Subaru Ascent Engine Specifications


To get started, let's check out what's going on underneath the hood of this SUV.

The standard direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine produces a whopping 260 horsepower and provides an EPA-estimated 500 miles on one tank of gas.

For those who crave adventure and have a love of off-roading-or for those who simply want extra traction control during those snowy and icy winters-the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system was designed to provide optimal balance and even power distribution to help you maintain stability no matter what terrain you're traveling over.

Towing provides you the freedom to haul whatever you want wherever you want to go, and the options are limitless in the 2020 Ascent thanks to its maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped with the available Class III trailer hitch.

Interior Cabin Comfort

Inside you'll be able to comfortably fit seven to eight passengers depending on which seating arrangement you choose. There's 19 standard cup and bottle holders throughout the vehicle, so no matter where you're seated, you'll be able to keep your hands free.

The available 54-inch power tilt/sliding panoramic moonroof brings a touch of the outdoors in and spreads across all three rows of the vehicle.

Driver-Assist Safety Features

The Ascent comes standard with the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology system, which includes a plethora of safety features designed to be a second set of eyes on the road ahead.

  • Eyesight Adaptive Cruise Control

This system is ideal for those who commute on the highway daily, because it will help you maintain one set speed and automatically adjust it to keep a safe distance behind cars traveling in front of you.

  • Eyesight Lane Departure and Sway Warning with Lane Keep Assist

This feature helps you stay securely in the center of your lane by alerting you when it senses you drifting.

  • Pre-Collision Braking

This system helps you mitigate or avoid a collision by alerting you and applying brake pressure when it senses and impending accident.

  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management

This feature will reduce power from your engine when it senses an impending frontal collision to minimize damage on impact.
