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!

All-new 2017 Subaru Impreza Heads to Oklahoma!

From the Hoosier state to the Sooner state, the 2017 Subaru Impreza is on its way! The first all-new 2017 Impreza rolled off the assembly line at Subaru's production plant in Indiana, Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. (SIA). There are many Subaru fans, including those at our dealership, who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the all-new Impreza! 

The new 2017 Subaru Impreza is the first vehicle built using the new Subaru Global Platform architecture that is designed to enhance driving pleasure, agility, comfort, and safety. The 2017 Impreza is equipped with new driver assist technology, and new multimedia features. As with previous generations, every Impreza is equipped standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a SUBARU BOXER engine. The new '17 Impreza will be available in base, Premium, Sport and Limited trim lines, and is available in sedan and 5-door models. 

Best of all, the new 2017 Impreza will be built, right here, in America! The Impreza has historically been produced only in Japan; however, Subaru decided to move the production of the Impreza to the U.S. because of increasing American demand for Subaru vehicles - like eight consecutive years of increased Subaru sales in the U.S! 


“In a time when some manufacturers are moving work out of the United States, we’re proud to be bringing Subaru Impreza production to the heartland of America,” said Tom Easterday, Senior Executive Vice President of SIA. SIA is the first U.S. auto plant to achieve zero landfill. By reducing, reusing and recycling, SIA avoids sending any waste to a landfill for disposal. 

It's roughly a ten hour drive from Subaru's Indiana plant to our Broken Arrow, Subaru dealership. While we know it won't make a straight shot to Broken Arrow, we can tell you that it is on its way! The 2017 Subaru Impreza is almost here! 

Be one of the first, in Oklahoma, to own the 2017 Subaru Impreza.

Our Pursuit Of Making Knowledge Available To As Many Minds As Possible

Ferguson Subaru is proud to call Oklahoma home. While there is plenty for Oklahoma to be proud about, it's well known that the education system in our state is hurting. According to the National Education Association, Oklahoma ranks 49th in expenditures per student [1] and 48th in average salaries for public school teachers [2]

On top of being paid well below the national average, Oklahoma teachers, on average, spend up to $500 of their own money, each year, on supplies for their classrooms. Needless to say, it's not always easy to be a teacher in the state of Oklahoma. 

At Ferguson Subaru we have a Love Promise commitment to making a positive impact in the world in which we live and work. It’s our aim to spread this impact as far as we can. As part of our Subaru Loves Learning initiative - to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible - Ferguson Subaru teamed up with Kendall Whittier Elementary for our 2016 Subaru School Supply Drive. 



Kendall-Whittier is an elementary school located in north-central Tulsa, just west of the University of Tulsa campus. The school has been providing students in the area a place to grow and learn for generations. Kendall-Whittier Elementary is a lighthouse to our community. According to the school, “As a Title I school, we don’t require that students bring school supplies at the beginning of the year to respect the limited financial situations of many of our families.” 

For the 2016 Subaru School Supply Drive, Ferguson Subaru raised school supplies during the month of August. At the end of the month, our Ferguson team, along with Fergie Bear - our Tulsa-area community mascot - drove a stuffed Subaru Crosstrek to Kendall-Whittier Elementary, and presented teachers with the donations. In the spirit of making a positive impact, Ferguson Subaru also donated $500 to Kendall Whittier Elementary! 

 
Kendall-Whittier Elementary Principal, Ronda Kesler with Fergie Bear


Ferguson Subaru’s focus on education in the month of August and September was part of the Subaru Love Promise, a pledge to do right in our communities and the world.

The Perfect Back-To-School Vehicle For Your Family, the 2016 Subaru Impreza!

The school year is just around the corner. Parents, teachers, and students, across the Tulsa Metro, are all preparing for the first day of class. Coweta students are the first to hit the classrooms, on August 11th when Coweta Public Schools is scheduled to return to class. Broken Arrow, Bixby, and Owasso Public Schools are all set to begin classes on August 18th, while Jenks Public Schools begins the following day. Tulsa Public School students return August 22. And finally, Sand Springs students will enter the classroom on August 23rd. 

While teachers and students prepare to return to the classroom, parents are getting their vehicles prepped for shuttle duty; as they begin the hustle and bustle of getting their students to and from every school function and activity. While it’s important for parents to run through their student’s back-to-school supply checklist, it’s also important to make sure the family vehicle is up to the task for another school year. 

Safety and practicality are both important factors for a student-hauling vehicle. Style might be a desirable characteristic, as well – let’s face it, no kid wants to get dropped off at school in an eyesore. So what vehicle does Ferguson Subaru recommend your family for the return of school? How about the 2016 Subaru Impreza

The 2016 Subaru Impreza was recently named to Kelly Blue Book’s '10 Best Back-To-School Cars of 2016' for its value, style, and safety! It’s a vehicle both our Tulsa-area parents and students can be proud of! 

The Impreza is built around Subaru’s proven Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame body structure for exemplary collision protection. It’s equipped with active safety features including a rear-vision camera, Vehicle Dynamics Control that combines stability and traction control functions, and 4-wheel disc Anti-lock Brake System. 

Thanks to these active safety features the 2016 Impreza earned a 2016 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK award and, when equipped with optional EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, earned the 2016 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+.  


Furthermore, the 2016 Subaru Impreza achieves the highest fuel economy of any gasoline All-Wheel Drive car available in the United States! That means as a parent, you can take your student to more school activities, while stopping at the pump less often. And to top it all off, with its head-turning style, we’re sure your kid will relish being dropped off, in front of their friends, in the 2016 Impreza. 

Before the school year official kicks off come on down to Ferguson Subaru, in Broken Arrow. Test drive the new 2016 Subaru Impreza with your kids. You’ll be hooked from the start in the 2016 Impreza. The 2016 Subaru Impreza is a clear, smart choice.

Ferguson Subaru Sponsors Another Great Bark Walk

Since the year 2000, Ferguson Subaru has been a presenting sponsor of the annual Bark Walk. Once again, Ferguson Subaru was at the 2016 TBRO Bark Walk! This year we brought out a red 2016 Subaru Forester, a blue 2016 Subaru Outback, and a white 2016 Subaru BRZ

 


The Tulsa Bark Walk is a fun-filled family event held every year, in April. The event includes pet adoptions, food trucks, $20 microchipping, and even has a kids zone! The past two years TBRO has held the event at Chisholm Trail South, next to the NSU Broken Arrow campus. The event is a wagging' good time for the whole family, and Ferguson Subaru is proud to be a long-time sponsor of the event. 

TBRO is a 501(c)3 non-profit; volunteer ran organization committed to rescuing unwanted and abandoned purebred Boxers in the state of Oklahoma. According to the group's Facebook page, they started out rescuing dogs on a small scale in the Tulsa area, and grew to become a statewide organization. TBRO, "rescues nearly 400 Boxers a year from all over the state of Oklahoma. Many of our dogs available for adoption and our foster homes are located in Oklahoma City, as well as Tulsa." 

Funds raised from Bark Walk help support The Boxer Rescue of Oklahoma by allowing the organization continue to save the lives of homeless animals and help promote animal welfare.
