas Peak Edition is heavier and has different tires, so its numbers are slightly lower at 18 mpg city / 24 mpg highway / 20 mpg combined. We drove the Atlas SEL Premium R-Line (with 4Motion all-wheel drive standard) on mostly back roads, and the trip computer did not quite reach the EPA rating, displaying only 16 mpg.
