The Phoenix Area Looks Forward to the New Subaru Ascent

SPOILER ALERT: we don't have any Ascent models in stock or for sale--because it's technically not in production yet. Although the Ascent seems to be an inch away from production-ready, it is still in its concept form.

Don't despair, though. We and fellow Subaru enthusiasts country-wide are working to bring the Subaru Ascent to life in 2018, so keep your eyes peeled for news.


What Is the Subaru Ascent?

The Ascent is Subaru's first venture in to the three-row SUV segment since its lukewarmly-popular Tribeca a few years back. But everywhere the Tribeca did poorly, the Ascent looks like it will shine: its style is bold and modern, with a unique style that isn’t just copycatting other Subaru models. It will seat seven passengers, making it ideal for families who drivers with big demands, and it will offer standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Because... of course.


Why We're Excited About It

We're excited about the new Subaru Ascent for quite a few reasons:

  • It's Subaru's first REAL competitor to models like the Pilot, the Highlander, and the Pathfinder (sorry, Tribeca)
  • It will offer a turbocharged four-cylinder (that we might end up seeing in models like the Outback and Crosstrek--please?)
  • All-Wheel Drive 3-row SUV? Who won't love that?
  • Families who love Subaru will finally have a larger option to choose from
  • It looks absolutely amazing
  • It will likely be affordable--possibly under $33,000
  • We're expecting decent fuel economy for its size, thanks to Subaru's efficient turbocharging technology

Keep an eye on our blog to stay up-to-date with Subaru news--we'll be updating about the Ascent as often as we can.
