2020 Subaru Outback Release Date

2020 Subaru Outback Release Date

The 2020 Subaru Outback, which was designed with more engine power and more rugged accents than ever before, is slated for release in the fall of 2019. Before its arrival, drivers in the Pittsburgh area will want to prepare themselves for what it has to offer.

The Baierl Automotive team put together this sneak peek of the 2020 Outback to help you get acquainted with its fine attributes ahead of time.

2020 Outback: An Exciting Performance Update

The Outback has long been lauded as one of the more powerful crossovers in its class, and in the 2020 model year, you’ll have more robust options than ever before.

The SUBARU BOXER® engine, horizontally opposed for streamlined power flow and added safety, remains a cornerstone of the Outback. In its standard configuration, you’ll be able to eke out 182 horsepower for a smooth kick that helps you merge easily onto the highway during your morning commutes.

Of course, drivers looking for more power can turn to the new Onyx Edition XT trim level. Available direct-injection turbocharging enhances the SUBARU BOXER® for more muscle. With this trim, you’ll be able to produce an impressive 260 horsepower.

Master the Rocky Roads

Anybody that frequents dirt trails or occasionally snowy climates can appreciate that Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard in every Subaru. In the 2020 Outback, it works with available X-MODE® to maximize your traction on slippery or uneven terrain.

You shouldn’t lose your grip on rocky terrain, but how will you protect the vehicle against harmful road debris? A new ground clearance of 8.7 inches creates a larger gap between the crossover’s underbelly and the road, offering a bit more protection.

You’ll be thanking that ground clearance if you head to the mountains for a biking adventure. With standard roof rails with integrated crossbars on every trim, tying down your bikes should be no problem at all.

Standard Driver-Assisting Safety Features

Even the most attentive drivers can use a helping hand when the unexpected comes their way. Fortunately, the 2020 Subaru Outback will be watching your back with standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology.

EyeSight® smartly incorporates several sensors and small cameras to monitor your surroundings. It knows when trouble is approaching, and it can act of its own accord to keep you protected.

Among the EyeSight® suite, you’ll find Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering. When engaged, it’ll help you maintain following distances and apply steering and throttle assist to keep you in your lane.

EyeSight® is no replacement for your own awareness. However, it does provide another set of eyes—albeit digital—to help you avoid dicey situations.
