Subaru teases something new, and we’re pretty sure it’s the Forester
The Japanese automaker is planning to debut… something at the Los Angeles auto show
Subaru released a tightly cropped teaser image this week signaling the debut of a new car. And while the company won’t come right out and say it, we’ll bet you a billion dollars it’s the new Forester SUV. Just trust us on this one.
The Forester is one of the oldest models in the company’s lineup, though it did receive a small refresh a couple of years ago. We don’t expect the new model to shake up the SUV’s formula drastically, but look for a new overall design and better interior trimmings. The wheel shown in this teaser photo sure looks nice, too.
Subaru will more than likely continue to offer the Forseter with its 2.5-liter naturally aspirated flat-4 engine, as well as standard all-wheel drive. Sure, there’s a chance Subaru could put the 2.4-liter turbo flat-4 from the Ascent, Legacy, and Outback into the Forester, but considering the company discontinued the turbocharged Forester XT years ago due to super-slow sales, we won’t be holding out for its return.
In any case, we’ll have the full details about the new Subaru Forester – if that’s what this is – when it debuts later this month. Look for Subaru’s news to drop on 16 November.
