Subaru Ascent, Subaru's new third-row SUV

Ever since Subaru discontinued the Tribeca, our Tulsa-area shoppers have been asking us, when is Subaru going to offer a third-row SUV? Today, Subaru gave us the answer! Say hello to the Subaru Ascent! 


Granted Subaru has only revealed an Ascent concept car, at this point in time. However, the production Ascent will undoubtedly be very similar. 

We can hear the praise already. For our Tulsa-area families who have to haul around little ones, a third-row seat is often a necessity. The new Subaru Ascent gives hope to Oklahoma, Subaru shoppers who need an SUV larger than the Outback. 


Both the design concept and the production Ascent will feature an all-new turbocharged direct injection boxer engine. The Ascent production model will be based on a modified version of Subaru's Global Platform; which debuted on the 2017 Impreza and can be found on the newly redesigned 2018 Crosstrek. Additionally, we know the upcoming Subaru Ascent will come standard with Subaru's famous Symmetrical All-Wheel drive.


We know the announcement of the new Subaru Ascent is welcome news for our Tulsa-area shoppers have been waiting for a third-row, Subaru SUV. Your wait is almost over. Ferguson Subaru, Northeast Oklahoma's premiere Subaru dealer, is excepting the new Ascent three-row crossover to arrive at our Broken Arrow dealership early 2018.

Best Vehicle For Tulsa Families, the Subaru Outback

Tulsa families are busy. Whether mom and dad are hauling the family to Soccer City Tulsa, driving over to the park for Tulsa Little League baseball practice, or simply waiting in school drop-off lines; the average Tulsa family spends a significant amount of time in the confines of the family vehicle. 

With so much time spent inside the family vehicle, it's important to have a vehicle that fits every varying need of the on-the-go, city living lifestyle. Roominess, comfortability, price, and versatility are characteristics usually found on the top of our Tulsa families' lists. For many Tulsa families, the perfect vehicle for the job is the Subaru Outback! 

2017 Subaru Outback

The industry's top critics have also taken note of the Outback's advantage as the family vehicle. 

The 2017 Subaru Outback recently won U.S. News & World Report’s Best Wagon for Families for the sixth year in a row as part of their 2017 Best Cars for Families awards. U.S. News & World Report praised the Outback stating, "The 2017 Subaru Outback has class-leading cargo capacity, excellent passenger space, and a well-built and durable cabin that make it a good fit for families on the go." 

The Subaru Outback also earned a spot on KBB.com's 2017 "12 Best Family Cars" list. The Subaru Outback is a multi-year KBB "Best Family Car award winner." KBB.com's editors had the following to say about why the Subaru Outback continues to make it on the top of their list, "The 2017 Subaru Outback is among the most practical, sensible and versatile vehicles money can buy. Many ingredients go into this Subaru's secret sauce, from its standard all-wheel drive to its fuel efficiency, advanced safety features and stellar resale value. Each is impressive on its own. Combined, they make the Outback a standout." 

For 2017, Subaru introduced a new flagship model with Outback Touring. The legendary crossover stands out with an exclusive, eye-catching Brilliant Brown exterior color. Additional defining features include: unique Outback badging, low-profile roof rails in a silver finish along with lower cladding, 18" wheels with a machined finish and dark gray accents, and a Touring-specific dark gray grille. Watch Ferguson Subaru's Joe Glenn present the 2017 Subaru Outback Touring in this video.

It's Almost Here, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek!

The redesigned 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is set to debut March 7th at the Geneva auto show. The only teaser photo that Subaru has released hints at a new Crosstrek with a few design cues taken from the XV Concept that was shown during the 2016 Geneva Auto Show; design cues such as a sporty side profile and similarly designed taillights. 

Watch the unveiling of the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek at the following web address:

With its outdoor attitude and outstanding ground clearance, the Subaru Crosstrek has become a favorite among our Tulsa-area shoppers; including Rick Couri. Local voice of Tulsa football, Rick Couri, takes his Subaru Crosstrek on fishing and scuba diving adventures

Not much is known about what Subaru's engineers have done to the all-new 2018 Crosstrek. We expect the 2018 Crosstrek will be fitted with Subaru's new global platform underpinning that was introduced on the 2017 Subaru Impreza. The 2017 Impreza was also equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque; which we expect to power the 2018 Crosstrek, as well. 

Subaru will undoubtedly continue its reputation for industry-leading safety with the release of the 2018 Crosstrek. The 2017 Crosstrek was awarded a 2017 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS and received the highest rating of five stars for its overall rating by the NHTSA. The 2018 Crosstrek will likely be equipped with Subaru's award-winning Eyesight driver assist system that offers drivers crash prevention technologies, such as: Reverse Automatic Braking, Automatic Pre-Collision Braking, Blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist function, and lane departure warning.

Check out demonstrations of Subaru's Automatic Pre-Collision Braking and Reverse Automatic Braking systems!

Putting Subaru's Reverse Automatic Braking System to the Test, with Joe Glenn

When it comes to safety, nobody does it better than Subaru. Subaru is an industry-leader in safety. In fact, Subaru is a leading choice among parents with teen drivers. When you choose a Subaru, you’re not just choosing a car. You're choosing a company with a lifetime commitment to protecting those you love. 

Subaru's EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is the culmination of everything Subaru engineers know about safety. It gives drivers an extra set of eyes on the road and, if need be, an extra foot on the brake. That extra foot is Subaru's Reverse Automatic Braking system. 

Reverse Automatic Braking works to detect objects directly behind your Subaru, when backing at a low speed. Using four ultra-sonic sensors installed in the rear bumper, the system detects objects behind the vehicle and can even bring the vehicle to a stop. 

Joe Glenn, from Ferguson Subaru, put his full trust in Subaru. He demonstrated the Reverse Automatic Braking system on a new 2017 Subaru Impreza by standing directly behind the vehicle, while in reverse. Watch Subaru's Reverse Automatic Braking in action, below! 


Subaru's Reverse Automatic Braking system provides drivers with greater safety and peace of mind when reversing. As you can see from the video, Subaru's Reverse Automatic Braking system did the job perfectly, keeping Joe safe and unharmed. 

Subaru's Reverse Automatic Braking is just one of many power additions to Subaru's suite of advanced Eyesight safety technologies. Eyesight technologies have helped Subaru's lineup of 2016 and 2017 models receive the highest possible rating for front crash prevention from IIHS. 

If you have any questions about the Reverse Automatic Braking system, Subaru's Eyesight technology, or any other Subaru related questions give Joe Glenn at call at 918-258-1800, or stop by Ferguson Subaru in Broken Arrow, OK. Ferguson Subaru is Oklahoma's number one Subaru dealer.

Subaru North American Tour - Subaru WinterFest 2017

Subaru of America has announced a U.S. tour! While not a traditional music tour (Subaru makes industry-leading cars and SUVs, and is not a band), there will be live music at each location. Subaru is calling the tour 'Subaru WinterFest 2017' - not to be confused with Tulsa's annual WinterFest

Subaru has branded the WinterFest tour as a "one-of-a-kind, multi-city mountain destination and lifestyle tour for passionate winter warriors." Winter warriors are enthusiasts of winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding. 


Subaru owners are known for their love of the outdoors. There are many winter warriors who rely on their Subaru vehicles, with Symmetrical All-Wheel drive, to carry them to their favorite mountain slopes. 

The 2017 Subaru WinterFest tour will span eleven states across the country, make 15 stops, and visit 12 of the country's most popular winter mountain resorts. Subaru owners will be able to enjoy daily giveaways, gear demonstrations, food and beverage, live music, and more! Subaru is partnering with POWDR Adventure Lifestyle CO. to make the tour possible. 

The 2017 Subaru WinterFest will feature live music sponsored by Harman Kardon, performed by local DJs and bluegrass, indie-rock and acoustic rock bands at each location, along with complimentary hot chocolate, s'mores and craft OZO coffee. Attendees will also be encouraged to participate in daily giveaways and try the latest gear from partners such as: Under Armour, Klean Kanteen, Thule, Lib Tech, and Nordica. 

Subaru has long taken pride in being a brand to facilitate outdoor passions, including winter sports. Subaru all-wheel-drive vehicles help to power skiers and snowboarders to countless winter adventures. 

While there are no winter mountain resorts in Oklahoma, and the tour makes no stops to Tulsa or Oklahoma, we encourage all our Oklahoma Subaru owners, who have a passion for winter sports, to attend one of the Subaru WinterFest 2017 events. We just ask that you tell us about your experience when you get back!

Tribeca's Replacement - The Next Large SUV from Subaru

There are many appealing qualities that can explain Subaru's success in America and Oklahoma. Two of the most notable include Subaru’s long-lasting value and symmetrical all-wheel drive. In fact, 96% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today, and Subaru has the best-selling all-wheel drive cars in America for the past 6 years! 

Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive is standard on their entire line-up of vehicles, minus the BRZ. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continually keeps the power routed to all four wheels, ensuring an outstanding grip in snow, rain or rough road. It's one of the top reasons Tulsa area drivers are turning to Subaru. 

While all these qualities are great, there's one thing that's been missing in Subaru's arsenal, for quite some time, and that is a large SUV. Not since Subaru discontinued the Tribeca has there been a Subaru vehicle that can fit up to seven passengers. We hear it all the time from our customers. They want a Subaru that can hold more people. After all, using Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive to explore the great outdoors is much funnier when you can bring along friends and family. Subaru recently unveiled a new concept that gives hope for such a vehicle! 


In November, Subaru introduced the all-new Subaru VIZIV-7 SUV concept at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. The name gives away its biggest appeal, VIZIV-7; as in it can carry up to seven passengers! VIZIV is a name derived from Vision for Innovation. The VIZIV-7 concept has three-row seating, and gives us a prototype for the next large SUV from Subaru. 

At the release of the Subaru VIZIV-7 SUV concept, Subaru promised a production version of the large SUV will be introduced to the North American market in early 2018. Subaru's corporate executive vice president, Takeshi Tachimori, stated “We know customers in this segment want a full-sized vehicle and the next 3-row from Subaru will be the biggest Subaru vehicle ever.” 

So to our Tulsa-area shoppers, be patient. It won't be long before Ferguson Subaru will be able to offer a 7-passenger Subaru! The large SUV will undoubtedly be fitted with Subaru's all-important symmetrical all-wheel drive. Just imagine the possibilities!
