New Subaru WRX STI Series.Gray; Hurry If You Want One
The special edition Series.Gray models are a limited production of 750 WRXs and even more limited for the 2019 Subaru WRX STI Series.Gray with just 250 examples being produced for the U.S. market. Fans at Boxerfest this weekend were the first to see the new limited production performance sedans. Even though it was a soggy, wet day, thousands of fans turned out to see the Subaru car show at FedExField in Landover, MD.
The new 2019 limited edition WRX and especially the WRX STI will sell quickly, so you better hurry if you want one. Like the STI Type RA, the WRX STI Series.Gray is upgraded with Bilstein STI sport-tuned suspension featuring Bilstein dampers for the inverted-strut front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension.
For 2019, all WRX STI 2.5-liter turbo boxers get a power increase to 310hp with the help of a new air intake and high flow performance exhaust. A retuned ECU and stronger pistons also help increased engine performance in the 2019 STI. Many fans are still not happy with the bump in performance, they wanted more than a 5hp increase.
One thing Subaru did right, was how they priced the new 2019 WRX STI Series.Gray. The WRX STI Series.Gray is priced at $39,695. The 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA has a price tag of $48,995 for basically the same car. The WRX STI Series.Gray model comes in a Cool Gray Khaki exterior, features unique Crystal Black Silica badging and foldable exterior mirrors as well as 19-inch alloy wheels with a black finish. It also gets a silver finish with black STI logo on the Brembo brakes calipers.
The 2019 Subaru WRX Series.Gray is priced at $32,595. It’s based on the WRX Premium and includes the Performance Package with Ultrasuede-trimmed Recaro seats, 8-way power driver’s seat, JURID front brake pads and moonroof delete. It also adds LED Steering Responsive Headlights, LED fog lights and Keyless Access with Push-Button Start.
The limited edition 2019 Subaru WRX STI Series.Gray will likely sell quickly, so if you want one, you need to hurry. They will officially arrive at Subaru showrooms this fall.
