    6th Generation 2020 Subaru Outback Debuts in New York

      ...Safest, most capable Outback ever...

    • New XT models with 260-horsepower 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine
    • Debut of Onyx Edition XT trim level with unique exterior and interior
    • Tablet-style high-definition SUBARU STARLINK 11.6-inch touchscreen
    • New Hands-Free Power Gate
    • Available segment-exclusive DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System
    • Standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology with Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control and new Lane Centering
     
    large.20TDI_OBKpl042.jpgThe 2020 Outback delivers the optimal blend of SUV capability and car-like ride and handling with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Active Torque Vectoring, Vehicle Dynamics Control and X-MODE with Hill Descent Control. The 8.7 inches of ground clearance for all Outback models is greater than that in many SUVs, yet the Outback maintains a comfortably low step-in height for both front and rear passenger entry.

    For the first time since 2009, the Outback lineup offers a turbocharged engine. Standard on XT models, the 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine delivers robust all-around performance with 260 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 277 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. Meanwhile, the standard naturally aspirated 2.5-liter BOXER, with direct injection and nearly 90 percent of its parts new, delivers 182 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 176 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm.

    All 2020 Outback models are paired with a CVT featuring an 8-speed manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters. The 2.4-liter turbo delivers a 3,500-lb. towing capacity, the most of any Outback in history, while the 2.5-liter provides more than a 600-mile range on a single tank. Manufacturer’s estimated fuel economy is 26/33 mpg city/highway for the 2.5-liter and 23/30 mpg city/highway for the turbo.
     
    The 2020 Outback offers a peaceful cabin that is almost 3 dB quieter at highway speeds. Subaru engineers worked extensively to find ways to reduce unwanted noise coming into the cabin, fitting the Outback with new door weather strips that feature a baffle in the mid-section and dual lips on the roof side for improved quietness. Sound-insulated glass, which uses a sound-insulating inner film for the windshield and front-door glass, has been adopted, while glass thickness all around has been increased for quietness
     
    SUBARU STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology offers an integrated cockpit experience by allowing the driver to control entertainment and vehicle settings through a large touchscreen display.
     
    Pricing for the 2020 Outback will be announced closer to this fall’s on-sale date.

    Nice, should continue to sell well to the faithful. 

    I wonder if this engine will have the heads gasket problem of all the other boxer engines? 🤔

     

    Not ALL boxer engines had gasket problems

    Really? 🤨 Seems Subaru owners all say and complain about the head gasket issue. My neighbor just had both of his Subaru's in for head gasket repairs. Outback and Legacy.

    Decent work here most Subaru’s drive like turds though nowadays. Let’s hope this is a decent drive. 

    All new platform, so probably have to start that impression from scratch.

    Not sure if Toyota had anything to do with the platform but it is the latest car be on same platform as all of their other models (Impreza/Crosstrek/Forester/Legacy) that were redone in the last few years aside from the WRX/STi and BRZ.

      Today in Tokyo, Subaru put forth an ambitious plan. By the mid-2030s, the Japanese automaker will only sell electric vehicles worldwide. This announcement comes as no surprise as both China and Europe have announced stricter emissions regulations that will be coming in the near future.
      But to reach that goal, Subaru will be working with Toyota (which owns a 8.7 percent stake in Subaru) on developing both hybrid and electric vehicles. In a statement, Subaru executives said work has started on a “strong hybrid” vehicle using Toyota technology. No other details were provided. The two are also working on full-electric vehicles that will launch sometime this decade. These vehicles will play a key role in Subaru's goal of having 40 percent of vehicles sold be all-electric and electrified cars by 2030.
      Despite this change in direction for powertrains, Subaru executive's stress their vehicles will retain the key traits that have their vehicles unique.
      “Although we’re using Toyota technology, we want to make hybrids that are distinctly Subaru,” said Subaru's Chief Technology Officer Tetsuo Onuki.
      “It’s not only about reducing CO2 emissions. We need to further improve vehicle safety and the performance of our all-wheel drive.”

    • Cash Flow Problem? Hell Yes he does, what part of he just lost $500 Million in Carbon Credit sales with only a $430 Million profit means he is cash positive? If he did not have a sales problem, then he would be selling millions globally rather than a few hundred thousand. The auto business has not been profitable yet if you look at the SEC filings, he had Tesla turning a profit due to Carbon Credit sales to other auto makers and now that the mergers have addressed those needs, the sales have stopped, so yes, Tesla has a Cashflow problem.
    • We'll all dictators and dictator wanna be's eventually fall to society and the better things in it! May K-Pop rule North Korea!  
    • I like that rather than the older traditional 4x4 system, they have changed to AWD allowing an easier use for most people.
    • I needed some cleaning products for my automobiles. Both cars hadnt been cleaned on the inside for quite some time now...  I have 3 consecutive days off starting today so I thought Id do some car cleaning.  I thought I had some left over but nope, so before heading to work yesterday, I bought some cleaning products.     And this is what I saw in the Canadian Tire parking lot.   My dad's 1979 Impala seemed to have had the same colour... Say what you will about 1970s cars from GM.   Diss, bitch and complain and say that GM's troubles began in the 1970s.  I, for one though, LOVE many many GM products from this era.    This Poncho right here...long, low and sleek.  Beautiful convertible.  Miles better looking and interesting than the shyte cars that you could see in the background...  
    • Hey @David K-Pop is a cancer. A vicious one at that! https://ca.news.yahoo.com/kim-jong-un-calls-k-121112259.html Dont look at me...David.  Im only regurgitating what the expert of Korea  is saying.
