What Can You Expect from the 2024 Outback? – The Subaru Outback has been known as an elegant and functional crossover SUV, so knowing that the new 2024 Outback will be available soon is excellent news. The Outback is pretty capable in an on-road situation, but it’s proven to be reasonably reliable in an off-road setting. The durability is likable, and the crossover has impressive features (and performance) that everyone will love.
The Exterior Design
The 2024 model will likely get a refresh or a significant model change. There would be a new (front) fascia with a hexagon grille, a new bumper, and headlights. It means that you can expect upgrades on both the interior and the exterior.
The ride would get higher ground clearance, new roof side rails, and a new underbody. The front light of the Outback is always classy with its facets and cuts, but you can expect updated and fresh changes. There would be a restrained grille with a catchy Subaru logo. Thanks to the muscle body collections and rugged appearance, the back area will have this robust design. You can always choose the Wilderness trim if you want the best off-road experience.
The Interior Cabin
Vibes and comfort are the main focus of the ride, so don’t be surprised if better materials and layout have been implemented. The materials are premium to last longer, yet they are soft to the touch. There is a big display screen on the center console with leather controls. Expect heated seats and also the adjustable 8-way passenger entrance seats. New technologies and features would be included within the Outback, including safety features, such as lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and things alike.
Powertrain and Performance
There would be two different engine options for the 2024 Outback. The first and basic engine would be the four-cylinder unit with a 2.5-liter capacity that delivers 182 hp and 176 Nm of torque. The second unit would be the turbocharged 2.4-liter unit, generating 260 hp and 277 Nm of torque. The latter one would be installed in the backwoods.
Both units would be paired with a DCT (Continuous Adjustable Transmitting). You can also get the all-wheel-drive system as standard or as an extra. The basic unit is good but not very good as it is pretty sluggish and slow. It reaches 60 mpg in 8.5 seconds, which isn’t impressive. Transmission isn’t unique either, although it isn’t an overall bad experience. If you want something comfortable to use, especially for a road trip, the powertrain can be a good option. But the powertrain isn’t designed for racing.
Release Date and Price
The Outback is predicted to be available around July 2023. At this time, people are welcome to reserve or pre-purchase the vehicle. For the tag price, the starting price is likely to be set at around $27,100. The higher the trim, the more you will have to pay. All trims require you to spend about $200, at least. For further info and details on the 2024 Outback, we still need to wait for the company’s official announcement.
