    Rumorpile: Subaru Has Some Engine Changes Coming For The Legacy

    • Some powertrain changes are possibly coming to the Legacy

    Despite just showing off the new 2015 Legacy at the Chicago Auto Show, Subaru has some changes incoming. Car & Driver reports that the automaker is working on a replacement on 3.6L flat-six that will appear the mid-cycle refresh, most likely happening in three years. The new flat-six engine will be 3.0 liters and pack more power than the current 256 horsepower from the 3.6L. Its unknown if the engine will have direct-injection or a turbocharger.

    Also, Subaru is considering dropping in the direct-injected and turbocharged 2.0L FA boxer-four engine that is found in the Forester XT and WRX. No timeframe has been set if given the greenlight.

    About time...

    Making more than 256 hp Naturally Aspirated on 3 liters will mean revving the thing to 8 grand or higher. Highly unlikely given the "family" car application that is the Legacy. A single turbo will easily push 300hp with very little boost and minimal lag from 3 liters though and I believe that is where they are headed.

    I think they should bring the Turbo Diesel 2L engine here. 147HP / 350LB-FT with the 6 spd manual.

    Best yet is checking out this site that shows all the awesome Subaru Diesels you can get anywhere else in the world but here in the US!


    Which Diesel would you like?
