Subaru will jump into the electric vehicle fray next year with a crossover co-developed with Toyota Motor Corp. alongside Toyota's new bZ4X. Meanwhile, the brand will continue to expand its trim offerings with a dedicated Wilderness line to bolster its off-road lineup, which begins this year with the Outback and will come soon to the Forester, Crosstrek and Ascent.
There is still no word, however, as to when or where the promised "global strategic SUV" previewed in Subaru's 2018 five-year business plan will show up, and in what form, or whether it is still in the plan.
BRZ: The sporty coupe receives its first redesign in the second half of 2021, featuring a new, larger, naturally aspirated 2.4-liter, four-cylinder boxer engine with 228 hp and 184 pound-feet of torque that replaces the previous 2.0-liter. The redesign, coinciding with that of its Toyota GR 86 twin, allowed for exterior styling changes as well as interior refinements, including a new 7-inch digital instrument cluster screen.
