On November 14, Subaru announced it will launch the all-new Ascent at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, which begins later this month.
The Subaru Ascent is a new 3-row midsize SUV that was developed based on the Ascent SUV Concept. It will succeed the previous Tribeca.
The Ascent SUV Concept incorporates Subaru’s Dynamic Solid design philosophy and offers the spaciousness that’s expected from a 3-row SUV. It also provides the functionality of a Subaru vehicle throughout the cabin and exterior.
The production model will be assembled at Subaru of Indiana Automotive in Lafayette, Indiana. The 2019 Subaru Ascent featuring the Subaru Global Platform and a horizontally opposed direct injection turbo engine will be released sometime in 2018.
