Under-The-Hood Changes For The New 2020 Outback 

For drivers from Dallas TX looking for a safe and reliable wagon, the 2020 Outback comes standard with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system on all models. This feature optimizes balance and traction to ensure that the weight distribution is well-adjusted between both sides of the Outback. The end result is increased control and performance on the road or rough terrain. Each wheel is individually controlled so that power can be adapted to respond to the drive. 

A turbocharged engine returns to the Subaru Outback for the first time since the 2009 model. The 2.4-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine provides you with up to 260-horsepower and up to 277 pounds-feet of torque. In terms of fuel efficiency, the turbocharged engine is still capable of providing up to 30 miles-per-gallon on the highway and 23 miles-per-gallon in the city. Each Outback XT comes with the turbocharged engine standard. 

For all other models, the 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine utilizes a naturally aspirated design and direct injection to give you up to 182-horsepower and up to 176 pounds-feet of torque. Whichever model you choose, you'll find that each of the redesigned Outback SUVs comes with a Lineatronic CVT transmission that has an 8-speed manual mode. Paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel make it easy to shift between gears. 

Sit inside the 2020 Outback and you'll find a lighter and more responsive suspension system. It's been redesigned with new hollow stabilizer bars on both the front and rear suspension. A new internal rebound spring helps provide a smoother ride, while the overall design is stronger. 

Safety Features In The 2020 Outback That Enhance The 2019 Version 

Safety continues to be a central focus for the Subaru Outback, and the 2020 model builds on the Subaru Global Platform to improve on safety. The base structure of the Outback is a stiffer, more rigid design compared to the previous model. This redesign is built to absorb more crash energy in front and side crashes when compared to the 2019 model. 

Eight standard airbags protect you and your passengers in case of an accident. A new driver knee airbag was added in response to data and research to help minimize possible injuries. You'll also find a new Front View Monitor that provides drivers with a 180-degree view of your blind spots to help you stay aware on the road and when parking. You can view images on the 11.6-inch screen. 

Other driver assist features, such as the EyeSight system ,come standard on each trim option of the Outback. In addition to the Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Centering features, the DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System is a Segment-exclusive addition to the 2020 Outback. It makes use of an infrared camera and facial recognition software to monitor the driver. If it notices that you're fatigued or distracted, it will set off audio and visual warnings to bring you and your passengers back in focus. 

An Over-All Design To Make You Stand Out 

The all-new Outback is redesigned with a rugged, yet functional appearance that reflects its active lifestyle. The profile panels are thicker, and the tailgate has been raised for a more dynamic look. At the front of the Outback is a hexagonal grille flanked on both sides by LED fog lights. 

Inside the Outback there is a more open concept that is spacious and luxurious. This includes Nappa leather seating, chrome-plated door handles, and high-gloss black moldings accent the interior. With a wider rear gate and up to 75.7 cubic feet of cargo space, you have the space you need for almost any trip.
