The all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent 3-Row family hauler has been three years in the making, since Subaru discontinued the B9 Tribeca 3-Row vehicle. Tribeca was too small for the U.S., customers and dealers let Subaru know, and they listened. It’s being built in the U.S. for American families and it’s coming soon. Subaru announced customers can pre-order the new family-sized vehicle from their local dealer. Production is expected early summer 2018 with orders arriving soon after. Go here to pre-order the Ascent.
Families can choose base, Premium, Limited and Touring models and it will be the biggest Subaru ever built. Ascent offers up a spacious interior, comfortable and flexible seating options and a host of new safety, driver assist and in-vehicle technologies.
The SUV is built on the new Subaru Global Platform with high-strength steel, featuring rigidity and vibration resistance, providing a quiet interior and excellent driving feel. Ascent is powered by an all-new 2.4-liter Boxer engine, mated to a new version of Subaru’s high-torque Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) automatic transmission and standard Symmetrical all-wheel drive system for all-weather capability.
Subaru expects the new all-wheel-drive vehicle to be a big hit with current customers looking to move up from an Outback, Forester or Crosstrek, and families looking for a 3-Row crossover who have never purchased a Subaru vehicle before. The all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent won’t arrive in showrooms until this summer, but you can see it a car show near you now.
