Subaru to show next-gen Outback this year

The all-new Legacy sedan, unveiled in Chicago, hints at changes for the redesigned Outback.

Subaru has apparently confirmed plans to debut its next-generation Outback wagon later this year, according to Car and Driver.

The company unveiled the redesigned 2020 Legacy sedan this week at the Chicago Auto Show. The new Legacy is the latest model to be underpinned by the Subaru Global Platform architecture, significantly increasing chassis rigidity for an improved ride and reduced road noise.

The sedan's higher-riding platform mate will presumably benefit from the same upgrades, including a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine with 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. Inside, the Outback will likely get Subaru's tablet-style 11.6-inch multimedia display.

The 2020 Legacy will land in showrooms this fall, paving the way for a likely arrival of the Outback closer to the end of the year.
