Performance and Efficiency

Shoppers might not expect an SUV to offer as much fuel economy as a sedan, but the Forester is unlike your typical crossover. Underneath the hood, you will find a 2.5-liter, 182-horsepower SUABRU BOXER® engine. The engine features auto stop-start technology to proactively save fuel at each stop sign or stop light in Old Forge, PA. Thanks to its powertrain, the Subaru Forester can even travel up to 26 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, making it the daily commuter's best friend!

Balancing out this new crossover SUV us a Lineartronic® automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) and the standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive.
