Subaru Outback vs the Competition:

Subaru Outback Capability

The Subaru Outback starts off its impressive performance with several versatile engines. The standard powertrain is a 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder engine that can pump out 182 horsepower, 176 lb-ft of torque, and tow up to 2,700 pounds when properly equipped.

This engine works in tandem with an efficient Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This transmission works to provide you with great fuel economy and helps the Outback earn up to an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG.*

This proficient powertrain sits on a durable drivetrain that rides high. Coming with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and an 8.7-inch ground clearance, you'll be able to confidently go off-roading or ride through any number of road conditions.

Additional powertrain features:

  • X-MODE®
  • Hill Descent Control
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control
  • Traction Control System
  • Active Torque Vectoring

Other Engine Options

The Outback also offers a 2.4L turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder engine. This setup increases your outputs to 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, providing you with added muscle on the local roadways. When configured with this engine, your Outback will also be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
