Look's like Subaru is trying to copy 2016 Volvo XC90.
Not terrible names. Though I'd expect "sojourn" to be the name of a retro-styled futurecar with oval wheels and a Pontiac badge out front.
At least they didn't call it "Firefox." Already enough SUVs sharing names with web browsers.... Explorer, Safari, Navigator, Aviator...
Not that I necessarily would have a problem with that. That new XC90 is gorgeous.Look's like Subaru is trying to copy 2016 Volvo XC90.
It does! A hybrid version under 50k would be very appealing. I would not expect a starting price lower than just under 40k though (like 38,900 or something!).XC90 styling with a subaru price tag. Sounds great! The XC90 MSRP base is 50k, adding options quickly puts it over 60k. Add in the hybrid, you are over 70k real quick.
True, true. The MSRP on the tribeca was $34k, so it makes sense this will be starting near 40k. But the Tribeca's 'base' was pretty nice to start with!
Hopefully SOA makes it with a 5K tow rating and can officially use WDHs.
Why not? Subaru already packaged an OB into a 7 pax and failed (though I have had two of those and they are great in many ways). Rumors suggest--and logic dictates--that the new 7 pax, now engineered specifically for the US market, will be a "proper" 7 pax vehicle rather than a repackaged Outback with a heavy duty suspension. Having a 5k tow rating should be part of the package. Not to mention that the current OB ratings in the US are artificially low. The vehicle is rated far higher elsewhere. In Australia my car has nearly 400lb tongue weight rating!Don't hold your breath. That would require significant changes to the current drivetrain lineup.
