With the global chip shortages, Subaru has been forced to change the timeline for its new models. The new model upgrades and next-generation model changes will be different now. Here is the new timeline for the 2023 Subaru Forester, 2024 Outback, 2024 Crosstrek, 2024 Ascent, and other new models and what customers can expect.

The Forester compact SUV and Crosstrek subcompact SUV manufactured in Japan have been affected most by global supply chain issues and chip shortages. There have been numerous plant shutdowns this year, and the two models are the hardest to find.

2023 Subaru Forester

When will Subaru launch the 2023 Forester compact SUV, and what changes will it get? The 2023 Subaru Forester will be announced by Subaru of America this summer. The Forester received a refresh for the 2022 model change and will likely carry over with no changes for the 2023 models. There will be price increases on all trim levels.

2024 Subaru Crosstrek

The 2023 Crosstrek was announced by Subaru of America recently, and it should have been the next-generation model customers have been waiting for. Because of production issues in Japan, Subaru Corporation chose to carry over the 2023 Crosstrek with no changes except for the Crosstrek Special Edition, which is little more than an appearance package with a new color. Customers will have to wait until 2024 models arrive next year to get the next-generation Crosstrek.

Uh….what about the Solterra????
I had a 2010 Forester and had to replace the engine after 110,000 because of oil issues. ( A month after I had an oil change. I have a 2012 Forester and replaced that engine at 79,000 miles because oil leaked into the engine. I then had to replace the entire exhaust system because the heat shield was cracked a month later both front and rear breaks including calipers and rotors. I would love to know how you came to that yearly cost of only $484.
Will Subaru surprise customers and give the 2023 Impreza compact car a complete remodel? Stay tuned.---- When the 5th generation debuted in 2017, Subaru sold 86,000 Imprezas in the US. Don't bother to stay tuned as there is no chance that Subaru will debut a 6th generation during this manufacturing mess.
They could always use this chip shortage as an excuse to sell manual transmissions across all models again, and do away with this garbage CVT system they keep trying to make work
Hard to sell a manual transmission that only 15 or 20 percent of Americans can take for a test drive.
