The 2018 Subaru Outback is a rugged essential suited for the less-traveled road.
Built for the tough life
Agile and skilled at making sharp turns, this wagon incorporates Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) with Active Torque Vectoring. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard on each trim, offering reliable traction and stability no matter what road conditions you face. An 8.7-inch ground clearance combines with X-MODE and Hill Descent Control to boost your confidence when trekking across varying terrain.
A force to be reckoned with
The upper two trim levels, the 3.6R Limited and the 3.6R Touring, channel the potency of 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque whenever you climb behind the wheel. The innovatively designed 3.6-liter SUBARU BOXER® six-cylinder engine has a low center of gravity which enhances the vehicle’s stability. Coupled with a Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission, this wagon delivers excellent handling to match its under-the-hood energy.
Flexible storage and roomy cargo space
The 2018 Subaru Outback keeps passengers comfortable in its cavernous interior that boasts 108.1 cubic feet of space. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats with deployment paddles allow you to rearrange items in your trunk for maximum efficiency. With 73.3 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume at your disposal, you’ll have plenty of room for all of your gear, whether you’re heading to and from sports practices or embarking on a weekend adventure.
Extra storage on the outside
Still worried that you might not have room for all of your equipment? The new Subaru Outback has you covered yet again. No matter which trim you pick, you’ll enjoy the convenience of roof rails designed with integrated crossbars so you can secure your gear to the top of the vehicle.
One of the quintessential characteristics of a Subaru vehicle is its long-lasting design, both inside and out. Per the manufacturer, the Outback model is the longest-lasting vehicle in its class.* Rigorous features enhance the lasting quality of this wagon. The 2.5i Premium trim or higher comes with a retractable, removable cargo-area cover to help protect your car’s exterior from abrasive items that you might need to haul.
If you’re in the market for a durable family hauler, look no further than the 2018 Subaru Outback. A generous interior, exterior storage options and off-roading features combine for a formidable wagon capable of accompanying you and your family on the most rigorous expeditions.
