Additional Features

The 2019 Atlas is loaded with advanced features both inside and out, designed to keep you entertained, comfortable, and safe. While we can't go into detail on all its features here, we have highlighted some of the key specs below.

Blind Spot Monitoring

A simple but highly useful safety technology, the Blind Spot Monitor system, uses two radar sensors on the left and right sides of the vehicle. These sensors constantly scan for other vehicles that you may be unable to see, flashing a warning signal when vehicles are detected.

Stability-Enhancing Systems

Whether it's the anti-lock brakes, electronic differential locking, anti-slip regulation, electronic brake pressure distribution, engine braking and hydraulic braking assist, or driver-assistive technologies, the Atlas is equipped with the tools to keep you in command on the road.


The 4MOTION® all-wheel drive system is designed to work with the aforementioned stability systems to provide you with unrelenting control at all times. The 4MOTION® system monitors which of the four wheels is maintaining the best road traction, and is then able to direct engine torque to those wheels, providing more power and more grip when you need it.
