  • the 2021 vw atlas is adding a new styling accessory package called basecamp.
  • it includes extra body cladding and trim pieces and can be paired with special wheels and all-terrain tires.
  • the full basecamp package costs over $4000, including the cost of wheels and tires, and certain elements are available as individual accessories.

    the volkswagen atlas is getting a new styling package to make it look more rugged and off-road-ready. sharing its name with a previous atlas concept vehicle, the basecamp package will now be offered as a set of accessories for the refreshed 2021 atlas three-row suv. it includes extra plastic cladding and other styling elements and can be paired with a special set of wheels and tires to complete the look.

    the styling package costs $2500 and includes a bumper guard, larger fender flares, and silver trim for the rocker panels and rear valance. each of these elements is also available as a stand-alone accessory, although you only get basecamp fender badges if you opt for the whole set. the cool-looking 17-inch fifteen52 wheels are sold separately for $250 each, as are all-terrain tires, which can range up to over $800 for a set of four depending on brand (vw recommends a size of 245/70r-17). so all of the basecamp extras as pictured here would likely total upward of $4000.

    vw dealers will offer the basecamp package for any 2021 atlas except for r-line models, and it's only recommended for vehicles equipped with a trailer hitch. it won't be offered for the slightly smaller, two-row atlas cross sport, as vw says it intends to position that model as more on-road-focused.
