Athletic Authority

The 2020 Subaru Ascent is the biggest Subaru to date, and yet its handling and agility are still leagues better than vehicles half its size. The tight steering and lively acceleration keep the ride smooth and responsive, allowing for much more maneuverability than its large frame would suggest. Its powerful construction utilizes only the highest quality materials, prioritizing durability while still keeping your ride light enough to prevail through any conditions.

Packed With Potential

The 2020 Subaru Ascent takes full advantage of its turbocharged 2.4L SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder engine to deliver drivers the power necessary to overcome any obstacle. This state-of-the-art engine packs enough power to handle whatever situation you may find yourself in, pumping out an astounding 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. The standard continuously variable transmission rounds out this substantial powertrain with nearly seamless gear shifts. When the quickest possible response time is vital, the 2020 Subaru Ascent also comes standard with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for an immediate reaction.

This powertrain’s excellent fuel economy also proves that power can be both potent and efficient, boasting an impressive EPA-estimated 21 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway in spite of its gargantuan size. Its rating is especially impressive when its standard all-wheel drive is taken into account, while most of its competition falters even when utilizing front-wheel drive.

Heaving The Heaviest Haul Yet

Just in case its driving performance and heavy-duty frame wasn’t enough, the 2020 Subaru Ascent also boasts the most towing capacity of any Subaru to ever exist. Its colossal 5,000-pound towing capacity provides ample capability to tow anything you may need, regardless of your destination. The available Class III trailer hitch ensures hassle-free connections, and a spanning selection of additional racking accessories is offered to provide you with the tools to carry all of your cargo in a secure and organized manner. X-MODE® keeps your vehicle stable and holds your haul steady by ensuring maximum traction, even on slippery services. X-MODE® also includes Hill Descent Control to keep you safe and secure, while traversing even the steepest of slopes.

Ultra-Strong Steel Construction

The 2020 Subaru Ascent builds off of the Subaru Global Platform and is constructed exclusively using high-strength steel to provide its frame with additional rigidity, superior longevity and phenomenal crash safety. The determining factors for the steel used was the utmost durability combined with the lowest possible weight, ensuring that the 2020 Subaru Ascent remained as sprightly as it did powerful. This strategic design also provides the driver with a quieter cabin in general, cutting out a large majority of ambient outside noise. A whopping 8.7 inches of ground clearance also makes certain to keep any unwanted debris or potential hazard far below you.
