2020 Outback Earns spot on Autotrader’s list of "Best New Cars for 2020"

The 2020 Outback earned a spot on Autotrader’s list of Best New Cars for 2020 for meeting the needs of the modern family with emphasis on value, available features, ride quality, and capability.

2020 Subaru Outback

Autotrader based the winners on a wide-ranging set of criteria, including interior comfort and materials, build quality, available features and ride quality. The cars and trucks on Autotrader’s list offer a significant value for the asking price. 

Brian Moody, Autotrader's executive editor, had the following to say about the Outback's latest achievement, "Subaru has been on a roll for a long time, improving their cars and SUVs year after year. The Outback, like all Subarus, has a fun and functional vibe that’s exactly in line with an adventurous and uniquely American lifestyle.[1]

The all-new 2020 Outback is well-suited for our Tulsa-area families who like to get out and explore. The sixth-generation Outback delivers the optimal blend of SUV capability and car-like ride and handling. With 8.7 inches of ground clearance, and Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, little can hold you and your family back from exploring the great outdoors. 

The legendary SUV offers an, all-new, tablet-style 11.6-inch SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia systems with integrated center information display. New XT models are fitted with a 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine that produces 260-horsepower. And, for the first time in Outback, available in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot provides smooth internet access via high-speed LTE™ communications.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek To Get 2.5-liter Engine Option

With features such as standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, available X-MODE® with Hill Descent Control, and a standard 8.7 inches of ground clearance; the Subaru Crosstrek has been a favorite model among our Tulsa-area Subaru customers. The Crosstrek is well suited to take on roads that others can’t. However, even with all its capabilities, there has been one area of concern that we've heard from multiple Crosstrek shoppers - engine power. 

The current 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is fitted with a 2.0-liter engine that produces 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. With its current engine, the Crosstrek trails behind other models in Subaru's line-up. That's all about to change. Automotive News is reporting that Subaru plans to equip the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek with a 2.5-liter engine option.

2020 Subaru Crosstrek

Tom Doll, CEO of Subaru of America, made the big announcement at the 2020 NADA Show, in Las Vegas. In the report, from Automotive News, Doll is reported as saying, "One of the things that our customers were telling us about the Crosstrek was it was maybe a little underpowered with the 2.0-liter engine. Well, the 2.5-liter engine will solve that problem." 

While not confirmed, it's believed that the 2.5-liter engine planned for the 2021 Crosstrek will be the same [or very similar] to the engine that can already be found on the 2020 Subaru Forester, 2020 Subaru Outback, and 2020 Subaru Legacy. That 2.5-liter engine produces 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. 

Doll did not say when the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek will be available for sale; however, he did expand upon trim levels. According to Doll, the new 2.5-liter engine will only be available on the 2021 Crosstrek Limited trim and a new 2021 Crosstrek Sport trim.

 Ferguson Subaru is eager to bring the upcoming 2021 Subaru Crosstrek to Tulsa, Oklahoma. We know our Tulsa-area shoppers will appreciate the increase in engine power.

Subaru Earns KBB 2020 Best Resale Value Award

Kelley Blue Book, the leading provider of new and used vehicle information, announced today that Subaru has been recognized as Best Brand in the 2020 Best Resale Value Awards. 



Earning the 2020 Best Resale Value Award marks the fourth time Subaru has won this prestigious award, capping previous wins in 2011, 2015 and 2016. These awards highlight Subaru's segment-leading value and class-leading durability, reliability, and safety. 

Helping achieve the honor was, in large part, due to the fact that five Subaru models won "Best Resale Value," in their respective segments. 

2020 Subaru Outback
Best Resale Value: Midsize SUV – 2-row 


2020 Subaru Forester
Best Resale Value: Compact SUV 


2020 Subaru Crosstrek
Best Resale Value: Subcompact SUV 


2020 Subaru Legacy
Best Resale Value: Midsize Car 


2020 Subaru Impreza
Best Resale Value: Compact Car 


The Best Resale Value Awards recognize 2020 model-year vehicles for their projected retained value through the initial five-year ownership period. Since depreciation (or loss of value) is typically a car-buyer’s primary expense during ownership, these awards are designed to help consumers make more informed car-buying decisions. 

Each vehicle's projected resale value is specific to the 2020 model year.

Subaru and participating retailers [such as Ferguson Subaru] have donated a total of more than $145 million to a variety of national and hometown charities through the Share the Love Event. 

The 2019 Subaru Share the Love Event will run from November 14, 2019 to January 2, 2020. During the event, Subaru of America will donate $250, for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased, to a charity of the customer’s choice. 

Customers who purchase or lease their new Subaru at Ferguson Subaru, during the event can choose to have their donation go to one of four national charities or one local Oklahoma charity. 

The four national charities that can be selected include: 
• The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) 
• Make-A-Wish® 
• Meals on Wheels America 
• National Park Foundation 

In addition to the four national charities listed above, Ferguson Subaru customers have the choice of donating to one Oklahoma charity - Hope Is Alive. Ferguson Subaru has teamed up with Hope is Alive for the third year in a row for the Subaru Share The Love Event. 





Hope is Alive is a wonderful, life-changing, Oklahoma based non-profit. Hope is Alive exists to radically change the lives of drug addicts, alcoholics and those that love them; to inspire hope, build foundations and change the lives of people affected by addiction.

Through last year's Share The Love Event, Ferguson Subaru was able to donate over $33,500 to Hope Is Alive! 



Ferguson Subaru will donate $50 to Hope Is Alive for every new Subaru purchase or leased, during the Share the Love Event; regardless of if the customer chooses Hope Is Alive as their charity or not. 

If a customer does choose Hope Is Alive, Hope Is Alive will receive a $300 total donation - $250 from Subaru Of America [on behalf of the customer] and $50 from Ferguson Subaru. Additionally, for every Subaru vehicle routine service visit during the Share the Love Event, Ferguson Subaru will donate $5 to Hope Is Alive.
