Subaru Boxer Engine Engineering information in Chandler, AZ

Discover the BOXER® Engine & its Advantage at Subaru Superstore Serving Phoenix, AZ

Under the hood of every Subaru model, you'll find an advanced BOXER engine unlike anything else on the road. So, what is a Subaru BOXER engine? The name comes from the positioning of the cylinders and pistons vertically like a boxer throwing a punch. The BOXER engine consists of an equal number of cylinders that are horizontally opposed to one another. Since there is an equal and opposite reaction for every action, precise timing allows the actions of the pistons to naturally cancel out noise, vibration, and harshness. Another primary advantage of the Subaru BOXER engine is that its design allows it to sit flat in the vehicle for a lower center of gravity. The engine is among the heaviest parts of any vehicle which means that traditional V or inline engine configurations necessarily raise the overall center of gravity in the vehicle. The flat design of the BOXER engine allows Subaru SUV and Crossover models to overcome obstacles with 8.7 inches of ground clearance while still handling comfortably like a car. Having the BOXER engine in Subaru cars allows for a truly engaging driving experience you simply won't find behind the wheel of anything else in their class.
