Generations

Travel back in Subaru’s history and you’ll discover that the Outback began in 1995 as a premium trim level for a Legacy wagon. The following year it began acquiring characteristic features we’ve come to expect—like a raised suspension.

Now in its fifth generation, the Outback pleases buyers by splitting the difference between a wagon and an SUV. It offers a choice between four- and six-cylinder engines, and Subaru has made shifting choices easy by offering only one: a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with paddles that control a six-speed manual mode. All-wheel drive is standard on all Outbacks.

2010 - 2016 Subaru Outback

Major changes included:

In 2010, Subaru redesigned the Outback again, bringing in the third generation. This revision gave the Outback a sharper and more aggressive exterior look and a more spacious cabin. The third generation launched with a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter engine as standard and an all-new 256-horsepower, 3.6-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder as an option. In 2013, Subaru restyled the Outback's front end, added in a standard CVT and pushed the base 2.5-liter engine to 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway -- a 2 mpg and 1 mpg increase, respectively.

2005 - 2009 Subaru Outback

Major changes included:

The 2005 model year ushered in the second-generation Outback and with it came a revised 3-liter engine, which Subaru tweaked to deliver 250 horsepower. Along with the revised six-cylinder came a new turbocharged 2.5-liter engine with 250 horsepower in the wagon variant, a fully revised exterior and a new interior. In 2005, Subaru added variable valve timing to the base 2.5-liter engine, pushing its power to 175 horsepower. Additionally, 2005 also brought the addition of the base 2.5-liter engine to the sedan model. In 2008, Subaru dropped the Outback sedan, leaving only the wagon variant to carry on, and slightly revised the front and rear fascias.

2000 - 2004 Subaru Outback

Major changes included:

In 2000 the Subaru Outback debuted as its own model -- previously it was a trim level for the Legacy model -- with a all-wheel drive and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that was good for 165 horsepower. This new model came in a pair of body styles: sedan and station wagon. After just one year on the market, Subaru introduced a new 3-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine that produces 212 horsepower for the VDC and L.L. Bean Edition trim levels in the station wagon format. In 2002, the six-pot engine joined the sedan variant for the first time.
