The 2024 Subaru Forester gets a complete remodel and could be fitted with a new 1.8-liter turbocharged Boxer engine coupled with Toyota hybrid technology. Subaru could give the Forester a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine to replace the 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated Boxer engine. Subaru has not confirmed the 2024 Forester information.

2025

Both the Subaru Outback and Legacy will get a complete redesign for the 2025 model year. Subaru announced the new Japan-spec 2022 Outback, and it's powered by the new 1.8-liter direct-injection turbocharged Boxer engine.

Subaru could use its new 1.8-liter turbocharged direct-injection (DIT) engine in the next-generation 2025 Outback and Legacy for U.S. customers. Subaru will couple the small turbocharged engine with hybrid technology they are now developing with Toyota.

Subaru has not confirmed the 2025 Outback information, but it fits with their goals and the Japanese automaker's 2020 Vision plan they announced earlier. Stay tuned.

Buttt..... Where's my turbo Levorg wagon????
I used to be a certified salesman in crabtree subaru in CT back in 2004. It saddens me to see my favourite company getting trashed because of CVT. When will subaru policy makers realize that the CVT is destroying the brand. Please get rid of it and bring back the glory days.
It seems that the CVT does what Subaru wants it to do in the non-performance models. My 2016 Crosstrek 2.0L/CVT can average 40+MPG per tank. It's only EPA-rated for 32-33 hwy. I haven't had any issues with the CVT, and at least Subaru uses a chain. That said, it IS boring, although the paddle-shifters are nice to have. Acceleration in a heavy little 2.0L/CVT Crosstrek is glacial, so I would love to see something like a Wilderness or WRX Crosstrek...with a 2.0-2.4T/6spd. Skids and adjustable coilovers could make it ready for rally, offroad, or commute. Boost is beast at high altitude. Subaru could kick butt with the mountain-loving crowd, and they already produce the parts.
