A number of months in the past, a slide purportedly revealed Toyota’s future product roadmap. Fast ahead to right now, and one other slide has apparently outed Subaru’s plans.
While it ought to be taken with a grain of salt, the slide was observed by the GR86 Forums and reportedly exhibits future manufacturing dates.
First up, it exhibits the facelifted Crosstrek will go into manufacturing this fall. That’s fairly fishy as 2021 fashions are already in dealerships, however there’s no phrase on when this picture was taken.
Further down the map, we are able to see a Forester and Outback “Wilderness” going into manufacturing within the spring of 2021. Little is thought about it, however the title suggests they is likely to be a bit extra rugged than the usual fashions.
Around the identical time, Subaru will reportedly start manufacturing of an up to date Forester and the second-generation BRZ. The latter mannequin was spied this morning and apparently featured an intercooler which hints at a turbocharged engine.
The remaining product for 2021 would be the new WRX, which is slated to enter manufacturing within the fall. It might be adopted by the STI variant a yr later.
Rumors have instructed the next-generation WRX STI can have a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces at the least 400 hp (298 kW / 406 PS) and 361 lb-ft (489 Nm) of torque. The commonplace mannequin is predicted to make use of a detuned model of this engine, however nothing is official as of but.
The slide additionally suggests 2022 will see up to date variations of the Ascent, Legacy and Outback. Little is thought about them, however they’d doubtless have the standard styling and know-how upgrades.
2022 can also be set to mark the start of electrical automobile manufacturing. Subaru’s EV was previewed earlier this year and it will likely be an electrical crossover developed with Toyota. The firm has beforehand mentioned the mannequin would arrive by 2025, so the timing works out on this case.
Lastly in 2023, there might be apparently be redesigned variations of the Impreza and Crosstrek in addition to a brand new Crosstrek Wilderness variant.
