Louisville CO - 2019 Subaru Forester's Overview

Exterior - 2019 Subaru Forester

The 2019 Subaru Forester is a CUV with a high, aggressive stance, which distinguishes it from other comparable crossovers, and it received a number of modern visual flourishes as well. The front end is where the change is most dramatic. The straight rectangular grille is gone. In its place is a much more rounded grille. The headlights have become more rounded and less angular as well, and they are also quite a bit bigger. The new fog lights are bigger too, which helps enhance the aggressive look. The changes at the rear end are more subtle and aimed at complementing those up front. The taillights are bigger and have more angles, and there are more touches of silver from high to low.

Mechanical - Subaru Forester specs near Louisville

If you are familiar with Forester models of the recent past, then you may notice that the 2.0-liter turbocharge engine is no longer available. Subaru has actually discontinued it. In its place here is a more powerful 2.5-liter i4 engine. This engine is present at all trim levels and paired with an advanced continuously variable automatic transmission. The 2.5L i4 and CVT make 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is standard. This vehicle provides much better off-road performance than your usual AWD crossover, and the AWD system has been further refined for earlier detection and better power distribution. The ground clearance is an ample 8.7 inches. The maximum payload capacity ranges from about 1300 pounds to about 1450 pounds. The base towing capacity is 1000 pounds, but you can increase that to 1500 pounds with proper equipment, which is available.
