All New 2015 Outback

Subaru finally lifted the veil on the all-new 2015 Outback at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). The automaker says in a press release that the redesigned outback “offers the roomiest interior, most capable chassis and highest fuel-efficiency in the model’s 20-year history.”

The base model for the 2015 Outback 2.5i comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 175 horsepower, while the highest Outback 3.6R Limited features a 256-horsepower six-cylinder engine. For 2015, Subaru has phased out the six-speed manual transmission that came standard on the 2014 Outback and made a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with paddle shifters standard across the model lineup. Subaru expects the base 2014 Outback to get 25/33 mpg city/highway, which is better than the 24/30 mpg rating that the 2014 Outback gets when equipped with a CVT.

The standard saying that comes locked in with every Subaru is “All-Wheel Drive”, meaning in a sense, that all our customers will drive is a Subaru. This cute play on words reflects back to all Subaru models that come standard with all-wheel drive. The new redesigned 2015 Outback is no different. Other features that new Subaru models now come standard with are hill descent control, hill start assist and Subaru’s new X-Mode system. Subaru says that X-Mode “optimizes engine output and CVT ratio position, increases Active All0Wheel Drive engagement and uses enhanced control logic for the Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system to reduce individual wheel spin.”

The new 2015 Outback is redesigned in more ways than just the engine and new technologies. It is slightly longer and wider and if offers 2.7 cubic feet more passenger space than the 2014. Subaru says, “the added space includes gains in the shoulder, front and rear hip and elbow room and rear legroom.” The new Outback also offers a bit more cargo space, with 35.5 cubic feet with the rear stets in use and 73.3 cubic feet with the 60/40-split rear seats folded.

Of course there will be Standard, Premium and Limited trims available for purchase but the all-new 2015 Outback comes standard with features like a rearview camera and an infotainment system with a  USB port, Bluetooth, HD Radio and a 6.2-inch touch-screen display. Subaru’s Starlink smartphone integration is also standard and provides access to iHeart Radio, Aha Infotainment and Pandora Internet Radio. The 2015 Outback will hit Modesto Subaru sometime this summer. Call for more information or check back on our website.
