There’s only one word for this year’s Rocky Mountain Subaru Festival 2018: HOT! With temperatures in the mid-nineties, thousands of Subaru fans baked in the heat at Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver. The largest gathering of Subaru enthusiasts in the Rocky Mountain area brought the Subie rumble to Denver.
Aside from the heat, it was a great weekend for the Denver area Subie Festival as hundreds of fans showed up with their WRX, WRX STI’s, Foresters, Outbacks and BRZs at the Mile High Stadium. Most of the cars displayed were Subaru WRX and WRX STIs, but there were also a few tricked out Foresters, Crosstreks and BRZs scattered throughout the lineup of cars.
Subaru of America brought the new 2019 Subaru WRX STI Series.Grey along with the newly-remodeled 2019 Forester Sport SUV and the all-new 2019 Ascent 3-Row family hauler. The new models were popular with fans throughout the show.
Fans were most interested in the new limited production (250 examples) WRX STI Series.Gray model. 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.
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. The cabin features black Ultrasuede Recaro seats with carbon black leather bolster and Ultrasuede steering wheel with red stitching. The limited edition also includes 8-way power driver’s seat and keyless access with push-button start. The WRX STI Series.Gray is priced at $39,695
