Thornton CO - 2019 Subaru Outback's OVERVIEW

Exterior - 2019 Subaru Outback

With a front section that's disproportionately long compared to other crossovers, the 2019 Subaru Outback seems relatively sleek and low in its design. This is something of an optical illusion, though, since it has 8.7 inches of clearance that's ideal off the pavement. Overall, the Outback's bearing is subdued yet functional with thin roof supports yielding to larger windows for an unimpeded view of surroundings. Fronting the vehicle is a modest-sized roughly hexagonal upper grille emblazoned with the Subaru logo. Enclosed by rectangular headlights, it's balanced by a thinner lower grille. At the opposite end of a body available in nine colors including abyss blue, cinnamon brown, and wilderness green, taillights positioned along the frame intrude into a hatchback that's guarded by both the bumper and the lower sides of the Subaru Outback.

Powertrain - Subaru Outback specs near Thornton

Normally furnished with an economical 2.5-liter flat-4 Boxer engine, the Subaru Outback also has a 3.6-liter flat-6 for extra power. The 2.5-liter delivers 175 horsepower that's quite effective for most uses while providing, according to 2018 measurements since 2019 tests have yet to be performed, 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. If quick acceleration on the open road is needed or extra tenacity in climbing over rocks is required, the 3.6-liter block optional with the Limited and Touring editions will oblige with 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. Trading economy for muscle, it still achieves a comfortable 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. All Outbacks at Flatirons Subaru come with all-wheel drive and power is transmitted via a CVT or continuously variable transmission that's designed to simulate shifting gears. Both engine sizes are configured as unique Boxer engines that use equal numbers of pistons in direct opposition of one another in a flat layout. This balances piston motions for minimal engine vibrations. The motor itself lays flat which keeps the vehicle's center of gravity low so there's less tilting when it turns a tight corner. With the engine sitting low in the engine bay, it's also more likely to be driven under the passenger cabin in a high-speed crash than straight into it.
