The biggest change for the new 2020 Subaru Outback in Bend OR will be its shift to the same new global platform as the Subaru Legacy, which promises increased rigidity, sharper handling, and improved refinement.

A turbocharged Outback also seems a sure bet to return to the lineup, replacing the old six-cylinder 3.6R, which is expected to use the same turbocharged 260-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine first introduced in the Subaru Ascent. All-wheel-drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) will be standard on all models and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer with 182 horsepower will remain the base engine.

Based on specifications released, we can also expect the optional 2.4-liter turbocharged engine to send the Outback from 0-60 in less than seven seconds, an 11.6-inch tablet-style infotainment system, and improvements to the Subaru Eyesight system including DriverFocus. Safety still takes the front seat in the Outback, and in addition to stellar crash-test results, Subaru will continue to provide a suite of driver-assistance features on every model of the 2020 Outback.

The Outback's interior design will also likely match the new Legacy very closely. Otherwise, the new Outback should come with a vibe similar to what it has always had, retaining its rugged image and practical appearance.

Why you should consider the 2020 Honda CR-V

Though the 2020 Honda CR-V in Bend OR is a decent choice, the 2020 Subaru Outback leaves it in the dust. For more information on why the Subaru Outback beats the Honda CR-V, stop by Subaru of Bend for a test drive.
