Subaru’s Next-Generation Outback Will Visit New York First
Outdoor enthusiasts and aficionados, get ready: the next generation of the Subaru Outback, the beloved wagon-turned-pseudo SUV, will be revealed at this year’s New York Auto Show in April, on the heels of the revealing of the new Legacy sedan in Chicago.
It’s likely that the new Outback will take after the Legacy, and if assertions by Car and Driver prove to pan out, the Outback will likely come equipped with either Subaru’s 2.5-liter flat four or the more powerful 3.6-liter flat six, as it is currently.
Car and Driver also notes that interior fit and finish will likely be a big part of the Outback’s overhaul, its first in about five years. Nonetheless, the Outback proves to be a steady seller, accounting for the second-most popular model Subaru’s lineup last year.
Though much of its exterior styling is likely to be derived from the Legacy, we’re hoping that the new Outback will in some ways mimic the oddly named but overall cool Levorg concept, which was unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. We’re not holding our breath, however, given that Subaru has had some trouble living up to the buzz from its concepts recently.
