New 2015 Subaru Outback : 2015 Subaru Outback Changes
New 2015 Subaru Outback - Do you know how many Legacy sedans Subaru sold in the Unites States last year? The answer is 42,291 cars. The reason why we mention it is that, during the same period, the Japanese firm sold almost three times as many units of the crossover-flavored version of the Legacy Estate, the Outback, with 118,049 deliveries. That makes the Outback Subaru’s second best-selling model in the States, behind only the Forester that sold 123,592 units in 2013, which shows how important it is to the automaker.
That said, the new model, rumored to debut at the New York Auto Show in mid-April, will stick to the tried and tested recipe that adds a taller ride and SUV-styling elements such as body cladding to the next generation Legacy station wagon’s body, with the same car providing the renewed interior as well.
Judging from Subaru’s history, the new Outback’s powertrain lineup should mirror that of the latest Legacy offering a choice of 2.5-liter four-pot boxer producing 175hp and 174 lb-ft and a 3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer rated for 256hp and 247 lb-ft, both paired to a CVT transmission driving all-four wheels.
The Subaru Outback has always been the Boy Scout of the car/wagon/crossover crew, with its standard AWD and rugged, foul-weather-defeating demeanor. While that demeanor won’t likely change, reports say the Outback is getting a Legacy -style work-over for the 2015 model year and will make its grand entrance at the 2014 New York Auto Show this spring.
Since the Outback is essentially the wagon version of the Legacy, it makes sense the recent changes to the 2015 Legacy would make their way over to the Outback. What this means for the Outback is a new exterior look with a similar reworked grille, headlights and raked windshield. The extra body cladding and plastic bits that make an Outback look like an Outback will surely make their return.
Inside, the same redesigned dashboard, instrument panel and center console with softer touch, more premium materials will be present. The coupe -like look of the new Legacy obviously won’t make the jump as cargo room and rear passenger headroom are bigger priorities in the Outback.
History tells us the powertrain offerings will be identical as well. The new Legacy offers two engine choices: a 2.5-liter flat-four making 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque and the 3.6-liter flat-six putting out 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, both engines are stuck with CVT transmissions with no conventional manual on the horizon.
