Subaru Ascent Heading To Los Angeles

Subaru Ascent Heading To Los Angeles

At the event, Subaru will pull the wraps off the all-new 3-row Ascent SUV.

But really, we know quite a bit about what the crossover will look like, since we've seen two concepts, the Viziv-7 and Ascent Concept. Under the hood we also expect the Ascent will be motivated by a turbocharged boxer engine. Think Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Traverse in terms of similarly-sized competitors. The Ascent is of course the B9 Tribeca spiritual successor, but comes with modern underpinnings, riding on the Subaru Global Platform that was first seen along with the 2016 Impreza.

Further details on the Ascent have yet to be released. Power output and transmission selection are still big questions at this stage.

The Subaru Ascent is set to measure its forces against some of the segment's heavyweights, including the new VW Atlas, and for that matter feature an exclusive North American production location in Lafayette, Indiana starting next year.
