Subaru Ascent (Page 9)

Subaru Ascent

Subaru will build the new Ascent on its new Global Platform and it will be powered by a new 2.4-liter twin-scroll turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine producing 260hp and 277 lb. ft of torque. The Ascent 2.4-liter twin turbo four cylinder is their new-generation boxer engine developed specifically for this vehicle and likely won’t power any of their other models.

Other features include standard EyeSight driver assist technology, standard X-Mode and 8.7 inches of ground clearance, and the Ascent comes with 5000 lb. towing capacity. It comes with 72.6 cubic feet of cargo carrying ability, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, 8 available USB ports, heated and ventilated front seats, rear-seat climate control and 2nd and 3rd row sunshades.

Ascent is built at its Subaru plant in Lafayette, Indiana and it will only be sold in North America. It's the largest vehicle the brand has ever built.
