Broken Arrow, OK., December 5, 2018 –


In an effort to support animal welfare and work to make a positive impact, Ferguson Subaru supported the Broken Arrow Animal Shelter by providing pet supplies that will keep shelter animals happy, healthy and ready for a safe and loving home. The donation was made as part of a larger Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA) initiative called “Subaru Loves Pets.” 

Throughout the month of October, Ferguson Subaru asked our team-members, our Subaru customers, and the Greater Tulsa-Metro public to help collect much needed pet supplies. Items asked for included pet food, collars, leashes, towels, blankets, grooming supplies, and water bowls. Ferguson Subaru also provided “Shelter Supply Kits,” which included items such as toys, reusable water and food bowls, wipes, etc. 

Since 2015, Subaru retailers across the country, including Ferguson Subaru, have partnered with local animal welfare organizations through the Subaru Loves Pets initiative to impact over 109,000 animals in need. 

At Ferguson Subaru, we are committed to keeping all animals—including those in shelters—safe and healthy. The Subaru Loves Pets initiative reflects our goals to improve animal welfare and the lives of those in our community.

2019 Subaru Ascent

Safety is paramount to Subaru. When designing the all-new 2019 Ascent - the largest and most versatile Subaru ever - Subaru was committed to making sure its safety capabilities would meet the highest standards. Now, that commitment has been affirmed. The 2019 Subaru Ascent has been awarded top safety honors.

IIHS assesses a vehicle's crashworthiness with six tests: moderate overlap front, driver-side small overlap front, (new) passenger-side small overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints & seats. According to IIHS, "The Ascent earns good crashworthiness ratings across the board and comes with standard, superior-rated front crash prevention." [1]

To earn the IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+, a vehicle must receive a “Good” rating for five tests of high-speed front and side crash tests, a rollover test, and evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. New for 2018, the passenger side small overlap crash was added to the evaluations and a vehicle must also receive a “Good” or “Acceptable” rating. 

Standard 180-Degree Front Camera

The Ascent is designed to give you peace of mind when you're behind the wheel. The Ascent is built upon Subaru's strongest foundation yet - the Subaru Global Platform - in addition to offering some of the most advanced active safety systems. Plus, new features such as the Smart Rear-View Mirror and 180-Degree Front Camera enhance visibility. And, advanced lighting technology, including the available LED Steering Responsive Headlights with High Beam Assist, helps make nighttime driving even safer.
