    Subaru Bringing 2020 Outback to New York

      ...update to old faithful...

    Subaru will be bringing an all-new 2020 Subaru Outback wagon to the New York International Auto Show next week.  Like its predecessor, the Outback will continue to be based on the Legacy sedan.  Subaru debuted the all-new 2020 Legacy sedan at the Chicago Auto Show in February.

    We expect many of the updates to carry over from the Legacy. On the Legacy, the overall look doesn't change dramatically, however there is an all new modular platform under the skin with improved torsional rigidity and higher strength steel.   The buy-up H6 engine is dropped in favor of a turbo-charged 2.4 liter boxer four-cylinder that produces 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.  The base engine is a 2.5 liter naturally aspirated boxer 4 with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque.   Both engines push their power through a CVT to Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive. 

    The interior gets a major update in both design and materials.  An optional 11.6-inch touch screen can be ordered, but otherwise a 7-inch version is standard. 

    You can read more about the 2020 Legacy at our article below. We'll have more for you when the 2020 Subaru Outback is shown on April 17th at 11:15 am eastern.

      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.”

    • 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.     
    • Finally; quicker in the quarter than a Dodge.  Impressive numbers... just don't see many takers out there.  No, like I said; he's looking at a looming CASH FLOW problem.
    • >>"The shortest Ranger now is 211 inches long.   A below 200 inch long pick up hasn't been around in a while..."<< Maverick is 200", not 188". I don't think 11" overall makes or breaks anyone's shopping list. >>"the Maverick is lower and narrower, easier to drive, easier to park."<<  1 & 2 : OK. 3 & 4 : how do you know? What if they're identically easy to drive & park?  Wheelbase is only 5 inches different- they're operationally identical. It's not going to navigate corners any different. >>"Can't someone make a tailgate where the inner part folds out into a box basically so it has a back and extends the sides of the bed?"<< Someone did it, and even better :   
    • For her vintage, the Normandie had a much nicer bow than her British counterparts of the era.  But the superstructure and the smokestacks are a little squatty.  The way it's decked out inside shows they threw a lot of francs at building this ship.  I love it when they christened them, hurled the champagne bottle at the hull, and send the hulls sliding down to the water.  A mechanical engineer in Italy I know told me they are not willing to risk a failed launch and, for decades, they have been built and floated in dry dock / a separate basin. The food had to have been off the charts.  French Line's last flagship - the SS France - was renowned for having the best food on the North Atlantic run.  The France wasn't in operation for that long - from 1962 to 1974. The fate of the Normandie was sad.  I didn't know they righted it and moved it to New Jersey.  I assumed it was dismantled right at the Hudson River pier. - - - - - I may have posted one of these before.  Here's the alpha and omega of the "QE2," which served for Cunard from 1969 until 2008. Black and white footage from a British video for its maiden voyage arrival in New York: - - - - - Almost 40 years later, bought by Dubai.  They threw a lot of money at this incredible welcome party.  I saw a clip where the last captain of the QE2 got teary eyed handing over the keys and paperwork to the developer-buyer in Dubai. The economy tanked and the ship sat there for about a decade, with people from the U.K. coming up with plans and funds to bring her back home.  The economy turned around again and she made it, so to speak.  She is now open as a hotel in Dubai.
