For each models, Subaru commonly creates four year of life cycle and the most recent is the Impreza that leave the Forester and Outback behind. As we know, the last generation of Outback was available in 2014. It is not something too much if we start waiting the new 2018 Subaru Outback to come out soon. We expect that there will be significant update for its appearance with the same platform and the same size.

For its external appearance, there will be LED headlights, redesigned front lights, redesigned tail lights, large fog lights for the front fender and restyled look. 2018 Outback will get bump-proof plastic body kit that is inherited from the previous model to keep its rugged appearance. It will be constructed on the existing platform with all-wheel drive system. In short, the exterior will be more robust and aggressive compared to the previous model.


The cabin is still the same as the existing model with the different in each trim as well as media system. Subaru will complete it with some new technology such as pre-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane guidance and others. For those who anticipate the higher model, likely they will receive heated rear seats and powered tailgate in 2018 Subaru Outback.


Under the bonnet, Subaru will support it with B4 engine and 2.5 liter. Rumors mentioned that there is a big possibility for the company to introduce their new B6 engine to complete 2018 Subaru Outback. Sadly, there is no information available for its engine details. We think right now, it is reasonable to give 3.6 liter aspirated engine that is capable to provide 270 BHP. It would be odd for Subaru to use 2.0 liter turbocharged boxer engine for this SUV. If they keep the same engine, it can be the four-cylinder 2.5 liter and Lineartronic CVT as well as new Partial Zero Emission Vehicle to develop its efficiency and output. Another report mentioned that Subaru might have a plan to give plug-in hybrid engine but it doesn’t offer significant change for its performance.

Release Date and Price

2018 Subaru Outback is expected to come for its release date in the autumn of 2017 with the launch that should be started in the summer of 2017. It will have new and higher quality components as well as safety systems that will make the price for the basic models will be increased that is about $28,000 we can expect.
