The All-New 2018 Subaru Ascent Is Coming!

Subaru is adding a seven-passenger crossover vehicle to the lineup:        
The 3-Row Subaru Ascent coming in 2018!


The 3-Row Ascent SUV will debut this fall 2017. What we know is that it will be pack a brand-new 2.4 liter turbocharged direct injection boxer engine and continuously variable transmission for plenty of power and performance.  The Ascent will be built on Subaru's new Global Platform to provide incredible handling, reduced vibration, greater comfort and increased energy absorption for increased safety.  The platform first debuted with the 2017 Impreza, and will be featured on all Subarus.  Of course the Ascent will have Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive!

We expect that passenger room and comfort will be best-in-class.  It is projected to be slightly larger than the Honda Pilot, Kia Sorento, VW Atlas, and the Toyota Highlander.  The Ascent will compare very favorably to the Ford Explorer and Chevy Tahoe.  If you are family looking for that larger SUV, the 2018 Subaru Ascent is gong to be well worth waiting for.



Subaru's original 7 passenger SUV was the Tribeca, introduced in 2005. It lacked the spaciousness that customers wanted, particularly in the 3rd row.  Power and performance lagged.  Ultimately production of the Tribeca ended in 2014.  Expect the Ascent to be very different, fully addressing the concerns of the Tribeca.



Infotainment was shown on the concept model as a large tablet-style set up on the dashboard, with a small screen placed on the back of the center console for the second-row passengers.  Included we'll see Apple Car Play and Android Auto.  This is going to be a fun-family SUV!



Even with plenty of space and comfort for the 3rd row passengers, the Ascent has plenty of cargo space.
Perfect for the family.

   

The Ascent was designed exclusively for the U.S market, and will be built at the Lafayette, Indiana plant.

As more information on the Ascent is available, we will update.  We expect to see it arriving at Patriot Subaru in North Attleboro in mid- 2018.  Stay tuned!
