Default Updated 2014 and 2015 Production Info

Subaru has updated production info. Outback 2014 final order date is April 11 with 2015 orders opening on July 14 and production starting August 1. For the Legacy, these dates are April 11 and June 16, with production starting July 1.

They've added a note that orders for Legacy models EAK (the 3.6R) and EAD + package 39 (2.5i Premium + nav and moonroof) ended on February 27. Orders for those cars are no longer being accepted.

This is of note mainly to anyone still considering ordering a 2014 model. Certain Outback configurations will probably end very soon if they haven't already.

Thanks for the info. I was told that it takes approximately 2 months to get an Outback ordered. Does this mean if I were to order August 1st I'd have to wait until October 1st for delivery?

I've ordered several new Outbacks for myself or others, and in each case the car was delivered (to Colorado) within six weeks.

Subaru listed August as the initial 2015 Outback delivery month. Presumably this means that cars built in early August will arrive at dealers near the factory in August, and those going further will take an extra couple of weeks.

It looks like they're going to be building Legacys first and then changing over to mostly Outbacks for a while after that. This is what they usually do anyway, so that's no surprise. If you're sure you're going to order, you may want to make sure your dealer's management knows that you want the order to be placed as soon as possible so that your car is scheduled promptly.

Production for current models are to be continued until end of May and possibly part of June. The new Outback should be presented by the first week of next month.

So that would be *before* the NY Auto show?

Thanks for chiming in!

Yes. Right now the OutBack is still in staging process. We should show it off very soon.

Yeah, that's why I asked. VanZant works for Subaru so we are guessing he might have better info than Joe Spitz (who usually is the go to guy for Subaru info)
