Subaru of America will be at the New York International Auto Show August 19-29 and announced they would uncover the all-new next-generation 2022 WRX performance sedan. Subaru just teased the new WRX in a new video you can check out here.
In the surprise announcement, Subaru of America says the next-generation WRX will be revealed on August 19 at the press day. The Camden, N.J. automaker said they would be streaming the world premiere of the redesigned 2022 WRX performance sedan live.
Sources close to Subaru say the all-new 2022 WRX won’t start production on the next-generation sport-tuned 2022 WRX sedan until this fall. The new 2022 WRX they reveal at the New York International Auto Show on August 19 will be a pre-production model.
Subaru has been typically tight-lipped about the 2022 WRX. According to recent reports, the complete remodel from the ground up will include a new FA24 2.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged Boxer engine producing 286 horsepower (18 more horsepower than the current-generation model).
The new WRX will have widened front and rear fenders to accommodate wider tires and the sportier image of the bumper opening. The overall length is expected to be 183 inches, which is 2.2 inches longer than the previous WRX. The overall width is about 71 inches, which is .40 inches wider, and the total height is about 57 inches.
The teaser video doesn’t show much, except we know the 2022 WRX will be a sedan and not a hatchback body style. The video shows more dust and dirt than it does the all-new WRX.
When can you buy the new 2022 WRX?
Look for the all-new WRX to hit showrooms in late 2021 or early 2022.
How much will the 2022 WRX cost?
The current price of the 2021 WRX is $28,420, including the destination fees. The 2022 WRX will likely get a significant bump in price, but the base model will still be less than $30,000, making it a good performance value.
Subaru will uncover the next-generation 2022 WRX in New York in three weeks. Stay tuned to Torque News for the complete sport-tuned WRX specifications and details, and you can tune in live at the event here. Subaru says it gets new upgrades to the engine, suspension and gets aggressive exterior styling.
