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!

Ferguson Subaru Sponsors 2016 Ruts N' Guts Cyclocross Races

Ferguson Subaru was honored to sponsor the 7th annual, 2016 Ruts N' Guts. Ruts N' Guts is a weekend-long, professional off-road bicycling, also known as cyclocross, competition event. The competition consists of Category 1 and Category 2 races, sanctioned by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the international governing body for the sport of cycling. 

Ruts N' Guts draws cyclocross athletes from around the world, and has put Broken Arrow, Oklahoma on the map in the world of international cycling. As in years past, the 2016 Ruts N' Guts was held at Broken Arrow's Chisholm Trail Park; directly next to the Northeastern State University's Broken Arrow campus. This year the race organizers also included a Craft Brew Festival for participants to enjoy. 



Ferguson Subaru brought out several new Subarus to showcase on the cycling course; including a lifted 2017 Subaru Outback with Off-road Package!

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.
