Subaru 's all-new three - row SUV, the Ascent , is caught testing alongside a Mazda CX-9 and a Ford Explorer. Read more and see the spy photos at Car and Driver. What It Is: Subaru has been without a three - row crossover SUV since it discontinued its ill-received Tribeca in 2014.

Subaru has teased the possibility of a seven-seat SUV for years now, seemingly since the departure of the company’s unusual B9 Tribeca. That next-generation family hauler is finally on the way, taking the company’s modern design cues and applying them to a more traditional form factor than the undersized, overstyled Tribeca.

SPIED: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in La La Land

  SPIED: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in La La Land Spied testing recently in Los Angeles was the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado 1500, likely due for the 2019 model year. The redesigned pickup will probably undergo several changes compared to the current truck, including a probable switch to aluminum bodywork, a la the 2015 F-150. We recently spotted the same (or a similar) truck near our El Segundo offices, though we suspected it was a GMC at the time.

In 2014, Subaru has discontinued the production of Tribeca models that are three - row crossover SUV. However, the appearance of spy photos circulating at this time to prove that they did not give up. It is apparent that they are testing on their new vehicle

Subaru returns back in “ three - row crossover ” business after the short break. The Japanese car maker doesn’t have this kind of vehicle from 2014 when they killed the production of the Tribeca. However, they already made the new seven-seating SUV that will replace the slow-selling Tribeca.

Called the Ascent, the Subaru crossover will slot in above the Outback and Forester in both size and price. In fact, if the Tahoe-dwarfing size of the company’s Viziv-7 Concept is any indicator, the Ascent will be the one of the largest crossovers in its class and Subaru’s largest vehicle ever. The Viziv-7’s rugged styling has been predictably toned down from its 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show clothes. Less outrageous lighting front and rear highlight the changes made to make the Viziv more production-ready, and the concept’s Kia Telluride–like styling has given way to a more conventional roofline and side profile.

We see a good amount of Hyundai Santa Fe in the greenhouse, but the front and rear fascias are decidedly Subaru, as is the sculpted bodyside surfacing that starts at the front fender and extends to the tail. The company’s current corporate face shows up on the Ascent, looking very much like the mug found on the recently redesigned Impreza and Crosstrek. A blocky roof rack and reasonable ground clearance make the Ascent’s outdoor-friendly personality clear, giving it something else in common with the rest of Subaru’s mainstream lineup. The Viziv-7’s clamshell-style rear hatch is gone, replaced by a liftgate that splits the bold LED taillamps in two.

Revised 2018 Subaru Outback Unveiled in New York

  Revised 2018 Subaru Outback Unveiled in New York <p>Now featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto</p>The Outback has gone from a relatively low seller, selling just 55,000 units in 2009, to over 180,000 units last year, with each successive year seeing a sales increase. The revised 2018 Subaru Outback isn't a drastic departure from the previous formula, but rather introduces a small handful of changes aimed at enticing buyers. Included in this refresh are revised front and rear fascias that are bolder and more rugged, with the front grille featuring openings that are both wider and lower than before.

The future 2018 Subaru Ascent 7 Seat SUV will strike the market soon, which date will be at some time in the second fifty percent of 2017. We state redesigns since this new design will be really a substitute for a three - row crossover Tribeca SUV.

Likely powertrains should include the company’s 2.0L turbocharged I-4 on the base end. Producing 250 hp and 258 lb-ft, the compact engine gives the smaller Forester respectable verve, and it should be a good base engine for the Ascent. A retuned version of the Subaru 3.6L flat-six producing up to 300 hp and 300 lb-ft would make for a smooth, relaxed family hauler, as well.

If Subaru wants to play in the heart of the family crossover market, it may need to price the Ascent more aggressively than it does the Outback. A base model with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 shouldn’t cost more than $31,000, and a flag-bearing Ascent 3.6R Touring should be less than $45,000. The company’s traditionally impressive fuel economy should transition to the SUV as well; we expect a highway rating of around 30 mpg for the turbo and 27 mpg for the flat-six.

Expect the Ascent to make a formal debut next month at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, with SUVs showing up in showrooms at the beginning of 2018.
