2019 Subaru Forester SUV Boxer Engine & e-Boxer Hybrid System
The 2019 Forester is built on the Subaru Global Platform to deliver significantly higher levels of driving pleasure, agility, crash protection, ride comfort and quietness. Arriving at Subaru retailers later this year, the all-new Forester will be available in standard, Premium, Limited, Touring and new Sport trim levels. All are powered by an enhanced direct-injection, 182 hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder BOXER engine featuring Auto Stop/Start and paired with a standard Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission). Also standard on all trim levels is Subaru’s legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.
e-Boxer combines Boxer engine and electric technology
Subaru will use the newly-updated 2.0-liter direct injection horizontally opposed engine plus electric technology producing the "e-Boxer". It will use a lithium-ion battery, and Subaru says it will include SI-DRIVE. With the 2.0-liter gas engine coupled with the electric motor, the Japanese automaker says acceleration of the Forester e-Boxer will exceed that of the 2.5-liter gas model.
The 2.0-liter boxer engine produces 145 PS (143hp) and 188 Nm (139 lb-ft) of torque. The AC synchronous motor produces 13.6 PS (13.4 hp) and 65 Nm (48 lb-ft) of torque. The system is mated to a full-time all-wheel-drive system, and Subaru’s Lineartronic CVT automatic transmission. Subaru did not release fuel mileage estimates. This will give the e-Boxer a total output of 187 lb-ft of torque. The new 2.5-liter Forester gas engine produces 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque.
Subaru also announced the Forester e-Boxer will come standard with X-MODE for extreme off-road use and EyeSight for improved safety. Subaru announced the new 2019 Subaru Forester hybrid model will be sold in China and now the Japan market. It’s not clear if Subaru will also bring the new 2019 Forester “e-Boxer” hybrid to U.S. shores. Stay tuned.
