New Subaru Outback Configurator Is Live Now, What Trim Is Right For You

The all-new 2020 Subaru Outback is coming this summer. Subaru has a new configurator for customers to see which trim is right for you.

The all-new seventh-generation 2020 Subaru is coming soon, but which trim is best for you? Subaru just put up a new 2020 Outback configurator tool so you can check out the seven different trim levels with standard features, color selection, and images of each 2020 model change. Outback will be available in Base, Premium, Limited, Touring, and three new turbo models, Onyx Edition XT, Limited XT, and Touring XT models.

Many customers will likely opt for the new 2020 Outback Onyx Edition XT trim featuring black-finish exterior elements, 18-inch alloy wheels and badging, and a gray two-tone interior. For active customers, seats are wrapped in a new water-repellant durable StarTex material for weekend off-road adventures.

The Onyx Edition XT also gets a hands-free power gate, front view monitor and, for increased capability in a wider range of environmental conditions, exclusive Dual-Mode X-MODE, and full-size spare tire.

The biggest news for the 2020 model change is the addition of the three new Outback XT turbocharged models with the Ascent-sourced FA24 2.4-liter 260-hp four-cylinder Boxer engine under the hood. Subaru axed the six-cylinder 3.6R model in favor of the more powerful XT with improved fuel mileage. Manufacturer’s estimated fuel economy is 23/30 mpg city/highway for the turbo. Outback now also comes with 3,500-lb. towing capacity, an increase from the previous 2,700-lb. rating.

The Outback 2020 model change brings with it lots of improvements. Are you excited about any of the changes?
According to config chart very limited colors on base model and only black for interior fabric, ever hear of the hot sun in FLA?
Congiurator is currently useless. Did you try to use it?
This was live weeks ago. It would be nice if they change the build and price tool to all 2020 models.
They will when they announce 2020 pricing
Yes, this has been live for a long time, not sure why this is being mentioned as something new. I figured by reading the headline/article the build/price was live.
Please get rid of those lousy rack system. Go back to what was on around 2008. Current rack system is not conducive to hauling a few kayaks or mtn bikes. Worst decision made to out this rack system on
Forester e-boxer not coming to USA (California in particular) ? Is Subaru crazy? Top competitors like Toyota and Honda will introduce the RAV4 Hybrid and the CR-V Hybrid this fall respectively! Is Subaru backing off because they think the e-boxer is not up to the challenge? If so, they better revise their attitude because they will lose sales and lose customers!
Stop putting old wine in a new bottle! This has been live for the last several weeks. if you don't have anything new to write, don't write at all instead of misleading everyone
How do you think he gets paid? I’ll bet it also includes more if people comment on your almost-flame-bait seed comment to your own article.
I love that the Subaru Outback offers auto dimming side mirrors---very important to me as I drive lots at night. It's not even an option on many competitors in this price range. Way to go Subaru! I wish they offered rain sensing wipers and front parking sensors. I'll take sensors over a camera any day as they work better in bad weather and you don't have to look at a screen. Also, the 2020 Outback should offer the same colours in the Touring XT as the Limited XT.
When is Subaru going to widen there exteriors colors? The nice ORANGE color should be available all over. What about "Plum Crazy" (Dodge,) LIME, and other (eccentric colors.)
