The All-New Subaru WRX Is One Of 5 Most Anticipated New Cars This Year

Check out the five most anticipated new cars coming this fall. The 2022 Subaru WRX is on the list and is about to make its global reveal, but when?


The 2022 Subaru WRX should have made its global reveal this week, but it has been delayed because COVID and a new Delta variant shut down the New York International Auto Show. The next-generation WRX is one of the five most anticipated new cars coming this fall. CarsDirect says the WRX makes the list along with the 2022 Ford Maverick, 2022 GMC Hummer EV, 2022 Audi A3, and 2022 Nissan Frontier.

CarsDirect says, “With the death of the Mitsubishi Lancer (EVO) and the Ford Focus RS, the only real viable option that’s still on sale is the Subaru WRX. The current generation is in its sixth model year on sale and needs an update. Luckily, it looks like Subaru is coming out with an all-new model for 2022.”

It will be unveiled this year, and Subaru Report reached out to Subaru of America. Todd Hill, Subaru of America Manager of Product Public Relations, told us, “We aren’t quite ready to announce the revised debut timing just yet, but expect to see something soon.”

Subaru has been tight-lipped about the next-generation Subaru WRX, but many reports say the 2022 WRX will get a new 2.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged Boxer engine. Horsepower could be around 286 horsepower (18 more horsepower than the current-generation model).

What will be the price of the 2022 Subaru WRX?

The current price of the 2021 WRX is $28,420, including the destination fee. 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.

When will the 2022 WRX be available to purchase?

Look for the all-new 2022 Subaru WRX to be in Subaru showrooms this fall 2021. With the recent production shutdowns and microchip shortages, performance enthusiasts who want a next-generation WRX can expect few models until 2022.

The all-new 2022 Subaru WRX is one of the most anticipated new vehicle launches, and the first arriving performance cars will sell quickly. As soon as Subaru of America opens up the models for pre-orders, it would be a good idea to order the color and trim level you want. Stay tuned for the new reveal announcement soon.

So you expect the WRX to debut in late summer and be on sale in showrooms by the fall? The BRZ was shown over 6 months ago. How many of those have you seen at the dealership?

2014 forester has 2 liter 250bhp turbocharged engine! Basically its the same engine as the wrx! How come they are coming out with a less powerful engine? How come, the Subaru has a weak front suspension system!

I'm cautiously optimistic about what the STI holds in store, but I'm more interested in the drivetrain overall. Will that beloved hand-built 6MT see any upgrades?
