New 2.0-liter turbo ready for next-generation Subaru WRX and BRZ
We have recently reported that Subaru is working on a faster version of the BRZ, but not to look for a factory equipped turbocharged version anytime soon. However, Car and Driver is reporting we could be seeing what kind of a supercharged engine that Subaru will be putting in the the BRZ and the WRX in the future.
They know this because Subaru has developed the first supercharged version of the 2.0-liter FA-series four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine that is now used in the 2013 Subaru BRZ and the Scion FR-S. Subaru has put the new turbocharged engine into the updated Japanese-market Legacy sedan and Outback wagon. Reports say the new turbocharged engine will develop an impressive 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This is significantly more than the current 200 horsepower boxer engine we see in the 2013 Subaru BRZ.
