2018 Subaru Ascent: Three-Row Possible Tribeca Replacement Seen In Its Full Details
The 2018 Subaru Ascent is set to enter the market before the end of 2017; but beyond that, the new vehicle seems to have a lot in common with Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer. It is now evident from confirmed photos that it is a three-row job and would be great for family vacations and hauling stuffs around. That is however not all; the Subaru Ascent seems to be a replacement for the Tribeca which was retired in 2014.
The Subaru Tribeca dominated the niche market between 2006 and 2014 before its final retirement, but it now appears the 2018 Subaru Ascent is a resuscitation of the Tribeca with greater features. In terms of three-row seating and external designs, there is not much difference between the Ascent and the Pilot and the Explorer, according to Car and Driver. Meanwhile, there are also similarities between the Ascent and Forester or Outback wagon among other spacious vehicles such as Dodge Durango and Buick Enclave.
It must be pointed out that since the Subaru Tribeca was discontinued three years ago, many Subaru loyalists were not able to access bigger SUV offerings from the carmaker. Subaru customers were forced to patronize other car brands to meet their bigger SUV needs. The launch of the Subaru Ascent will however, solve that problem, and many Subaru enthusiasts are expected to return to camp this time around.
Engine Specs for the 2018 Subaru Ascent
It is expected that the engine of the Subaru Ascent will be similar to the 2017 Subaru Impreza. It could, however, be modified for the bigger Ascent with stronger steel integrated for higher strength and durability. This will be helpful for rough handling and to keep the car intact in case of crash incidents, per Auto World News.
Insiders said the 2018 Subaru Ascent comes with a 2.0-liter flat-four engine that could churn out 250 horsepower. Considering that the Ascent is larger and bigger, the engine may be ramped up to 3.6-liter flat-six engine for greater durability and strength. Analysts are certain that car will be all-wheel drive with a variable automatic transmission system. The car may feature at the New York Auto Show or at some other auto show before the end of 2017.
