Is Subaru of America losing its grip in the Rocky Mountain states? A new report from GoBankingRates.com reveals the 2021 Subaru Forester and Outback are not in the top-5 best-selling cars in any of the Rocky Mountain states like Colorado. The Outback used to dominate in Denver, but that’s no longer the case. The Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Toyota 4Runner are the most popular small and midsize SUVs in Colorado.
But the 2021 Subaru Forester dominates in three U.S. states, according to the new report. The compact SUV is one of the top-5 most popular vehicles in Alaska #5, Connecticut #4, and Washington #5. The 2021 Subaru Outback is one of the top-5 most popular vehicles in Oregon #5.
The article says, “Some states popularize cars that fit in with the stereotypical lifestyle of the region. For example, in the outdoorsy Pacific Northwest, the Subaru Outback and the Subaru Forester crack the top five in Oregon and Washington, respectively.”
It’s no surprise the 2021 Subaru Forester is also a top-5 best-selling car in Alaska, where the snow is deep, and all-wheel-drive traction is a must. It’s also a popular model in Connecticut, where the winters can be brutal, and the average snowfall is 37.2 inches.
