What’s Coming For The Future Of Subaru?

Future Models, Technology, New Models

Have you heard of The Subaru Global Platform, or SGP? Pine Belt Subaru’s automaker spent a whopping $1 billion on the new platform that will support all new-generation models. It’s really been a positive move for our Subaru dealer NJ, especially with the new Impreza and 2018 Crosstrek. You’re probably wondering what’s to come with other models like the Legacy and WRX. Well, here’s what we know, along with some info about two new models joining the lineup.

The Future

Forester – The next model to get the SGP, sticking to the 5 year life-cycle Subaru follows. The 2019 will be completely remodeled and will arrive at our Lakewood car dealers sometime towards the end of 2018.

Outback – Our wagon has been selling like crazy, even without a remodel. It will receive the SGP in 2019 and continue to be popular for customers looking for an all-wheel-drive SUV alternative.

BRZ – You’ll have to wait until 2020 for a second-generation of this sports coupe. It will be the second to last model to get the SGP but word on the street is a turbo engine added to the 2.0-liter boxer.

Legacy – The new SGP will come in 2019. Did you know this is the only sedan in America that comes with all-wheel-drive as a standard feature?

WRX & WRX STI – Next up to get the new platform, arriving to Pine Belt Subaru in 2019. A full remodel is expected and although not confirmed, we’re crossing our fingers for a new DA20 2.0-liter DIT power plant as well as the return of a new 5-Door hatch body style.

All New Models

Ascent – A 3-Row crossover coming in 2018. Seating 7-8 passengers, it’s the biggest vehicle Subaru has ever built and will be on a modified version of the SGP.

Plug-in Hybrid – The global debut comes in 2018 on an existing nameplate. It’s not official but Pine Belt Subaru is thinking it could be on the new Crosstrek, attracting Millennials.

Subaru EV – It’s not coming until 2021 or 2022 but it will be an all-electric vehicle built on one of our existing nameplates. Stay tuned for more details!

They Paid WHAT For The Baby Driver Subaru?

Baby Driver - Subaru Models

Pine Belt Subaru has been following a specific Ebay listing since it first caught our eye. You might be wondering why our Subaru dealer NJ cares about something on Ebay but it’s because of a famous Impreza that joined the Hollywood scene this year with the release of Baby Driver.

You’ve Never Heard Of Baby Driver?

We might be biased, since the hero stunt mobile used in the making of the movie is a Subaru, but Baby Driver is one of Pine Belt Subaru’s favorite flicks of 2017. If you haven’t seen the film yet, we highly recommend it. The improbable stunts pulled off by this baby in the opening scene were quite impressive. It’s amazing to us that it’s still in one piece, too.

What The Buyer Is Getting

There were 71 total bids made, which eventually ended at $69,100. That’s a pretty hefty price tag considering this vehicle has been through the ringer and is far from mint condition. But even with it’s unimpressive condition and 158,000 miles, it’s famous for goodness sake! Pine Belt Subaru thinks $69k is a steal.

A few adjustments were made to this 2006 Impreza WRX. It started out grey but as seen in the movie, it now struts its stuff wearing bright red. It also said goodbye to all-wheel drive and is now a rear-wheel drive vehicle. One last thing, the seller does admit that it has a few scratches and dings. It also no longer has a warranty package available.

No FOMO At Pine Belt Subaru

A $69K used vehicle might not rev your engines. But don’t worry because Pine Belt Subaru has a wide range of affordable preowned vehicles to choose from at our Lakewood car dealers. The only request we make is that you refrain from driving your new ride like Baby does in the film.
