Thumbs up OFFICIAL 2019 Outback Discussion

I find it a bit odd that there seems to be no info on the 2019 OB? We heard about the 2018 OB in January 2017. I guess there must be almost no changes in 2019 as they did the mid-model changes for the 2018 model year and 2020 will be a new design, at least that is rumored. I just like to keep up with the changes.


Thank you

My dealer said the 19's won't have many if any changes.

Nice exterior color choice! I have a twilight blue with black interior on order.

We're not expecting much this summer with the '19 Outback.

We traditionally run 5 year body cycles, so the redesign and global platform will hit the Outback for the 2020 model year - so sometime late summer, fall of 2019 at dealerships.

Subaru typically has laser focus on one big roll out a yr. You won’t hear anything about the 2019 OB for a while and I wouldn’t expect much of anything different from the 18.

The Ascent is no doubt the Laser focus all hands on deck topic right now and will be probably all the way through November

redesigned 2019 global platform foresters should hit dealers in "fall"

november/december they should be talking about the plug in hybrid, and whatever the 2020 legacy/outback engine choices are.

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

As the 2019 should be the last year of the Gen 5 platform, expect little to no changes. It'll be nearly the same as a 2018.

Maybe have a different color option, maybe a this or that trim change...but functionally identical.

Have you considered the Google search bar at the top of the forum?

outback 2009 = "special edition" cloth seats with a moon roof.

outback 2004 = weird colors. (and no pretty gold rims ).

Isn't this true for the 18 as well? It's just a bumper swap and a different head unit that sucks.

There's a pretty long list of less obvious changes for '18. But maybe you were just starting trouble, I dunno

Little column A, little column B.



I guess the 'functionally identical' was my hang up.

Are we going to single out all the 2015's for having a dome antenna while the 16,17,18, and presumably 19 all have shark fins?

It's the only way I can tell my two apart.
