I would think they will not implement that on the Outback until the the new 20 model. Now the Ascent may be getting all the attention the next Outback with the optional 2.4 DIT will be the hot car from Subaru and could eat into Ascent sales

I think the biggest thing about the 18's I've enjoyed is that the LED's are the DRL's in the Limited trims. I don't think that was standard equipment on the 17's - and it might only be on the higher trims in the 18's - but I do notice them around town.

Personally I'm excited that they're not touching anything for the 2019's, since I'll be (finally) jumping on one of the last 3.6's.

I've driven a family member's 16 and 17 OB, and they actually felt different - the 18 I test drove was a 3.6 so I can't speak as to the feel of the CVT of the 18's - but I do believe I read something about them going to a different (shorter pitch?) spec on the chain.

did you ask a dealer,...(any dealer,...not necessarily one to buy form),
when they can take a 2019 outback order, and when one should come in.?

? Want people to stop needing to ask what exact car you have? year -model -engine -trans, scroll down to "your car":

Everyone seems so sure that Subaru will give up on a 6-cylinder engine of some sort for the next generation OB. Not so sure, just a gut feeling. They may develop a more modern six to use for the Ascent and then use it (with less power) for the OB at some point.

They’re still taking orders for 18 3.6’s. They expect the 19’s to be announced in June and start seeing delivery in late July/August, kind of like the 18 models did.

When I bought my '14 I seem to remember the information coming out in the June/July timeframe. I waited till late August/early September to order and got the Outback the first week in October. I'm hoping to be able to follow the same "schedule" for a '19.

It is indeed unlikely that they would do anything significant with the Outback that might detract from customer acceptance or sales of the Ascent. They do not want to end up with another Tribeca and you can bet that the product managers for the Ascent platform will be fighting next year for the '20 Outback to not be as capable as their flagship model.

I don't think they will have a "single flagship model"

more like 2. the outback,...and the one with 3 rows.

different stokes for different folks.

and the question that only people in SIA, Cherry Hill, and world HQ in japan knows (or is NOT divulging):
how many advanced orders do they have for the Ascent.


one thing that they did say is how many new redesigned global platform Crosstreks were sold in April.
plenty of news stories in the past 2 weeks, put it top 5 of all new cars sales,...and that in itself states that the public is paying attention to what is new with subaru.

(and Jeep, ...lots of redesigned Wranglers in that month too,...)
