2020 Subaru Ascent: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - May 17, 2019

Model Preview

In 2019, Subaru introduced its largest model ever, the all-new Ascent. This three-row crossover gave the brand the cargo and passenger room it had lacked for many years, and it continues improving, as the 2020 Subaru Ascent will arrive with a few small tweaks.

The 2020 Subaru Ascent will arrive with the same two-box design that debuted in 2019. This design features minimal drama with its smooth body panels and upright styling. New on the outside of the 2020 Ascent will be a power rear gate lock. Inside, much of the same will continue, as the 2020 Subaru Ascent will roll in with the same sharp design it boasted in 2019.

With no changes in store, we expect the 2020 Subaru Ascent to arrive with the same list of standard features the current model has. This list includes eight-passenger seating, 18-inch wheels, projector-beam headlights, four USB ports, tri-zone climate control, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and tons more.

Under its hood, the 2020 Subaru Ascent will arrive with the same 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will pump out 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. This power will head through a continuously variable transmission and out to all four wheels via the standard asymmetrical all-wheel-drive system.

The 2019 Subaru Ascent is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ model thanks to its “Good” scores in all the key crash tests and “Superior” front-crash avoidance rating with its standard EyeSight system that includes forward automatic emergency braking. This will remain the same in the 2020 Ascent, but it will gain a new standard rear-seats reminder that flashes a message telling the driver to check the rear seat for pets or children before exiting the car.

Pricing & Release Date

Subaru expects to have the 2020 Ascent in showrooms in the summer of 2019. Pricing will range from $33,005 to $46,055 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Subaru Ascent will compete with the Chevy Traverse, Dodge Durango, and Honda Pilot.
