CHICAGO -- Subaru of America took the stage at the Chicago Auto Show here to introduce its 50th anniversary models a week before the automaker celebrates its milestone year.
Each model comes in the same color exclusive to the limited-run edition: Heritage Blue.
The models have a circular 50th anniversary badge on the front quarter panel and a 50th anniversary logo on the front seats and floor mats.
The only interior color is black and it comes with silver stitching throughout and silver seat belts.
Subaru is limiting the anniversary batch to 1,050 units each for the Outback, Forester, Crosstrek, Impreza and Legacy.
Subaru's performance-focused models are in smaller amounts: 250 for the BRZ, 600 for the WRX and 200 for WRX STI.
No anniversary edition of the new Ascent three-row crossover will be offered.
Each anniversary model is based on Subaru's Limited trim line except the Forester, which is based on the Touring trim line.
The anniversary package brings a price increase across the 2018 model lineup. Pricing ranges from $29,200 for the Impreza sedan to $42,055 for the WRX STI. Both prices include shipping.
The 50th Anniversary Outback costs $35,995 for the version with the 2.5-liter engine and $38,195 for the 3.6-liter. Both prices include shipping.
Pricing for the 50th Anniversary Crosstrek is $30,800, which includes shipping.
Subaru's American arm was established on Feb. 15, 1968, as part of a second wave of Japanese automakers in the U.S. It's on a 74-month streak of monthly year-over-year sales increases in the U.S.
Subaru sold 647,956 vehicles in 2017 in the U.S., its best year ever.
The anniversary models are on sale now.
