The all-new 2024 Subaru Ascent is going on sale in the second half of 2023, delivering minor updates only. Therefore, the price of this SUV will remain intact, per source. The Ascent model is a three-row SUV, competing in a popular segment with rivals such as Kia Telluride and Chevy Traverse. The exterior will introduce new exterior colors and small visual upgrades.
The interior will probably get more high-tech amenities, while its design will be unchanged. Under the hood, Ascent SUV has a potent and reliable gas engine, so a new unit is not an option yet. Some rumors are predicting a hybrid powertrain, but that won’t happen just yet. In any case, a new ascent is on the way, and here is everything you need to know.
The next 2024 Subaru Ascent might be refreshed with a new appearance. This SUV will reportedly gain more aggressive styling, sharper headlights, and refreshed taillights. Moreover, new all-terrain tires will be added to certain trim levels. Subaru’s Wilderness trim level could become available too.
Right now, Subaru offers this off-road version in Outback and Forester SUVs. The current model introduced new Onyx Edition, and new exterior colors, including Cinnamon Brown Pearl and Autumn Green Metallic paints.
Subaru Ascent Interior
The interior of the 2024 Subaru Ascent will receive minor updates only. Everything inside the cabin looks fresh and modern. There will be three rows of seats and a room for seven passengers. The interior is spacious enough and the comfort is good. The next Ascent will gain a couple of small upgrades. For a start, a new infotainment system is on the way.
On top of that, this model will introduce new safety aids. However, all of the new aids will be available as an option. We think that the standard and optional upholstery will remain intact. On the other hand, Subaru will most likely reduce the number of physical buttons. Besides that, the rest of the cabin design remains unchanged.
Engine Specs, Transmission, MPG
Under the hood, the 2024 Subaru Ascent will hide the same engine as the outgoing model. It is a well-known and relatively new 2.4-liter engine. It is a turbocharged four-cylinder Boxer gasoline engine with 260 horsepower. On top of that, this engine is capable of producing 277 lb-ft of torque.
As before, Subaru will continue to offer the same continuously variable transmission (CVT). With this powertrain, Subaru Ascent provides good acceleration and solid 23 mpg combined. The new engine will not happen anytime soon, although a hybrid powertrain is a possibility for the 2025MY.
2024 Subaru Ascent Price and Release Date
The price of the 2024 Subaru Ascent will not increase, so the new model will be available for $34,000. On the other hand, the range-topping Ascent Touring trim level will cost around $50,000. The sales will begin next fall, so the new Ascent is one year away.
